Chris Thought Marvel Had Fired Him

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)
