Director Taika Waititi unfortunately did not had any “Thor: Ragnarok” footage to show at last month’s Marvel’s Comic-Con panel, and understandably so, since production for the 3rd instalment of “Thor” had only begun filming in Gold Coast of Australia 1 month ago.
However, it seems that Mark Ruffalo has already finished his scenes as Bruce Banner/Hulk for Marvel’s upcoming film by officially announcing his completion via a slew of Instagram photos. We can’t help but ask – is Ruffalo’s role smaller than we thought?
Considering that a large portion of Hulk is developed using CGI, it makes sense that Ruffalo might not be on the movie set as much as his co-stars. We already know that “Thor: Ragnarok” will borrow some elements from the much-hyped Planet Hulk storyline. Rumours have also suggest that we will be seeing a whole lot more of Hulk and less of his human counterpart, Bruce Banner.
Aside from sharing a snapshot of himself staring into the eyes of Banner’s green-skinned alter ego, the Academy Award-nominated actor also took a photo of Chris Hemsworth in “full costume” as the God of Thunder without his long blonde locks, though the Aussie hunk’s costume is being blocked by a hanging shirt.
There’s also another picture of Hemsworth and Ruffalo probably sharing a bro moment in the make-up trailer.
Besides thanking the director “for the love and the laughs”, and said he “had such a great good fun time making this movie”, Ruffalo only name drops Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson (who plays Valkyrie in the film). The actor doesn’t mention Cate Blanchett or Jeff Goldblum or Karl Urban or any or the other cast members.
Fret not though, the 48-year-old A-lister revealed last month on the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast that Hulk will be sharing some screen time with Loki in “Thor: Ragnarok”. “Loki has a few thing to say about what happened last time with the Hulk,” he explained.
Production for the shoot is expected to fully wrap in late October if not the beginning of November, with reshoots already planned for early 2017. “Thor: Ragnarok” will smash its way into theatres on 3rd November 2017.
