Hulk Hogan, the former WWE superstar who took his stage name from a Marvel comic book character, said he wants an actor who has already played a Marvel character to play him in an upcoming biopic.

Hogan told Canada's Cape Breton Post on Aug. 12 that Chris Hemsworth, who played Thor in two movies and will reprise the role in "Thor: The Dark World," is best suited to play him.

"I said (Nick Hogan would) be perfect for it but I think we need a serious, serious actor that knows what he’s doing," Hogan told the Cape Breton Post. "You know who I thought would be good? That guy that did that action movie 'Thor.'"

Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, said that a biopic on his life is "under development.”

Hogan may have to wait for Hemsworth to be available. The popular Australian actor is currently filming "Cyber" with former Oscar-nominee Viola Davis.

After that, he will star in "In the Heart of the Sea" with Cillian Murphy and Brenda Gleason and "Snow White and the Huntsman 2" with Kristen Stewart.

That's not to mention Hemsworth’s role in “The Avengers” sequel "Age of Ultron" with Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Mark Ruffalo, each of whom are reprising their roles as Iron Man, Captain America, and The Hulk, respectively.
