Mark Ruffalo teases what’s to come in Thor: Ragnarok

With a name like Ragnarok, you’d think it’s pretty obvious what to expect from the third Thor movie.

It’s the Norse mythological term for the end of days, after all. But Dr Bruce Banner himself, Mark Ruffalo, has been dropping some hints about what to expect next November. Merciful Odin, is it really that far away?

In a recent interview with Empire, Ruffalo has mentioned that there will be an element of buddy-comedy between Thor and the Hulk:

There’s a little bit of Midnight Run, with Grodin and De Niro. I feel like that’s kind of where we’re heading with this relationship between Thor and Banner. It is a universal road movie – that’s where we’re heading. It’s not where you’d think it will be, so it’s not your classic road movie but it has that structure, I think.

Although a shooting script has yet to be issued to the cast, Ruffalo seems to have been privy to many of the discussions about the script, stating that “this is what we’re talking about“. He’s also very complimentary about co-star and Odinson Chris Hemsworth, saying:

I love Chris, and it’s not an accident that we’ve been put together because we have a good time together and we goof off. The fact that we’re moving towards the smart-comedic bent plays into our relationship.

So, Thor and the Hulk go on an intergalactic road trip, set against the events of the end of the world? Sounds fun, especially if there’s finally some reference made to the Hulk punching Thor out in Grand Central Station in The Avengers. C’mon guys, is it really too much to ask for the God of Thunder to smack the Jade Giant round the head with Mjolnir? He’s not the puny god, after all…

Thor: Ragnarok is slated for release on 3 November 2017

He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
