Chris Hemsworth is without a doubt one of the best fit for essaying the role of Thor. The actor with his chiselled bod and amazing gruff voice makes for the perfect God Of Thunder. Hemsworth has played the role of Thor in eight Marvel films till now. While the actor's most popular work remains to be his Thor stint, he has been a part of other action films such as Snow White and the Huntsman, Red Dawn, Blackhat, Men in Black: International and the recently released Netflix film Extraction. The Australian actor has managed to wow in all of these roles and there's no doubt that he can pull off action like no other.
