After Avengers: Age of Ultron saw Bruce Banner, a.k.a. The Hulk, disappear, the speculation began on where he would show up next. Originally he was meant to appear in Captain America: Civil War, but Mark Ruffalo later revealed that he had been cut from the script. Then last week, it was reported that Hulk will appear in Thor: Ragnarok, which will see the God of Thunder dealing with the "Norse Apocalypse." At first this was considered to just be a rumor, but now it’s looking likelier that an Asgardian adventure is in Bruce’s future.

Deadline is reporting that Marvel Studios is nearing a deal to bring Ruffalo into the third Thor installment. Ever since 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, the character has been confined to the Avengers films, so appearing in Thor: Ragnarok gives him the chance to shine in a less crowded environment, even if he is sharing screen time with his fellow Avenger. Still, the question remains: how exactly does Hulk fit into Thor: Ragnarok? We have a few guesses.

Asgardian Technology Could Be The Cure For The Hulk
Asgardian Technology Could Be The Cure For The Hulk
Within the MCU, Bruce Banner has been living with his "condition" for about a decade. He tried everything to rid himself of his inner beast, but by The Avengers, he had made peace with the fact that he’ll never be able to escape his "curse." However, just because Earth science can’t help him doesn’t mean Asgardian science can’t take a stab. If Bruce somehow ends up on Asgard, maybe he’ll seek assistance from Thor’s people in curing him of the Hulk. Their tech probably wouldn’t be able to permanently rid Bruce of the Green Goliath (after all, we still need him to raise hell in the Avengers: Infinity War movies), but maybe they can help ease his burden, such as making it so he can trigger the transformations at will rather then whenever he’s angry. Alternatively, maybe the Asgardians can initiate some kind of change in Bruce’s brain so that he can retain his intelligence in Hulk form.
