There have been rumours about Thor: Ragnarok adapting Planet Hulk for some time, and while that may ultimately boil down to little more than the Jade Giant fighting in a gladiatorial arena, we now know for sure that it’s actually happening. This was confirmed earlier today when Marvel revealed the hero’s armour and weapons at their booth at Comic-Con in San Diego.
It’s fair to say that these props look more than a little plastic, but bear in mind that The Hulk is a fully CGI character, so these no doubt will be appearing in Thor: Ragnarok, too. It’s previously been said that a de-powered Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is pitted against The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) at the behest of The Grandmaster in the movie, and if what we see above is any indication, it’s going to be incredibly epic.

Marvel Studios is holding a panel in Hall H later today, and while it was initially thought that only Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would be highlighted, the unveiling of these props hopefully means that some sort of Thor: Ragnarok sneak peek will also be included (a piece of concept art showing The Hulk suited up in this armour wouldn’t go amiss).
Also starring Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson and Karl Urban, Thor: Ragnarok is set to be released on November 3rd, 2017.
