There are very few superstars who rose above the brand of WWE, and Hulk Hogan is definitely one of them. In fact, he’s one of those wrestlers who made WWE a household name. There are countless entertaining matches that the veteran gifted us in his glorious reign. Although he couldn’t be a part of the in-ring action anymore, there’s one good news for the fans of the Golden Era’s superstar. Chris Hemsworth aka God Of Thunder will be seen playing the legendary wrestler in his biopic.
The Thor actor will be seen playing the 66-year-old wrestler in his biopic backed by Netflix.
Speaking to Total Film, Chris Hemsworth revealed that it’s going to be a fun project and said, “This movie is going to be a really fun project. As you can imagine, the preparation for the role will be insanely physical, will have to put on more size than I ever have before, even more than I put on for Thor.”
The Thor actor further added, “There is the accent as well as the physicality and the attitude.” Chris had earlier revealed that this film is going to show the audience the “unseen side of the wrestling world.”
Earlier in an interview with Screenrant, Chris revealed that although he hasn’t read the script but is looking forward to it. The Thor actor also stated that he’s really ‘fascinated’ and ‘intrigued’ by the world of pro-wrestling, and why not considering that Hulk Hogan is a name to reckon with in the wrestling world.
Chris said, “Look, I haven’t read a script yet. I know it’s being written now and worked on. I know very little about that. It’s sort of in the process now.”
