When Mark Ruffalo's Hulk was confirmed to appear in Thor Ragnarok, it was revealed that both Hulk and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) will be going on a "universal road trip." While no story details have been confirmed, a new rumor surfaced earlier this month that claimed the new villain Hela, rumored to be played by Cate Blanchett, banishes Thor from Asgard after teaming up with Loki. Thor is sent to a mysterious planet where he is forced into gladiator-style combat with the planet's champion, Hulk.
Thor: Ragnarok will start shooting this summer in Australia, with Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Avengers: Infinity War - Part II set to shoot back-to-back over a nine-month shoot, starting at the end of 2016. Are you excited to learn more about Hulk's story line in Thor: Ragnarok? It seems this will be the closest fans will get to a stand alone Hulk movie, so be sure to stay tuned for more details.Read More
When asked if he was looking forward to going to Asgard, the actor responded, "Hells yeah!" We also reported last month that Black List writer Stephany Folsom has come aboard to rewrite the script by Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle, with production set to begin this summer in Australia. Are you looking forward to this "universal road trip" with Thor and Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok?

Marvel will kick off its massive Phase Three next year with Captain America: Civil War. The movie will include almost all of Earth's Mightiest Heroes from this summer's Avengers: Age of Ultron, with just two exceptions: Mark Ruffalo's Hulk and Chris Hemsworth's Thor. Both of those beloved characters will return in Thor: Ragnarok, which starts production in Australia next summer. While doing press for his Golden Globe nominated performance in Infinitely Polar Bear, Mark Ruffalo shed some new light on where we'll find Hulk in an interview with Ain't It Cool News.
A "regime change" at Sony is exactly what helped Marvel finally land the rights to Spider-Man for use in the MCU, but those hoping for a Universal Pictures regime change, you might not want to hold your breath. Universal is coming off a record breaking year at the box office, becoming the first studio in history to release three films that grossed $1 billion worldwide in the same year, Furious 7, Jurassic World and Minions. What do you think about these new Hulk details?Read More
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
