Mark Ruffalo Says A New 'Hulk' Standalone Movie 'Will Never Happen'

Mark Ruffalo Says We'll

Hulk's next appearance in the Marvel cinematic universe will be in November's Thor: Ragnarok. Following the panel, Mark Ruffalo spoke with Fandango's Erik Davis, who teased a little bit of what they talked about on Twitter. "Because Universal has the rights to the standalone Hulk movie and for some reason they don't know how to play well with Marvel, and they don't want to make money".

"And with you as the new Hulk, it would be awful", added Don Cheadel.

This has always been rumored to be the source of contention; Marvel has rights to use the character, but only Universal Pictures can make a Hulk standalone film. And I don't know if it will be. There's no reason that an Incredible Hulk movie couldn't happen - especially with Ruffalo on board to make the movie - but it's clear that Universal isn't interested in working with Marvel.

Unfortunately, even today, Marvel and Universal have not yet agreed on anything regarding "Hulk".

Ruffalo first appeared as Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk, in 2012's The Avengers, when he is pulled out of isolation by Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow to join Nick Fury's (Samuel L. Jackson) team of superpowered individuals set to save the world from an alien invasion. Two years ago, he said that he has four movies coming up.

Ruffalo, also stars in the upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War", was at the event to help Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige share an exclusive trailer of the movie to attendees.

That could include different - I could show up in another character's movie; I could do "Avengers" 3 and 4; I could do a "Hulk" standalone; I could do a combination of those things.
