(Warning - the following contains plot speculation relating to the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. It's largely in jest, but there's always the possibility that truth will be lying underneath the surface. Proceed with caution and all that...)
Now, for all that he seems like a genuinely sweet and mild-mannered dude, Chris Hemsworth probably isn't someone you'd want to get into a fist fight with. Between him being built like the proverbial poop-themed outhouse and having received fight training from some of the movie industry's best and brightest, there's a pretty good chance that he could – if need be – beat the living snot out of any of us.
That is, unless The Hulk is reading this, seeing as...
The Hulk Totally Kicked Thor's Ass in 'The Avengers'
The two's battle on the helicarrier may have been edged by Thor, but he didn't carry the Avengers heavyweight belt out of the movie, after Hulk took him out in one punch later on – as was made legendary by the resulting GIF (above).
With Thor: Ragnarok on the horizon, though, and Chris Hemsworth set to share the villainy-battling duties with Mark 'The Hulk' Ruffalo, the question of just what'll happen if the two duke it out once more has very much been re-opened.
What's more, it seems as though...
Chris Hemsworth Is Very Determined to See Thor Kick the Hulk's Ass This Time Out
As Hemsworth recently told the New York Daily News:
"I'd like to think I let him win last time, but because this movie is called 'Thor,' I have to win this time."
Which, thinking about it, is probably fair – even if it's not necessarily what we'll see happen.
Perhaps even more intriguingly, though:
Hemsworth Also Teased a 'Butch and Sundance' Kind of Story
Or, at least, revealed that he was hoping to see the same kind of dialog-heavy buddy-adventure that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid still personifies to this day:
"I hope it's a Butch Cassidy sort of story...That would be fun. I love Mark. I think those two characters haven't spent a whole lot of time talking to each other on screen (so far in the Marvel movies) , so it's something new, I think it would bring something different out of the characters."
After all, Hemsworth pointed out, there's one key advantage to Bruce Banner taking the lead, rather than his green alter-ego:
"It's hard to have a conversation with the Hulk."
Which is a) very much true, and b) a seriously sensible approach to making a Hulk-featuring Thor: Ragnarok.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go and re-watch Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, because it is awesome.
What do you think, though?
