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)

Chris Gushes About Working With Wife, Elsa Pataky

Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky are working together for the first time in the upcoming war film, Horse Soldiers, and Entertainment Tonight got Chris to open up about the experience.

“It is great,” Hemsworth told ET’s Cameron Mathison on the New Mexico set. “Very little prep time needed to form that chemistry. It was fantastic.”

“They said, ‘Look, we are big fans of your wife, and we would love it if she came and played your wife in this,’ and I said, ‘Great!'”

Horse Soldiers, based on Doug Stanton’s non-fiction book of the same name, follows a group of U.S. Special Forces sent to Afghanistan to fight against the Taliban after the attacks of September 11, 2001.

The film’s title stems from the fact that horses were the troops’ main mode of transportation, but fortunately for Hemsworth, he was able to draw on previous experience.

“We did a little horse shooting in the first Thor,” he pointed out. “I also had the best horse, Carly. I would tell them it was my horsemanship and my skill, but it was not that.”

And while New Mexico is safer than Afghanistan, Mathison got a small taste of the real thing while witnessing an action sequence is the desert.

“An incredible firefight is going on right behind me,” Mathison shouted over the sound of simulated gunfire. “I got to keep my head down. It’s getting loud out here.”

Hemsworth revealed that the cast went through a three-week training program before they began filming in order to form a bond between them and get a real sense of what it’s like to rely on each other in the battlefield.

“It was a lot of weapons training, a lot of movement training,” Hemsworth said. “It was great, because you can’t really fake this stuff.”

Rumoured “Avengers: Infinity War” Main Cast

With Avengers: Infinity War set to go into production early in the New Year, a casting call has arrived online which claims to offer up details of the main cast for the Marvel superhero epic.

Now, it should be noted that this is not official from Marvel, and casting calls are often inaccurate; this could just be a case of the agency taking a guess based on who they expect to appear in the film – so any Spider-Man or Falcon fans out there, don’t start panicking just yet!

Chris Hemsworth as Thor
Josh Brolin as Thanos
Chris Pratt as Star-Lord
Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier
Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow
Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange
Brie Larson as Captain Marvel
Zoe Saldana as Gamora
Karen Gillan as Nebula
Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton
Chris Evans as Steve Rogers
Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch
Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon
Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury
Vin Diesel as Groot
Paul Rudd as Ant-Man
Benedict Wong as Wong
Dave Bautista as Drax
Paul Bettany as Vision
Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther
Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk
Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark

Adding further weight to this being speculation is the absence of Cobie Smulders, who has already revealed that she’ll be reprising the role of Maria Hill.

Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled for release on May 4th, 2018, and will be shot-back-to-back with the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4, which is slated to arrive on May 3rd, 2019. (Source)

“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.
