Mark Ruffalo Says A New 'Hulk' Standalone Movie 'Will Never Happen'

The reason is that apparently Universal still holds some of the Hulk solo movie rights, and unlike Sony with Spider-Man, they're not interested in making a deal.

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. The reason? Marvel doesn't have the rights to the Hulk movie. Unfortunately for Hulk fans, Ruffalo had some bad news.

In Marvel Studios' "Thor: Ragnarok", Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok-the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization-at the hands of an all-powerful threat, the ruthless Hela.

"Avengers: Infinity Wars" will hit theaters May 4, 2018.

"I want to just make one thing perfectly clear today: A standalone "Hulk" movie will never happen".

Besides, Ruffalo joked, "I figure I've got like two or three more years left before I'm too old to play the Hulk".

Ahead of his appearance in Avengers: Infintiy War, Ruffalo can next be seen in Thor: Ragnarok, which is set to hit theaters this November.

Ruffalo was not actually the first actor in the MCU to play the Hulk, as Edward Norton first donned the green motion-capture skin in 2008's The Incredible Hulk in the early days of the MCU. "Thor 3 is the beginning of a lot of changes for Banner and for Hulk".
