Despite the title claiming Captain America: Civil War centers on Chris Evans' Steve Rogers, it could be construed as another Avengers movie. Almost the entire lineup from Avengers: Age of Ultron has been confirmed for Captain America: Civil War, all except Chris Hemsworth's Thor and Mark Ruffalo's Hulk. However, Mark Ruffalo teased last week that Robert Downey Jr. told him personally, there is a role for Hulk in this first Marvel Phase Three movie, but we haven't had any confirmation from Marvel and Disney. In a new interview with Hitfix, Mark Ruffalo says that he is taking Robert Downey Jr. at his word, despite not hearing anything official just yet.
"If Robert Downey Jr. says I'm in Captain America, I'm in Captain America dammit. And I will wait for the day that my call sheet shows up at my doorstep or my script. At this point, I'm told that I'm in it by Robert, which I'll take as biblical, but I just haven't heard or seen from production yet."
Shooting on Captain America: Civil War is still under way in Atlanta, with production scheduled to take place through mid-September, so there is certainly time for the actor to come by and film certain scenes. It's clear that, if Hulk is present in the sequel, it won't be a huge roll. But even the smallest appearance would be welcomed by fans, many of whom are still trying to figure out where the green goliath took off to in the Quinjet at the end of Avengers 2. If he does show up, it raises an interesting question: whose side will he be on? We know the plot centers on two factions of heroes siding with either Captain America or Iron Man, so who do you think Hulk will join? Our money is on Iron Man.
