Chris Hemsworth brushed his dirty blond locks behind his ear and prepped for an intense scene on the London set of Rush yesterday. The Ron Howard directed film is based on the true story of Formula 1 champ Niki Lauda and the 1976 crash that almost took his life. Chris portrays the role of Lauda's racing rival, James Hunt. Ron was lucky to get Chris on the project before he's called back to duty with The Avengers crew. Chris resumes his role as superhero Thor in the upcoming release, due out May 4, and it seems fans are eager to get a glimpse of their favorite Marvel superheroes together in one place. The Avengers trailer broke iTunes download records and was apparently viewed 13.7 million times in its first 24 hours of release. The blockbuster mania continues throughout June for Chris when he pops up on the big screen again, opposite Kristen Stewart, in the highly anticipated dark fairy tale, Snow White and the Huntsman.
