Why Wasn’t Thor in ‘Captain America: Civil War’?

Chris Hemsworth as Thor

The answer to the question of why Thor wasn’t involved in Captain America: Civil War is revealed in a new video which San Diego Comic Con attendees were treated to in July and is now finally available online. Chris Hemsworth shows off his comedy chops as Thor explains what he was doing while Tony Stark and Steve Rogers were busy dividing up the superheroes for a ‘civil war.’ Hemsworth’s joined briefly by Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner who was asked to be part of Tony Stark’s team but declined, while apparently no one ever approached Thor to take sides. So instead of battling his superhero buddies, Thor was kicking it down in Australia, wearing shorts, and hanging with everyday people.

No worries though because Thor will be back in Thor: Ragnarok opening in theaters on November 3, 2017. The cast also includes Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Mark Ruffalo, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, and Karl Urban. What We Do in the Shadows‘ Taika Waititi directs, Kevin Feige produces, and Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee are on board as executive producers.
