(INDIANAPOLIS) - Chris Hemsworth, who stars as the Mighty Thor in Avengers: Infinity War and his own series of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, will wave the green flag at this year’s Indianapolis 500.


Hemsworth is the brand ambassador for TAG Heuer, the official timepiece of the Indy 500 and the Verizon IndyCar Series.

He's starred in three Thor movies and appeared in three Avengers movies, including Avengers: Infinity War, which has broken several box office records since its release last month.

Hemsworth has some auto racing on his filmography: he appeared in the 2013 movie Rush, in which he portrayed Formula One driver James Hunt.

The 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500 is set for Sunday, May 27.
