Mark Ruffalo States a Standalone Hulk Movie Will Never Happen
Oh, Hulk. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Er, rather always the co-star, never the star. We had hopes that someday Mark Ruffalo would get a solo Hulk movie in the MCU, but apparently, that's just not in the cards according to Ruffalo.
Hulk is many a people's favorite Marvel character, so it breaks a lot of hearts to have to hear that he'll never get his own movie. He will still appear as a side character in movies like Avengers and Thor: Ragnarok, but if you are looking forward to a solo movie, it won't happen. While talking to Variety, Ruffalo states why we'll never see it.
"I want to just make one thing perfectly clear today: A standalone 'Hulk' movie will never happen. Universal has the rights, and for some reason, they don't know how to play well with Marvel. And, they don't want to make money."
Dang, you Universal. WHY? I get that you may not want Marvel to get success off of a Hulk movie, but you're really only hurting yourself. Now, in the past, we've seen a couple Hulk movies, and while I didn't mind Edward Norton as Bruce Banner, and Eric Bana... well, he did a Hulk thing too... I really think it would be great to see Ruffalo star in his own film. It would especially cool to see some classic Hulk characters like Leader, Maestro, and Red Hulk. Heck, even She-Hulk would be interesting to get a look at. But I guess sometimes you just don't get what you want.
