Thor Star Chris Hemsworth Reveals He is Not His Son's Favorite Superhero

Arguably one of the most favorite Avenger of Marvel fans, Chris Hemsworth certainly did a great job in filling the shoes and bringing into life the God of Thunder, Thor. Surprisingly, though, he is not his son's favorite superhero, and more than that, it is actually someone from the other side of the fence, a DC character, and Hemsworth revealed it in a funny Instagram post.

Chris Hemsworth recently posted on Instagram about who his son's favorite superhero is and he seems quite hurt about the answer. In the post, he put the caption, "Holding my little man's hand and asking him the age-old question. "What do you want to be when you grow up"... "Dad I wanna be Superman" Lucky I have two other kids." Given the personality of Hemsworth, he was able to make a joke about it but boy, did that hurt.

Just like any typical kid, Hemsworth's son likes Superman. Despite having the same color as the cape, his son chose Superman over him, over Thor. DC heroes like Superman and Batman remained as iconic as they were when they first debuted and their names still ring ‘til today despite the huge success of the MCU making heroes like Thor famous.

In the same photo, it could be seen that Hemsworth is really preparing for his eighth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Thor: Love and Thunder. His arms are huge and it seems that he really bulked up for the upcoming role. More than that, he is back with his long locks of hair like the ones he donned in the first part of the MCU before his hair was cut in Thor: Ragnarok.

Thor: Love and Thunder is expected to delve into how Jane Foster would get to wield the Mjolnir this time and notably, a former Batman star plays the villain in the film with Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher. Maybe once his son sees the film, Thor would be Hemsworth's son's favorite superhero.

Thor: Love and Thunder will premiere in theaters on May 6, 2022.
