The MARVEL Role JEFF GOLDBLUM Didn't Take

Hulk vs Thor

In an interview with UPROXX, Feige was asked if there were any actors that he had been unable to land. 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. "Well, if you'd asked me that a year ago, I would have had a very specific answer", Feige said.

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. That part is, admittedly, quite a small one, and could have been somewhat of a waste of Goldblum's unique personality that fans will see in full effect in Thor: Ragnarok. And he either wasn't available or wasn't interested or whatever. "And thank goodness, because that would have just been a small thing and instead we got to wait for the Grandmaster, which is about as unbelievable as a Jeff Goldblum 'Goldblum-iness" could be". /Film's Peter Sciretta will have his own one-on-one interview with Feige here on the site closer to the film's release, but in the meantime, I've collected some of the uber-producer's comments from other interviews in which he talks about the connective tissue of easter eggs, Captain Marvel's whereabouts, Feige's plans for Marvel Studios Phase Four, and much more.

So it sounds like Goldblum was approached for the role of Senator Brandt in Captain America: The First Avenger (unless I'm forgetting another senator in that movie), who was portrayed by Michael Brandon.

"And so that's my standalone Hulk movie", Ruffalo concluded. Suffice to say, the actor goes full Goldblum in the upcoming film, and it's sure to be an absolute delight. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger-the Incredible Hulk. More major stars (Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, and Goldblum) will appear in Marvel's next blockbuster, Thor: Ragnarok.
