Mark Ruffalo Says ‘Bruce Banner’/‘Hulk’ Consciousness Is Merging In THOR: RAGNAROK

Hit the jump and check out the latest from Mark Ruffalo as he drops more hints towards the direction that he and Marvel Studios are taking with Bruce Banner and his angry alter-ego when they return ( and potentially merge personalities) in 2017's Thor: Ragnarok.



During a recent interview with Ain’t It Cool News for his latest indie drama, Infinitely Polar Bear, Mark Ruffalo further teased, or speculated about, his return as Bruce Banner, the Incredible Hulk, in Thor: Ragnarok. Though he’s yet to read the script, the actor seems to know where it’s headed.  
 
He's on the run,” assured Ruffalo of the Incredible Hulk’s whereabouts following the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron. “I think that we carry that through. It's not just a matter of taking himself to some remote place and hiding. Now he's removing himself from humanity altogether. I'm not sure where we're going to head with that, but I'm sure that's probably still very much alive within him.” The two-time Oscar nominated actor then hinted that the two personalities might merge.  “It's very subtle, but the Banner/Hulk consciousness is beginning to meld a little bit,” he teased. “Who decided to leave? Was it Banner or Hulk? It's not really in the [cinematic] mythology of Hulk up until that moment to be that conscious and pro-active. It's interesting, right?” Very!
 
Mark Ruffalo continued, “Yeah, I think it [will be fun]. I think it's really exciting where we could go with it. Now I feel like we're kind of in No Man's Land. I mean, the comic books have kind of broached the subject, but we're moving away from the traditional Hulk/Banner relationship. We're starting to mess with it a little bit.” As this direction has not been explored previously, he added, “Now we're going to see how far we can push the limits of it before people get sick of it!”
 
While Mark Ruffalo is hinting here that Bruce Banner’s and the Hulk’s consciousness are merging, the actor previously implied that we might see them split in Thor: Ragnarok. What do you think?
Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Anthony Hopkins, and Mark Ruffalo, Thor: Ragnarok is currently being scripted by Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle with Taika Waititi set to direct, and the movie scheduled to release in theaters on November 3, 2017.
