Chris Hemsworth thought Marvel had fired him

IANS  |  Los Angeles 

Actor Chris Hemsworth thought he had been fired when his Marvel character Thor didn't appear in "Captain America: Civil War".

The 2016 movie featured most of the cast of Marvel's ensemble cast "The Avengers", including Captain America played by Chris Evans, Iron Man essayed by Robert Downey Jr, Black Widow by Scarlett Johansson and Hawkeye played by Jeremy Renner, but Thor did not make an appearance.

Speaking about his omission from the script, Chris told Entertainment Weekly magazine: "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."

Thor's absence from "Captain America: Civil War" comes as the superhero is set to be involved in his own adventure when his third solo venture "Thor: Ragnarok" hits screens in November this year, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The movie will see the return of Hemsworth as the crown prince of Asgard, joined by his adoptive brother and nemesis Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston.

Hemsworth is also set to star in the third instalment of the ensemble movie series, when "Avengers: Infinity War" lands in theatres 2018.
