Hemsworth's biggest recognizable role was playing the star of the movie "Thor", playing Thor himself as God of Thunder, in a film adaption of the Marvel Comics superhero. Surprisingly, Chris' brother Liam was initially supposed to be cast for this part, but after re-evaluation, the director Kenneth Branagh decided otherwise. Hemsworth also retook his role as Thor in The Avengers, also based on a Marvel comic about a team of superheroes assembled to protect Earth, which came out in 2012. Chris added on 20lbs of muscle for this role. A big hit at the box office!
Chris starred in the horror film "The Cabin in the Woods" executive produced by Joss Whedon and portrayed Jed Eckert in the Red Dawn remake.
Hemsworth is married to actress Elsa Pataky, whom he met through their mutual representative in early 2010. They made their relationship public at a party held by LACMA in Los Angeles on 25 September 2010, and got married three months later.
