X-Men: Luke Hemsworth, Brother of Thor Star Chris Hemsworth, Is Ready to Play Wolverine

Chris Hemsworth has owned the role of Thor since 2011 and is currently preparing to make his ninth MCU appearance in 2022’s Thor: Love and Thunder. Chris and Luke’s youngest brother Liam was even in the running to play Thor up until the final round of casting, and Luke had the opportunity to cameo as on-stage Thor in “The Tragedy of Loki of Asgard” at the beginning of 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.

During a recent interview with Screen Rant, Australian star Luke Hemsworth revealed that he would love to take on the new version of Wolverine when he is brought into the MCU. The older brother of MCU mainstay Chris Hemsworth had this to say when asked about his thoughts on playing a superhero:

I would love to. I grew up with them. I learned to draw through comic books, copying comic books since I was about 10 years old. Spawn was a big one for; I really loved Todd McFarlane’s Spawn. And then Batman – I would have fought Rob Pattinson for those gauntlets. And Wolverine! I’m like, “Come on, just pass them on, mate. Let’s give it to another Aussie.” I’ll have to grow some chest hair, but I’m ready for Wolverine.

Luke Hemsworth makes quite the interesting point mentioning the idea of being the second Australian to take on the role of James Logan after Hugh Jackman wielded the adamantium claws in ten movies over seventeen years. This is far from the only connection he has to both the MCU and Marvel in general as well.
