Mark Ruffalo Teases New Stand-Alone Hulk Movie
Mark Ruffalo is easily one of the most successful actors in the world these days. While he has worked in TV and film for decades, he’s most famous for his portrayal of the Hulk in the MCU.
Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe know that The Hulk is one of few characters in the comic book world who hasn’t gotten his own brand new comic book movie in the last decade, with the exception of Edward Norton and Eric Bana’s version of the character in the 2000s.
Mark Ruffalo has since become the most revered and popularized version of The Hulk, however, he hasn’t been overly excited at the idea of making a stand-alone movie – at least until now. During a conversation with Variety, the Avengers cast-member explained he would like to star in a Hulk movie to explain the character’s development.
Ruffalo stated he had an idea for the character that is “really interesting,” because there hasn’t been a film in the MCU yet that “followed him into his life.” Mark stated it would be “really interesting” to see what happens to him between all of the Avengers films.

From beginning conversations with Wally Lamb about adapting #IKnowThisMuchIsTrue in 2015 to putting finishing touches on the series remotely from our homes now, there's so much love and care that has gone into this project. It’s exactly what I want to do — tell the truth about human beings in a way that brings us together and doesn’t tear us apart. Thank you @variety for chatting with me and the team about it. Read the full story at the link in my bio. I Know This Much Is True premieres May 10 on @HBO. #IKTMIT Photos by @pernilleloof and @thomasloof.
The last time Mark Ruffalo was in the headlines was for more political reasons. For instance, on the 10th of October, 2019, Nick Markus reported on Mark’s outrage over pictures of Ellen DeGeneres hanging around the former US president, George W. Bush.
When Hollywood figures became enraged over the television personality defending George W. Bush, Ruffalo responded by stating George needed to be held accountable for his alleged “war crimes.”
As it was previously reported, Ellen and George W. Bush were photographed during an NFC match, and they looked like they were having a great time. Fans of the television show personality were not happy with her, and neither were many Hollywood elites.
Later, the personality addressed the matter on her show. The host urged people to be kind to others, despite differences in political perspectives. Mark, however, argued that George W. Bush needed to be “brought to justice” for what happened during the Iraq War, including “deaths and displacement,” and “American-lead torture.”
