Thor: Ragnarok star Chris Hemsworth feels a little left out on the set of Avengers: Infinity War. As production on the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe installment ramps up, Hemsworth filmed a new short where he stumbles across “a little secret rehearsal” by directors Joe and Anthony Russo.
Of course, the rehearsal Hemsworth mentions is simply a dozen or so Avengers action figures set up on a table — though, he notes, there is no Thor figure present: “Interesting there’s no Thor toy in here.” In the video, he proceeds to make fun of Hawkeye, describing him as just rolling in from “a Berlin techo rave,” and knocks down a few of his Avengers teammates.
Naturally, Mjolnir also makes a cameo in the short. Hemsworth uses Thor’s mighty hammer to bat Iron Man and Captain America across the room, then topples Spider-Man “because he’s just a kid,” bops Vision on the head since “he’s not real” and pushes Star-Lord off the table because “guns aren’t cool.” He gives Winter Solider and Falcon a pass, but takes off with the Hulk figure “because we’re now mates.”
The tongue-in-cheek video seems to be a spiritual sequel to Ragnarok director Taika Waititi’s shorts, which showed “what Thor was up to” during the events of Captain America: Civil War. Thor was notably absent from Civil War, which was directed by the Russos — something that Hemsworth has obviously not forgotten, as he concludes the video above with, “Thanks for nothing, Russos!” Though Waititi’s videos show a humorous version of Thor’s downtime during the events of Civil War, his upcoming film Thor: Ragnarok will reveal what both the God of Thunder and the Hulk were really up to in the meantime.
