Former WWE superstar Hulk Hogan took to social media on Monday to comment on actor Chris Hemsworth’s impressive physique.
Hemsworth, The Avengers actor, is gearing up to play the iconic professional wrestler Hulk Hogan in an upcoming biopic of his life. Hemsworth admitted in an interview this summer with Total Film, that he was going to have to “put on more size than I ever have before, even more than I put on for Thor.”
“This movie is going to be a really fun project. As you can imagine, the preparation for the role will be insanely physical,” said Hemsworth “And it’s not just the physical transformation, there is the accent and the attitude. I will also have to do a deep dive into the rabbit hole of the wrestling world, which I’m really looking forward to doing.”
The film is still in its development stage. However, it will focus on Hogan’s rise to wrestler and pop-culture success in the 1980s. It is under the direction of the Joker‘s Todd Phillips.
Hogan took to Twitter to let his followers know that Hemsworth is ready to play the role.
“He’s already there! He’s ready BROTHER!!!” Hogan wrote on Twitter. “But is he good looking enough to play me lol,lol,lol. HH”
Hulk Hogan Inspires Halloween Costumes
Hemsworth may be playing Hogan in an upcoming movie, but many of his fans dressed up as him this Halloween. Hogan was a fan favorite costume. No different from any other year, the former WWE wrestler typically inspires thousands to imitate his iconic handlebar mustache and du-rag. Hogan took to Twitter to retweet all of the Hogan costumes on the internet.
One user on Twitter posted photos of his infant portraying the wrestling legend.
However, the Hulk Hogan look isn’t just popular among babies and young children.

Hogan, now 67, helped lead the boom of wrestling in the 80’s when he joined the World Wrestling Federation (WWF now WWE) in 1983. In his nine years with the Federation, the wrestling star won the WWF Championship 5 times, second all-time in franchise history. He has made several returns to the WWE since his 1992 departure, including his current stint from 2018 to the present.
