We recently had a chance to see the leading ladies of ‘Ghostbusters‘ and now we have a first look of Chris Hemsworth (‘Thor: The Dark World’,’Snow White and the Huntsman’) in costume as well. With Hemsworth being cast as the assistant to continue the gender swapped role reversals from the original films, it seems they are at least partially paying tribute to Annie Potts’s Janine with his look here. I could almost see him channeling a little of Rick Moranis’s Louis as well.
With his on screen presence as ‘Thor’ it seems unlikely that his role will be as small as hers was in the original film though only time will tell on that one.
Thanks to Twitter here is the first shot of Hemsworth as Kevin in the upcoming ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot!

At the very least it seems he’ll be riding around with some gear though his transportation shown here might just be a glorified way to pick up coffee for the his employers or an unauthorized joyride that he is about to get yelled at for.
It is still unclear until we get a trailer but I suspect that the darker humor from the original films is going to be replaced with more lighthearted gags. How that will actually play to fans when the film is released has yet to be seen as I think we all need a trailer before we can really sound off for or against this one.
Are you excited to see Hemsworth in a ‘Ghostbusters’ uniform? Do you think his role as secretary will be just answering the phone or will he help take down at least one ghost in the film? Share your thoughts below!
The ‘Ghostbusters’ will be firing up their proton packs on the big screen on July 22nd, 2016
