Chris Hemsworth is back in action in the latest Netflix release, EXTRACTION, and the streamer has released the first images of the THOR actor that prove not holding a magical hammer doesn't tone down his superhero looks.
Judiging from the pictures, the role appears to be a bit grittier than what we've seen from Hemsworth who has appeared in three THOR films & four AVENGERS films for Marvel. In the film, Hemsworth plays Tyler Rake, a black-market mercenary hired to rescue the kidnapped son (Rudhraksh Jaiswal) of an international crime lord. Rake is also dealing with issues from his past that shape his current mission.
