Proving that you can really have too much of a good thing, Thor Odinson actor Chris Hemsworth has told Variety that Marvel Studios won’t allow him to do press tours with Chris Evans because they have too much fun together.
While promoting Avengers: Endgame and its gargantuan story, Hemsworth touched base on Marvel’s PR strategy, explaining how the studio selects who speaks to whom, and in what order. And considering he’s been heavily involved in the MCU since its inception more than a decade ago, it should come as no surprise to hear that Hemsworth has developed a life-long bond with all Phase One Avengers: Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, and Mark Ruffalo.
But it’s really Evans who stands head and shoulders above the rest. For Hemsworth, he’s not just a co-star or a friend, but a brother.
There’s a mentor element with Downey. There’s an incredible friendship with Scarlett and [Jeremy] Renner and [Mark] Ruffalo. With Chris Evans, I have a real brotherly bond.
Asked straight-up whether he’s allowed to tour with Chris Evans, Hemsworth held his hands up and admitted that Marvel Studios soon separated the pair when the Powers That Be realized that they were having too much fun together to get any work done – like two giggling school children separated by the teacher.
I think they wouldn’t pair us up on this press tour, because we just spend the whole time screwing around and none of it is on. We had too much fun together, and truly like kids in school, we were separated because we weren’t getting shit done.
At $2.68 billion and counting, Avengers: Endgame is on the verge of topping Avatar at the global box office – a feat thought impossible by many industry experts. And while Spider-Man: Far From Home will soon provide a fitting epilogue to MCU Phase Three, Endgame will be the last Avengers movie for some time yet…
