Why We Didn’t See Thor during Civil War

Although Captain America: Civil War was a massive hit last year, we didn’t see some of the major superheroes who can be considered instrumental for MCU. One of the major absentee from the list was Thor which ultimately raised several questions. And now, we finally have an answer thanks to Screen Rant who released an interview with producer Brad Winderbaum.

The interview was part of a set visit for Thor: Ragnarok. During the interview, the producer revealed that Thor was busy chasing Thanos around without much of a success. Talking about the absence and how the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is shaping up, he said, “The journey he’s been on at the beginning of this movie, it’s not like five minutes after Ultron ends we start this movie: it’s a couple years later. And as we know, at the end of Ultron he’s started this quest to find the puppet master, and the Infinity Stones, and all that. What he realized really fast, I don’t think I’m giving too much away because it’s right at the top of the film, but basically that one quest, that universe-ending peril that he was trying to figure out dovetailed or branched off into any number of universe ending-perils that he’s been adventuring on for the two years leading up to the beginning of this film.”

“We find him as a lone gunslinger, you know, a guy who’s been adventuring around the cosmos for two years right at the top of our movie. He’s a more savvy version of the character. In Dark World he has trouble navigating that Dark Elf spaceship…but that’s the Thor of the past.”

As of now, all we can do is speculate as Marvel is yet to release a teaser trailer for Avengers: Infinity War. However, with Thor: Ragnarok is coming up pretty soon, we might finally have some answers related to the highly anticipated Infinity War which might set up the storyline of Avengers: Infinity War.
