Mark Ruffalo Teases THOR: RAGNAROK; Hopes To See The HULK Face-Off With 'Bruce Banner'

Mark Ruffalo, in a recent interview, shared his excitement for Thor: Ragnarok, but instead of divulging too much about his role in the film, he instead shared something he would really like to see depicted on-screen, that being the internal struggle between Bruce Banner & the Hulk!

"Right, don't mention puny Banner..."

A little over a week ago, JoBlo broke the story that Mark Ruffalo (Zodiac) and the Hulk would make their next appearance in Thor: Ragnarok, which will reunite him with his Avengers co-star Chris Hemsworth (In The Heart Of The Sea), who, of course, portrays the God of Thunder. Taika Waititi (What We Do In The Shadows) is directing with a script from Craig Kyle & Christopher Yost. The sure-to-be epic film is expected to kick off production in June 2016 in Hemsworth's native country of Australia.

While chatting with the Huffington Post, Ruffalo acknowledged his role in Ragnarok for the first time by simply sharing his excitement to return: "I play Dr. Bruce Banner, and occasionally I turn into a big green, mean monster...(laughs)... I am excited to keep coming back to this role. I see a lot of space for it to grow."

When further prodded about which direction he would like to see the fan-favorite character grow, Ruffalo said something very, very intriguing: "I feel like there’s a lot of cool stuff to explore still, especially the relationship between Banner and Hulk. Hopefully, we’ll see the two of them in a scene together. That would be cool!"

I think "cool" might be kind of an understatement there because quite frankly, that would be one of the more thrilling sequences to behold on screen when/if Marvel decides to make it happen. The internal struggle between Banner and the Hulk, which should be familiar to comic fans, has merely been hinted toward so far in his two Avengers appearances, but there has been enough to suggest that there's at least a little more than meets the eye going on behind-the-scenes when the two concious entities become the Hulk.

As for Ruffalo's MCU future, it sounds like he's in for the long run as he basically confirms that he'll keep coming back as long as the fans want him to: "I don’t want to overstay my welcome and I hope I never do," he said. "If I do, I’ll be the first one to bow out."
