Australian actor Chris Hemsworth is set to portray one of the biggest names in wrestling of all time, Hulk Hogan. Chris Evans, known as Captain America in the “Avengers” movie series, is one the first persons to give support to Hemsworth.

Wrestling fans will go wild as a biopic for wrestling legend Terry Gene Bollea, popularly known as Hulk Hogan, is already underway. Netflix had acquired the rights for the upcoming project, with “Joker’s” Todd Philips looking at directing the movie. Scott Silver and John Pollono will be on board as writers, while Michael Sugar, through his Netflix-based Sugar 23, and Phillips and Bradley Cooper, through their Join Effort banner, will produce the movie. Hemsworth and Eric Bischoff will also produce the project.

Apart from the information that big names will be working behind the camera, a teaser plot has been shared. The untitled biopic will focus more on Hogan’s humble beginnings to his rise to wresting stardom. Hogan, who will serve as executive producer and consultant, called his movie “origin story of the Hulkster and Hulkamania.”

Fans are also excited to know who will be cast alongside Hemsworth. Everyone is anticipating who will play the roles of Andre the Giant and Macho Man, who were once tagged as villains in Hogan’s early wrestling career.

Upon the official release of the news, Hemsworth “Avengers” pal Chris Evans immediately applauded his co-star. Evans shared on his Twitter: “This might be the best news I’ve ever heard.”

But not all are excited with Hemsworth playing Hogan, as the Twitterverse commented on Evan’s post. Some commented that the news is actually “a bad thing, not a good thing,” while others say there should not be any film celebrating a racist and anti-union personality.

The biggest statement so far comes from Paste Magazine, which stated that picking Hemsworth as Hogan is weird for several reasons. The article explained that the biopic will focus on Hogan’s pre-celebrity status, which is when he was around 20 years old, while Hemsworth is on his 30s already. Also, Hemsworth is not massive enough to play Hogan. The article simply implies that everything about the Netflix project is weird and wonders why the Thor actor even accepted it.

What do you think of Hemsworth’s new project?
