Thor actor Chris Hemsworth recently paid Jimmy Kimmel Live! a visit to promote his new Disney+ series Limitless with Chris Hemsworth. According to the Australian actor, who was hailed "Sexiest Man Alive" in 2014, their OG 6 group chat was filled with snarky comments from Robert Downey Jr. and Jeremy Renner who mocked Chris when they learned about his win.

Hemsworth hilariously shares: "We have an Avengers text chain and it very quickly went, 'What are you doing with your hands back there?' Downey said he was being arrested, I said beautiful mugshot, and then Jeremy Renner said a series of things which we won’t repeat."

Well, it's great to know that the Avengers group chat is still active years after the Original Six last appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe together. It just goes to show how their bond has remained extremely tight even when they no longer share projects as a collective.

Meanwhile, Evans is heavily rumored to be making his return to the billion-dollar franchise in the upcoming Captain America film starring Anthony Mackie. While the actor and Marvel Studios have denied inking a renewed deal, it seems like Steve Rogers' return just became a possibility with all the multiversal shenanigans going on in the MCU.
