Thomas Roach on why a standalone Hulk film won’t happen any time soon….

Mark Ruffalo is currently playing the Hulk after replacing actor Ed Norton from The Incredible Hulk back in 2008. Fans have praised Ruffalo’s performance as both Bruce Banner and the Hulk and many have suggested that his Hulk could get his own standalone movie. But, despite fans calling out for another movie, I just can’t see it happening.

The problem with a standalone Hulk movie is that it’s titled ‘Hulk’ and not ‘Bruce Banner’ so there needs to be plenty of the Hulk in it, with lots of destruction and action. People want to see Hulk more than Bruce Banner, but the character has no personality when in the brutish green form.

Frankly I am yet to be sold on Mark Ruffalo leading a Marvel film of his own – not because I think he is a bad actor, »
