So Thor Is A Big Metal Fan. We Approve.
We love it when an actor or actress turns out to be exactly the kind of person we hoped. Yes, Chris Hemsworth – AKA Thor AKA the most metal Avenger ever (apart from Iron Man who is obviously literally really metal) – is a big metalhead who boxes to Pantera and almost injured himself thrashing around to Metallica.
The chaps at Thrash Hits have pointed to a recent interview with Esquire that claims Chris is something of a big fan of Pantera, while Entertainment Weekly published an article saying that one of the actor’s very first albums was Metallica‘s Black Album.
“My cousin, who was educating me on heavy metal, bought it for me,” says the man himself. “I remember at the age of 11 pulling something in my neck from headbanging — being kind of semi-paralyzed from trying to mosh and outdo each other.”
What a total heavy metal LAD.
Thor: The Dark World opens internationally on October 30 and is, we’re fairly confident, going to be immense.
So Thor loves Pantera and Magneto loves thrash? Marvel’s doing alright, eh?
