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

New Thor Ragnarok Poster Debuts at D23

Ruffalo was at the expo with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, as well as some Marvel Cinematic Universe favorites, to showcase the trailer for "Avengers: Infinity War". "And, they don't want to make money", Ruffalo said. Following the panel, Mark Ruffalo spoke with Fandango's Erik Davis, who teased a little bit of what they talked about on Twitter.

Universal owned the rights to The Hulk in a licensing agreement with Marvel that predated Marvel making their own production company to make their own movies.

So come on, Universal and Marvel.

Ruffalo told Variety that despite fan demands for a Hulk movie, he doesn't "see it in the cards". "Now that I don't think that's insurmountable, by the way, but I don't know where it's going from here for me", he said.

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.

Marvel, to escape bankruptcy, sold movie rights to their characters to Universal, Sony and Fox respectively; the rights to a standalone Hulk movie is still maintained by Universal. "I think it's four now, but that could always go further".

Ruffalo stated, "I just want to make one thing perfectly clear". 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.
