Chris Hemsworth Says The Surprises in Avengers 4 Could Top Infinity War

We are still reeling nearly a month after the release of Avengers: Infinity War. It will take time and hours of self-reflection to heal from what we have witnessed. Watch out, SPOILERS: We lost more than a few good Avengers in the battle against Thanos. We have been scraping and scrounging to find hope that Avengers 4 will lighten our load, but hope has yet to appear. In fact, one of the surviving characters implied that it could get worse from here.

Chris Hemsworth, who of course plays Thor, told Esquire that the next Avengers film could be even more shocking.

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

Come on, Chris. ‘If’ we were shocked? Everyone was completely devastated. The only ray of light here is that Hemsworth does say the next film is shocking for different reasons. Maybe there is hope that we won’t loose any more characters who are near and dear to our hearts. In fact, could that signal a surprising resurrection?

Hemsworth is right. The Marvel Universe is incredibly complex and still coherent, so there could be some breathtaking moments of heroism in store. We’ve had our fair share of destruction and are ready to turn things around. Also, by the time we get to Avengers 4, we’ll have The Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) and Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) on the team. They are both major assets who could really make a difference and change things up for the better.

Avengers 4 hits theaters May 2019.
