Hulk smasH bro­mance!


In the im­mor­tal words of Tony Stark, we’ve got a Hulk. Yes, the third Thor movie is about to re­ceive an in­jec­tion of mean, green, gamma ray-rid­dled charisma. Mark Ruf­falo has signed to play Bruce Ban­ner – and his shirt-shred­ding, scene-steal­ing al­ter ego – along­side Chris Hemsworth’s storm-wield­ing Norse god, bring­ing a clas­sic Mar­vel team-up vibe to the next slice of As­gar­dian ad­ven­ture.

So ex­pect a light touch among all the Vik­ing apoca­lypse. Film­ing be­gins in Aus­tralia next sum­mer.

And as the ti­tle tells us Evan­ge­line Lilly will step up to share top billing as Hank Pym’s part­ner-in-shrink­age Hope Van Dyne, fi­nally win­ning a chance to wear the pro­to­type Wasp suit teased in the fi­nal mo­ments of the first film. What chance a sub-atomic dance
