Despite early and repeated rumblings following the release of The Avengers that Marvel was developing a new Hulk film, actor Mark Ruffalo insisted last spring that a solo outing was “not in the works right now.” He did, however, try comfort fans whose hopes he smashed by adding, “One never knows what the future will bring.” Is it possible that future is now?
Latino Review draws attention to comments made Thursday on a Minnesota radio show by Incredible Hulk TV star Lou Ferrigno, who said Ruffalo’s Green Goliath emerged as the star of 2012’s The Avengers and “saved the day.”
“Now, because he saved the day, they’re making another solo Hulk movie after the second Avengers comes out,” said the comics convention staple, who lent his voice to the Hulk in The Avengers and presumably will again in next year’s Age of Ultron.
Whether Ferrigno has insider knowledge or is simply going by the same rumors everyone else has read, of course, remains to be seen. But his comments certainly give Hulk fans something more to look forward to from the Marvel Studios presentation at Comic-Con International.
