There has been a lot of talk about a new Incredible Hulk movie with rumors swirling about a potential Planet Hulk movie. Of course the Planet Hulk rumor seems to be just that…a rumor. Mark Ruffalo, who played Bruce Banner in the awesome Avengers movie, tweeted a couple statements about a Hulk movie and if one is going to happen any time soon.
“A lot of folks have been asking about the Next Hulk. The next time you see my Hulk it will be in the Avengers2. 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.”
So it looks like the earliest we are going to get a new stand alone Hulk movie is 2016. I can wait.
Joss Whedon, the Avengers director, has recently stated the following:
“Hulk is a tricky son of a *****. He’s the Claudio of superheroes. Because the problem is it’s a very popular character, but it’s not a superhero. Half of it’s a superhero, half of it’s a werewolf. And you can’t structure it like a superhero movie, you can’t light it like a superhero movie. How do you develop that? It would be extremely difficult. The one thing you would have in your favor would be Mark Ruffalo. But right now I don’t know if they have plans to do that or not, because he works so well as part of a greater whole, but by himself, it’s tough. I don’t envy the guys who went before.”
