    While it seems unlikely that we'll see a standalone Hulk movie any time soon, the green-skinned Avenger is set to play a major role in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. Hulk star Mark Ruffalo has been speaking about what fans can expect from his team-up with the Norse god.

    In an interview with Empire, Ruffalo revealed a surprising influence on the tone of the third Thor movie. "There's a little bit of Midnight Run, with [Charles] Grodin and [Robert] De Niro," he said, referring to the classic 1988 comedy. "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. 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."

    Ruffalo's comments about the comedic aspects of the movie fit with the choice of director for the project. In October, it was reported by BDM that New Zealand director Taika Waititi had signed on to helm the movie. Waititi's previous films are the acclaimed comedies What We Do in the Shadows and Eagle Vs Shark, and he was chosen by Marvel executives to reportedly "balance out the grimness" of the Ragnarok script.

    Today is Thor day it would seem - They really should have done these announcements yesterday ;)

    [​IMG]

    Two-time Oscar®-winner Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine,” “Carol, “Cinderella”) joins Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok” as the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, along with Jeff Goldblum (the upcoming “Independence Day: Resurgence,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Jurassic Park”) who joins the cast as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson (“Creed,” “Selma”) who will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban (“Star Trek” trilogy, “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King”) who will add his might to the fray as Skurge.

    Rounding out the cast for the film is three-time Oscar®-nominee Mark Ruffalo (“Spotlight,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “Foxcatcher”), reprising his role of Bruce Banner/the Hulk from “Marvel’s The Avengers” and Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

    “The continuation of the epic Thor franchise will be powerful and unique, and with the additions of Cate, Jeff, Tessa, Karl, and Mark to the cast we have the makings of his most dangerous and heroic adventure yet,” said Producer Kevin Feige. “The sheer, raw talent each of these actors brings to the screen can’t be quantified. Having any one of them join the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be an honor, and having all of them is incredible."

    Thor’s new cast members join returning stars Chris Hemsworth (“Rush,” “In the Heart of the Sea,” “Ghostbusters”) in the title role for the fifth time; Tom Hiddleston (“Crimson Peak,” “The Night Manager,” “Kong: Skull Island”) as Thor’s adversarial, adopted brother, Loki; Golden Globe® and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Idris Elba (“The Dark Tower,” “Luther,” “Beasts of No Nation”) as the Asgardian sentry, Heimdall; and Academy Award®-winner Sir Anthony Hopkins (“Silence of the Lambs,” “Nixon,” “Hitchcock”) again portraying Odin, Ruler of Asgard.

    Hints that Doctor Strange may appear in Ragnarok. A picture was posted from the set of Thor/Hemsworth holding a piece of paper with Doctor Strange's address on it.

    Man watching this trailer a few times just pumps me for this movie. Thor's humor with a bit of serious tone mix well together.

    I think its kind of exciting to see some of the other characters cross over in the stand alone sequals. Iron Man in Spidy. Falcon in Ant Man.

    Now if we could just get a Black Widow/Hawkeye back story movie.

    LOVE the whole vibe of this trailer. Exceeded my expectations. Love the funky 80's feel of the Ragnarok wording sweeping on the screen at the end, with the retro rainbow color scheme. This trailer excites me about the movie and the future of the MCU.

    It appears that Disney has now truly removed the shackles and let Marvel be Marvel. Though I like IM2, you can se that Disney dumbed down the movie. I guess that paid off too.

    Disney has reportedly been very hands off with Marvel and Star Wars.
