‘Captain America: Civil War’: Why Thor and Hulk were Not Included in the Movie

We have seen pretty much every character in “Captain America: Civil War” and all of them are going to fight it out with the best of their strengths and capabilities. However how much we try to avoid this fact, many can’t seem to get over the exclusion of Thor and Hulk in the movie. Here’s the reason why two of the most powerful “Avengers” were not a part of this movie.


According to Comic Book Resources, screenwriters of “Captain America: Civil War” Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely in an interview were gracious enough to explain why the two mightiest Avengers were not a part of this movie. They elaborated that if they were to put these two heroes in the movie, the battle wouldn’t really last long. Imagine having Thor and Hulk fighting for either side, once that happens the fight will wrap up quickly.

Considering the damage both Hulk and Thor did to the Chitauri army and the extra beating Loki got by the hands of Hulk in “Avengers” alone, we can understand why both of them were straightaway not included in the movie. What if one were to support the Accords and the other not support it, it would basically end up being a Hulk vs Thor movie because surely the others wouldn’t want to interfere between them. As far as both the heroes go, they already have an exclusive opportunity to themselves because Thor and Hulk will be appearing in 2017 scheduled “Thor: Ragnarok” where both of them will be either fighting side by side or each other.


Cinema Blend added that Markus believes given the fight they were to show in “Captain America: Civil War,” they needed an appropriate roster because if the Hulk were to be a part of this, the only thing either side had to do was convince him to be on their side. As we saw in “Avengers,” Hulk almost put down an army of Chitauri and he was basically one of the reasons why Tony was so sure of surviving when he confronted Loki.

“Captain America: Civil War” will release next year on May 6th.
