Marvel announced recently that Chris Hemsworth has been cast to play the lead in their newest comic-book-blockbuster – Thor, which is currently set to release in the summer of 2011. Thor is one of the characters needed for The Avengers, which includes Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Captain America (and later incarnations included Spider-Man).
