Chris Hemsworth On The Tension Between Captain America And Thor In THE AVENGERS

Chris Hemsworth On The Tension Between Captain America And Thor In THE AVENGERS

The actor discusses the tension between the team in Joss Whedon's highly anticipated comic book movie ensemble, focusing specifically on Thor and Captain America as well as Loki's role in proceedings.

Talking to Empire Magazine, Chris Hemsworth has commented briefly on the friction between The Avengers, focusing specifically on Thor and Captain America. "They're used to being leaders and if you put them all in a room, it's going to be about who runs the show," he said. "They all have some friction, absolutely, but it's about the journey of the team."

However, the main reason for the team coming to blows is apparently a fairly simple one. The villainous Loki and his mysterious "alien" army. "Thor has a different opinion about how this should be taken care of, because it's his brother," the actor revealed. "I think it's heartbreaking, because he feels very responsible for why Loki has spiralled off. He keeps trying to appeal to whatever good was once there."

"There's a couple of shots in the trailer of Thor and Captain America duking it out and that gives you an idea of how well they get along at the beginning..." he teased. Remember, pick up the magazine when it goes on sale next week for more on The Avengers.

HAMMER VS SHIELD, makes me think of the judas priest song between the hammer and the anvil, i know this movie is gonna rock and i wanna see some super heroes duking it out
dahamma - 12/17/2011, 5:15 AM
Bout time we heard from Chris H. But this sounds about right, Thor has always tried to appeal to the good he believes is in Loki
Jolt17 - 12/17/2011, 5:15 AM
Sounds great, I really need to see what is really going to happen between them in the movie soon. 2012 needs to come faster indeed.

This is going to be EPIC!

Kaedus - 12/17/2011, 6:00 AM
Captain America is one of the most respected people in the whole Marvel Universe. I want to see this start to come about between their interactions towards the end of the film.

Do not camp this film up Whedon!!
ballstothewall - 12/17/2011, 6:59 AM
I really want Thor to wear his helmet this time!
batmanrises - 12/17/2011, 7:03 AM
Thor vs Cap...That is one lopsided fight...Hopefully there's a good reason for them fighting.
darCNite1989 - 12/17/2011, 7:07 AM
Maybe Cap made a dumb blonde joke that didn't sit very well with the god of thunder. Or maybe Thor's a Red Sox fan.
Dawgfan229 - 12/17/2011, 7:08 AM
thor should beat him in a 1/2 second !! But I'm sure they make it a draw so Cap won't look bad.
batmanrises - 12/17/2011, 7:10 AM
Dawgfan229 - I'm sure it'll be something corny like making Cap look good, even though he wouldn't and shouldn't survive very long if they fought.
Supes17 - 12/17/2011, 7:13 AM
[frick], I dont even want this film to have a story. Just 3 hours of nonstop Avengers kicking the shit out of each other!
Can't wait to see Scar-Jo's ass in IMAX:p
Supes17 - 12/17/2011, 7:16 AM
Movie Hawkeye vs. Cap
How long would that fight be
ADATHEHUTT - 12/17/2011, 7:17 AM
Thor should win any fight with his fellow avengers!!! Why?...because he is a god.
mil05 - 12/17/2011, 7:25 AM
Thor and Caps fight is interrupted by Furys introduction to the Skrull like beings (cant reveal)
Saw some shaving of the film last week, Evans seems to be playing the main antagonist in this tale, the rest are along for the ride.

Lets just say the 'mystery villain' wont surprise anyone, he will make an appearance in the last 15 mins,
shadearts - 12/17/2011, 7:28 AM
Thor may be a god* but the Hulk is the Beast lol ...HULK SMASH in the end of a Nucleur holocast nothing will be alive but the Hulk and cockroaches LMBO
SageMode - 12/17/2011, 7:34 AM
Thor's not a Demi god. A Demi good is someone who's half god half human, like Hercules. Thor is technically half Asgardian half Elder God, since his mom is Gaea

Simonsonrules - 12/17/2011, 8:13 AM
@mil05: Just curious, do you mean that Cap is the main player, or the main "s" stirrer?
GUNSMITH - 12/17/2011, 8:13 AM
valeriesghost - 12/17/2011, 8:24 AM
@mil05 if what you say is true i can live with that. As long as everyone takes on the hulk at some point.

@marvel72, you said it perfectly
valeriesghost - 12/17/2011, 8:26 AM
It makes sense for Capt to be the main Antagonist because he will be the emotional centerpiece for the movie with his recent backstory.
Lert - 12/17/2011, 8:27 AM
i keep hearing that chant over and over in my head.. The Dark Knight Rises will Explode! Oh im sorry im in the womens section of CBM.. Carry on with your Mighty Avengers talk!
werty - 12/17/2011, 8:40 AM
Thor and Captain America duking it out? Great that's exactly what I fear. Damn Josh Whedon going all fanboyish and making Captain America magically keep up with Thor even though Thor should be able to wipe him without any effort

Honestly after Batman Captain America is probably the worst character when it comes to fanboys
Lilvic92 - 12/17/2011, 8:49 AM
Man the lengths people will go to troll the Avengers articles is rather pathetic
*cough* Lert *cough*
valeriesghost - 12/17/2011, 8:49 AM
Damn... @lert is trying to start some SHIIIT lol
valeriesghost - 12/17/2011, 8:50 AM
The womens section, i disagree, but at the same time LMAO
Lert - 12/17/2011, 8:53 AM
i was wondering if you guys caught that.. just thought i'de sneak in and disrupt.. keep the DC/Marvel shoving!
GreyChaos13Zero - 12/17/2011, 9:07 AM
am i the only one who thinks this movie can go wrong so many different ways. i'm not hatin, this is a superhero movie of a life time. first of its kind(well kind of), i just hope they knock us out of the park with it. maybe DC can take a couple of notes from Marvel and bring us a JL movie
JakeMurdock89 - 12/17/2011, 9:10 AM
Cant wait for the second trailer, anyone have any ideas wen it will be released?
eleven59 - 12/17/2011, 9:11 AM
Friction between cap and IM and cap and Thor- i like it!!

.... That is until thor gets knocked down later in the movie and cap instinctively picks up Mjolnir without knowing of its enchantment and successfully throws it to the amazement of thor!!!
FrankGarret - 12/17/2011, 9:21 AM
I feel that I should point this out;

An anatagonist is the main bad guy, who in this case would be Loki.

If anything, Cap would be a protagonist.
Fogs - 12/17/2011, 9:26 AM
So this basically confirms that Thor doesn't agree with Shield having his brother captive. Maybe the scene in the woods where he's attacking cap is when the shield plan is revealed to Thor.

And that departure scene is when thor takes his brother back to asgard, with those weird cuffs.
Jimdlux - 12/17/2011, 9:29 AM
I remember the scene in the trailer, I figured that was the last time we ever see Cap...god vs. mortal and all...
