Although Captain America: Civil War was billed as a Captain America movie, it was more or less an Avengers movie. Many jokingly called it Avengers 2.5. Some members of the team did have to sit the big brawl out, though. Namely Thor and Hulk. It turns out that because he wasn’t included, Chris Hemsworth thought he’d actually been fired from his role as Thor.
The actor recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about his upcoming movie Thor: Ragnarok, his third solo movie as the God of Thunder. In his mind, that movie wasn’t even going to happen. At least not with him, since he didn’t get to duke it out with some of the other Marvel superheroes in Captain America: Civil War. Luckily he wasn’t right, but it is kind of funny to think that someone so beloved by Marvel fans even had to have that thought. Here is what he had to say about it.
“I was like, ‘What? Are we being fired?’ Marvel quickly reassured [Mark and Chris], ‘No you guys have got your own journey going on, and in order for that to work you can’t be a part of this one.’ Look, it turned out just perfect because we got to do a whole different kind of thing we wouldn’t have able to do otherwise”.
Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi and is set for release on November 3rd. (Source)

Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky are working together for the first time in the upcoming war film, Horse Soldiers, and Entertainment Tonight got Chris to open up about the experience.
“It is great,” Hemsworth told ET’s Cameron Mathison on the New Mexico set. “Very little prep time needed to form that chemistry. It was fantastic.”
“They said, ‘Look, we are big fans of your wife, and we would love it if she came and played your wife in this,’ and I said, ‘Great!'”
Horse Soldiers, based on Doug Stanton’s non-fiction book of the same name, follows a group of U.S. Special Forces sent to Afghanistan to fight against the Taliban after the attacks of September 11, 2001.
The film’s title stems from the fact that horses were the troops’ main mode of transportation, but fortunately for Hemsworth, he was able to draw on previous experience.
“We did a little horse shooting in the first Thor,” he pointed out. “I also had the best horse, Carly. I would tell them it was my horsemanship and my skill, but it was not that.”
And while New Mexico is safer than Afghanistan, Mathison got a small taste of the real thing while witnessing an action sequence is the desert.
“An incredible firefight is going on right behind me,” Mathison shouted over the sound of simulated gunfire. “I got to keep my head down. It’s getting loud out here.”
Hemsworth revealed that the cast went through a three-week training program before they began filming in order to form a bond between them and get a real sense of what it’s like to rely on each other in the battlefield.
“It was a lot of weapons training, a lot of movement training,” Hemsworth said. “It was great, because you can’t really fake this stuff.”
