How does Chris Hemsworth feel about Avengers: Infinity War?
Well, for one, the Ragnarok star believes Joe and Anthony Russo’s threequel brings about the end of an era, while those wary of spoilers needn’t fear Infinity War‘s mind-melting teaser – it “doesn’t give much away,” according to Hemsworth.
Indeed, Chris Hemsworth is one of many MCU veterans who have had their respective futures thrust into doubt due to expiring contracts. Chances are the towering Aussie will extend his Marvel tenure beyond Avengers 4 – there is that mooted fourth Thor movie to consider, after all – but even if Hemsworth decides to hang up his hammer (or should that be battle ax?), the Russo Brothers’ upcoming double act will send his Thor off with a bang.
In fact, the actor believes the two Avengers sequels have the potential to become “one of the biggest things in film history.” Currently out promoting his Afghan war drama 12 Strong, here’s what the actor shared in a recent interview with Toronto Sun:
They’re going to be massive. I finished literally two days ago and I looked at (directors) Joe and Anthony (Russo) and said, ‘I don’t know how you guys have gotten this far and I don’t know how you’re going to hold it together and complete this thing, but my hat’s off to you.’
Hemsworth wasn’t the only one to wrap filming; late last week, Joe and Anthony Russo confirmed the end of principal photography with a giant, Thanos-themed cake. Both directors now face a lengthy post-production process before Avengers 4 is due in 2019, and with upwards of 76 cast members to accommodate, we don’t envy their monumental task.
This is one of the biggest things in film history and to be a part of it was just incredible. I think what these characters are about to face — with Thanos — there’s been nothing quite like it. There are 76 cast members or something like that. I think what people are going to be excited about is what I was excited about and that’s Thor meeting the Guardians and Iron Man meeting Doctor Strange.
Hemsworth wrapped things up by teasing all of the crowd-pleasing chemistry in store:
The interactions between all of these characters and the different sorts of chemistry and the relationships that are formed is something that people are going to be pretty blown away by.
Talk about bringing the hype. We’ll find out what all the fuss is about when Avengers: Infinity War crashes into theaters on May 4th. And with Avengers 4 right around the corner, it’s fair to say that the MCU is about to undergo a radical shake-up – after Black Panther, of course, which is targeting a record-breaking opening weekend of its own.
