‘Avengers: Endgame’: Chris Hemsworth’s Favorite Thor Line Has a Sweet Story

Some of the cast of Avengers: Endgame sat down to avoid movie spoilers during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel last night and during the interview, they were asked about their favorite lines in the Marvel films. Chris Hemsworth had a particularly touching reason for why one of Thor’s lines stands out as a favorite.

Avengers cast is making press appearances

With Avengers: Endgame coming to theaters on April 26, the cast is kicking the promotion machine into high gear — not that they have to, mind you, because it’s going to break box office records even without the press appearances.

Hemsworth and cast mates Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, and Paul Rudd took a turn at the late night appearance, sitting down on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about the film.

Cast shares favorite Avengers lines

Since spoilers have to be avoided and the cast is sworn to secrecy, Kimmel lobbed some fun questions at the cast, including asking about their favorite Marvel movie lines.

Johansson had one line that stuck with her, if only for how absurdly techie it sounded — and she admitted that since she’s not very computer savvy, it didn’t exactly roll off the tongue. She called it “so bad.”

Hemsworth’s favorite Marvel movie line has a sweet backstory

Hemsworth explained the sweet story behind one of his favorite lines that came from a set visitor on Thor: Ragnarok. He explained that a child had visited the set and actually gave a great line for Thor to say when he and The Hulk reunite in the battle arena.

Hemsworth explained: “When we were shooting Ragnarok we had a young kid on set who was unwell at the time, and had come to visit. We were shooting the scene with Hulk and Thor in the arena and it was right when I was talking to Hulk and I was saying, ‘Oh my God, it’s you, where have you been?’”

He continued: “[The kid] was on the sideline, and he was like, ‘why don’t you say, when you look up at Loki and the crowd, say ‘he’s a friend from work!’ So the kid gave us that line and it became one of the best lines of the movie.”

Paul Rudd shares the excitement of being part of the Avengers

Rudd also shared a memorable moment for him was when he filmed Captain America: Civil War because he was around the Avengers for the first time. He noted: “The very first time I filmed with these guys on Civil War, it was pretty spectacular because we’d already filmed Ant-Man but that was in a little bit in a bubble and all of a sudden I was seeing everybody in their suits and it was very exciting.”

He even got to play around with Captain America’s shield, which was a thrill. He explained: “In fact one time Chris Evans had to run off to use the bathroom or something, and he asked the prop guy to hold his shield.”

He continued: “As he walked off I just said, ‘can I try it?’ I took the shield and it was very exciting — not dissimilar to what my character was feeling in the scene!”
