Mark Ruffalo throws cold water on standalone Hulk: It 'will never happen'

Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo has said there are no chances of having another standalone movie for fictional superhero Hulk. Pictured: Ruffalo took part today in the Walt Disney Studios live action presentation at Disney's D23 EXPO 2017 in Anaheim, California on July 16. Ruffalo spoke about the prospect of a standalone Hulk movie and his forecast was grim. "They don't want to make money".

"I wanna just make one thing perfectly clear: a standalone Hulk movie will never happen", said Ruffalo. "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.




Even if Universal and Marvel Studios could come to an agreement - Sony and Marvel managed to strike a deal and collaborate on the recent Spider-Man: Homecoming, after all - Ruffalo's probably right when he says he only has a pretty small window left where he can still pull off the character. That film was directed by Hunt for the Wilderpeople director Taika Waititi and stars Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, and Jeff Goldblum. Still, we do have Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War coming up to give us our Hulk fix... Don Cheadle chimed in to joke that a solo Hulk film starring Ruffalo "would be awful", and Ruffalo said he thinks he's "got two or three more years" before he's too old to play the character. However, Universal still holds distribution rights, and is entitled to the right of first refusal, meaning that the company can decide whether or not to distribute a film produced by Marvel.
