The Marvel Cinematic Universe has had a few missteps over its Ten Year history – The Mandarin twist in Iron Man 3, the recasting of characters early on… pretty much the whole of Thor: The Dark World, but it sounds like none of these are on the top of Kevin Feige‘s list of regrets. Now as the hype for Avengers: Infinity War reaches its maximum, the Marvel head honcho has revealed what surprising factor he would go back and change.
In a recent interview with Uproxx, Feige revealed his biggest regret in the universe he helped guide and it’s a fairly minor one – Thor’s Eyebrows. That’s right, his biggest regret is the dye job they did on Chris Hemsworth for the first Thor film back in 2011.
“I’ll tell you one specific example I just thought of today and I laugh at it. Definitively, the one thing I would definitely do differently if I had to do it over again, is we would not have dyed Chris Hemsworth’s eyebrows blond in the first Thor.”
“Because we were like, Thor is blond! He has to be blond! And Hemsworth was great and awesome and pulled it off, but there are a couple of shots I watch and I’m like, oh my God, that poor guy, we made him freaking dye his eyebrows! That’s ridiculous! And I can laugh about it now because Hemsworth is Thor and he doesn’t need long hair, or a cape, or a hammer, or two eyeballs to be Thor.”
It is funny that this was such a big thing to the studio back in the early stages, especially when you see just how far Hemsworth’s Asgardian has come since that first film – with most of these changes coming in last year’s Thor: Ragnarok. It does show just how proud Feige must be of his franchise, given that this is his biggest regret and seeing as Avengers: Infinity War is looking to break even more records when it is released this Thursday.
