connectVideo’Avengers: Endgame directors urge leakers, not to spoil their movie
Brothers Anthony and Joe Russo plead with fans not to spoil the movie for other moviegoers.
Actor Chris Hemsworth has mixed feelings now that his yearslong stint the portrayal of the “Thor” in Marvel’s popular “Avengers” film series has come to an end.
Hemsworth – who alongside wife Elsa Pataky attend the premiere for “Avengers: Endgame” on Monday – spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the movie, which opens this week and closes the book over the first 11 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
“It is always a nerve-racking experience, but I don’t know, we literally left it all on the field with this,” the actor told the news outlet, in part. “I think we all have a sense of pride.”

“It is a pure quality to it, because this is the last time that this gathering of this group of people is gonna be here together,” he added.
The film ends with the long cliffhanger of “Avengers: Infinity War”, in which half of the universe turned to dust.
“I mean, I have heard nothing but incredible things,” Hemsworth, who has not yet seen the film when he spoke to ET, said, adding that he was “nervous” to watch it for the first time.

Separately, Hemsworth and fellow “Avengers” star Chris Evans has admitted to crying about the end of the series, of which 22 films.
“I don’t know about you, but I cried like six times,” Evans told The Associated Press at the premiere.
“I cried more than six times, Chris,” Hemsworth said in a comment.
The premiere was Monday, a who’s who of Marvel and Hollywood, with actors and directors from the MCU movies in the past and the present, turning to see the film, including the likes of Natalie Portman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bradley Cooper, Jon Favreau, and even Matt Damon, who some may remember had a cameo in “Thor: Ragnarok.” Luke Hemsworth, Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus also came out to see the film and support their family.

Hemsworth also revealed while speaking with Entertainment Tonight that his three children — India, 6, and two sons, Sasha and Tristan, 5 — seem to prefer other Marvel superheroes rather than their father Thor character.
“I try to persuade them to [favor Thor], you know, sort of give them special treats, but no they are not,” he said, according to the outlet.
“I think they like Captain America. They want Wonder Woman and yes, the Hulk but when they met Mark Ruffalo and they were like where’s the Hulk? I was like, well… Children, you know? What do you do?”
The long-awaited film is scheduled to be released on Friday.
