Mark Ruffalo might not be done playing Hulk and Bruce Banner just yet. The actor revealed over the weekend that he wants to make a Hulk Vs. Wolverine movie. He also announced that he's going to be talking to Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige about his next role in the near future. Marvel Cinematic Universe fans love Ruffalo as Hulk and Bruce Banner, so many are wondering where the characters will pop up next, especially after the introduction of Smart Hulk in Avengers: Endgame.
Mark Ruffalo appeared at Tokyo Comic-Con over the weekend and talked to the fans about the MCU. It's going to be interesting to see where Hulk goes next and fans want to know if he'll appear in Thor: Love and Thunder. Taika Waititi has not made any major announcements having to do with the Thor sequel since San Diego Comic-Con, but production begins next year. As for the future of Hulk, Ruffalo has a meeting booked. He explains.
"Kevin Feige just asked me last week if I had any more ideas or stories for the Hulk. And I said yeah, I think there's still some stories to tell. And he said, 'Well why don't you come in and tell me about them and we'll see if we can find a place for you in the Marvel universe?'"
As for what one of those projects would be, Mark Ruffalo says, "Hulk vs. Wolverine, I'd like to see that. Hulk vs. Wolverine." Ruffalo may just be being silly at this point, but Wolverine is now officially a part of the MCU and it does take place in the comics. Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk is a comic book miniseries that ran from 2005 to 2009. It was written by Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof, and illustrated by artist Leinil Francis Yu and colorist Dave McCaig. The comic series was even animated and released on DVD back in 2013.
There was a rumor floating around back in September that a Wolverine vs. Hulk movie was in development at Marvel Studios. The rumor went on to say that the version of Hulk would be based on the Immortal comic series, which would make sense. The rumor also pointed out that the movie could be 3 to 4 years away. While this sounds exciting, it is an unconfirmed rumor.
Mark Ruffalo does have a reputation when it comes to spoiling MCU projects, so this could be one of those times. But, one can't really imagine Wolverine's introduction into the MCU being in a movie where he goes up against the Hulk. Regardless, Marvel Studios is into taking chances, so it could happen, maybe even on an episode of their What If...? series, which would make a bit more sense. Hulk just really needs his own project. Mark Ruffalo's Tokyo Comic-Con words on a Wolverine vs. Hulk movie were first reported by Comic Book.
