Elmer Padilla, the Filipino artist who turns used and discarded flip flops into works of art, received a wonderful shout out from “Thor: Ragnarok” star Mark Ruffalo for his Hulk tsinelas.
Ruffalo posted the picture on his Facebook account on Saturday, Oct. 21, posing with his new miniature Marvel character that Padilla made especially for him, according to Rappler.
Marvel is bringing together Amadeus Cho, aka The Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Silk, Shang-Chi and others in what is possibly the most significant team-up of Asian-American superheroes ever assembled in print so far.
The epic gathering of our favorite Asian American heroes will be showcased via a couple of upcoming Totally Awesome Hulk issues running from #15 – #18 with the “Big Apple Showdown” storyline. Totally Awesome Hulk #15 is scheduled to be released on January 25.
