Mark Ruffalo dismisses Planet Hulk movie idea
There may yet be another standalone Hulk movie - but don't expect it to use Planet Hulk as inspiration...
He's currently reprising the role of Bruce Banner/Hulk in Joss Whedon's now-shooting Avengers: Age Of Ultron, but Mark Ruffalo has ruled out one potential future direction for the character on the big screen.
Ruffalo had admitted a couple of weeks back that there seemed to be conversations once again over a possible standalone Hulk movie from Marvel. This led in some quarters to speculation that a Planet Hulk approach may be the way forward. That said, it beggars belief that websites would think should a thing. Not least because it seemed to have been debunked some time ago.
After all, Joss Whedon has already downplayed the idea of a Planet Hulk movie, but Ruffalo, chatting to MTV, has now done the same. "Planet Hulk? I don't think that's the way to go yet", he said. "I think you need Banner. The whole thing is just him as Hulk, on a planet, fighting other gladiators", argued Ruffalo.
He's got a point, but then the idea of Hulk on a planet fighting other gladiators is pretty much the reason some quite fancied the idea of a Planet Hulk film in the first place. Even more so if this man was involved...
We'll get our own coat, it's okay.
