If this had just one source I’d be reluctant to buy into it, but outlets like Deadline and Variety seem to be pretty damn sure it’s happening, so I guess it probably is. For now it sounds like Marvel are talking to Mark Ruffalo (and very close to a deal) about coming back as the green rage monster for the 3rd Thor flick, Thor: Ragnarok. I don’t know about you but for me that sounds like the stuff fanboy dreams are made of. Thor and Hulk either fighting each other or the enemy, those were some of the best parts of the first Avengers, so of course I’m 100% on board with this news.
Marvel got Robert Downey Jr. to join Captain America: Civil War, I’m positive they can absolutely do the same with Mark Ruffalo for Thor: Ragnarok. Besides Chris Hemsworth and hopefully Mark Ruffalo, the new film will also see the return of Jaimie Alexander or Tom Hiddleston. Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) is directing.
The only sad news is that Thor: Ragnarok is set to open November 3rd 2017. This could very well lead into some sort of Planet Hulk thing.
