'Avengers' Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth On Hypothetical Fight Between Thor and Iron Man (Video)
Robert Downey Jr., and Chris Hemsworth teamed up for an interview about The Avengers with The Hollywood Reporter. What better team could there be than Iron Man and Thor?
Downey and Hemsworth attended Disney’s D23 event over the weekend for a panel that showed off more footage from the highly anticipated film.
Downey and Hemsworth will star in The Avengers alongside Tom Hiddleston, Colbie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Ruffalo and Chris Evans.
The duo was having a good time on the red carpet, and spoke about the difference between being the title character in a film, and working in an ensemble cast.
“Workload is a little better because it’s spread across the team instead of you holding it all,” said Hemsworth.
“It was actually a pretty tough shoot. It was a very ambitious story, and a long schedule, but nobody had to work too hard,” said Downey.
THR also asked them what would happen if Iron Man and Thor got into a fight. While neither wanted to answer at first, Downey – who received a standing ovation when he walked into the Marvel panel – finally admitted that Tony Stark might be bested by Thor.
“Look at him – he’s a deity,” said Downey of Hemsworth. “I’m just a fella’.”
Many stars of The Avengers, including Johansson, Renner, Hiddleston and Smulders attended the event.
The D23 Expo, happening this weekend, brought together some of the biggest films coming out of the studio including Pixar’s Brave and Disney’s John Carter.
