Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) star Chris Hemsworth is preparing to lace up the boots of the “Hulkster”. This is about the upcoming biopic of Terry Bollea also popularly known as Hulk Hogan although it is still not clear what will be the title of the movie but it is assumed that it would be “HULKAMANIA”. Chris Hemsworth’s Hulk Hogan movie is not going to premiere on the big screen as it is a Netflix original biopic. Netflix original products are a huge attraction for the viewers as the original content is doing great in the market recently. There have been mixed responses by the audience upon the casting of the film; many believe that Chris Hemsworth will do a phenomenal job at portraying the larger-than-life iconic American wrestler, while on the other hand some simply can’t put Chris’s face for the muscular wrestler as they believe the actor won’t do justice to Hulk’s role. Chris Hemsworth has already shown that he is more than capable of transforming his physique for a role as he has set a great example with the Marvel movies. But there is no denying the fact that this movie requires an even bigger transformation to create something like 24-inch pythons.

Will Chris Hemsworth be able to pull off the role of Hulk Hogan?

Chris Hemsworth is most well-known for his role in Marvel movies as the character of ‘Thor’ but his casting in the role of Hulk Hogan seems to raise quite a few eyebrows because some people seem to disagree that he actually looks like Hulk Hogan. To be fair here, Chris Hemsworth is the guy who played the role of a superhero with blond hair, blue eyes, muscular body frame and the Thor character’s red cape. On the other hand, Hulk Hogan is a professional wrestler and his colors are observed to be red and yellow, blond hair, blue eyes and of course a very muscular guy. Honestly Facially they don’t really look alike and they have a very different physique where Chris Hemsworth has more of a beach body ripped physique and Hulk Hogan has a very big, powerlifter’s shredded body like a which is quite obvious with his profession. Now in addition to having this massive physique, Hulk Hogan was also 6ft 7inches tall and fortunately Chris Hemsworth is also very tall at 6ft 3inches, but this four-inch difference is not really a problem as Hollywood knows their magic perfectly and knows their angles too. So, that being said it can be concluded that Chris Hemsworth is quite fitting for the role of Hulk Hogan in this biopic.
