News: Mark Ruffalo Says Hulk Solo Movie Will Never Happen

Today was a huge day for Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars fans across the world.  Disney unveiled a slew of upcoming movie titles, casting announcements, and many other details tied to their massive cinematic world that encompasses most of the biggest franchises that exist. Sadly though, one major Marvel character is still missing from their upcoming slate of comic book movies and it just so happens to be our big green friend, the Hulk. 

Mark Ruffalo commented on the lack of a new solo movie featuring Banner as the menacing Avenger. Considering the mixed response to the Ang Lee version of the character and the much better film starring Ed Norton, it's rather surprising that we're still not seeing momentum towards bringing him back to the screen in his own adventure. According to Ruffalo, Universal and big money are the issue. Much like the Sony/Marvel Spider-Man thing that went on for years, the studio is not quite ready to let the character go. His comment to Variety is as follows:

"I just want to make one thing perfectly clear today that a standalone Hulk movie will never happen. Because Universal has the rights to the standalone Hulk movie and for some reason they don’t know how to play well with Marvel, and they don’t want to make money."
