Just like The Dark World before it, Thor: Ragnarok is arriving hot on the heels of a huge Marvel ensemble film – Captain America: Civil War, in this case – and that means there’s a palpable excitement swirling around Taika Waititi’s galactic threequel, particularly when you toss in the pent-up demand to see the God of Thunder and Hulk light up the big screen once more, both of whom were absent during Civil War.
Stoking that online delirium, images of the threequel’s Australian set have started to find their way online, as Waititi and his team go about constructing Asgard Down Under. Arguably one of the director’s ace cards, Mark Ruffalo has now got in on the fun, posting a brief set video replete with Hulk hands.

Poised to pull inspiration from the beloved Planet Hulk comic book arc, Mark Ruffalo’s raging alter-ego is set to have an instrumental role in Thor: Ragnarok and as a wise man once said, it ain’t easy being green.

Mark it, folks, the Hulk smash is confirmed. Alas, beyond that promise of Hulk and Thor going forces, there’s little-to-no story information available at this time. What we do know, however, is that Ragnarok has assembled quite the cast, including Chris Hemsworth and Ruffalo as that leading duo, along with Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, Anthony Hopkins and Star Trek Beyond alum Karl Urban.
Thor: Ragnarok will continue lensing Down Under over the next few months ahead of a theatrical release on November 3, 2017.
