Mark Ruffalo Weighs In On HULK Prospects

Tons of rumors are flying fast and free about the future of the Hulk after a scene stealing performance from Mark Ruffalo in Joss Whedon's Avengers. Tonight the actor took to Twitter to give his take on the current prospects for Hulk.

This certainly doesn't exactly kill a potential Planet Hulk adaptation after The Avengers 2 but it definitely puts the possibility further in doubt. After voicing those thoughts above, Ruffalo went on to retweet fans in favor of a solo Hulk film AND those against it. Recently, Joss Whedon called Planet Hulk rumors nonsense making a solo Hulk venture even more unlikely. He also recently talked about the challenges inherent with a Hulk film. Any writer worth his salt loves to tackle a challenge and I bet Whedon would take this one on in a heartbeat but the question here is whether Planet Hulk is the direction currently being discussed.

In tracking Marvel film news over the years, the only thing certain is that they're not afraid to explore all the possible angles. Scripts for obscure properties like The Inhumans and The Runaways have been commissioned, an indication that any and all avenues are being considered for potential film franchises. Obviously, most fans would love to see more Hulk but it's not going to be before Avengers 2 and who knows where things will head (and who will be left alive) after Mr. Whedon's personal affair with Earth's Mightiest.

Makes sense.
jessepostal - 3/6/2013, 7:11 PM
Id like to see him have a shot at a full movie to see what he brings with out the rest of the band
xBlaze96x - 3/6/2013, 7:11 PM
I can't wait to see more ass kicking from Hulk!
marvel72 - 3/6/2013, 7:25 PM
fingers crossed for another solo hulk in phase 3,marvel studios should of done another hulk movie after he proved to be so popular after the avengers.

if he keeps that popularity after the avengers sequel then marvel studios would be idiots not moving forward with another hulk movie.
PsyGuy - 3/6/2013, 7:30 PM
I think that even though his Hulk was amazing, they should give another hero a chance... Hulk's had 2!
DrDoom - 3/6/2013, 7:33 PM
Indestrucible Hulk in Phase Three with Leader, Abomination and Radioactive Man as villains. Easy.
ThePowerCosmic - 3/6/2013, 7:33 PM
Id rather just leave him as the star of the Avengers sequels. He really shines in an group!
Nick56 - 3/6/2013, 7:34 PM
would have much rather seen another hulk movie over another crappy thor movie
RPD - 3/6/2013, 7:35 PM
Hulk was great in The Avengers but I just don't see him as carrying a solo movie that well...
FirstAvenger - 3/6/2013, 7:36 PM
Well okay then.
ButthurtKurvos - 3/6/2013, 7:41 PM
Ruffalo was a good Hulk as was Norton but I feel that Bana's Hulk is underrated. It wasn't the best CBM but it was still entertaining. I just wish that Ang Lee would have done a follow up to his movie. I was eager to see what his sequel would have been like. I am for a Ruffalo solo movie nonetheless.
mctrinket - 3/6/2013, 7:42 PM
Hulk smash?
InFamouslyCool - 3/6/2013, 7:42 PM
I pray they dont make another hulk movie.
Grayson7954 - 3/6/2013, 7:45 PM
hes signed on for a 6 picture deal with Marvel, expect to see him more than just in Avengers 2 people
marvel72 - 3/6/2013, 7:46 PM

Sad that for such a great character, Marvel seems clueless on what to do with him. Let G. del Toro do the TV show already!
OdinsBeard - 3/6/2013, 8:01 PM
I don't understand why you can't just insert more Banner into the planet hulk story line. I don't want them to do it becuz that most likely means no ultron in future avenger movies but as a huge fan of planet hulk and wwh I would love for them to have more Banner in both stories. Think Avatar, a human on an alien world who turns into this other creature. More Banner, thus more Ruffallo only makes planet hulk better.
Hulk2008 - 3/6/2013, 8:02 PM
I loved Norton as Banner. He was great and up until the Avengers he was my favorite, but let's face it..hands down Ruffalo stole the show as Banner/Hulk.

