While Thor turned the tide during the climactic Battle of Wakanda, he failed to stop Thanos from enacting his final plan in Avengers: Infinity War.
In a belated birthday tweet to co-star Chris Hemsworth, Chadwick Boseman called out Hemsworth’s Thor for failing to go for the kill shot in his rematch with the Mad Titan. Instead of fatally striking the supervillain’s head with his new hammer Stormbreaker, the Asgardian Avenger opts to hit Thanos’ torso to gloat in a moment of mistimed hubris. The gravely wounded villain then takes the opportunity to use the Infinity Gauntlet to fulfill his mission of wiping out half of all life in the universe.
Shoulda gone for his head, bro. It was literally right there. Just sayin. Happy belated Born Day, @chrishemsworth! #InfinityWar pic.twitter.com/oc3NNGWBBU

Boseman’s Black Panther has valid reason for good-naturedly poking fun at his co-star: T’Challa was among the characters suddenly wiped from existence by the already iconic snap from the Gauntlet.
With Avengers 4 scheduled for release in May, Thor will have another chance to make things right and save the day before Hemsworth’s next birthday.
