Well, it was only a matter of time, but today it looks like the powers that be behind the scenes of Anthony and Joe Russo's mega-blockbuster Avengers: Endgame have finally given "Fat Thor" an official name. Dubbed "Bro Thor" by the special features for Endgame's much-anticipated upcoming release on Blu-ray, the featurette goes by the "Bro Thor" name, and the clip is described as follows:
"His appearance has changed but his heroism remains! Go behind the scenes to see how Bro Thor was created."
And I guess this "Bro Thor" title is as good as any for overweight Bad Times at the El Royale and The Cabin in the Woods hunk Chris Hemsworth. Although personally, I don't see what was so wrong with all of us just calling him Fat Thor. That nickname seemed to do the trick.
For the one soul out there that hasn't seen Avengers: Endgame let me explain this whole Bro/Fat Thor thing. You see at the end of Avengers: Infinity War Thor was basically straight responsible for Thanos wiping out half the life in the universe because he didn't "go for the head" and kill Thanos when he had the chance. This makes Thor sad and angry. So then when Avengers: Endgame kicks off, Sad and Angry Thor goes to Thanos' paradise hideout with all his buddies and proceeds to finish the job in a swift bit of work that would make the Headless Horseman from Sleepy Hollow smile ear-to-ear. If the Hessian from Hell, you know, had a mouth and ears, that is. Cut to five years later, and a killer combination of beer and video games have turned Thor into a portly version of Jeff Bridges' The Dude character from Ethan and Joel Coen's The Big Lebowski. It all makes sense. And well learn more about it all in the Avengers: Endgame special features.
It's been rumored that the next time we will see Chris Hemsworth as The God of Thunder on the big-screen will be in Slither and Super writer-director James Gunn's third Guardians of the Galaxy movie which will NOT be called Asguardians of the Galaxy thank you very much. The currently untitled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will (we assume) see the return of Chris Pratt as Peter Quill / Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon, and Vin Diesel as the voice of Millennial Groot. Karen Gillan and Pom Klementieff will probably be joining the Guardians once again as Nebula and Mantis, and I'm sure James Gunn will figure out a way to bring back Michael Rooker as Yondu Udonta. And let's hope that Sylvester Stallone will return for a more significant role as his Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 character, Stakar Ogord.
But until we hear more on James Gunns Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, remember that Anthony and Joe Russo's Avengers: Endgame starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner hits Digital HD on July 30th and Blu-ray and DVD on August 13th.
