After Not Appearing In 'Civil War,' Chris Hemsworth Thought He Was 'Fired'
Marvel's Captain America Civil War was released just last year. It was an ambitious project that pitted superheroes against superheroes due to their difference in opinions and values. For the most part, the intense battle between superheroes have been keeping audiences busy, however, there are some who noticed that two major Avengers characters were missing namely Thor and Hulk.
The Achievements Of Chris Hemsworth As Thor
According to Screenrant, Hemsworth wasn't that known until he was cast by Marvel as Thor. Although Hemsworth has already starred in a couple of Hollywood films at that time, there were doubts on what the actor can bring to his role as Thor. However, as things unraveled, the decision by Marvel turned out to be great as Hemsworth was able to bring success and publicity to the beloved character Thor.
Furthermore, when the film Thor debuted in April 2011, it earned a massive $449 million on a budget of only $150 million. And not only was it a financial success but critics and fans also gave the film a positive reception. As a result, Marvel wanted to continue on exploring Thor's franchise and has released another film titled Thor: The Dark World. Hemsworth then delivered another stellar performance which led to the movie becoming a success as it earns over $644 million on a budget of $170 million. Additionally, Hemsworth's portrayal of Thor has been a key factor as to why both films of The Avengers were quite a success.
Shock And Aww
With all those achievements, one would think that this would secure the actor in his role for future movies and projects in the Marvel Franchise, that is until he decides to pass on his Mjolnir. However, as Comic Book mentions in its article, Hemsworth thought that his non-appearance in the critically acclaimed movie Civil War means that he, along with Mark Ruffalo, were fired by Marvel.
In his interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Thor actor recalls asking Marvel if they were fired. Thankfully, the company was quick to reply that both Hemsworth and Ruffalo were on their own journey, and for that to happen, it was necessary for them not to appear in Civil War. Hemsworth goes on to say that it turned out fine as they were able to do a different kind of thing that they wouldn't have been able to do otherwise.
The journey that was undertaken by both Thor and Hulk will take place in the next installment of the franchise titled, Thor: Ragnarok. In the film, Hemsworth will be joined by Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins and Mark Ruffalo as they will be reprising their roles as Loki, Heimdal, Odin and Hulk respectively. While Cate Blanchett will be playing the villain Hela, with Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Karl Urban as Skurge.
Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi and is set to be released on Nov. 3, 2017.
