According to Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo, fans shouldn’t expect another solo film starring the Green Goliath.
Ruffalo was on hand at D23 Expo along with a majority of the Marvel Cinematic Universe cast to promote Avengers: Infinity War ahead of the debut of the first teaser trailer. Following the panel, Ruffalo took some time to speak with Variety regarding the possibility of another Hulk solo film, revealing that unlike Sony, who was willing to work with Marvel on bringing Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Universal doesn’t seem interested in “playing nice.”

Ever since he took over the role in 2010, ahead of The Avengers, Ruffalo has been very vocal about his desire to make a solo Hulk film, of course, he’s also been very honest regarding the rights issues and how they’ve made it difficult for Marvel Studios to release a sequel to 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. Unfortunately, although Ruffalo and Marvel have apparently talked about the idea, it appears that the two studios were unable to come to terms to make things work — something the actor feels will never happen at this point.
According to his Avengers co-star, Don Cheadle, though, the real reason Universal won’t play nice is because they want to make money and they “clearly” won’t be able to do so with Ruffalo in the lead. You can check out Cheadle’s teasing and Ruffalo’s explanation regarding the sometimes frustrating rights situation in the video above.
Ahead of his appearance in Avengers: Infintiy War, Ruffalo can next be seen in Thor: Ragnarok, which is set to hit theaters this November. That film was directed by Hunt for the Wilderpeople director Taika Waititi and stars Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, and Jeff Goldblum.
