The 10 Best Superhero Performances in Movies

Premiere Of Marvel Studios' "Marvel's The Avengers" - Arrivals

Chris Hemsworth as Thor

Thor is an interesting superhero, because he’s not human or really even alien (although you could totally call him an alien if you wanted to). No, Thor is a god with god-like power and pretty sweet hammer. It requires a really gifted actor to take the over-the-top Shakespeare nature of Thor and make him feel real and relatable to a modern audience. However, that’s exactly what Hemsworth has been able to do in both Thor films and in The Avengers through heart, humor, and a whole lot muscle.
