“Thor” headliner and Thanos finger-snap survivor Chris Hemsworth warns Marvel fans in a new interview that if they were shocked by “Infinity War”, “I think the second one is even more shocking, for other reasons entirely.”
Speaking to Esquire, Hemsworth added, “That’s what kind of blew me away the first time I read both scripts, is how they managed to orchestrate so many different characters but give them each their own separate shot and moments, and have it be elevated and feel fresh and unique–not just like a messy, thrown-together assembly of these guys.”
Of course, Hemsworth doesn’t actually say what is happening, but he told Esquire that “The second one I’m probably even more excited about. Just for people to see.”
“I just think it’s another step again. Each step we seem to take with these films, I’ve loved the fact that there’s been growth and evolution and it continues to surprise people as opposed to sort of flatlining, which was obviously always a fear–that they’d run out of ideas or run dry of creative excitement,” he continued. “For me, this whole experience has been incredible. In particular the last one.”
What does this mean? Well, all we know right now is that at the end of “Infinity War,” Thanos wiped out half of all life in the Marvel universe, including a sizable number of heroes. But the next two Marvel movies — “Ant Man and the Wasp” and “Captain Marvel” both take place before that fateful finger-snap. Which means we still have a year to think about just how messed up things are for the MCU. “Avengers 4,” which still doesn’t have a title, opens theatrically May 3, 2019.
