THOR 3’s Jeff Goldblum and Mark Ruffalo Explain the Meaning of RAGNAROK

THOR 3’s Jeff Goldblum and Mark Ruffalo Explain the Meaning of RAGNAROK

Next month, Thor: Ragnarok will bring Marvel’s God of Thunder back into theaters alongside his “friend from work” for the third and final film of the Thor trilogy. Within Norse mythology, the word Ragnarok represents the death of the old gods in a cataclysmic series of battles and the rebirth of the world. Although we think Ragnarok would also be an awesome title for an Asgardian Death Metal band, although there are at least two real world bands already using that name. Recently, Marvel asked fans to define Ragnarok, and filmed Thor: Ragnarok stars Jeff Goldblum and Mark Ruffalo reading the best answers.

We first saw this very amusing riff on Ragnarok’s meaning over at io9 shortly after the world premiere of Thor: Ragnarok. Goldblum tended to read the funniest definitions of Ragnarok, but Ruffalo definitely had a few memorable line deliveries as well.

Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi also got in on the fun.
