It looks like Marvel weren't the only ones who were surprised that Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) didn't turn up in last year's Captain America: Civil War superhero showdown.
Despite proving his worth as Marvel's Asgardian God of Thunder in two Thor solos and two Avengers films, Hemsworth assumed that his exclusion from the 2016 Captain America installment meant that the studio was had fired him from his job.
Speaking in an interview with Entertainment Weekly (via ScreenRant), Hemsworth revealed how anxious he was when he was told that Thor wouldn't be in Civil War.
"I was like, ‘What? Are we being fired?' Marvel quickly reassured us, ‘No you guys have got your own journey going on, and in order for that to work you can't be a part of this one.' Look, it turned out just perfect because we got to do a whole different kind of thing we wouldn't have able to do otherwise."
It may come as a shock to many that Hemsworth would be worried about his job considering that he's done a lot for Marvel. After all, Thor and Thor: The Dark World both raked in an impressive amount at the box office, and Hemsworth has become a staple in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Hemsworth will be returning to the big screen in Thor: Ragnarok which is scheduled for release on Nov. 3, 2017.
