Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk Will Appear In Thor: Ragnarok; Tom Hiddleston’s Loki Is Rumored


Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk will punch his way into Thor: Ragnarok, making the third in the Thor trilogy yet another example of a Marvel movie crossover. Is every solo superhero film going to feature a handful of cameos from other heroes now? Anyway, this news has fanned the flames on those persistent rumors that a “Planet Hulk” plot-line could be in the works, given that the next Thor is slated to take place on a “distant planet” that’s neither Earth nor Asgard.

Then again, perhaps we should take this news with a grain of salt, given that Joblo’s “inside sources” for this story also confirmed that Tom Hiddleston will return for Ragnarok … whereas Hiddleston told Screen Rant yesterday that he wasn’t sure whether Loki would appear in Thor 3: “I think so. I mean, I don’t know.” Later in the interview, he elaborated:

You know, I genuinely do not know. I wish there was something I could tell you. I haven’t spoken to anyone at Marvel for about two years. That universe is expanding at such a rate, so… your guess is as good as mine.

Hiddleston’s quotes here refer not only to Thor: Ragnarok but also Loki’s potential resurfacing in the Avengers films. Maybe Hiddleston’s trying to throw us all off the trail, but it doesn’t sound like Loki’s a sure bet.

What do you think? Would you like to see Hulk and/or Loki appear in the next Thor film? The Thor franchise thus far does seem like it needs, uh, a little help from some of its other heroes …
