Chris Hemsworth Reveals What He Thought When He Wasn't Asked to Be in 'Captain America: Civil War'

Captain America: Civil War was one of Marvel’s most popular movies to date, and fans of the franchise know that Thor (Chris Hemsworth) was one of the few superheroes who actually did not appear in the film.

The film saw Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) at odds and picking sides in a huge battle within the Avengers.

Now, Chris is speaking out about what he thought was happening when he realized he was one of the only superheros not asked to appear in the film.

In the new book, “The Story of Marvel Studios: The Making of the Marvel Cinematic Universe,” Chris said, “I remember being on the Age of Ultron press tour, and everyone was talking about Civil War. I was like, ‘What’s Civil War?’ I asked, ‘Are you doing a side-project or something?’ They’re like, ‘Oh no, Captain America, y’know? The next one is Civil War.’ I’m like, ‘Wait… Iron Man’s in that?’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, but there’s not just Iron Man. There’s Vision (Paul Bettany). There’s Spider-Man (Tom Holland) … [Marvel] said, ‘You’re doing your own thing.’ … I thought, ‘This is it. I’m being written out.’”

Of course, Chris was not written out of the MCU and has appeared in multiple movies since, with another being released next year!
