“I’ll have to take more measure than ever before, even more than I’ve done for Thor,” said Chris.
He continued, “There is the accent as well as the physicality and the posture.”
Chris said he was excited about “diving deep into the rabbit hole” of the wrestling world.
Transformation: In conversation with Total Film, Chris said: ‘This film will be a very nice project. As you can imagine, preparing for the role will be insanely physical. ‘
While Chris is looking forward to the transformation to Hulk, he said the film has a long way to go before production begins because he hasn’t seen a script yet.
Earlier this year, the wrestling world reacted furiously after it was revealed that the Australian star to play will portray the ’80s icon in the upcoming Netflix biopic.
Struggling commentator Bryan Alvarez, 43, said Chris wasn’t buff enough to play Hogan, and he thought the actor was ‘normal size’.

Bryan, himself a semi-retired professional wrestler, said, “Chris Hemsworth just looks like a normal boy,” noting that he had a similar body type to Brad Pitt in the 2004 film Troy.
“He’s tall and yes, he has long blond hair, but … did you see Hulk Hogan in the ’80s? It’s at least twice the size of Thor, ”he continued.
Chris said in June Popsugar spoke candidly about the grueling process of gaining muscle and losing fat to play Thor in the upcoming Marvel movie Thor: Love and Thunder.
“I gained a lot – I gained about 20 pounds at one point. It was pure eating, eating, eating, exercising and exercising, trying to get as much sleep as possible – that’s the other third of the equation, ”he said.
Of his strict diet, Chris said he ate, “Chicken fillets and protein shakes, boiled chicken … clean meat, the right carbs.” Morbid things. ‘
