Chris Hemsworth thanks well behaved Thor crowds

QUEENSLAND loves Thor and the hammer-wielding Norse god, or at least the actor who plays him, loves us back.

Hundreds of fans lined Albert and Margaret Streets yesterday for a glimpse of Chris Hemsworth and his Thor: Ragnarok co-star Tom Hiddleston as a key battle scene was filmed out in the open on the corner.

Hemsworth and Hiddleston, who collectively spent two hours yesterday posing for selfies with fans, took to social media to thank fans.

Hemsworth wrote on Twitter: "Thank you Brisbane for letting us disrupt the traffic for our little film #ThorRagnarok in your beautiful city!!!".

A Marvel spokesperson said the cast and crew were pleased with the respect the crowds had for the production, which continues to film down a Mary Street alleyway today.

Anyone who was on the ground yesterday should be pleasantly surprised by what they see when the film hits the big screen next year.

The spokesperson said there will be no need to digitally enhance the scenes shot yesterday as the intersection was made to look like a suitable double for New York City thanks to props and yellow cabs. 

The rest of this week's filming locations will be more secluded so fans will have to work harder to catch a glimpse of the cast coming and going from the set.

According to TV news reports actor Anthony Hopkins, who was spotted in Grafton last week, is also believe to be on set today for his role as Thor's all-powerful father Odin.
