SNL Preview: Chris Hemsworth and Kate McKinnon Bring the Thunder
SNL’s post-40th anniversary run got off to a slightly-bound start with 50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson this past weekend, but will Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth bring the hammer down? Check out the God of Thunder opposite Kate McKinnon in the first promos for this weekend’s latest SNL!
Despite what a new Avengers 2 trailer would have you believe, Chris Hemsworth brings only the snow in his first SNL promo, as Kate McKinnon points out the serendipity of approaching snowstorm “Thor.” A few other bits fall flat, as one sees Hemsworth cryptically turning into a cyborg savior, but good grief, if we weren’t lost in staring at the towering star anyway.
Hemsworth will host his first SNL outing alongside musical guest Zac Brown Band, while fellow Avengers Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and even Robert Downey Jr. have all previously taken the stage. In addition to Michael Mann‘s Blackhat and the May Age of Ultron release, Hemsworth also has In the Heart of the Sea hitting theaters this December.
Another Avengers sketch seems like like a certainty, but after the promos above, what else can we expect of Chris Hemsworth and Zac Brown Band hosting SNL on March 7?
