Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige Teases Future Plans For Hulk
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says leftover ideas pitched by Hulk star Mark Ruffalo “would still be cool to see someday.”
According to comicbook.com, Feige was hinting the character could return after Avengers: Endgame.
Feige said that Ruffalo pitched some cool ideas that even ended up making it into a few MCU films.
...some of which led to what you saw in Thor: Ragnarok, Infinity War and Endgame, and some of which would still be cool to see someday.”
Feige in 2017 said he wouldn’t call Ragnarok and the two-part Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame “an unofficial Hulk trilogy,” but did say “there is a character arc for Hulk within those three movies that, yes, track together by design.”
The producer went on to credit Ruffalo, who succeeded The Incredible Hulk star Edward Norton in the role, for adding an extra layer of depth to the character, who evolves from unwillingly transforming into his green-skinned alter ego to reaching a compromise that sees the two achieve harmony when merged as an intelligent Hulk in Endgame.
“Ruffalo is a master at not going deep and dark, but taking that inner pain and kind of trying to become zen about it.
We saw that in Avengers 1, where Tony Stark is screwing around and poking him with something and saying, oh, careful, and he goes, ‘I can handle pointy things.’ He’s much more zen about it.
His secret is he’s always angry,’” Feige said.
