Thor in Action on Age of Ultron Set

He plays the Norse god of thunder Thor, whose weapon of choice is a mighty hammer.

And Chris Hemsworth proved on Friday that he has picked up the skill of hammering his point home as he was spotted wielding a massive mallet during an action sequence on set of Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

The 30-year-old put his impressive strength and muscular physique on display as he shot scenes in a forest in Guildford, England, where he slammed his hammer Mjolnir down onto what looked to be a futuristic tank.

The blonde actor wore knee high boots, a red cape, and body armour as a luxurious wig adorned his head.

Leaping into the air, the Australian slammed his mallet onto the surface of the high-tech looking contraption that appeared to have a mounted gun.
