Hulk is presently unable to get his personal film in for authorized causes, however Ruffalo lately revealed why it isn’t that a lot of an curiosity to him, saying:
No! Are you kidding me? I get to have the very best time.
He does have a degree. As a result of fairly than having the duty of main his personal franchise, he is having fun with having a supporting function and getting a barely simpler schedule. Main a film could be further grueling contemplating how a lot movement seize is critical to deliver the massive inexperienced man to life, so it is positively extra enjoyable to play a tertiary character in big staff up movies like Ragnarok and Infinity War.
That being stated, Mark Ruffalo‘s feedback to BBC are positive to disappoint the extra hardcore Hulk followers. As a result of whereas he is been a serious determine since Section One of many shared universe, The Hulk is likely one of the many OG Avengers who nonetheless have not been given their time to shine.

Followers have been calling for she and Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye to get their very own S.H.I.E.L.D.-centric spy film, however to date these plans have not come to fruition.

Relatively than Marvel Studios, Common really has the rights to any potential solo films for the behemoth Avenger. They’ve refused to make any type of cope with Marvel ala Sony’s Spider-Man settlement, so Ruffalo merely cannot lead his personal film because the anti-hero. Fortunately, he appears pretty disinterested.
