Chris Hemsworth’s Marvel Cinematic Universe character Thor was an integral part of the first Avengers movie, but as the shared-world series has continued, he’s been moved out of the main storyline in preparation for his sidebar movie, Thor: Ragnarok. In an Instagram video Hemsworth posted today, he pouted a little about that. While supposedly on a set visit for Avengers: Infinity War, which began shooting back in January 2017, he also took out his frustrations on action figures of the Avengers.
Poor guy. But what else could this short be telling us that ordinary fans might be missing?

I asked The Verge staff about the kinds of speculative clickbait stories we could launch after watching this video. Here’s where we landed.
