Ok, Thor Ragnarok is shaping up to be one exciting entry into the MCU.

With the cast announced last week blowing our minds (here), now Mark Ruffalo is blowing it more by describing it as a “buddy road movie”.

Imagine Lethal Weapon. In space. With Hulk. And Thor.

The actor said: “It’s an intergalactic buddy road movie with Banner and Thor.”

But don’t despair at the mention of Banner, Hulk will be getting involved too:“I think it will be smashing. You’ll see a lot more Hulk … the Hulk gets Hulk-ier. The Hulk Hulks out. Hulk-ier and bigger.”


He goes on to talk about new villain Cate Blanchett as Hela and she sounds pretty awesome: “She plays the worst of the worst. So evil. She is going to kill us. It’s such a great part she gets to play.”

Oh and in case you were wondering if Jaimie Alexander was coming back as Lady Sif, it seems she has taken to Twitter to seemingly reassure people that she is…

In related news, remember all the rumours that Tom Hiddleston was set to step down as the villainous (mostly) Loki? Well, the actor says we shouldn’t worry too much about that… check out the full interview below.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
