Mark Ruffalo Reveals Whether or Not We'll Get A Solo HULK Movie

Ruffalo explained that Universal still has the movie rights "and for some reason, they don't know how to play well with Marvel", adding, "they don't want to make money".

Check out the short interview and judge for yourself how serious the actor is being.

And given that both previous Hulk movies featured leading men who bowed out of the role immediately afterward, maybe this is all just a clever ruse to keep Ruffalo from falling prey to a jinx.

Marvel, to escape bankruptcy, sold movie rights to their characters to Universal, Sony and Fox respectively; the rights to a standalone Hulk movie is still maintained by Universal. If you agree with that sentiment, then you are probably going to enjoy Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. After all, we're certainly not exhausted of him in the role, and would even pay to see a "Science Bros" movie with just him and Tony Stark out of costume the entire time. Pictured: Ruffalo took part today in the Walt Disney Studios live action presentation at Disney's D23 EXPO 2017 in Anaheim, California on July 16.

Ruffalo was not actually the first actor in the MCU to play the Hulk, as Edward Norton first donned the green motion-capture skin in 2008's The Incredible Hulk in the early days of the MCU.

Ruffalo joined Marvel's Kevin Feige onstage to share an exclusive trailer of Avengers: Infinity War alongside other Marvel Cinematic Universe favorites. Cheadle joked that Marvel won't make a solo Hulk movie because it knows Ruffalo "would be bad", and that the 49-year-old actor is "already too old" to play the hero. Marvel doesn't even hold the rights to it. "Thor 3 is the beginning of a lot of changes for Banner and for Hulk".
