From the day Mark Ruffalo joined Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2012 as Hulk, fans have been waiting for a solo Hulk movie. In Avengers: Endgame, we saw a very different avatar of our angry green giant man – Smart Hulk. But what’s next for the superhero post this 2019 film? Read on.
After the humongous success of Avengers: Endgame, MCU announced its Phase 4 projects. This line-up consists of movies Black Widow, Thor: Love and Thunder, The Eternals, Black Panther 2 and others. But there was no mention of Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk in any movie or even the Disney+ series.
In several interviews, Mark Ruffalo shared the numerous ideas he pitched to Marvel about solo Hulk film. Recently, he said they can make a film on how Hulk became the Smart Hulk we saw in Avengers: Endgame. Unfortunately, it looks like Ruffalo’s character has nothing left to do in MCU. The rights of this green superhero lie with Universal, so a solo film is not going to happen for sure.
As reported by Screenrant, after wielding the infinity gauntlet to bring back the lost heroes in Avengers: Endgame, it seems like Hulk’s story is finished in MCU. Mark Ruffalo’s character has evolved a lot in the Marvel Cinematic Universe till Endgame and there’s hardly anything left to tell.
There are also reports that Ruffalo’s Hulk will appear in Marvel and Disney+ series, She-Hulk. But there is no confirmation on the same. The report mentioned that Marvel might replace Ruffalo’s Hulk with She-Hulk in their future projects.
In MCU’s timeline, Mark’s green Avenger has appeared in several films like The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. So is it really the end of MCU journey for Hulk? Only Marvel can confirm the same.
