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” On Set Tour With Chris and Taika Waititi

Earlier this week director Taika Waititi sent another photo out from the set of Thor: Ragnarok on Twitter, teasing that there were just two days left of production. To celebrate production wrapping, the filmmaker gave fans a tour from the set through Facebook Live, which includes a few special guests, Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, and Tessa Thompson, although they are not in full costume.

The video is just over 13 minutes long, which starts with what looks like a peaceful lake environment, but as the director pans over, we see quite a bit of wreckage in this intergalactic junkyard set. We also see a number of actors wearing elaborate costumes, but who exactly they’re playing in Thor 3 is anyone’s guess, and it’s not clear how these characters and this set fit into the story. Take a look below:

Taika Waititi Calls “Thor: Ragnarok” ‘Out There’

During a Reddit AMA, director Taika Waititi has been discussing his upcoming Marvel Studios blockbuster Thor: Ragnarok, during which he suggested it will be the most “out there” Marvel movie to date, and that it will have a very “Taika-esque” tone.

“I think [Thor: Ragnarok] will be one of the most adventurous and most ‘out there’ of all the Marvel movies. It’s a crazy movie. You can expect a Taika-esque tone. They’ve been very accepting of my style.”

Plot details for Thor: Ragnarok are being kept under wraps, but we do know that it will incorporate elements of the Planet Hulk storyline, with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) set to take part in gladiatorial games hosted by The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum). Tom Hiddleston will also reprise the role of Loki, and Cate Blanchett is set to play the villainous Hela, although we don’t yet know how they will factor into the plot.

The movie is set for release on November 3rd, 2017. (Source)

Cate Blanchett Talks About “Thor: Ragnarok” and Working With Chris

In a recent interview, Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett had nothing but praise for her Thor: Ragnarok team, while sharing a bit of behind-the-scenes intel. Blanchett joined the Marvel movie universe, playing the villainous Hela in Thor 3 opposite Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder and Mark Ruffalo as the green goliath otherwise commonly referred to as The Hulk.

Well, [Mark’s] the greenest of the green! I didn’t get to work so much with Mark, unfortunately. But I did get to work with Chris [Hemsworth] and talk about delightful! He’s just absolutely fabulous. The whole thing was just a riot and fantastic fun. Did you see [director] Taika Waititi’s film, Hunt for the Wilderpeople? Or, What We Do in the Shadows? He’s just got such a sure hand. He’s wonderful, I’d eat him for breakfast if I could. He’s absolutely delicious. And he’s irreverent which is great because Marvel, at its best, has its tongue firmly in its cheek.”

Mark Ruffalo apparently didn’t spend a lot of time with any of the cast members, only occasionally shooting with his leading man Chris Hemsworth against green screen on an Australian soundstage. But the rest of the cast appeared on set together, and Cate Blanchett has nothing but good things to say about that experience. Especially working with Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth.

“He is a big guy! But, you know, you get on the Avengers/Marvel bandwagon – they’re making so many of these behemoths at once – he doesn’t have any time to sort of get chubby. I do love Chris in these movies – he has that really playful side of him that he gets to truck out.

The Warriors Three to Return For “Thor: Ragnarok”

Next year is going to be a very packed and very promising year for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only are we getting the highly anticipated sequel to James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy as well as the first solo Spider-Man movie in the MCU, Spider-Man: Homecoming, but we are also getting what could be the best Thor movie yet with Thor: Ragnarok. While “Thor: Ragnarok” has added a ton of new talent for the third installment of the franchise, it looks like some friendly faces will be returning as well.

Thanks to a couple of posts to Instagram, it seems all but confirmed that the Warriors Three will indeed be coming back for Thor: Ragnarok. The movie is currently filming in Australia, and a tattoo shop there called Punktured Tattoo recently got a visit from none other than Ray Stevenson, who plays Volstagg. The actor stopped in to get a tattoo “in between filming.”

The next clue came in the form of an Instagram post from one of the other Warriors Three actors, Tadanobu Asano, who plays Hogun. Asano was in both of the previous Thor movies, but his role in Thor: The Dark World was quite small. The actor posted a picture of himself on a beach, and simply captioned it with “Hello Australlia.” Unless he is just taking a very coincidental vacation, it pretty much seems like a sure thing that Hogun will be back. As for Zachary Levi, who plays Fandral, he hinted about his involvement in Thor: Ragnarok during San Diego Comic-Con, so that just about seals the deal as far as seeing Thor’s most trusted warrior companions in the movie.
