Mark Ruffalo confirms the Hulk's role in Thor 3, saying it's a buddy picture

Mark Ruffalo has been discussing the Hulk’s appearance in upcoming three-quel Thor: Ragnarok, and has not only confirmed the big green rage-monster’s presence in the new film, but has gone as far as to describe is as a “buddy picture”. However, that’s not to say that the duo won’t get into a little rough and tumble along the way.

“I don’t really know that much about it, but I think it’s going to be a buddy picture with Thor and Bruce Banner,” said Ruffalo in an interview with New York Daily News. “I think they’ll probably fight. There’s no doubt, everyone wants us to fight at one point.”

“I know that it’s about [the Norse legends of] Ragnarok, or the end times in the Marvel universe as it pertains to Thor,” concludes the star, “which seems to be quite the theme these days in movies.” It had previously been suggested that the new film will see Thor and Hulk leave Asgard on some sort of interplanetary adventure, although specifics remain elusive as ever. However, it does sound like the new film will see the two erstwhile Avengers knocking seven bells out of each other, which is good enough for us.
