With tough training
Chris Hemsworth becomes Hulk Hogan
Chris Hemsworth is preparing for the upcoming filming of the sequel to “Tyler Rake: Extraction”. The tough training also makes him fit for a special role: He becomes Hulk Hogan in a biopic.
Chris Hemsworth has to steel his body: The Australian actor is currently preparing to film the sequel to the Netflix action “Extraction”, as he reveals in an Instagram post. In a short clip you can see the actor shirtless boxing and doing various exercises such as squats. He shares his exact training program with his fans in the description.
Colleagues like Jake Gyllenhaal or Jason Momoa are impressed in the comments. Josh Brolin, on the other hand, jokes, “As soon as I have eaten this pizza, I’ll do it too!” The next film projects, in which Hemsworth has to shine physically, are also already in the starting blocks. Pre-production for the “Mad Max” prequel “Furiosa” is due to begin in November. And: Soon the “Thor” star will become wrestler icon Hulk Hogan in a biopic.
Even if, despite his 1.90 height, he is missing a whole eleven centimeters from the blond wrestling giant – Hulk Hogan personally gave him to understand in November 2020 and June 2021 that the actor can visually hold a candle to him. After filming “Thor 4”, the wrestling star posted a picture of Hemsworth and assured him that he could easily beat his former opponent André the Giant. He had previously published a collage of Hemsworth and himself to compare the similar mountains of muscles.
The as yet untitled film is intended to shed light on the early days of Hogan’s career in the 1970s and show how he went from being a nobody to one of the sport’s most famous figureheads.
