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 BMI formula).

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 scale.

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 the results.

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.

Not as strong as World Breaker Hulk.

So the wolf weighs 12,897.4 lbs. That about the same as an US Army douce and a half without the winch. Hulk should be able to bowl with that.

Good math by the way!

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.

true but again there is a difference between dead weight an muscle weight , most strongmen can easily overhead press 400lbs but when you ask them to wrestle a 400lbs Gorilla they will fail.

the " physics " of comic book heroes lifting things = so fundamentally flawed that there is no point doing any " analysis "

hey lift - whaty the writer wants them to - and fail - when the writer wants them to

there is no room for logic or science

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 bathroom.

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!!
