It’s been tough going for the Hulk when he’s not in an Avengers film, but Mark Ruffalo has made everyone want a stand alone Hulk movie once again. The chances of that happening any time soon aren’t to good though. We know that there won’t be a Hulk film in Phase 3 meaning we’d have to wait for Phase 4 to see one. That’s many years away. That’s not keeping Ruffalo from speculating and hoping, though.
Who knows where these things will go, but as Bruce is able to impress his will on the Hulk – going into The Hulk and being inside the Hulk when he’s raging – The Hulk’s will is also growing and able to impress upon Bruce… It’ll be interesting to see if that ends up being what would be the next Hulk movie.
Great to hear they’re actually developing the Hulk/Banner dynamic in Age of Ultron, but Ruffalo goes on to explain that no movie plans are in the works yet. He says that it’s hard to make a film about a guy trying not to do exactly what everyone wants him to do, but that with Banner’s growing control over Hulk (and visa versa) a stand alone film could work.
Of course all this comes back to the rumor that Planet Hulk would be part of the next Avengers film. Could that be the future of the franchise?[via Empire]
