QUEENSLANDERS in the state's capital might be feeling a New York state of mind this morning, as props for Marvel superhero flick Thor: Ragnarok takes over Brisbane city streets.

Australian Chris Hemsworth was on scene this morning as he prepared to become the title character, as was his co-star and Taylor Swift partner Tom Hiddleston who plays Thor's brother: the supervillain Loki.

Along Margaret St in the CBD were a line of New York's famous yellow taxis, a yellow school bus and an American-style ambulance.

Our white Ford Falcons apparently not quite fitting with the NYC motif.

The rolling cameras are now closing parts of Albert, Mary and Margaret streets, with the Riverside Expressway also affected until 11pm.

The first confirmation that Brisbane would be given the Hollywood treatment came on Thursday after Queensland Police warned motorists of delays to come.

Surnise reporter Michelle Tapper was able to give a shout-out to Tom and Chris as they appeared on set to meet with the director.

Heading in to Brisbane? Here's what police want you to know:

Mary Street will have two lanes from Albert St to Edward STclosed from 4am August 15 until 4am August 20. 
Three lanes from Albert Street to Edward Street will be closed from 4am August 20 until 4am August 26. 

Albert Street is expected to be closed between Mary Street and Alice Street between 4pm August 21 until 7pm August 22.
That section of the road will then re-open as a separate section, between Charlotte Street and Mary Street is closed from 7pm August 22 until 11.59pm on August 25.


Margaret Street will be closed between George St and Edward St from 4pm August 21 until 3am August 22 and then the section between the Riverside Expressway and Edward Street (with both off ramps from the Riverside Expressway also closed) from 3am August 22 until 9pm that night. 

Esk Lane will also be closed between Mary Street and the end of the road from 5am August 14 until 8pm August 31.

"There is potential for city traffic disruption if drivers do not plan ahead and consider alternate routes if these streets are part of their usual commute," according to police.
