Listen up, comic-lovers! We've got an Avengers update for ya.

We all know that Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and many more stars are set to team up for the much-anticipated Marvel action hero flick.

And although the film is set for a 2012 release, one of the film's stars says he hasn't even seen a script yet...

"I met with Joss Whedon, the director, a few times and discussed a rough outline of it," Chris Hemsworth, a.k.a. Thor in the flick, recently told us. "I haven't seen a hard copy yet so I'm looking forward to it... Just working with that cast and Joss. Every step of this has been exciting. I'm looking forward to the rest of it."

The 27-year-old Aussie actor also says he's trying to keep up the ridiculously buff bod he got while bulking up to play the Norse God of Thunder in the upcoming Thor film, out in May.

"I'm trying to sort of maintain the strength I built up," he says. "The actual weight, and size wise, has a lot to do with the food intake. So I've lessened that just because half the battle was to eat that much chicken."

How much chicken?

"My body weight in protein pretty much!" Hemsworth laughed. "A number of chicken
breasts a day and fish and steak and eggs... There's worse things to complain about [but] it was certainly an effort."
