Avengers: Infinity War won’t stop shattering records, nearly three weeks after its release, so Chris Hemsworth decided to send a message to fans.
He did so on Instagram while thanking folks “for supporting this little community theatre production,” but more importantly, he did so while mocking the heck out of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s habit of marking any occasion with a gym video.
The God of Thunder has gently trolled The Rock by imitating him in a cheeky Instagram video, thanking China and the world for their ongoing support of the juggernaut that is The Avengers.
“Just taking a leaf out of The Rock’s book, every time he does a post he’s in the gym, so I’m just gonna do a couple of curls while we’re chatting,” says Hemsworth while reaching for a dumbbell.
In response, The Rock’s taking things in stride, unlike his reaction to every grunt from Vin Diesel. And as far as Johnson is not interested in engaging in a war with The Avengers, he tweeted congrats to Hemsworth while also suggesting that he “be naked from the waist down” next time around.
Post midnight workout. Cruisin’ by to show love and gratitude to y’all around the world for the Baby Tiana and RAMPAGE love. And I’m a big boy, gotta strong chin and love a good fight so AVENGERS hit me with your best shot & knock me out 😂💪🏾. Best of luck and congrats in advance on breaking records – it’s GREAT for our business. Everyone wins. Thank you again fans worldwide for the love. Love U back 🌎🤟🏾 #MidnightTraining #WestCoastIronParadise #SweatEquity
“First of all, of you’re truly going to take a page outta my book when shooting gym videos, then you’d be naked from the waist down. Never mind.”

Hopefully such social media battles between Hollywood’s two biggest heavyweights are more than enough to keep us entertained.
“A HUGE congrats to you brotha. You just made history! Very proud and happy for you and the team!” The Rock ended.
