Chris Hemsworth to Meet Up With the First-Ever Wizard World Cruise This December
Millions have been thrilled by his portrayal of the "God of Thunder" in the Thor and Avengers franchise blockbusters. Now, fans can meet Chris Hemsworth in person as Wizard World, Inc. (OTCBB:WIZD) and Rose Tours today announced the Dec. 3rd addition of the superstar to the celebrity roster aboard the first ever Wizard World Cruise. The cruise itself will be a pop-culture, comic con themed, three-night adventure on the Norwegian Sky, December 2-5, sailing from Miami, Florida to Nassau, Bahamas.
Hemsworth, already an extremely popular guest at several Wizard World comic cons, will be joined on the cruise by Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) and others, as well as an Artist Alley with noted comics creators, cosplay contests, exhibitors, parties, video game tournaments and more. Additional celebrities and creators to appear aboard Wizard World Cruise will be announced in the coming weeks.

He will also be seen this Summer as part of an all-star cast in the new reboot of Ghostbusters.
