Are they trying to hurt us?

In an interview with Esquire, Chris Hemsworth, AKA Thor, AKA the hottest Avenger, says fans are in for a real shock with the fourth Avengers flick.

Due in theaters on May 3, 2019, the still untitled fourth Marvel installment featuring Earth’s mightiest heroes will surprise and thrill fans with new twists—as if we are not still freaking out over Infinity War.

“If you were shocked by [Infinity War], I think the second one is even more shocking, for other reasons entirely,” Hemsworth said. “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.”

As the biggest box office smash hit of the year, Avengers: Infinity War was full of surprises—including letting the good guys lose. How often does that happen? But lots of the stars behind Avengers have contracts that finish up after the fourth film—though, that’s why renewals exist.

Hemsworth continued, “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 flat-lining, which was obviously always a fear—that they’d run out of ideas or run dry of creative excitement. For me, this whole experience has been incredible. In particular the last one.”

Rumor has it that the heroes we lost in this year’s heart-stopping super smash may be back (perhaps with the help of someone who can shrink down small enough on a molecular level to fit inside of an infinity stone? Just a guess). Most of the Guardians were turned to dust, but we know Vol. 3 is on the horizon. And Chris Hemsworth (Captain America) says he’s calling it quits, but Infinity War ends and he’s still alive to throw his shield around another day.

At least we don’t even have to wait a full year before finding out where our precious heroes—and universe—stands.
