Mark Ruffalo Reveals 'A Standalone Hulk Movie Will Never Happen'

The two will have a face-off in the film

"I wanna just make one thing perfectly clear today", Ruffalo told Variety on the press line for the D23 Expo in California, "a standalone Hulk movie will never happen". Cheadle, however, was quick to point out that if the corporations wanted to work something out, they could find a way, so it must be Ruffalo that they have an issue with. Universal owns the rights to Hulk movies and they share him with Marvel for various team-ups like The Avengers. He will make a full appearance in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War.

Ruffalo was not actually the first actor in the MCU to play the Hulk, as Edward Norton first donned the green motion-capture skin in 2008's The Incredible Hulk in the early days of the MCU. And clearly they don't like money.

Responding to the issue, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement late Saturday that the Senate will defer consideration of the health care bill.

When pressed further about the potential of a solo Hulk film, Ruffalo said, "We talked about it, but I just don't see it in the cards". Still, we do have Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War coming up to give us our Hulk fix... That was technically the second movie in the new Marvel Cinematic Universe but the rights still remained with Universal despite this. Cheadle joked that Marvel won't make a solo Hulk movie because it knows Ruffalo "would be bad", and that the 49-year-old actor is "already too old" to play the hero.

The reason, however, has nothing to do with the character's popularity, but instead lies with the fact that a different studio now owns the rights to the character and has already made two Hulk movies: 2003's Ang Lee-directed "Hulk", starring Eric Bana, and 2008's "The Incredible Hulk", starring Edward Norton.
