In his very first MCU movie, he was played by Edward Norton then when The Avengers rolled around he was replaced by Mark Ruffalo. "As far as a "Hulk" movie, a standalone "Hulk" movie, Marvel doesn't really have the rights to that yet".
"Universal has the rights to a standalone Hulk movie, and for some reason, they don't know how to play well with Marvel", explained Ruffalo. Could Thor: Ragnarok be a film setting up a Planet Hulk movie, the Internet buzzed?More news: White Sox deal starter Quintana to Cubs
"I just want to make one thing perfectly clear today that a standalone Hulk movie will never happen". It seems to be a pretty sore subject for him.
Ever since he took over the role in 2010, ahead of The Avengers, Ruffalo has been very vocal about his desire to make a solo Hulk film, of course, he's also been very honest regarding the rights issues and how they've made it hard for Marvel Studios to release a sequel to 2008's The Incredible Hulk. 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.
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".More news: US had clear shot at killing Kim Jong Un on July 4
