‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Plot Spoilers: Director teases Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk major roles
‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is an upcoming action-adventure and fantasy film directed by Taika Waititi. The director teased that Tom Hiddleston’s Loki and Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk will play important roles in the new sequel.
According to Den of Geek, Waititi admitted that Tom Hiddleston’s prince of mischief will play a key role in the new film. He said that although Loki will have a big part, he wants to make sure that this does not compete from the actual god of thunder himself.
Hemsworth and Hiddleston aren’t the only MCU cast members reprising their roles for the seventeenth installment in the massive superhero franchise. Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner a.k.a. the Hulk will be making a comeback.
According to IGN, Waititi explained that Ruffalo’s re-appearance in the MCU will play an important part in the unfolding of events in his new film.
He said, “It’s interesting, because at the moment, there’s a big conversation that’s happening about how far to push that. Whether or not The Hulk should be [verbal/conscious… I think a lot of those conversations have more to do with what’s going to come up in future movies. So I think a lot of those decisions are larger group decisions, rather than anything to do with just me or the writer.”
Meanwhile, Ruffalo hinted that ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ will focus on Hulk’s relationship with Thor. According to Gamespot, Ruffalo described it to be a “buddy comedy” reminiscent of Robert De Niro’s 1988 film ‘Midnight Run’. He said, “I feel like that’s kind of where we’re heading with this relationship between Thor and Banner. It’s not your classic road movie but it has that structure, I think.”