Mark Ruffalo is the best Banner / Hulk since Ferrigno/Bixby.

Norton is second best.

Mark Ruffalo is the Hulk!!! I cannot wait for Avengers 2 because of Ruffalo.

@EyeGore- I agree that they should make a Hulk tv show.

Incredible Hulk 2 for Phase 3

Just love the Hulk. my all time favorite comic book super hero!!
CloserPleasures - 3/6/2013, 8:04 PM
love you hulk
deanwilkins - 3/6/2013, 8:07 PM
I want more Hulk and especially a feature film done right.
niceguyeddie - 3/6/2013, 8:07 PM
I hate how people take the word of those involved in the films as debunking. Like Cotilliard didn't swear up and down that she wasn't Thalia damn well till after the movie's release.
niceguyeddie - 3/6/2013, 8:08 PM
That being said I always take these reports with a healthy grain of salt.
superbigguy32 - 3/6/2013, 8:08 PM
It's because The Incredible Hulk didn't do so well at the box office. If we keep complaining we might get one.
ATrueHero1987 - 3/6/2013, 8:10 PM
@AcidicHeart I like that. Instead of it being called The Incredible Hulk 2, it should be called Indestructible Hulk! I also agree with the villain choice except Radioactive Man.
GodzillaKart - 3/6/2013, 8:10 PM
I would love a Hulk solo film now that they have finally got the character right....but no need for Planet Hulk.
ATrueHero1987 - 3/6/2013, 8:13 PM
In fact, the sequel could go in the direction that The Indestructible Hulk is going. Show that not only Hulk can be a great asset but Banner himself.
sephiroth211 - 3/6/2013, 8:15 PM
Indeed @Nomis.
Inhuman - 3/6/2013, 8:17 PM
If they use the Marvel NOW Indestructible Hulk storyline and have Banner work for SHIELD and SHIELD uses the Hulk on missions, could be a cool sequel. Either that or the Planet Hulk storyline would be cool
thewonderer - 3/6/2013, 8:22 PM
Perfect example of Marvel ranking money over comic potential. Hulk may have grossed the less but he was clearly the highlight of the avengers which is the 3rd highest grossing film of all time. Why marvel doesn't capitalize on this is beyond me.
NoJobBOB - 3/6/2013, 8:22 PM
I don't understand how he's down for 6 films and only announced the 2 he's in which are Avengers 1 and 2.

I WANT MORE BRUCE BANNER
TerminalVoyd - 3/6/2013, 8:23 PM
Inhumans is an interesting way to go, but not nearly as much fun without access to the Fantastic Four. And Runaways has been on the back burner for a few years now. When Marvel began talking to Whedon, a lot of people assumed it would be for Runaways, but luckily it turned out to be Avengers not long after.
ahhmynuts - 3/6/2013, 8:33 PM
hulk movie isnt needed! whats left to tell??
ahhmynuts - 3/6/2013, 8:38 PM
only way hulk gets his own movie is if they introduce something in avengers 2 that would warrant a solo movie but right now its not needed.
novaprime - 3/6/2013, 8:42 PM
I Would Love To See Another Hulk Film, Maby a Reboot!!!
GodzillaKart - 3/6/2013, 8:46 PM
@novaprime: A reboot?!?! They just finally got him right! Time to let that character play for a while!
MightyZeus - 3/6/2013, 8:59 PM
I'd see another stand alone hulk film.
It has the potential after watching the avengers.
Pheezmatic - 3/6/2013, 9:06 PM
@gusto totally...brandon routh...best hulk..ever
typicalfanboy - 3/6/2013, 9:12 PM
i think avengers proved that hulk works best as a supporting character in the movies. all of his major storylines in teh comics are as the hulk, not banner, so mark will not be utilized if they do planet hulk or world war hulk.
