Two of Earth's mightiest Avengers will throw down later this year when Thor and the Hulk face-off in Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok.

Since fighting the Green Goliath is no easy task - even for an Asgardian god - actor Chris Hemsworth is hitting the gym to make sure that he's ready for the big task. Earlier this week, Hemsworth posted an Instagram video of himself heavy bag training ahead of his much anticipated battle with Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner.

"Gettin ready to fight the Hulk," Hemsworth wrote in the post.

While the pair have fought side by side as members of the Avengers, that hasn't stopped the superheroes from beating each other up on screen from time to time. Thor is probably hitting the gym hard to make sure that this doesn't happen again:

As for the real life God of Thunder, Hemsworth isn't the only Marvel star who's taken up martial arts. Iron Man's Robert Downey Jr. is famously a practitioner of kung-fu, while Black Widow actress Scarlett Johansson and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actor Clark Gregg train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Agent Coulson is even a black belt in the art.

One things for sure, don't mess with the Avengers, and definitely don't mess with the people who play them.

Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on November 3.
