The upcoming Thor: Ragnarok has already promised us the gladiator fight of the century, featuring two of our favorite Avengers; Hulk and Thor. This sequence of the two heroes battling it out it out has been featured prominently in marketing material, making it one of the most anticipated moments of the year. That is something that Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo has picked up on, going out of his way to tease the upcoming battle.
Ruffalo took to Instagram to give his take on his upcoming gladiator match using action figures. You can check out his post below.
This battle will, of course, be a rematch of the events that occurred in 2012s Avengers. That original fight between The God of Thunder and the Incredible Hulk did not yield a winner; so we’ll have to wait until November to see what the second match has in store.
In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok”, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok – the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization – at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladictorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!
Directed by Taika Waititi and starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins, Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok opens in theaters on November 3, 2017.
5 Reasons We’re Excited For ‘Thor: Ragnarok’
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out on home media and Spider-Man: Homecoming has been playing in theaters for a while now, so it’s time to look forward to the next Marvel movies, the first being Thor: Ragnarok.
The trailer for the film is incredible. The vibe, the action, the set-design, the soundtrack, every element of the trailer screams, “This is a different kind of Thor movie.”
And that’s exactly what we need. Thor: The Dark World was the most easily forgettable Marvel sequel, only distinguishable from the original for its use of fan-favorite villain Loki. Thor: Ragnarok looks poised to switch up the formula, seeming more like a fun intergalactic romp than a brooding space epic.
Judging from the trailer and other positive buzz, there’s plenty of cause to be excited for Thor: Ragnarok. Here are the 5 reasons why. Click next to get started!
