Thor star Chris Hemsworth is teaming with National Geographic and Disney+ for a new science series titled, “Limitless with Chris Hemsworth”. Hemsworth aims to transform his body by training for six extraordinary challenges in the new series, showing how to fight ageing at every stage of life.
Hemsworth will host the science series from Jane Root’s Nutopia and Darren Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures. Courteney Monroe, President of National Geographic Global Television Networks said: “We are so fortunate to have Chris Hemsworth at the centre of this series and to tap into his genuine curiosity and real-life superhero powers to push his own personal limits”. With Limitless, Disney has doubled down on Hemsworth’s workout preparation for his role in Thor: Love and Thunder, which will see the titular hero return to his signature physical strength.
“Each episode will tackle a different way we can live better for longer: regenerating damage, maximizing strength, building resilience, shocking the body, supercharging memory and confronting mortality. Hemsworth will meet leading longevity scientists who believe that the key to staying young lies in rooting out and reversing the ravages of time before they take hold, and learn secrets from superhumans who demonstrate the mind-blowing extent of human potential. In “Limitless,” Hemsworth will come face-to-face with his own mortality, testing ways to extend his healthy life in challenges that will stretch his physical and mental abilities” – Nutopia said in their project details.
Chris Hemsworth’s passion for exercise and fitness likely makes Limitless a passion project for him as well. Similarly, his commitment to the MCU and his work in Thor: Love and Thunder will make this latest glimpse into his life a treat for all fans.
