Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed how Mark Ruffalo played a role in the Hulk's journey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Feige took part in a Reddit AMA and answered a ton of questions from fans, with one involving a meeting between Feige and Ruffalo years ago surrounding what Ruffalo wanted out of Hulk's character arc, which ended up playing out in Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
"Many years ago, Mark came in for a meeting with us at Marvel Studios to discuss ways in which the Hulk could grow and evolve in upcoming films," Feige said. "He pitched a lot of cool ideas, some of which led to what you saw in Thor: Ragnarok, Infinity War and Endgame, and some of which would still be cool to see someday."
It is possible Ruffalo's ideas included the childlike talkative Hulk in Ragnarok, the reluctant Hulk in Infinity War and the Professor Hulk character in Endgame.
Also, when Feige said Ruffalo had other ideas that would be "cool to see someday," it leaves the door open for the Hulk to return in future installments. Could the MCU see the World Breaker Hulk? Immortal Hulk? Joe Fixit? The options are endless.
