Subscribe To Mark Ruffalo Has Storyline Ideas For Hulk's Return After Avengers: Endgame Updates
It sounds like Mark Ruffalo knows what he wants to happen next for Bruce Banner/Hulk. Here's what he recently said on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert:
This is not the first time Mark Ruffalo has mentioned one of his little chats with Kevin Feige -- and I picture them eating some shawarma together, or maybe taking selfies with fans in diners. A couple of years ago, when Thor: Raganok first came out, Ruffalo told CinemaBlend that Feige had pulled him aside and asked him what he would want them to do if they could do a standalone Hulk movie...
It sounds like Mark Ruffalo's input was factored into the arc Hulk got from Thor: Ragnarok to Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. So now Ruffalo and Kevin Feige are due for another meeting to plan the next arc. That's what it sounds like, anyway. Feige did recently confirm that She-Hulk and two other new Marvel heroes will be coming to the big screen in MCU movies after their Disney+ shows debut. I wouldn't be shocked if She-Hulk was joined by her cousin on screen.
Avengers: Endgame did set up Hulk for some potentially interesting storylines. The Snap nearly killed Hulk, and the Russo Brothers confirmed it left him with permanent damage:
The Hulk lost some strength and has heartbreak from losing Black Widow, but he must also be hurting from losing Bruce Banner's fellow Science Bro Tony Stark.
Do you see a place for Hulk in that lineup as a key supporting player, like he was in Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Endgame? Mark Ruffalo said he was excited about Spider-Man's MCU return, and I could see Bruce Banner as a potential new mentor for Peter Parker after the loss of Tony Stark.
