Who doesn’t love a good pairing? Heck, the entirety of Thor: Ragnarok is a fun play on unlikely pairing. Seeing Hulk and Thor buzz around the galaxy together, away from all the rest of the Avengers? Yes, please.

But while that’s all good fun, the real fun is set to come in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. In that film, we’ll be seeing the all 80,000 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe unite on the big screen for the first time, so there was bound to be some interesting pairings.

According to Ruffalo, one such pairing is that between Hulk and Rocket Raccoon of Guardians of the Galaxy fame.

“All of the universes coming together is just a sight gag within itself. It’s a very funny relationship that [Rocket and Hulk] have: First of all, it’s the biggest superhero and the smallest. Just keeping them in a frame together is a feat and hilarious in itself.”

Plus, with his experience with Groot, Rocket is someone who has a lot of experience with working with lumbering brutes. One has to wonder if this is a relationship that will get under the skin of Teen Groot. Heck, maybe Hulk is someone Teen Groot will actually look up to by the end of the film?

What do you hope to see from the Hulk and Rocket pairing? Let us know down below!
