So when the first trailer for Thor Ragnarok came out, it was clear that the style of the movie was going to be much different than the original and its sequel The Dark World. Thor was going to be teaming up with Hulk, Asgard had fallen, Mjolnir was destroyed, and much more.
But at the end of the trailer, a now iconic line was spoken. When Thor sees Hulk in the gladiator pit of Sakaar, he cries out, “YES!!! We know each other! He’s a friend from work!”
Now, on the surface, this may seem like classic Marvel humor. But in fact, that’s not the case. As Chris Hemsworth reveals, it was a fan that thought of that line.
“We had a young kid, a Make-A-Wish kid on set that day,” Hemsworth told Entertainment Weekly. “In between the takes, I was talking with him, kind of going back and forth, and he goes, ‘You know, you should say, “He’s a friend from work!”‘ So that young man came up with it.”
And people think Marvel doesn’t listen to their fanbase, clearly not so! We thank that young man for what will go down in Marvel history as one of the greatest lines in the MCU. Thor Ragnarok arrives November 3rd.
