Chris Evans And Chris Hemsworth Describe The Battle Between Cap, Thor And Iron Man

The two actors describe the epic clash between Captain America, Iron Man and Thor in The Avengers, revealing that it "basically wipes out the entire mountaintop and forest." Read on for more details. [Spoilers Ahead]

It's no secret that Captain America, Iron Man and Thor will all come to blows at some point in The Avengers. Chris Hemsworth explains the cause of this epic confrontation. "Thor arrives a little late to the party after The Avengers have captured Loki and he tears the place apart, grabs Loki and disappears. Once they get to the mountaintop, he attempts a heart-to-heart with Loki, but that doesn’t end well and Iron Man shows up and they’re feeling each out other in an incredibly aggressive way. Thor is surprised by the strength of Iron Man and Captain America’s shield and it ends up being a pretty epic battle that basically wipes out the entire mountaintop and forest."

This battle was the first scene of this type that Chris Evans filmed, and seeing Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth in full costume isn't an experience he will soon forget. "For that scene, we were shooting nights on this beautiful, wooded mountaintop with Iron Man and Thor duking it out. And then being the peacekeeper that he is, Captain America goes and tries to break them up. This was actually the first time I’d seen Chris Hemsworth walk on set in full costume with the long red cape. And then Robert Downey Jr. comes on set in his full Iron Man armor. I remember thinking how much they both embodied their characters in costume. It was such a cool moment for me, standing there next to them both, because all of a sudden I felt like my Captain America suit took on new meaning. I felt that I was a part of something much bigger."

Chris Hemsworth adds, "Robert is just a fantastic actor and he is certainly the godfather of 'The Avengers.' He started it all with ‘Iron Man’ and there were a number of times when I’ve asked him how he navigates this. Or what do you think of this? He is always very gracious and open with giving advice, which is really helpful." This is a sentiment echoed by Marvel Studios President and executive producer of the film, Kevin Feige. "The great thing about the Marvel Universe is that it takes place in the real world; it’s not a fictitious Metropolis. A big part of this equation is having a team that can deliver that right balance of emotion so that audiences can connect to the human element of the story. We have been rewarded for making those slightly against- the-grain choices in finding the right actor for the job, whether they’ve ever been in these types of films or not. When I think about the cast in this film from top to bottom, I still get giddy with excitement because they all are fantastic artists who understand what we need in terms of performance and all bring their own unique sensibilities that elevate each of their roles."
