Chris Hemsworth continues to be one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. He found fame by playing Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and was one of the first Avengers. Moreover, he remains one of the few original Avengers active in the MCU. In his latest interview, Hemsworth provides updates about his upcoming movie, which is inspired by the Immortal Hulk Hogan.

A biopic will be produced on the life of Hulk Hogan, as announced by the creators of the movie. Chris Hemsworth will be playing the character of the WWE legend. Many pictures have also shown the physical transformation that Hemsworth has gone through to fit into Hogan’s character.

The 39-year-old recently talked to Chris Van Vliet during a promotion tour for Extraction 2. Vliet asked Hemsworth about his upcoming movie and his favorite moments while working on it. He also requested that the Hollywood star shed light on the Hogan biopic and the latest updates about it. Unfortunately, Chris Hemsworth had disappointing news about the movie for the fans.

The movie star also said he is in contact with the producers and directors and is hopeful for the movie.

Hulk Hogan regrets using the leg drop as a finisher

Hogan is undoubtedly one of the greatest superstars in the history of WWE. He was responsible for bringing professional wrestling into the mainstream media to some extent. His finisher was considered to be the most dangerous move in the 1980s and 1990s. Very few opponents kicked out of the lethal leg drop during that time.

However, in a recent interview, Hogan said that he regrets using the move as a finisher. Hulk Hogan revealed that dropping on the hard mat almost every day for over three decades damaged his back beyond repair. He has had numerous surgeries on the back, but they have not provided much relief.

The 69-year-old regrets not using a finisher, which was relatively safer on his own body. He believes that the “sleeper hold” could have been a safe option. WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Piper was known not to use a sleeper hold as his finisher, and Hogan wished to use the same as a final move.
