Chris Hemsworth was captured filming an action sequence for Avengers: Age of Ultron on Friday in a forest in Guildford, England.

Chris Hemsworth Film 'Avengers' Sequel

Hemsworth, who plays Norse god of thunder Thor, wielded his character’s hammer Mjolnir – which literally translates to “The Crusher” or “The Grinder” – on the film set. In snaps taken of the shoot, it appeared as though the actor was smashing the hammer down upon a tank.

The 30-year-old action star was donned in black body armor, matching knee-high boots and Thor's signature red cape. Hemsworth's long blond wig was partially pulled back as he gave the futuristic military vehicle a beating, leaping into the air before issuing some major blows to the vehicle’s guns.

Hemsworth, who has starred in two Thor films, is among the many Marvel franchise actors returning for the ensemble flick. Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) and Chris Evans (Captain America), who both have multiple films under their belts as their superhero characters, will appear in the Avengers sequel – as will Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Rominoff/Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/ Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Bannder/ The Hulk), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury).

Newcomers to the franchise include Elisabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor Johnson, who will be playing Wanda/Scarlet Witch and Pietro/Quicksilver, respectively. James Spader will be playing Ultron, Paul Bettany is Jarvis/The Vision and Don Cheadle was cast as Colonel James Rhodes/War Machine.

Age Of Ultron is set to be released April 24, 2015.
