Chris Hemsworth thought he had been fired when his Marvel character didn’t appear in ‘Captain America: Civil War’.
The 33-year-old actor has starred as the Norse deity Thor in the Marvel Cinematic universe since 2011’s eponymously titled movie, but was concerned he’d been booted from the role when his character was notably missing from the script of the most recent ‘Captain America’ feature.
The 2016 movie featured most of the cast of Marvel’s ensemble venture ‘The Avengers’, including Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), but Thor did not make an appearance.
Speaking about his omission from the script, Chris told Entertainment Weekly magazine: “I was like, ‘What? Are we being fired?’ Marvel quickly reassured us, ‘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.”
I’m a @YGAP #polishedman Being a @PolishedMan isn’t just about remembering to buy flowers, how many rounds you shout, or how much you lift. It’s about saying no to violence against children. That’s why this October I’m painting my nail and asking you to donate to help the 1 in 5 kids globally who are subjected to physical or sexual violence before they turn 18. And I nominate @liamhemsworth @zacefron @robertdowneyjr @renner4real @markruffalo @twhiddleston nail it to end it. Become a polished man here www.polishedman.com @auschildhood , thanks to @laurapanton
