According to Mark Ruffalo, a Hulk Movie "Will Never Happen"

Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo has said there are no chances of having another standalone movie for fictional superhero Hulk. "And, they don't want to make money". 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. Unfortunately for Hulk fans, Ruffalo had some bad news. He's wonderful in the Avengers movies, Thor: "Ragnarok, that trailer we unleashed to the world we saw the excitement when we pair Hulk with other characters, that's what we're doing right now".

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.

Visibly distraught in knowing he won't star in a Hulk standalone, Ruffalo continued, "We've talked about it, but I just don't see it in the cards... it's okay, I'm fine".

One of the most popular sayings, when someone is talking about joining a movie franchise, returning to a movie role, or making a movie that seems unlikely, is to say, "never say never". Fortunately, we'll be seeing Ruffalo in the role not only in Thor: Ragnarok, but next year's Avengers: Infinity War and 2019's untitled Avengers sequel, as well. 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. If anything, his words during the Marvel panel at D23 will serve to only sour the relationship between Marvel Studios and Universal.
