The Avengers may collectively be Earth's Mightiest Heroes, but, thanks to a new Thor: Ragnarok television spot, we now know which member of the team is the strongest.
In a new clip Marvel Studios shared on Twitter today, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) tries to start up a spaceship that has voice activated controls. The Asgardian prince tries everything to get the ship to start -- "Thor," "God of Thunder," "Prince of Asgard," and even "Strongest Avenger" -- but nothing works. But then Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) strolls in, gives it a try and not only is he able to get things started, but the ship declares "Welcome, strongest Avenger."
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. After all, from what we've seen of the fight between he and the Hulk on Sakaar in previous teasers for the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, the Hulk is a pretty formidable opponent even for the Prince of Asgard -- especially with Thor being without his trusty hammer, Mjolnir. It probably doesn’t help that from the look Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) gave Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in a recent clip suggests that the trickster god had a little something to do with pitting his brother against the angry green guy.
Of course, this clip leads to all kinds of questions -- like why does the ship know who the strongest Avenger is and how did it get Banner's voice on file -- but even beyond the questions it's nice to see that the friendly rivalry between Thor and Hulk that we've seen since the first Avengers film continues, even all the way on Sakaar.
