There are three other Marvel Phase 3 movies that we'll see before Thor and Hulk team up for Ragnarok. Captain America: Civil War shot all through this past summer and will be in theaters this May. The first trailer is rumored to arrive with Star Wars: The Force Awakens in December. Doctor Strange will begin shooting before the year is out. It will arrive in theaters November 2016. And then Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will open in the summer of 2017. Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi, who was hired to punch up the humor in the movie. Tom Hiddleston is expected to return as Loki, and the movie may even mark the first appearance of Valkyrie. While we're still a few years away, it sounds like this is going to be epic.

When Captain America: Civil War started production in Atlanta back in May, Marvel confirmed its cast, including several we knew about, along with a few surprisign additions, such as Ant-Man star Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, and William Hurt reprising his role as General Thaddeus Ross from 2008's The Incredible Hulk. The surprise inclusion of General Ross led many fans to wondering if Mark Ruffalo's Hulk will be a part of this massive superhero movie. The actor himself revealed in June that Robert Downey Jr. told him personally that he does have a role in Captain America: Civil War. That was never confirmed by the studio. Today, we have a new report from the German website Bild, which reveals that Mark Ruffalo was spotted partying with Captain America: Civil War co-stars Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie and Daniel Brühl in Berlin after hours.
Production on Captain America: Civil War recently shifted from Atlanta to Berlin, and Mark Ruffalo's presence in the city alongside confirmed Captain America: Civil War stars certainly lends credence to rumors that he does have a role in the movie. Then again, the actor could just be in Berlin for unrelated reasons, and wanted to spend time with the actors off set, but we don't know for sure. At this point in the production, it seems unlikely that Marvel would confirm Mark Ruffalo's appearance, but we'll have to wait and see. It isn't known exactly how long production will take place in Berlin for, or where they are shooting, but if there are any outdoor shoots, it's possible we could see the actor in upcoming photos from the set.Read More

The Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour is officially in full swing, which means we'll be hearing quite a bit from its team of heroes. Yesterday was the first domestic meeting of minds, and the biggest news to come out of the press conferences so far is Mark Ruffalo's claim that a standalone Hulk movie may happen. And as long rumored, it may include the green goliath going into space. Might we finally see the long rumored Planet Hulk become a reality? Or is Hulk teaming up with Star-Lord and pals for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 as long teased on the internet?
Scarlett Johansson goes onto ask, "Do they have a Starbucks there? That's what I want to know." And Mark Ruffalo, laughing, answering: "They don't. It's pretty bleak." While it sounds like there are current talks for Planet Hulk, the actor goes onto say that he hasn't been involved in any active talks for the project, and as you all know, the movie is not part of the Phase 3 slate, which was announced last year. If Planet Hulk goes forward, it might not happen until at least 2020, which is only five years from now. Last July, Kevin Feige claimed that there weren't any plans for a solo Hulk movie anytime soon. And called adapting Planet Hulk a huge challenge.Read More
Not every Avenger can have their own Marvel movie. And because of that, certain core members of the team will be getting more screen time this summer in the epic ensemble adventure Avengers: Age of Ultron. One of those characters is fan-favorite The Hulk. He literally stole the show in Marvel's The Avengers, but since that time, we haven't seen the green goliath. Sure, Hulk has two solo adventures under his belt, but those were a long time ago. Audience are hungry to see the return of Bruce Banner, and according to star Mark Ruffalo, fans won't walk away disappointed. Though, it's unclear if this latest sequel is truly setting up a third Hulk solo film, or where he may wind up next.
Is it possible that Bruce Banner could become the Hulk semi-permanently as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues on into the future? The idea has been explored in the comic books before, starting in January of 1991 in issue #377 of the original Incredible Hulk run, which saw Hulk and Banner merge into a new incarnation known as 'The Professor'. Will we ever see 'The Professor' on the big screen? Maybe in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 or the two part Avengers: Infinity War? Only time will tell!Read More
