Chris Hemsworth on his Avengers growth
Los Angeles - Chris Hemsworth believes his character Thor "matures" in The Avengers
The Australian actor - who portrays the muscular superhero for the second time in the forthcoming ensemble movie - reveals the story of the film means he becomes less of an "odd one out" and more thoughtful with his actions.
He said: "He was a petulant sort of kid at the beginning of Thor
and by the end of it hopefully you walk away thinking that he is matured and there was a grounded quality to him that there wasn't before. He's not quite the odd one out as much as he was in Thor
."'Defined by morals'
However, Chris Evans - who plays Captain America - believes his character becomes more "impersonal" because he has been moved from the past to the present and does not know the world he has come to.
He added to Entertainment Weekly: "Who does he have in this world? Nobody. Rogers is kind of defined by his morals and values. In the 40s there were much more value on those things. Things are a little more impersonal these days." The Avengers
is due to hit cinemas in South Africa on April 26. The movie also stars Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Tom Hiddleston as villain Loki, and Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury.
A new trailer for the Marvel superhero film has been released, featuring previously unseen footage.
