Actor Mark Ruffalo, who will reprise his role as Bruce Banner aka the incredible Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok, has dished some details about his character in the movie. The Hulk was last seen running away and going off the grid in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Ruffalo in an interview with Ain't It Cool News said: "He's on the run. I think that we carry that through. It's not just a matter of taking himself to some remote place and hiding. Now he's removing himself from humanity altogether. I'm not sure where we're going to head with that, but I'm sure that's probably still very much alive within him."

The 48-year-old actor teased that the Banner and Hulk consciousness is beginning to meld. Ruffalo said: "It's very subtle, but the Banner/Hulk consciousness is beginning to meld a little bit. Who decided to leave? Was it Banner or Hulk? It's not really in the [cinematic] mythology of Hulk up until that moment to be that conscious and pro-active. It's interesting, right?"

The actor went on: "Yeah, I think it [will be fun]. I think it's really exciting where we could go with it. Now I feel like we're kind of in No Man's Land. I mean, the comic books have kind of broached the subject, but we're moving away from the traditional Hulk/Banner relationship. We're starting to mess with it a little bit. Now we're going to see how far we can push the limits of it before people get sick of it!"

Thor 3 will star Chris Hemsworth as Thor, the God of Thunder; Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Ray Stevenson as Volstagg and Anthony Hopkins as Odin. The movie is currently being scripted by Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle with Taika Waititi set to direct it. The movie is scheduled to release on 3 November 2017.
