Hulk rumors: Mark Ruffalo and Joss Whedon both deny that a Hulk movie is in the works. Wait for the 'Avengers' sequel.
Since "The Avengers" (2012) premiered in April last year (and even before), rumors have surfaced about the possibility of a new "Hulk" movie. Joss Whedon, the director of the movie, and Mark Ruffalo, the actor who portrayed the Hulk in his most recent incarnation, have both denied the rumors.
Much of the speculation has been caused by the fact that Ruffalo has signed a contract with Marvel for six pictures. Whether or not he'll get his own standalone film is up for debate. Most observers seem to think he'll be a supporting cast member in movies like "Thor 2" and "Captain America 2."
When asked about the possibility of doing a good Hulk movie in an interview during the Glasgow Film festival, Whedon said, "it would be very, very hard. Hulk is ... tricky. He’s the Claudio of superheroes. Because the problem is, it’s a very popular character, but it’s not a superhero. Half of it’s a superhero, half of it’s a werewolf. And you can’t structure it like a superhero movie, you can’t light it like a superhero movie. How do you develop that?
