One of the Thor: Ragnarok trailer's most memorable moments would never have existed if it weren't for a Make-a-Wish sponsee. At Comic-Con International in San Diego, star Chris Hemsworth revealed that a young boy, on set as part of a Make-a-Wish visit, came up with the "He's a friend from work!" line.
“We had a young kid, a Make-A-Wish kid on set that day,” Hemsworth told Entertainment Weekly. “In between the takes, I was talking with him, kind of going back and forth, and he goes, ‘You know, you should say, “He’s a friend from work!"' So that young man came up with it."
Here, Hemsworth is referring to the final scene in the first Thor: Ragnarok trailer, where Thor -- sporting a new hair cut and costume -- enters the colosseum of Sakaar. As the door directly across the way from him opens, he tenses, preparing to battle, only to cheer when he sees Hulk. "I know him!" he cries. "He's a friend from work!"
Opening November 3, Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/the Hulk and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
