Mark Ruffalo Likens The 'Banner/Thor Dynamic In THOR: RAGNAROK To MIDNIGHT RUN

In a recent interview with Empire, Mark Ruffalo spoke about his role as Hulk/Bruce Banner in Thor: Ragnarok. The actor compares the relationship of Banner and the God of Thunder to that of Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin in '80s buddy movie, Midnight Run. Check it out...

In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Mark Ruffalo name-checked hilarious '80s flick Midnight Run when desribing the dynmamic between his Bruce Banner and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) as they zip around the Nine Realms. “There’s a little bit of Midnight Run, with [Charles] Grodin and [Robert] De Niro,” said Ruffalo. "I feel like that’s kind of where we’re heading with this relationship between Thor and Banner.” Sounds like we can expect a bit of squabbling! Ruffalo was then asked to elaborate on his earlier revelation that Thor: Ragnarok would be a road movie. “It is a universal road movie – that’s where we’re heading,” he explained. “It’s not where you'd think it will be, so it’s not your classic road movie but it has that structure, I think."

Ruffalo then went on to talk about what we could expect from the highly anticipated team-up between Thor and Hulk. "I love Chris [Hemsworth], and it’s not an accident that we’ve been put together because we have a good time together and we goof off. The fact that we’re moving towards the smart-comedic bent plays into our relationship.” Ruffalo was then asked if he was looking forward to visiting Asgard, Thor's home world. “[Am I looking forward to that?] Hells, yeah,” replied Ruffalo excitingly. What do you think about Ruffalo's comments? Are you excited to see Thor: Ragnarok explore the Nine Realms?
