THOR: RAGNAROK Star Chris Hemsworth Thought He'd Been Fired After CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Exclusion

Chris Hemsworth has revealed how he & Mark Ruffalo felt upon learning that they were being left out of Captain America: Civil War & why he initially assumed he was being dropped from the MCU.

Captain America: Civil War featured pretty much every member of The Avengers (and even a few new ones), but conspicuous by their absence were Thor and The Hulk. At the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the God of Thunder went off to search the cosmos for whoever is attempting to gather the Infinity Stones, while The Hulk was headed for parts unknown after bidding farewell to Black Widow. 

The duo will be reunited on Sakaar in The Grandmaster's arena when Thor: Ragnarok is released in November, but in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly (via Screen Rant), Chris Hemsworth made a startling admission about learning he was being left out of Captain America: 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's been said that Thor and The Hulk were left out of the movie due to being too powerful, but this explanation makes sense too as Age of Ultron perfectly set the stage for Thor: Ragnarok
