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
