Thor shuts down Brisbane streets

The corner of Margaret and Albert streets in Brisbane have been closed to double as the streets of New York City in the upcoming Thor movie.

Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth and Taylor Swifts boyfriend Tom Hiddleston casually roamed the area on Monday morning, mingling with extras and fans.

TODAY reporter Aislin Kriukelis even asked Thor for a wave, which he happily obliged!

Filming will continue over the next week, meaning there may be many more superhero sightings in Brisbane.
