Know how there’s talk about that rivalry between Marvel and DC movies? All along, it’s been in good hearted fun, with one superhero poking fun at the other, and vice versa. We all win when Iron Man and Batman trade jabs. But now, Chris Hemsworth — who plays the God of Thunder, Thor — has let it slip that while he can be buddies with DC heroes, he can never be a DC hero himself.
According to a Twitter user who was in the audience at Supernova Comic-Con over the weekend, Hemsworth said it would actually be illegal for him, as a Marvel star, to take a role in a DC Film.
Of course, we don’t completely know the context or tone of the quote, but regardless, it has caused quite a stir on the internet. However, it does make sense that Marvel wouldn’t want to share their all mighty Thor with a major studio competitor.
BUT according the Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, there’s definitely no beef between himself and DC Comics president Geoff Johns.
Plus, Feige definitely didn’t object when Josh Brolin, who stars in Marvel’s Avengers as big bad Thanos, took on another adventure role in Fox’s Deadpool 2.
“We don’t have anything written into our contracts about other roles that people can do,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “Indiana Jones and Han Solo are the same person…it hasn’t been a problem. And I think Thanos and Cable are two very different characters.”
So basically, we’ll just take that as Hemsworth is a free agent, and we can happily prepare for him to conquer all the fantastical universes as he’d like.
