Why Isn't Thor In Spider-Man: Far From Home? Tom Holland's Reply Burns Chris Hemsworth

Spider-Man and Thor split shot Avengers Endgame Spider-Man Far From Home

Move over, Benedict Cumberbatch. I think we've found the new best person to do press with Tom Holland. Or is that "Tom Hiddleston"?

Avengers stars Chris Hemsworth and Tom Holland haven't spent much time together as Thor and Peter Parker, but they were in In The Heart Of The Sea together, and that's when Hemsworth told the Marvel guys Holland would be great for Spider-Man. The two stars also have a history of stunt videos and trash talk on social media. Now that they are both post-Avengers: Endgame, they are out in the world promoting their new projects together. Holland has the next MCU movie Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Hemsworth has Men in Black: International.

Chris Hemsworth -- no longer "a little bit portly" as Fat/Drunk Thor -- shared a video of the two Marvel stars interviewing each other, and it's gold. It's better than you'd even hope before pressing play.

The first question might be my favorite, when Chris Hemsworth wants to know why Thor wasn't in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Instead of pointing out that Thor left with the Guardians of the Galaxy at the end of Avengers: Endgame -- so why would he be part of Peter Parker's school trip to Europe? -- Tom Holland went for this lovely burn:

Tom Holland: 'Cause, you know, it was really for the like front-running Avengers in this movie. It's all about kind of who's going to step up and take RDJ's spot.Chris Hemsworth: Which is why I ask, 'Where is Thor in this one?'

No one can take RDJ's spot. Although based on the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailers, it looks like Nick Fury might possibly step in as Peter Parker's new tough love mentor?

At least Thor got to have an easter egg of sorts in Spider-Man: Homecoming. In the interview, Chris Hemsworth also talked about going "full Method" to play the more "portly" Thor in Avengers: Endgame. That's his push for the Oscar.

Chris Hemsworth also joked about seeing a knockoff copy of Spider-Man: Far From Home already down at the market:

Chris Hemsworth: They've recast you already.Tom Holland: Who with?Chris Hemsworth: Jake Gyllenhaal.Tom Holland: Oh really?

Nice. Tom Holland returned with more burns, naming Liam Hemsworth his favorite actor in the whole world. Asked for another Hemsworth, he went for Luke, and then Chris' daughter India.

It's all pretty great, and leads me to believe Tom Holland's Peter Parker should become Thor's latest roommate, alongside Darryl of course, when they do the next one of those Team Thor sketches. Chris Hemsworth did say he'd be up for mockumentary TV show.

Men in Black: International opens in theaters next week on June 14. Spider-Man: Far From Home opens July 2. Keep up with all of the 2019 movie release dates with our handy guide.

Gina Carbone
