Iron Man got three of his own movies, as did Captain America. Thor has his own trilogy, too, with a fourth film on the way. Black Widow is, at long last, fronting her own solo outing. Even Hawkeye is getting a Disney+ series. So where’s Hulk’s movie?
Admittedly, 2008’s The Incredible Hulk — which stars Edward Norton as the big green guy — is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Bruce Banner hasn’t headlined his own movie since Mark Ruffalo took over and perfected the part. He will, though, if Ruffalo has his way.
“There’s an idea that I think could be really interesting,” he told Variety. Thus far, the actor has portrayed both Banner and his emerald-hued alter ego over five MCU films, most recently in last year’s Avengers: Endgame.
“We’ve never really followed him into his life. He’s always kind of off on the side. He’s like the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern of the Avengers,” Ruffalo teased. “It’d be interesting to fill in all the blanks about what happened to him in between all these movies.”
