Coming off of the highest-­grossing film in history — 2019’s “Avengers: End­game” — Hemsworth starred in 2020 Netflix actioner “Extraction,” which the streaming giant says is its most viewed film ever, hitting 99 million in just one month of its April release. Naturally, the streamer is already developing a sequel, and has announced a Todd Phillips-directed Hulk Hogan biopic set to star Hemsworth as the titular wrestler. Hemsworth has also been cast in the “Mad Max: Fury Road” prequel “Furiosa,” and the world stands poised for that other sequel, “Thor: Love and Thunder,” which was delayed by the coronavirus to 2022. Hemsworth also ventured into the business world, launching fitness app Centr in March 2020 just as the pandemic stay-at-home orders were kicking in, giving a much needed wellness boost to suddenly inactive consumers.
