Thor Will Return for Infinity War, Confirms Chris Hemsworth

Posted 2017/11/05 0 0

Avengers: Infinity War will assemble just about everyone in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.


By the time Thor: Ragnarok ends, not only has Thor (Chris Hemsworth) gotten a haircut and had his hammer destroyed by Hela (Cate Blanchett) but his homeland of Asgard is completely demolished. But the most shocking twist is that the God of Thunder also loses an eye during his climactic battle with Hela.

In an interview with EW, Hemsworth says that Thor will retain in Avengers: Infinity War the eye patch that he acquired after losing his right eye, noting, “Yeah we carry it into the film with the eye patch you see in this film.”

Taika Waititi, the director of the film and voice behind the hilarious Korg, spoke to developing the plans of taking one of Thor’s eyes away from the God of Thunder.

“That kind of just evolved just throughout the script process, to just keep stripping that character down,” Waititi reflected. “Having him lose the hammer and all those things and to kind of create a broken version of the character. At the end, he sort of becomes a refugee.”

Summary: Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.

Thor: Ragnarok, directed by Taika Waititi, stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Idris Elba, and Mark Ruffalo.
