Chris Hemsworth Has One Problem Filming The Upcoming Avengers Movies

Marvel fans might love the idea of having all their favorite superheroes coming together and bouncing lines off one another, but for Chris Hemsworth, the experience isn’t as noteworthy.

Not only does the Marvel star admit that he doesn’t really understand the Infinity Stones, but the Australian actor also says that working on the upcoming Avengers movies can be a bit hard because of its impersonal nature.

Speaking in an interview with Slash Film, the Asgardian God of Thunder responds to a question regarding the different dynamics of different character pairings, including the one between Thor and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo).

“That’s right, yeah. And he punches me in the face in the first one. The Avengers stuff is hard because it’s not very personal. There’s seven of you in a room and you have to get across all this information that feels expositional.  So it’s hard to really have a dynamic. Obviously Tony and Cap have a lot of one-on-one screen time.

I’d always felt like I don’t have that as much, and that’s when you get to really have fun. As I said, we just went for it in this, and there’s a nice kind of love-hate relationship there. A lovely kind of pairing. Very early on I was saying, “Let’s do something like Butch and Sundance and pair ‘em up and go on a road trip. There’s elements of that in there, too.”

While an impersonal experience doesn't sound that appearling, it definitely makes sense that the attention’s going to be divided in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 – the two-part Marvel mash-up movie has more than 60 superheroes fighting against Thanos (Josh Brolin). We’re still pretty excited to see Thor exchanging lines with Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and the other Guardians of the Galaxy though.
