Chris Hemsworth is coming clear a couple of well-guarded secret we’re certain has possible haunted him for years.
He was once a DC Comics fan.
The actor — who has portrayed Thor within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) since 2011 — posted the proof of his DC Comics loyalty in a tweet Thursday.
“My younger self would be so disappointed,” he wrote with an accompanying childhood photograph of a child Hemsworth donning a “Batman” shirt.
Whereas Hemsworth’s confession that he wasn’t a childhood fan of the Marvel superhero he’s been depicting for a number of years could also be stunning to some, he’s not the one actor within the MCU who’s admitted they weren’t Marvel followers as children.
Tom Hiddleston, who performs Thor’s mischievous brother Loki, has admitted that as a baby he “loved Superman.” Benedict Cumberbatch, who portrays Physician Unusual, stated he had posters from Tim Burton’s “Batman” on his childhood partitions. And Chris Evans — who performs Captain America — informed The Hollywood Reporter in 2019 that he wasn’t actually into superheroes when he was a child and most popular “Looney Tunes.”
Properly, blow us up with some ACME dynamite as a result of every part we thought we knew in regards to the MCU has been shattered into smithereens.
