It will never happen: Mark Ruffalo on Hulk standalone film

You know who wouldn't like the Hulk when he's angry?

Following Marvel's live-action panel at D23, Disney's biennial convention, Mark Ruffalo told Variety that while he very much wanted a stand-alone movie for Hulk, due to Universal "not playing nicely" it wasn't going to happen. The reason is that apparently Universal still holds some of the Hulk solo movie rights, and unlike Sony with Spider-Man, they're not interested in making a deal. But I feel like I have two or three years before I'm too old to play the Hulk.

Chris Hemsworth will return as the God of Thunder in Thor: Ragnarok, which also stars Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.

Fellow Marvel actor Don Cheadle, who plays James Rhodes/War Machine/Iron Patriot in Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Captain America: Civil War, stood beside Ruffalo and helped cushion the blow of his statements.

Are you sorry there won't be another standalone Hulk adventure, or just happy we get to keep Ruffalo around in other Marvel movies? But hey, Robert Downey Jr. will always be older! And clearly they don't like money.

"I just want to make one thing perfectly clear today: a standalone Hulk movie will never happen".

It's hard to say if it will actually happen, but at least we still have the character's appearances in Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War and the Untitled Avengers Sequel to look forward to.
