Mark Ruffalo says chances of a Hulk standalone movie "don't look particularly promising"
Mark Ruffalo has said the chances of a standalone movie for The Hulk don't "look particularly promising".
The actor has played the superhero in each of the Avengers movies and will reprise the role in Thor: Ragnarok, but he's now said the chances of the character getting his own movie don't look good.
Speaking to Yahoo Movies, Ruffalo said when asked about the possibility: "I think they’ve been working on it. Marvel and Universal famously don’t get along very well, and so that’s working against us, definitely. But I know for a fact that everyone is holding out hope that one day we can do it."
He continued: "But the nature of the relationship right now, it’s a little prohibitive. And I hope that that changes, that changes with regimes, it changes over the course of time. But right now it doesn’t look particularly promising."
Ruffalo's Hulk will not appear in Captain America: Civil War, but he is confirmed to co-star in the third instalment of Thor, which is due out in the summer of 2017.
Taika Waititi, best known for his work writing and directing Flight Of The Conchords and vampire spoof What We Do In The Shadows, will direct Thor: Ragnarok.
