Chris Hemsworth is not happy with the Russo brothers’ toy lineup in a new set video from Avengers: Infinity War. The film – which will be directed by the Russos once again following their work on the last two Captain America films – is shaping up to be the most ambitious outing yet from Marvel Studios. Essentially acting as a culmination of every film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe released prior to it, Infinity War brings together all of the notable, main characters from the MCU together (some for the first time) for one giant fight against The Mad Titan, Thanos (Josh Brolin).
With a larger cast than any of the previous Marvel films – which is saying something considering the scale of the previous Avengers movies and Captain America: Civil War – production on Infinity War is set to take an understandably longer time than usual. So as a result, the Russos and many of the film’s main cast members have managed to find some interesting ways to spend their time in between filming new scenes for the film.
The latest fun escapade from the Infinity War set comes courtesy of none other than the God of Thunder himself, Chris Hemsworth. Posted on the actor’s official Facebook account today, fans can watch as Hemsworth stumbles upon a toy “rehearsal” that The Russo Brothers have set up for one of the film’s action scenes. And while he has a lot of fun messing around with the toys at first, once Hemsworth notices that there is no Thor toy featured in the lineup, he decides to let out some emotions that are, apparently, still brewing about being left out of the conflict in Civil War. Check out the video for yourself in the space above.
This isn’t the first time that Hemsworth has been publicly tongue-in-cheek about his exclusion from Civil War. There were even several short “documentaries” released by Marvel Studios explaining what exactly the God of Thunder was doing while Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) had their fateful confrontation last year. How exactly that may impact the reunion between the three characters in Infinity War will have to remain a mystery for the time being.
But before Thor returns in Avengers: Infinity War, fans can expect to see Hemsworth reprise his iconic role again later this year in Marvel’s highly-anticipated Thor: Ragnarok. Directed by comedy veteran, Taika Waitit, the film is a noteworthy departure from the tone and style of the previous two Thor movies, removing the titular character from his home setting of Asgard, and sending him on a sprawling space adventure. There’s also said to be a buddy comedy dynamic between Thor and Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk in the film as well, which only continues to build it up as one of Marvel’s most unexpectedly different outings to date, especially since it and Black Panther are the final two films before the Infinity War conflict finally begins.
