Marvel was originally against the idea, but is now “entertaining the idea” of a Hulk standalone flick, says Bruce Banner himself.
Do you want another film based on the green guy whom you don’t want to get angry? It seems we might get another Hulk film at some point in the future. Actor Mark Ruffalo, who played Bruce Banner in 2012’s The Avengers, confirmed this bit of news in a chat with DigitalSpy. Ruffalo states that while Marvel was originally against the idea of a standalone Hulk film, the studio is now considering it.
I think – for the first time – [Marvel] is entertaining the idea of it…When we did The Avengers, it was basically ‘No!’ And now I think there’s some consideration for it.
However, don’t go jumping for joy yet, Hulk fans. Ruffalo himself admitted that while Marvel might be entertaining the idea, it’s far from being a done deal. “But there’s still nothing definitive, not even a skeletal version of what it would be. I look forward to going down that road, if we could crack that nut,” Ruffalo clarifies.
With how Ruffalo portrayed the green giant in The Avengers, I’d be perfectly fine to see him in his own Marvel film — provided the story is good enough, of course. And it’s not like Marvel can mess up the Hulk movie franchises with the way the first two panned out.
Would you want to see yet another Hulk standalone film? What do you hope they change in this one if this ever happens?
