Of all the Avengers to undergo changes over the course of Avengers: Endgame, perhaps none were as outwardly drastic as Thor's change in physique.
Consumed by guilt after failing to kill Thanos at the end of Avengers: Infinity War and prevent him from wiping out half of all life in the universe with the Infinity Gauntlet, Thor spends the subsequent five years letting himself go physically, gaining considerable weight. Endgame co-star Mark Ruffalo has shared a behind-the-scenes photo of actor Chris Hemsworth napping between filming scenes after the character's transformation.
Based on the photo, the scenes being filmed appear to be for the surviving Avengers mourning the death of Black Widow, who had sacrificed herself on Vormir so that Hawkeye could obtain the Soul Stone.
With an unkempt wig, scruffy beard and fat suit, Hemsworth is relaxing between shooting scenes for the emotional sequence, his script pages still visibly in his hands.
