Chris Hemsworth Goes Full Geek In First 'Ghostbusters' Character Photo

Chris Hemsworth has gone full geek for "Ghostbusters."

On Wednesday, fans got their first look at the Aussie star in character for the anticipated reboot, in which he traded his Thor hammer for a pair of horn-rimmed glasses.

The 32-year-old is set to play Kevin, receptionist to the all-female Ghostbusters team, which features established big-screen stars Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig, and current "Saturday Night Live" players Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in their first headlining film roles. 

New images of all four heroines were also posted to the "Ghostbusters" website alongside Chris' photo, showcasing the gals in civilian garb. Previous peeks have teased their ghost-busting gear, including retro-looking uniforms, proton packs and a decked-out station wagon.

According to director Paul Feig, a live-action look at the whole gang could be next. 

The screenwriter and filmmaker announced via Twitter on Tuesday that the movie's first full trailer will drop by the end of February. 

"Ghostbusters" will blast into theaters on July 15.
