  • Hulk vs Thor

As Feige recently told Uproxx during a press junket for Thor: Ragnarok, Goldblum was nearly cast in Captain America: The First Avenger.

"That's exactly what happened", Feige confirmed during the press conference.

The recent revelation by actor Mark Ruffalo that Thor: Ragnarok is the first part of a three-movie arc for the Hulk raises immediate questions about what kind of evolution fans should expect in the character. But then he continued with a story about a conversation he and MCU mastermind Kevin Feige had over a year ago, while they were discussing Hulk's role in the new Thor movie. I mean, I'll tell you, I think we spoke to him or offered him a role in Captain America: The First Avenger.

Feige was referring to Senator Brandt, the character who took notice of Steve's marketing potential and convinced him to join the USO tour. And he either wasn't available or wasn't interested or whatever. Instead of Goldblum, Marvel got Michael Brandon to play the role, according to Screen Rant.

We all know that Thor: Ragnarok is going to open huge at the box office, but how huge exactly?

In the newest Thor film, Goldblum's Grandmaster rules the planet of Sakaar and spends his free time watching warriors battle one another to the death, Roman gladiator-style, in his grand coliseum. Suffice to say, the actor goes full Goldblum in the upcoming film, and it's sure to be an absolute delight.

While Thor is a little befuddled by the ship not choosing him as the strongest Avenger it shouldn't really come as too much of a surprise to the God of Thunder.

Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok is set to open in theaters on November 3.

"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 threat, the ruthless Hela.
