Marvel casually went and ruined all our chill and productivity yesterday when they dropped a brand new trailer for Avengers: Endgame.

But while we were all freaking out and dissecting theories about how our heroes will save the day, Thor himself was crawling around on the ground with a quokka.

Chris Hemsworth has taken his first selfies with the macropods, known as the happiest animals on earth, and they are almost too much for us to handle.

Thor and cute furry animals? Our hearts.

The Aussie actor and his family were invited to explore the nature and wildlife in their homeland by Tourism Australia, and visited Rottnest Island, which has a huge population of the quokka.

And Chris couldn’t help but get down and dirty to endear himself to the creatures.

The 35-year-old wrote on Instagram: ‘Got my first quokka selfie this week at @rottnestislandwa. Epic little creatures are all over the island just cruisin through the day doin their thing. Get there and check it out! #quokkaselfie #wadjemupbidi #rottnestisland @australia.’

He then shared an adorable selfie with his new pal, who was outposing him, before cuddling up with a quokka and his wife Elsa Pataky on the ground.

Chris also posted a video feeding the quokka a plant from his own mouth, writing: ‘Spent 3 weeks crawling around the dirt, studying the Quokkas movements, mimicking their language and eventually gained their trust and was accepted as one of them, I now go by the name Quokkachris.’

The Australian tourism board was chuffed with the pics, commenting: ‘Forget about Lady and the Tramp, we have Quokka and the Chris’, while Chris’s sister-in-law Miley Cyrus wrote: ‘This photo will break records. #NothingBreaksLikeTheInternet.’

Chris may be enjoying all the treats Australia has to offer with wife Elsa and their three children, six-year-old India and four-year-old twins Sasha and Tristan, right now, but he’ll be very busy over the coming month.

Avengers: Endgame hits cinemas at the end of April, and Chris returns as Thor for the climax of the Avengers series.

The brand new trailer features plenty of the son of Odin, including an amazing scene where he meets Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, for the first time.

Avengers: Endgame is out on 25 April.
