Chris Hemsworth: ‘My younger self would be so disappointed’ that I became Thor

Chris Hemsworth reveals a well-kept secret that we’re sure has probably haunted him for years.

He was a DC Comics fan.

The actor – who has played Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) since 2011 – has released proof of his loyalty to DC Comics idid not tweet on Thursday.

“My younger self would be so disappointed,” he wrote along with a childhood photo of a baby Hemsworth wearing a “Batman” shirt.

While Hemsworth’s confession that he wasn’t a childhood fan of the Marvel superhero he’s portrayed for several years may come as a shock to some, he’s not the only MCU actor who admitted they weren’t Marvel fans as kids.

Tom Hiddleston, who plays Thor’s mischievous brother Loki, admitted that as a child he “loved Superman”. Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Doctor Strange, said he had posters of Tim Burton’s “Batman” on the walls from his childhood. And Chris Evans – who plays Captain America – told The Hollywood Reporter in 2019 that he didn’t really like superheroes as a kid and preferred “Looney Tunes”.

Well, blast us with ACME dynamite because everything we thought we knew about the MCU has been shattered.
