Chris Hemsworth’s dream of becoming Superman
In a stunning Instagram post, Hemsworth shared a photo with his son, proudly wearing the iconic Superman cape. The post captures a precious moment when Hemsworth held his son’s hand and posed the age-old question of what he wants to be in the future. Hemsworth’s son gave a simple answer, saying he wants to be Superman. Hemsworth, with a touch of humor, expressed his gratitude for having two other children, leaving room for the hope that one of them might choose Thor as their favorite superhero.
Hemsworth revealed on his Instagram, “‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ On this his son says confidently, ‘Dad, I want to become Superman.’ “Dad, I want to be Superman” I’m lucky to have two other children.

The Australian actor, best known for playing Thor, continued the superhero saga with another update. Sharing a video showing his son in a Superman costume, Hemsworth jokingly captioned it, “Introducing the next heavyweight champion of the universe.” The light-hearted video shows an adorable interaction between Hemsworth and his son while boxing with each other.
Hemsworth’s post drew sharp reactions from his fellow superhero actors. Deadpool’s Josh Brolin, Ryan Reynolds, Wonder Woman’s Gal Gadot, and Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman, also joined in on the fun. Momoa shared a similar experience with his son Wolf. He commented, “YES WOLF WANTED TO BE BATMAN ❤️❤️❤️❤️.” The camaraderie between these on-screen superheroes extends beyond the cinematic universe, as their similar off-screen experiences with children bind them together.
In the realm of superheroes, it seems that the next generation has already chosen their favorite superheroes. Same is the situation in Hemsworth’s family where his son has chosen Superman as his idol, ignoring the fact that his own father is The Prince of Asgard.
