Plus: The actor teases Cate Blanchett’s villainous Hela
Mark Ruffalo will be seeing green again when he returns as the Hulk in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, and the actor says the film will be a buddy movie of Avenger-level proportions.
“It’s an intergalactic buddy road movie with Banner and Thor,” Ruffalo told Entertainment Tonight at a press junket for his latest movie, Now You See Me 2.
The actor added fans will see “a lot more Hulk” this time around, doing what Bruce Banner/The Big Green Guy does best. When Now You See Me 2 costar Woody Harrelson asked if the Hulk will be even “Hulk-ier” in this new film, Ruffalo responded, “The Hulk gets Hulk-ier. The Hulk Hulks out. Hulk-ier and bigger.”
Marvel confirmed the cast for Ragnarok last week, including returning stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin. The new cast members include Creed star Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, and Cate Blanchett as the villainous Hela, the ruler of the realms of the dead.
“She plays the worst of the worst,” Ruffalo told Entertainment Tonight of Blanchett’s character. “So evil. She is going to kill us. It’s such a great part she gets to play.”
Thor: Ragnarok arrives in theaters Nov. 3, 2017.
