Watch Thor explain why he wasn’t in Civil War

He tried his best to be a good friend

Like his friend the Hulk, Thor was noticeably absent from the latest Captain America movie, Civil War. There were a thousand reasons for why that could have been, but in a new video from Marvel Studios, the Asgardian god explains that after the stressful events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, he just needed a break from saving the world.

So instead of hanging around America, he went to Australia where he moved in with a roommate named Darryl and began teaching kindergarteners at local elementary schools. When Thor learns about his friends Tony Stark and Steve Rogers’ fight, he tries to get involved, only to find out that neither of them want to actually speak to him.

There’s an appearance from Bruce Banner in the video as well, who plays an important role in trying to get Thor and Tony Stark to talk out their differences during a phone call. Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) will star alongside each other in the new Thor movie, Raganarok, set to be released next next November.

Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson and Jamie Alexander will also star.
