Aside from featuring a sensibly quiffed Norse god, not too much is known about Waititi's third Thor instalment, except that it will see the God of Thunder pairing up with Ruffalo's Hulk. "There's a little bit of Midnight Run (1988), with [Charles] Grodin and [Robert] De Niro," Ruffalo told Empire magazine. "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," continues Ruffalo, adding cryptically, "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."
Alongside Ruffalo and Hemsworth, new Marvel Cinematic Universe additions for Thor: Ragnarok include Jeff Goldblum (The Grand Budapest Hotel) as the mysterious Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson (Creed) as Valkyrie, Karl Urban (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Skurge, also known as The Executioner, and Cate Blanchett (The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button) as the scheming Hela. "With the additions of Cate, Jeff, Tessa, Karl and Mark [Ruffalo] to the cast we have the makings of [Thor's] most dangerous and heroic adventure yet," promises Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
Thor: Ragnarok will be out here on 27 October 2017.
