Thor’s hav­ing a midlife cri­sis…” says Chris Hemsworth of the newly shorn Mar­vel god. “I’ve played this char­ac­ter five times, so I thought if we’re go­ing to make an­other Thor film, there needs to be some changes, not just to [Thor]... but to the whole Mar­vel uni­verse.” This is Thor un­like you’ve ever seen him be­fore, and we’re not just talk­ing about his trip to the bar­bers. Un­der the di­rec­tion of Taika Waititi (What We Do In The Shad­ows, Hunt For The Wilder­peo­ple), this could be the fun­ni­est, most out-there MCU movie yet.

Comic-Con footage showed the As­gar­dian be­ing sold as a gla­di­a­tor to Jeff Gold­blum’s Grand­mas­ter, then pit­ted in com­bat against his friend from work, the Hulk (Mark Ruf­falo). “He’ll be damned if he has to go back to be­ing Ban­ner,” says Ruf­falo of the green gi­ant, who’s de­vel­oped his own lan­guage since fly­ing off into space in Age Of Ul­tron. Work friends or not, don’t ex­pect Hulk – or any­one else – to go easy on Thor. As Hemsworth says with a grin, “Thor gets his ass kicked in this movie.”
