Everyone knows that Marvel is cooking up sequels to their Iron Man, Thor and Captain America franchises. Everyone also knows that an Avengers sequel is pretty much a certainty. But what about Hulk?
Both Hulk movies did all right at the box office, with the Edward Norton one doing better. Marvel was happy with it but wasn’t sure about the sequel. From most people’s early reactions of The Avengers, The Hulk steals the show. So curiosity about a Hulk film will be at a high, assuming people are high on the Hulk after the film opens.
So what’s up Mark Ruffalo, can we expect another one? He tells The Playlist the answer:
“There’s been sort of toying around with the idea but no one from Marvel or Universal has mentioned it to me. It’s probably premature. They’re about to make another ‘Captain America’ and another ‘Thor’ and another ‘Iron Man.’ I’m sure a third ‘Hulk’ is predominately undermined at the moment. But I’d entertain that, definitely for the right story.”
Where could he see the Hulk franchise going? Now that his origin story is complete? Ruffalo went through the Hulk comics for ideas.
“I think we could do a lot more than anyone’s been able to do because of where the technology is. So something like ‘Planet Hulk,’ you could almost do something like that now. Although it’s mostly Hulk. I haven’t really thought about it. There’s something cool about Bruce Banner, especially in the ‘70s series, moving from place to place and falling in love. [He hums the old theme song] I don’t know. I feel like there’s so many places to go. I saw this whole kind of funny, interesting thing with Bruce Banner in India and when Hulk came around everyone thought he was a God and they all painted themselves and worshipped him. There’s plenty to do.”
