Mark Ruffalo talks about a possible Hulk spin-off
The upcoming Joss Whedon directed film THE AVENGERS is opening up in the next few weeks (on May 4th, in case you missed it) and it’s only natural that talks of spin-offs are flying around Hollywood. We know that there will be another slew of Marvel films, but what about The Incredible Hulk? Mark Ruffalo recently did an interview (click on the bottom link for the entire interview) where he says that he would not be adverse to the idea, but there is nothing definite at this time. Here’s what Mark Ruffalo says about the subject, “There’s been sort of toying around with the idea but no one from Marvel or Universal has mentioned it to me. It’s probably premature. They’re about to make another ‘Captain America’ and another ‘Thor’ and another ‘Iron Man.’ I’m sure a third ‘Hulk’ is predominately undermined at the moment. But I’d entertain that, definitely for the right story.” We’ll keep you up-to-date on that project if or when it progresses.
I’m personally very excited to see Mark Ruffalo take on The Incredible Hulk, but I know there have been a lot of skeptics out there who were wary. Mark Ruffalo has excelled at every project he’s been a part of and his participation in THE AVENGERS will most likely be no different. How could a marriage of Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey, Jr to Joss Whedon not work out? That’s really the question we need to ask ourselves. I know it’ll be tough to give the Hulk another full length film, but I think Marvel should give Mark Ruffalo a shot. If Mark Ruffalo can’t make it a success, then we can let the Hulk’s Hollywood career go slowly into the night.
THE AVENGERS stars Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Stellan Skarsgard (Erik Selvig). The Joss Whedon directed film hits theaters on May 4th, 2012. Also be sure to stay until the end of the credits if you go see this at the theater people, it’s a Marvel film and you know there will be some type of cool clip at the end. (Playlist)
