Last week, Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland suited up as Spidey to visit a local Atlanta Children's Hospital while on-location shooting the Marvel Phase 3 adventure. The superhero charity train continued this week, as Thor: Ragnarok stars took a break from shooting their sequel to drop in on some unexacting kids. And trust us, they were all very excited!
Tom Hiddleston showed up at the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital wearing the same black suit he's been spotted shooting in on the streets of Brisbane this past week. He was accompanied by co-star and leading man Chris Hemsworth, who dropped by this Australia hospital in Thor's civilian wardrobe. He didn't need his Asgardian armor to be immediately recognized by the patients, though!
Marvel Studios and Chris Hemsworth shared photos from the fun meet and greet, which included an appearance by Thor's mighty hammer Mjolnir. The Thor pair even appeared on the hospital's own TV show called Juiced TV, which is a series created by the kids for the kids who are visiting the hospital. You can also see some of that video below. Chris Hemsworth had this to say about the experience.
"Met the real superheroes of the world at Lady Cilento Children's Hospital. A huge shout out to these brave kids!"
Earlier this week, production on Thor: Ragnarok shifted from Village Roadshow Studios in Queensland, Australia, to a location shoot in Brisbane, Australia. The city will be doubling for New York City. And the shoot includes Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth and Anthony Hopkins reprising his role as Thor and Loki's father Odin. It is also suspected that Benedict Cumberbatch will have a NYC cameo as Doctor Strange, but that hasn't been confirmed by Marvel at this time. About taking a break from shooting to head into the local Brisbane kids hospital, Tom Hiddleston had this to say.
"Unforgettable meeting all the children at Lady Cilento Children's Hospital. They're the real heroes."
Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston will be joined by Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Idris Elba (Heimdall) and Anthony Hopkins (Odin), plus Cate Blanchett's Hela and even more new characters. Jeff Goldblum joins the cast as the eccentric Grandmaster, alongside Tessa Thompson, who will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban who will add his might to the fray as Skurge. Marvel has set a November 3, 2017 release date for Thor: Ragnarok, which currently doesn't have any direct competition at the box office. Take a look at Mjolnir becomes vulnerable to the power of kids!
