The Infinity Stones have become very important to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the build up to Avengers: Infinity War, but fans aren’t alone in their confusion about the all-important cosmic remnants. Thor: Ragnarok star Chris Hemsworth doesn’t get it, either.
During a set visit the actor said that while Thor: Ragnarok connects to Avengers: Infinity War, they didn’t want to get too stuck dealing with the Infinity Stones.
“We didn’t wanna get bogged down in Infinity Stones and da-da-da-da, because I don’t even understand that stuff a lot of the time,” Hemsworth said.
“Without giving anything away [Thor: Ragnarok] definitely bleeds nicely into [Avengers: Infinity War,] as they all tend to do,” Hemsworth explained. “This being called Ragnarok, which everyone knows what that means, it obviously is gonna effect the larger universe.”
Hemsworth not having a full understanding of the Infinity Stones is humorous largely because of how involved with trying to understand them Thor is. At the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor left Earth to find out more about the mysterious objects of Thanos’ desire. However, even with Hemsworth being confused about the Stones, the events of Thor: Ragnarok will be very important to the next Avengers installment even though the actor stops short of revealing if we’ll see the Soul Stone anytime soon.
