Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo say Thor 'best experience' on a movie set

Kiwi filmmaker Taika Waititi has officially cracked Hollywood. Early reviews of Thor have been stellar, but nobody is happier with the film, and with their subsequent close-knit friendships, than the stars themselves.

Waititi doesn't just direct, he also stars in the movie, and while you won't recognise him at first, as soon as he opens his mouth you'll know it.

In fact, 'The Hulk' Mark Ruffalo told Newshub Waititi "steals the show". 

"He needs his own standalone movie... Korg and the revengers," Hemsworth added.

It's obvious shooting didn't suck for any of these actors. Their strong 'bromance' is clear from the start.

"This was the best experience I've ever had on a set," Hemsworth said.  "Yeah... Me too," Ruffalo agreed.

"We laughed way too much," added Hemswoth.

This movie is Thor as you've never seen him before.. and nobody was happier about that, than the Aussie Norse god himself.

"I was pretty bored with myself," Hemsworth admitted. "And Taika agreed. He said 'I'm pretty bored with you too'. We wanted something wildly different [and to] keep his fingerprints all over the movie."

The one point of contention between the trio ? Waititi's 'New Zealander of the Year' award, which made him "unbearable".

"How long does that last?" Rufffalo asked us. "We had to call him Lord Taika," Hemsworth added.

Thor opens in New Zealand cinemas on October 26.
