In the scene Thor Ragnarok the Hulk picked up a giant wolf from the ground followed with some sort of suplex. while watching the scene I wondered how
much such a beast would have weighed in real life , so decided to calculate it's weight.
The first thing I did was to try and measure the body mass index of a typical wolf , So I went online and found this BMI calculator that measured the
BMI of dogs and then selected the dog breeds that most represents a Wolf like German Shepard & Alaskan Malamute (all those breeds also used the same
When you use the height and weight for a healthy male Wolf (60cm and 75kg) and apply it the calculator & formula it accurately confirms the BMI to be
correct. although the record for the largest wolf ever discovered weighed 104kg and 80cm at shoulder length , that would give it a BMI of 163 on this
The next thing I did was to scale up the height and weight to represent the giant wolf in the scene. On the marvel fandom page it's claimed that the
Fenris wolf stood 15ft (4.5m) tall however when you observe the scene in the movie the wolf seem to be more like 17-20ft (5-6m) tall.
So with all the information I finally worked out the weight of the Fenris wolf on a BMI scale of 100 (average) and 163 (above average) and here are
Average BMI of 100 at 5m tall = 2500kg
Above average BMI of 163 at 5m tall = 4080kg
Average BMI of 100 at 6m tall = 3600kg
Above average BMI of 163 at 6m tall = 5850kg
So it seems that the giant wolf in the movie basically weighed about 6 Tons at most , not bad.

Who cares about how strong Hulk was?
If Ant-Man shrank, flew into the Th-anus, and then expanded, could he explode Thanos and end everything right there? That's what real comics geeks
have been asking.
Except this wouldn’t happen, thanos isn’t just strong skin and completely normal insides, logic would dictate that all his cells are ultra strong.
Drax tried something similar in GotG, tried to jump into that monster to cut through its thick skin from the inside, problem is the skin is still
strong regardless of what side you cut it from. youtu.be...
So basicly ant man would try to expand and would be forced into the shape of thanos’s intestines, killing him instantly as thanos runs to the
Ummm, did you watch the video? That is more or less the conclusion they drew. Ant-Man would not have enough expansive force to do it, and that was
just doing the math based on normal human insides, so if Ant-Man couldn't pull the trick on a regular person ... well, what do you think he's doing to
Titan colon? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!
