(Marvel Cinematic Universe Wiki) Thor Ragnarok hints at Hulk and Thor's epic battle

Not too long after the teaser trailer for "Thor Ragnarok" was released last week, most fan theories and spoilers are highlighting Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) battle in the grand arena. 

In the latter part of the two-minute trailer, Thor gets into the arena and about to battle his old friend Hulk. As expected, the scene apparently left a bunch of cliffhangers with most questions being asked are pointed to this green savage superhero being on the opposing side against Thor. 

As seen in most reactions, a battle between these two former Avengers who once had one goal in fighting evil forces seems to be the least expected one. Though Thor was quick to identify his opponent in one glance, it goes the other way around for Hulk.

Of course, the real reason as to how Hulk and Thor ended in a conflict-ridden situation will not be fully revealed until the movie's release in November. However, some spoilers are suggesting Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) as the most fit villain behind this fight.

Setting aside the little downside, the hope to see Thor and Hulk team up against the main villain Hela the Goddes of Death (Cate Blanchett) is still there.

Moreover, a few theories are as well saying that though Hulk and Thor may be walking on a different path as shown in the movie trailer, a twist may come into view in the latter that would reunite the two pals in one goal, to defeat the enemy and save Asgard.

"Thor Ragnarok" Official Synopsis

Movieweb quoted, "In Marvel Studios' Thor Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok, the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization, at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiator contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger, the Incredible Hulk!"

While the details about the anticipated battle in "Thor Ragnarok" remain fuzzy and the spoilers are waiting on a thin line until the movie premieres this November 3, watch out if another trailer will be released soon and stay tuned to get the latest updates about the movie on Stars Post.
