Thor was one of the most awaited movies after its teaser was shown during the credits of Iron Man 3. But will a relatively new actor, Chris Hemsworth, be the right match for a seasoned actor like Robert Downey Jr. when they face each other in the upcoming Avenger movie?

Chris was totally an eye candy in this film and he struts the strut only a guy who stands to gain an entire kingdom and scars to prove his conquest can. He may not be as seasoned as Robert but Chris sure was a good fit to the role. His smile can bring any woman non stop schoolgirl giggling feats like what it did to Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), a scientist who kept on physically hurting the Norse god of thunder. Chris is a good choice actually. It was said that during the audition Director Kenneth Branaghand Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige chose Hemsworth after a back-and-forth process in which the 27-year-old actor was initially dropped from consideration and then given a second chance to read for the part.

Natalie for her part was really credible for her role as the astrophysicist who cannot seem to get the break that she needs. She was giggly when around Thor, feisty when all her hard work was confiscated by S.H.I.E.L.D., and feeble when faced with uncertainty. Natalie took the role just because she found out Kenneth was directing the film “”I just thought it sounded like a weird idea because Kenneth Branagh’s directing it, so I was just like, ‘Kenneth Branagh doing ‘Thor’ is super-weird. I’ve gotta do it’,” said Natalie taken from an online article by ^ Douglas, Edward (2009-11-21). Natalie Portman on Why She Did Thor. SuperHeroHype.

The only complaint I have though for this film is that the story never established Loki’s (Tom Hiddleston) mischievous nature. It was too concentrated on making Thor powerful and arrogant that it completely forgot the nemesis. Loki was more on the shy, recluse younger brother than mischievous.
