Liam and Chris Hemsworth are on the verge of something highly improbable, if not totally unprecedented. Not only did both brothers hit the genetic lottery, but both are essential components of enormous studio franchises that will dominate the box-office this year. Liam, 22, laid the foundation for his character, Gale, in The Hunger Games, and has a role in the upcoming AARP action film, Expendables 2. Chris, 28, is, literally, a Norse god, playing Thor again in The Avengers, as well as the Huntsman in the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman.
What makes the Hemsworths’ current success so unusual is that it seems to contradict one of the quirky unwritten laws of Hollywood stardom, which seems to predicate that when brothers experience some renown in the movie business, one of them absorbs the celebrity and enormous success while the other operates in the shadows. Jeff and Beau Bridges. Matt and Kevin Dillon. Alec and Every Other Baldwin. (In a way, it’s not unlike Sith lords.)
It seems to be different for siblings of the opposite sex — Warren Beatty and Shirley MacLaine — and even sisters like the Redgraves. Perhaps it’s because once one brother becomes a “name” and personality, the other is handicapped by association and a too-similar persona. (Though being Oscar-nominee Randy Quaid’s brother didn’t seem to hinder Dennis.) Since the Hemsworth’s are arriving at relatively the same time, it will be most interesting to see which will emerge as the Alpha Aussie as their careers unfold. The brothers both seem to have stardom written all over them, so maybe they’re the exception to the rule? Or like the Wilson brothers — who once seemed equally poised for a similarly degree of parallel success, albeit in comedies — will they establish their Down Under version of an Owen/Luke pecking order.
Brothers have been known to co-exist professionally (Casey Affleck has the Oscar nom for acting, not Ben) but do you think there’s anything to this unwritten sibling-rivalry law? And if so, which Hemsworth do you think will prevail in the long run?
Avengers stars Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans have expressed interest in making cameo appearances in future Marvel Studios sequels.
The actors told MTV that they would like to reprise their roles in films such as Thor 2 and Captain America 2, but did not offer official confirmation that this will happen.
Hemsworth, who portrays the titular thunder god in Thor, also offered his thoughts on the potential direction of the Alan Taylor-helmed follow-up.
“Certainly the first one left with Thor needing to get back to earth and see Jane but there will be bigger problems as usual,” he said. “But my big concern is how is Thor going to come to earth and not call upon the rest of his buddies now?
“That will be the trick to conveniently kind of skewer them off to different sides of the globe.”
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige previously confirmed that Thor 2 will feature a “big villain” from the Marvel Comics universe alongside Tom Hiddleston’s returning Loki.
Thor 2 is slated for release on November 15, 2013, while Captain America 2 is slated for April 4, 2014.

Expect the unexpected in Cabin in the Woods!
Between filming Thor and The Avengers, Australian hunk Chris Hemsworth tested his skills in the horror film, Cabin in the Woods, that has finally found its way to the big screen.
Writer Josh Whedon’s fresh and savvy take on the horror genre is tough to accurately detail without entreating into Spoilerville, but here goes:
Five college kids, including a jock (Hemsworth) and his slinky girl-friend (Anna Hutchison), head up to, yes, a cabin in the woods. They rave about being “off the grid,” completely unaware that they’re being targeted.
That’s when the ingenious twists kick in.
The clever Scream-like tone allows for laughs (really!), gasps and a whole new appreciation for all things scary.
Cabin in the Woods is rated R and opens in theaters Friday. Us Weekly gives the film 3 1/2 out of 4 stars.
