Chris shot to stardom in 'Thor' in 2011 and has since had stand out roles in 'The Cabin In The Woods', 'Snow White And The Huntsman' and he reprised his role as the superhero in this year's 'Avengers Assemble'.

DreamWorks and Fox have teamed up to co-finance 'Robopocalypse', which is scheduled for released on April 25, 2014.

Chris is also set to play the titular character again in forthcoming film 'Thor: The Dark World', which is scheduled to be released in November 2013.
