Olsen and Cumberbatch calls Hemsworth ‘godly man’
“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” actors Elizabeth Olsen and Benedict Cumberbatch are in agreement that Marvel costar Chris Hemsworth is the most handsome superhero of the bunch.
The Australian actor came up in a new video segment Olsen and Cumberbatch participated in for LADbible as part of the press tour for “Multiverse of Madness.”
During the game, the two actors were tasked with voicing their opinions on internet debates. After indicating if they agreed or disagreed with a statement, the stars would discuss their answers.
For the first question, Olsen and Cumberbatch were unanimous in their opinions on Hemsworth.
“Let’s talk about Hemsworth,” Lizzie said after she and her costar laughed.
“What about the other Chris?” Cumberbatch asked.
It’s unclear which Chris he was referring to since the MCU has two additional actors with that name: Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America) and Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Star-Lord).
“Well, Hemsworth is godly,” Olsen said.
“He’s a godly man, yeah he is,” Cumberbatch, who plays Dr. Stephen Strange/Doctor Strange, said in agreement.Hemsworth made his debut as Thor, the God of Thunder, in 2011’s “Thor.” Since then, he’s reprised the role in several MCU films, including two “Thor” sequels and the “Avengers” movies.
He’ll return as the character in “Thor: Love and Thunder,” in theaters on July 8.
Olsen, who portrays Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, said that on the few occasions she’s worked with him, she’s been in awe of his muscles.
“His arms… not like that, to me, is handsome. But it is kind of wild to see in real life,” she said.
Cumberbatch was in agreement, saying: “You kind of just keep looking and going, ‘Is that real?'”
“It’s way bigger than my head,” Olsen said of Hemsworth’s massive arms. “I also have a little head. But it’s way bigger than my head.”
“It’s a big, big arm. It’s a huge arm,” Cumberbatch concurred.
Olsen went on to say that it’s not Hemsworth’s ripped physique that makes him a standout.
“He also is charming and fun and kind and a good actor,” she said.
Olsen and Cumberbatch also agreed that there are a few other handsome Marvel costars, in addition to Hemsworth: Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon/Captain America), and Josh Brolin (Thanos).
