The thunder god's reunion with the Incredible Hulk on Sakaar has been featured prominently in the marketing for Thor: Ragnarok, but with the sequel now in theaters nationwide, Marvel Studios has released a 44-second clip of the sequence.
The scene of course opens with the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), beloved gladiatorial champion, entering the Grandmaster's arena to the cheers and chants of the approving crowd. That's punctuated by the reaction of a grinning Thor (Chris Hemsworth), waving to the Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) in his luxury box and proclaiming, "Hey! We know each other! He's a friend from work!"
As Hemsworth revealed over the summer, that priceless dialogue was suggested by a child who was visiting the film's set as part of the Make-A-Wish program.
The sequence also captures the uncomfortable reaction of Tom Hiddleston's Loki, both to his brother's gleeful recognition of the Hulk and to being pointed out to the Green Goliath, who pummeled him in their last encounter.
In theaters nationwide, director Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, and Karl Urban as Skurge.
