Hollywood star Mark Ruffalo has revealed he is uncertain about the Hulk's role in future films in the Marvel franchise
Mark Ruffalo is uncertain about the Hulk's role in future Marvel movies.
The 47-year-old actor, who starred as Bruce Banner/The Hulk in 'The Avengers' and is set to reprise the role in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron', has revealed the character's participation in other planned projects remains unclear.
Asked how many films he has left to complete on his Marvel contract, Mark said: "I think it's four [films left] now, but that could always go further. That could include different--I could show up in another character's movie; I could do Avengers 3 and 4; I could do a Hulk standalone; I could do a combination of those things. That's four or five, I think."
"I don't know if I'm in [Captain America: Civil War] yet. I don't know. Sometimes these things happen at the last minute in this world. I really don't know where I fit in from here on out, and I'm not sure they do."
He said, too, that an ongoing rights issue between Marvel and Universal means a standalone Hulk movie remains unlikely for the time being.
He told Collider: "As far as a Hulk movie, a standalone Hulk movie, Marvel doesn't really have the rights to that yet. That's still Universal's property, so there's that issue.
"That's a big impediment to moving forward with that. Now I don't think that's insurmountable, by the way, but I don't know where it's going from here for me."
