Chris Hemsworth Is Set To Play Wrestler Hulk Hogan In New Biopic

Eat your vitamins and say your prayers because Hulkamania is about to run wild. Chris Hemsworth, the actor behind the legendary god of thunder Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is taking a break after his next Thor film to play the true god of thunder from the 80’s, none other than the Hulkster himself.

With a roar from the crowd unlike any other, Hulk Hogan, whether you love him or hate him, was a national icon on levels some people couldn’t believe today. A true hero to the American people and a true villain behind the scenes, always looking out for his number one man, himself. At one time he was so iconic and famous that when someone took his legendary leg drop they were given a 5 digit pay raise. However, in recent years Terry “Hulk Hogan” Bollea‘s fame has some what dwindled due to scandals upon scandals.

This biopic will mainly focus on the years mentioned above where the Hulkster was one of the biggest celebrities on the planet. The film will not enter 21st century when Hulk’s backstage politics and more recent scandals started to bring him down. Yet, it brings up the question of how far will the film go. Will it end after the 80’s? Or will it end after his departure from World Wrestling Entertainment (at that time known as the World Wrestling Federation)? It would be interesting to see it go past that into the realm of his World Championship Wrestling days, where his backstage politicking was one of the factors that led to the downfall of the company and the company being bought out by the previously mentioned WWE.

The film is said to be directed and written by Todd Phillips and Scott Silver, the director and writer of the upcoming supervillain film “The Joker“. Joining them will also be John Pollono who will help write the script. Nothing about the film is known fully yet because it will be released after Chris’ next Thor film, but right now Netflix is finishing up the deal and obtaining the rights to the film. So it is safe to say that after 2021, Hulkamania will be running wild on you, brother. God let us hope they don’t feature “Pastamania”.
