Chris Hemsworth Confirms That Marvel Actors Aren’t Allowed To Appear In DC Films

Thor: Ragnarok

Speaking at the Supanova convention in Australia over the weekend, Chris Hemsworth said that it was “illegal” for Marvel actor to show up in DC films. So that means that any one of the Avengers actors, including Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. are prohibited from ever appearing in films like Batman, etc.

The news comes from Twitter user Tyler James, who was in attendance at the convention and present at Hemsworth’s panel. You can read the tweet below.

It’s not unheard of for actors to be tied to contracts that have them only working for one studio and not the other. However, an actor like Josh Brolin, who has appeared as Thanos in the MCU and will appear in Avengers: Infinity War, is allowed to also be in Deadpool 2, most likely because he’s still a Marvel character.

Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Idris Elba, Karl Urban, Anthony Hopkins, and Jeff Goldblum.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela (Cate Blanchett) from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization.

Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters November 3, 2017.

    Lol; that quote/answer seems rather tounge in cheek to me.

    • Axxell

      Yeah, I need more context to be able to say if this is what Hemsworth really said or meant…

  • Whatsupdoc

    And here I thought Marvel/DC weren’t in competition with one another *wink*.

    • Darthmanwe

      It’s called a “non-competition clause.”

      It’s the same deal a programmer signs when working at Google, or a tv producer signs when they start working at CBS.

      Don’t be daft.

      They are IN competition. They are not ‘rivals.’

      There is a difference. And if me, a guy who hates capitalism, can understand that……. You should too. Easily.

      • Whatsupdoc

        No kidding, of course they are in competition with each other. I was referring to Kevin Feige going on about how Marvel/DC are not in a rivalry with one another.

        http://batman-news.com/2017/06/13/marvel-president-kevin-feige-praises-wonder-woman-is-rooting-for-dc-movies-to-do-well/

        They can’t appear in any superhero films outside of Marvel Studios except for Spiderman and the same goes for WB/DC. Don’t be ignorant.

        -“Competition breeds excellence, monopsony breeds inferiority”.

        • Darthmanwe

          Verizon and AT&T are competitors. THEY ARE NOT RIVALS.

          Google and Yahoo are competitors. THEY ARE NOT RIVALS.

          Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks are competitors. THEY ARE NOT RIVALS.

          Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors ARE competitors AND rivals.

          Recognize. The. F…..g. Difference.

          • Whatsupdoc

            Tell that to Kevin Feige. http://comicbook.com/marvel/2016/11/22/marvel-vs-dc-movies-kevin-feige/

            “The only thing stopping a competitor from becoming a rival is a single drop of bad blood”. I made a *wink* joke, you need to F******G relax. They are just movies.

          • Darthmanwe

            And that’s why they are not rivals, because there isn’t bad blood between those divisions.

            Fans, sure.

            But fans are idiots. Have always been. Will always be.

            Fans are human piles of garbage.

          • Whatsupdoc

            LOL… the only fan here is you.

          • Clarence Bricklyne

            Lighten up, Francis.

          • Darthmanwe

            Francis has left the building. All that’s left is Frankie.

  • October_1985

    Why would a Marvel actor appear in one of DC’s turds?

    • Bernard Angelo Belleza

      really?are you an idiot or something?

    • Darthmanwe

      Why? The reason is usually green, and has the face of a famous person on it.

      And these days, its transaction is handled mostly online.

    • Clarence Bricklyne

      Maybe ask Oscar-award winning, JK Simmons, why he would do that.
