Mark Ruffalo Says We’ll See Hulk Again in AVENGERS 2, But No Plans for a Stand-Alone Movie

Rumors have been flying around that there are/aren’t plans for Marvel to make a stand-alone Hulk movie some time in the near future.  Marvel’s own Kevin Feige put two potential source materials for a Hulk film on the table last year.  Then we got news on possible plot details for not only a stand-alone Hulk film after The Avengers 2, but what may turn out to be a Hulk-centric plot for The Avengers 3.  About a month after that, writer/director Joss Whedon (The Avengers) put the kibosh to the rumors.  Now, the face behind the Hulk himself, Mark Ruffalo, has taken to the Tweets to comment on the state of Hulk.  Hit the jump to see what he had to say.

A lot of folks have been asking about the Next Hulk. The next time you see my Hulk it will be in the Avengers 2. No plans for stand alone.

I am not giving up on another stand alone HULK. But it’s not in the works right now. One never knows what the future will bring.

We know that directors are rarely straightforward with their answers, especially for projects as big as recent comic book properties (ie The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel, any Marvel movie) or films with massive fan bases (ie Star Wars and Star Trek…I’m looking at you, J.J. Abrams).  It’s also conceivable that Marvel wouldn’t necessarily fill Ruffalo in on their plans five years down the road when all that would accomplish is giving him information to accidentally let slip between now and then.  Ruffalo is contractually obligated for six Marvel films; he’s not going anywhere.  It’s also possible that Ruffalo will pop up in credits scenes and end-tags in other heroes’ stand-alone films, but that seems like an incredible waste.

I’m inclined to believe the guys at Latino Review, partly because they have a good track record and mostly because I want these particular Hulk movies to come to fruition.  It would be fantastic to finally see Hulk taken off-world where he finally gets to smash something other than puny humans/Gods.  Time will tell!
