Actor Mark Ruffalo recently shared his thoughts on The Hulk's role in the upcoming "Thor: Ragnarok" in an interview with USA Today. In the interview Ruffalo states that, regarding a standalone Hulk film, "Actually, it feels even further away. It's not Marvel's property, it's Universal's property. I don't know. It seems really problematic." Clearly, not optimistic news for anyone hoping Ruffalo would be starring in a Hulk solo film anytime soon.
Ruffalo also talked what types of scenes he would like to see in a standalone film, if such a thing was possible. Ruffalo said he would love to see Bruce Banner and The Hulk meet each other. "When I was doing Age of Ultron -- doing the Scarlet Witch acid trip scenes -- it really took me a long time to figure out what the Hulk would be afraid of. And then I realized, it was Banner."
Ruffalo also said that he's looking forward to working with both Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston again in "Thor: Ragnarok," and that has seen some of what director Taika Waititi is working on and he likes where the film is headed. "Chris (Hemsworth) and I have a really good time together, we goof off and play around when Tom Hiddleston is around. So it'll be a lot of funny back-and-forth, especially with Taika, he does that really well. It'll have that kind of antagonistic 'Odd Couple' thing going on."
"Thor: Ragnarok" is scheduled for release on July 28, 2017.
