Mark Ruffalo talks Hulk in ‘Thor: Ragnarok,’ wants Banner split

Just recently it was confirmed that the next time we’ll see the Hulk will be in Thor: Ragnarok, the third film in the character’s own film franchise from Marvel Studios. That will mark the first time Mark Ruffalo has been outside out the Avengers and the actor talked in interviews about the move.

Mark Ruffalo The Hulk Avengers photo“I play Dr. Bruce Banner, and occasionally I turn into a big green, mean monster,” he joked with The Huffington Post.

“I am excited to keep coming back to this role. I see a lot of space for it to grow. I feel like there’s a lot of cool stuff to explore still, especially the relationship between Banner and Hulk. Hopefully, we’ll see the two of them in a scene together. That would be cool!”

In the comic books: The Incredible Hulk #315,  ComicVine explains that Doc Samson (another hero exposed to gamma radiation) determined that Hulk was actually more of a conscious entity inside the mind of Bruce Banner rather than being inseparable from the scientist blasted with gamma rays. So Samson convinced the government to pay for a procedure to separate them.

The result was a Hulk without a reasonable mind that went on a rampage and was now unstoppable without Banner to help hold back his rage. Banner was forced to assemble a team of Hulkbusters to take him down and they had to become one again.

Production on the next installment of the Thor franchise, which will be directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) beginning in June of 2016 with shooting taking place in Chris Hemsworth‘s homeland of Australia.

Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Natalie Portman and Jaimie Alexander are all expected, reprising their respective roles from the first two Thor films.

Thor: Ragnarok will hit theaters on November 3rd, 2017.
