Mark Ruffalo Dismisses Talk Of A PLANET HULK Movie; "You Need More Banner"

Echoing the thoughts of Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, Avengers: Age of Ultron star Mark Ruffalo expresses interest in Planet Hulk, but reiterates that one is not in the works and that it could be too early for a movie which would feature little to no Bruce Banner.

A Planet Hulk movie has been rumoured again and again, but the denials keep on coming, and if the plan is to still give the Green Goliath his own solo outing after his successful reintroduction in 2012's The Avengers, it won't take place in outer space! Talking to MTV News, Mark Ruffalo shared his thoughts on the beloved comic book story, before adding, "I don’t think ['Planet Hulk'] is the way to go yet. I think you need more Banner. The whole thing is just him as Hulk, on a planet, fighting other gladiators." It's a fair point, but could the story not be changed to feature a lot more of the Hulk's human alter ego? We'll have to wait and see, and it wouldn't be at all surprising if a Hulk movie is among those announced at Marvel's panel during next month's San Diego Comic Con.

Why would Marvel ever do Planet Hulk, anyway?

I get that it's an awesome concept, and apparently well executed (I haven't read it yet) but as an entry into Marvel Studios' cinematic universe? Not gonna happen.

What the hell is so difficult? They couldn't do flashbacks or something of Banner on Earth to balance out the Hulk some?

Never cared for Planet Hulk.

You have to have banner involved in some way shape or form, all hulk wouldn't work

Maybe he's using Misdirection....

I agree, sure, seeing Hulk destroy stuff is cool but seeing Banner cope with the duality of the Hulk is the most interesting in my eyes.

I feel like(at this time) this Hulk doesn't work. We'd need a world-hated Hulk to do this.

Exactly! Banner is most of what makes Hulk interesting, can't go without him. Never really cared for Planet Hulk either, didn't think it was that great.

Really don't see Marvel going down this route yet, but him at least being aware of it maybe means there have been discussions about it, potentially. Much prefer another Hulk film with the Leader and Abomination return. Planet Hulk could come, but hopefully not anytime soon.

That's good. Also, if the next Hulk movie is offically announced at SDCC... BEST EDITION OF THE COMIC-CON EVER!!! Last thing, for those who want a Planet Hulk movie, watch the video below:
