Mark Ruffalo Wishes To Make A Stand-alone Marvel Film
Mark Ruffalo wants to make a stand-alone Marvel film on the Incredible Hulk. The actor first plays Bruce Banner’s alter ego in 2012’s The Avengers. He tells Variety that he loves to see his character follow in the footsteps of Black Widow, Loki or Hawkeye.
Ruffalo says that there is an idea that he thinks can be interesting. He says that they never really followed Hulk into his life. Hulk is always kind of off on the side. He is like the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern of the Avengers.
It will be interesting to fill in all the blanks about what happens to Hulk in between all these movies.
In February, Ruffalo tells The Independent that discussions about a stand-alone film have taken place. But the studio still doesn’t have the rights to it. So it’s not happening in earnest. But the director has pitched a couple of different ideas that he thinks can be interesting.
Why Did Kevin Feige Quit The Franchise?
The 52-year-old actor also reveals that in 2012, Marvel boss Kevin Feige almost quit the franchise over a lack of gender representation.
Will “Ike Perlmutter” Agree To Feige’s Proposal?
Ruffalo recalls an encounter in which Feige says he is about to urge his Disney superiors to launch a female-driven superhero movie. But he is unsure whether Ike Perlmutter, at that point Disney’s largest shareholder, will find it convincing.
Mark Ruffalo Jokes About Ideas For Hulk’s Future
Ruffalo also reveals that he almost turned down the role. It is because of the technical aspects that associate with filming the character. All this happened when he is first approached by director Joss Whedon and co-star Robert Downey Jr. for the 2012 film.
Ruffalo also jokes about ideas for the Hulk’s future. He suggests that maybe Hulk and Wolverine will hook up. However, we are not sure if Hugh Jackman will be entirely down for that collab, but we will just take what we can get.
