Thor: Ragnarok isn’t going to be like any previous Thor movie. That much was clear when the Thor: Ragnarok trailer was set to a rollicking synth soundtrack and Thor gave a scream of joy when he saw Hulk burst out of the arena.
“I know him! He’s a friend from work!” Thor shouts at the crowd and Jeff Goldblum‘s perplexed Grandmaster. It was the best line in the trailer — and I’d say it’s up there with Marvel’s greatest lines — and Chris Hemsworth says it wasn’t even in the script. That’s in line with the news that much of Thor: Ragnarok was improvised, but there’s more of a touching story behind the “friend from work” line than you’d think.
