Mark Ruffalo has confirmed that Marvel Studios is considering a Hulk standalone movie.
“I think they are, for the first time, entertaining the idea of it,” Ruffalo told Digital Spy today (June 17). “When we did The Avengers it was basically ‘No!’, and now there is some consideration for it.
“But there’s still nothing definitive, not even a skeletal version of what it would be. I look forward to going down that road, if we could crack that nut.”
Watch the video above to hear Ruffalo’s full answer, during which he also discusses what’s in store for the Science Bros in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Six of this season’s hottest awards contenders — also including Liev Schreiber, Michael Sheen and Jeff Daniels — talk to THR about losing movie gigs to the Brads (Pitt and Cooper, that is), worrying whether their agency is fighting hard enough for them and getting jealous over other performances.
The arrival of Josh Charles at Mack Sennett Studio in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake neighborhood on the morning of March 30 was like seeing a ghost. Only seven days earlier, the Good Wife star (and long-time pal of panelist Jon Hamm) was brutally killed off his hit CBS series, lending a palpable memorial vibe to the start of an otherwise buoyant gathering of six dramatic actors: The Newsroom’s Jeff Daniels, 59; Ray Donovan’s Liev Schreiber, 46; Masters of Sex’s Michael Sheen, 45; The Normal Heart’s Mark Ruffalo, 46; Mad Men’s Hamm, 43; and Charles, 42.
Join in as these veteran performers of film, theater and television debate the merits and failings of Twitter, why the talent agency system is failing up-and-comers and why a fear of typecasting — and never working again — often can be an actor’s most effective tool.
In issue 221 of Total Film magazine, Mark Ruffalo chats about the Hulk’s increased presence in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Inside the issue – which is available for just £2.99 on your iPad – Ruffalo teases that everyone’s favourite big green monster gets more screen time and character development.
“[My role's] even bigger than last time, and it’s more complex and it has more layers and a bit more arc” the star says.
Not only that, but it seems that the motion capture process is becoming a whole lot more agreeable second time around.
“I’m really tripping on the technology of this motion-capture stuff… now I just completely embrace it and see it as this other exciting place we can go as performers.”
More Hulk – and a better looking, more immersive one at that? Sign us up.

HBO Home Entertainment is bringing director Ryan Murphy and writer Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart to Blu-ray this summer. The HBO original film is based on Kramer’s groundbreaking Tony Award-winning 1985 play of the same name and stars Mark Ruffalo, Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Taylor Kitsch, Julia Roberts, Alfred Molina and Corey Stoll. The Normal Heart streets on August 26th.
Official Synopsis: Murphy and Kramer’s drama tells the story of the onset of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, taking an unflinching look at the nation’s sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fight to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial.
Mark Ruffalo portrays Ned Weeks, who witnesses first-hand a mysterious disease that has begun to claim the lives of many in his gay community and starts to seek answers. Matt Bomer plays Felix Turner, a reporter who becomes Ned’s lover. Taylor Kitsch plays Bruce Niles, a closeted investment banker who becomes a prominent AIDS activist. Jim Parsons plays gay activist Tommy Boatwright, reprising his role from the 2011 Broadway revival. Roberts plays physician Dr. Emma Brookner, a survivor of childhood polio who treats several of the earliest victims of HIV-AIDS.
Kramer’s play debuted at New York’s Public Theatre in 1985 and was revived in Los Angeles and London, and off-Broadway. The 2011 Broadway revival garnered five Tony nominations, winning for Best Revival, Best Featured Actor and Best Featured Actress.
The Blu-ray edition of The Normal Heart is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. HBO has yet to detail special features.
