Before the world is taken by storm by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there is another movie coming out that features a few members of the MCU family. In The Heart of The Sea hits theaters next week and two of the stars happen to be Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Tom Holland (Spider-Man).
The entire cast has been making the rounds promoting the movie. To no one’s surprise, those two will be asked plenty about their futures in the MCU and what their characters will be doing. We already know that Hemsworth will next suit up in Thor: Ragnarok, set to begin production in June, but while speaking to MTV he voiced his interest in making an appearance in another space franchise.
I’d love him to hang out with the Guardians crew. I love that film and there’s a great amount of fun to be had.
Thor having a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would be a great way to show the journey he is on as he learns about the Infinity Stones. Plus, if one of James Gunn‘s tweets has any weight to it, we could see a familiar face, such as Thor, in the next installment.
@JamesGunn If you can take one character from marvel universe to fit in gotg which one would you choose?

One of Hemsworth’s co-stars is Cillian Murphy. Murphy is no stranger to comic book movies as he previously portrayed Scarecrow in Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy. However, he told IGN that he is now interested in joining the MCU.
I love those movies. My kids love those movies and I hear there’s an amazing new Spider-Man I’ll be checking out… I’d love to be involved.
There are plenty of roles that Murphy could play in the continuously expanding MCU. One role we here at MCUExchange would love to see him tackle is Maximus the Mad in Inhumans.
Would a Thor/Guardians team-up interest you? What should they be doing? Do you want to see Murphy join the universe? Let us know in the comments!
