Chris Hemsworth has finally spoken about the absence of his superhero character, Thor, in the upcoming Marvel movie “Captain America: Civil War.”
Almost all members of the “Avengers” will appear in the movie except for Thor and the Hulk, but it seems Thor doesn’t care if he’s on it or not.
In a new video posted by directors Joe and Anthony Russo on Walt Disney Studios’ Facebook page, Hemsworth is finally addressing his absence in the movie.
“You know it’s funny. Everybody keep asking me: Are you Team Cap? Are you Team Iron Man? Who cares? I mean, where was the invite for me and Hulk? Just leave the two strongest, biggest Avengers out of this one, did you? Was this one for the kids, is it? Where they just have a scrape on their own, and we just sit on the sidelines? So pathetic,” the actor said.

Hemsworth jokingly added: “Maybe I’m not worthy. Maybe I can’t even pick up the hammer anymore. Let’s see,” he said. And then Thor’s hammer was tossed from offscreen into his outstretched hand. Hemsworth smiled and said: “Still got it. Still very, very light.”
So why is that Thor and Hulk are not in Civil War? Like what Hemsworth said – it is because they’re too strong. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, co-writer Christopher Markus agreed. “You put those guys in a fight, it’s over quickly,” Markus said.
Despite his character’s no appearance in Civil War, the Australian actor made it clear that his feelings aren’t hurt and he does not hate Team Cap or Team Iron Man. He even left a piece of advice to the rest of superheroes in “Captain America: Civil War. “Let us know when you’re done messing around, and the big boys will step in,” Hemsworth said while dropping an arm to show off his single-handed pull-ups.
Chris Hemsworth is set to star in “Thor: Ragnarok” and he will be joined by Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk. The movie will be released in November 2017.
