We already know that the Hulk will be appearing in the next Thor movie but now we get some hints that it might be a merged version of the Hulk. Mark Ruffalo was talking with Ain’t It Cool News and had this to say:
“It’s very subtle, but the Banner/Hulk consciousness is beginning to meld a little bit. Who decided to leave [in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’]? Was it Banner or Hulk? It’s not really in the mythology of Hulk up until that moment to be that conscious and pro-active. It’s interesting, right?”
“I think it’s really exciting where we could go with it. Now I feel like we’re kind of in No Man’s Land. I mean, the comic books have kind of broached the subject, but we’re moving away from the traditional Hulk/Banner relationship. We’re starting to mess with it a little bit,” he added.”
How cool does that sound. With a merged Hulk, I think it might be a little easier to make a Planet Hulk movie.
