In the wake of Thor: Ragnarok's box office success, star Chris Hemsworth shared a heartwarming photo of his daughter India Rose on set. With Thor: Ragnarok at the top of the US box office, the film features several firsts, representing a turning point for the MCU.
From its characters to the vision of director Taika Waititi, the third film in the Thor franchise has ironically been the source of several firsts. Making an inspiring impact was clearly on the mind of everyone involved, but no one more so than Hemsworth, who is clearly thinking of inspiring the next generation of superheroes.
Hemsworth posted the photo to Twitter, with the caption, "Passing of the torch." It features Hemsworth in his Thor costume with India wearing a superhero cape much like her father's. Both are sporting a similar hairstyle and Hemsworth is looking back to the camera, clearly appreciating the moment. Take a look:

Stories about superheroes inspiring people are everywhere and stories like Wonder Woman are currently still collecting accolades for inspiring women and young girls around the world. This photo proves that inspiring people is clearly just as much on the mind of the stars of the MCU, who are looking forward to passing the torch onto their own children as well as newer superheroes in their own pantheon.
The "Passing of the Torch" is clearly on the MCU's mind as well as the mind of the MCU at large. Thor: Ragnarok is the 17th film in the franchise and its end-credit scenes hint directly at future endings and beginnings for the MCU at large. What Avengers: Infinity War will bring to its characters remains to be seen, but everyone involved in the films so far is clearly making the most of their time in the House of Ideas. Fundamentally, this photo indicates just how important legacy is to the MCU at large.
Thor: Ragnarok stars Hemsworth as Thor Odinson, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Tessa Thompson as the Valkyrie and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. They're joined by Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Taika Waititi as Korg, and Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange. The film is directed by Taika Waititi from a script by Christopher Yost, Craig Kyle, and Stephany Folsom, and tells the story of Ragnarok, the pivotal ending of Thor's home of Asgard. While Ragnarok means an ending, the MCU on every front is making clear that nothing really ends, it's just a passing of the torch, a nice message for everyone involved.
