Behind-the-scenes Avengers: Endgame footage shows Thor’s transformation

‘Hi, my name is Thor. I’m 22 years old. I live on Asgard. And I like sugar’

The digital release of Avengers: Endgame means more scenes, more heroes, and more sweet, sweet behind-the-scenes footage. One of the newly released clips dives into Chris Hemsworth’s take on “new Thor” as seen throughout the events of Endgame.

Thor got a new look in Avengers: Endgame, trading his ripped physique for a couple of pounds and his neatly cropped locks for a ragged ’do. Some of the characters don’t get it, but at the end, Thor proves that he’s just fine with the way he looks — and most importantly, still worthy of wielding Mjolnir.

The clip shows chiseled Chris Hemsworth’s transformation, as well as the humor and heart he brought to this new version of Thor.

“Being able to do this new version of Thor is hugely liberating and fun,” he tells the cameras.

“He’d been playing the character for a while,” says Tessa Thompson, “and wanted to find something new.”

We don’t know if Thor will retain his new look in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder, but he’ll definitely retain the humor and heart that the more recent movies bring to the character.

Avengers: Endgame is out on digital services now, and on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K Blu-ray on Aug. 13.
