Anthony Hopkins gave him some advice regarding getting into character and the costume helping.

Joss Whedon is not writing The Avengers 2.
He goes into how Thor’s character arc is different from other superheroes because he loses his power and then has to regain it in Thor.
He also mentions how he tried to work out the family dynamic of acting within a family of gods.

Clare Kramer asks how it was to film the capsule scene and Hemsworth discusses the technical aspects of that.

Chris mentions his hopes for the character’s growth of Thor during Thor 2.

If Chris Hemsworth were going up against anyone in Cabin in the Woods as himself he says that he would choose one of the more nonthreatening characters.

Yes, the Thor panel at Wizard World was awesome. To see Chris Hemsworth live is amazing.

He was a convention virgin, aw. Unfortunately this means that some people took advantage of him. First one girl asked for a birthday hug. My birthday was right around this time as well but anyone who has ever attended a convention knows that is not proper convention etiquette. The crazy thing was this happened at least two more times. This was a really great way for those chicks to get out of paying for the expensive professional Thor photo op (they had friends taking pictures of these encounters). If I were working the con I would have put a stop to that post haste. You just don’t let fans onstage during a panel. It’s not really safe for the actors and definitely affects the time of the panel.

These videos were filmed by Hot Donna (which is great because her camera has a slightly higher MP count than mine). However that was because I was waiting in one of the Q&A lines to ask a question. They did cut it off before I was able to ask my question. It would have been about the brotherly dynamic between Thor and Loki. However someone asked a similar question prior to that so I was going to change it to a silly question, “What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?”. My actual guess is that he doesn’t eat food like that because well, look at him!

This may sound mean but so be it. There were a lot of non questions asked (and no I’m not mainly referring to the children in attendance). When you compare the the Thor panel to the Buffy panel that we later attended you just see a huge surge in the IQ of the attendees. So people were constantly telling Hemsworth how hot he is and congratulating him on his baby. Maybe if 1 person had done those things it wouldn’t have seemed quite so irksome but it was repeatedly.

At any rate Hot Donna was still able to record a few pretty cool questions that participants asked.

missemmamm, Chris Hemsworth, Hot Donna

Yes, I did convince Donna to pay for part of the photo op because I adore Thor. She said “I didn’t know you liked Thor that much?” and then I looked at her like duh. After the op she went on and on about his beautiful blue eyes. I now see them in the first photo above. However I have a hard time looking people in the eyes and they do these very quickly so I didn’t notice live.

Press passes to the convention were provided to both Hot Donna & myself gratis from the awesome PR team at Wizard World.
The next Wizard World Comic Con takes place in Chicago this August. For more info on their upcoming cons please visit the Wizard World site.
