Mark Ruffalo: 'A Standalone Hulk Movie Will Never Happen' Because of Universal

"Despite obtaining the cinematic rights to make Hulk movies [in 2005], Marvel did not obtain distribution rights,"Forbes reports. And, they don't want to make money", he jokingly said".

Following the screening - which received deafening applause from the audience - Ruffalo spoke to Variety about a potential spin-off of his own. "A standalone Hulk movie will never happen".

This has always been rumored to be the source of contention; Marvel has rights to use the character, but only Universal Pictures can make a Hulk standalone film.

Control rooms have been opened at Bhubaneswar , Sambalpur, Khurda Road and Vishakhapatnam under the direction of GM Umesh Singh. Sources said water level of Nagavali river which caused havoc in the district after incessant rainfall is declining gradually.

"And with you as the new Hulk, it would be awful", quipped Cheadle. The last standalone Hulk movie was The Incredible Hulk, which was released by Universal Pictures in 2008. That's a big impediment to moving forward with that. The reason the film can not happen anytime soon is because Universal still has a claim on Hulk's film rights. "Now that I don't think that's insurmountable, by the way, but I don't know where it's going from here for me", he said. During the live-action movies panel, a bunch of the cast from Avengers: Infinity War came out to introduce the first footage from the movie, which absolutely wowed the crowd. Fortunately, we'll be seeing Ruffalo in the role not only in Thor: Ragnarok, but next year's Avengers: Infinity War and 2019's untitled Avengers sequel, as well.

Are you sorry there won't be another standalone Hulk adventure, or just happy we get to keep Ruffalo around in other Marvel movies?

That doesn't seem like it will happen, Ruffalo told an intrepid reporter at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California.
