Mark Ruffalo on ‘Thor Ragnarok’ script, solo Hulk film, ‘Civil War’

Avengers star Mark Ruffalo spoke with Yahoo Movies to discuss his Golden Globe nomination before fielding questions on his role in upcoming Marvel projects, including a solo Hulk film.

Ruffalo will return as Banner/Hulk in the next Thor film, Thor: Ragnarok, and tells fans that “…they’re still writing the script. That’ll start shooting this summer. In June. There’s still a lot of work to do on that.”

Marvel has confirmed rumors that neither Ruffalo nor the Hulk will be making an appearance in Captain America: Civil War.

Ruffalo was asked about secrecy in the Marvel universe compared to the Star Wars process.

“I don’t know if it’s as secretive as that, but it’s pretty secret. They definitely don’t want people to know what was going on for a while. I’ve been sworn to secrecy, to the point where they don’t even tell me. And they keep an eye on you. You might get a call. I tend to walk dangerously close to the line, as I generally have since I was a young boy, and so you do get the calls, like, ‘OK, let’s be a little careful here.'”

Then the statement was made that it must be hard to keep it all in.

“It is. Now they make sure to tell you what you’re allowed to say and what you’re not.”

In an interview with Aint It Cool News, Ruffalo said that his character will be “moving away” from the status quo of Bruce Banner and the Hulk from previous interpretations.

“He’s on the run. I think that we carry that through,” said Ruffalo, referring to the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron. “It’s not just a matter of taking himself to some remote place and hiding. Now he’s removing himself from humanity altogether. I’m not sure where we’re going to head with that, but I’m sure that’s probably still very much alive within him.”

“It’s very subtle, but the Banner/Hulk consciousness is beginning to meld a little bit,” the actor continued. “Who decided to leave? Was it Banner or Hulk? It’s not really in the (cinematic) mythology of Hulk up until that moment to be that conscious and pro-active. It’s interesting, right?”
