Hulk Rumors: No New Hulk Movie in the Works

By: Sean Patterson - March 8, 2013

It’s been hard for Marvel to found a stable Hulk franchise in recent years. A decade ago, Eric Bana filled Bruce Banner’s shoes in Ang Lee’s Hulk, which received mixed reviews. More recently, Edward Norton took a stab at becoming the Hulk, but abandoned the role soon after.

Mark Ruffalo signed on to star as Bruce Banner in last year’s blockbuster The Avengers, and it seems that the actor might be in for the long haul. Unfortunately, that may not mean that Ruffalo will star as the Hulk in an individual movie franchise.

Yesterday Ruffalo revealed through his Twitter feed that there are no current plans for a new Hulk movie, and that the next time he will appear as the character will be in the sequel to The Avengers.

Ruffalo later reemphasized that his statement doesn’t mean there will never be another Hulk movie:

Ruffalo’s tweets back up a comment made by Avengers director Joss Whedon in a recent interview with IGN. Whedon shot down rumors that the next Avengers movie would focus on the Hulk.
