Thor: Ragnarok Chris Hemsworth

Thor is set to appear in Kevin Smith’s Jay & Silent Bob Reboot…or at least, Chris Hemsworth is. Smith and Hemsworth posted to Instagram to reveal that the Avengers star is making an appearance in the film. You can see the posts below.

Hemsworth joins a cast that includes Smith himself, Jason Mewes, Brian O’Halloran, Jason Lee, Shannon Elizabeth, Rosario Dawson, Joey Lauren Adams and a host of other returning View Askweniverse players. The film will take jabs at reboots, remakes, and sequels while simultaneously being all three at the same time.

Saban Films will release the film in theaters with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment distributing overseas. It is expected to release later this year, though a premiere date has yet to be announced.

Sometimes I like to highlight unknown actors in our industry – and I think *this* fresh face from young Hollywood might soon find fame and fortune on the Silver Screen! He’s newcomer @chrishemsworth and I’m predicting right here that Chris is gonna take Tinsel Town by storm one day! The boy is like a god who thundered down from another universe! But it’s not some kinda dark world because this guy is no black hat – he’s an artistic avenger who’s just looking to book his first gig on the way to his ultimate endgame: a S.A.G. card! So I’m gonna take a chance on this up and coming charismatic kid from Australia and help him out on his star trek with a low key role in @jayandsilentbob Reboot. He’s a killer comedic actor but I keep telling him that the *real* money’s in @marvelstudios movies. In a just world, he’d get to at least screen test for them. Regardless, I’ll keep you posted on Chris’ Hollywood progress. He should go far, because Chris is a super nice charmer who’s crazy talented and incredibly generous with his time. If you can get past the guy’s unorthodox looks, you’ll find a whole Hems worth of raw, untapped talent! #KevinSmith #chrishemsworth #jayandsilentbobreboot #avengers #avengersendgame #thor #thorragnarok #centrfit #grateful #bucketlist #class #melbourne
