Chris Hemsworth Weighs In On Why Thor's Eyepatch Was Missing In AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR's Early Previews

Chris Hemsworth has revealed why Thor's eyepatch was missing from the Comic-Con trailers for Avengers: Infinity War and explains the method used to bring it to life in the highly anticipated ensemble...

Thor lost his eye during the final battle with Hela in Thor: Ragnarok but the convention trailers and promo art for Avengers: Infinity War have shown the God of Thunder without his eyepatch. As a result, there's been a lot of speculation that the hero will somehow regain his vision but it turns out that it all boils down to Marvel wanting to keep that plot point under wraps and it later being added with CGI.

In a new interview, Chris Hemsworth has revealed that wearing the practical eyepatch was a nightmare and confirms that the one we'll see in Avengers: Infinity War is going to be added in post-production.
 
"It was... yeah, I remembered being... with the eyepatch, the story unrolling, 'Yeah, cool, this is interesting.' And then the day that we put the eyepatch on I was like, 'This is ridiculous,'" Hemsworth said. "The thing kept falling off, and we didn't have the thing [gestures an eyepatch strap]. So it became a CG eyepatch, which I was stoked about... But I'm happy with that trade [for the wig]. It has its downsides. But the upside is that it's an hour less in hair and makeup without the wig on."
 
It's important to remember that while the eyepatch looks cool, the amount of stunts done by Hemsworth means that a CGI version was the only realistic option. It is, however, interesting that Marvel didn't just choose to get rid of the straps in post or come up with an easier to use real one. However, both of those could have hindered the actor's performance, so the studio probably ended up making the best choice. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments section down below.
