The Hulk to star in Spider-Man franchise?

2015-05-06 18:00

Los Angeles - Mark Ruffalo could be starring as The Hulk in the next Spider-Man movies.

The 47-year-old actor has hinted the angry green superhero could show up in a 2017 reboot of the franchise, despite The Amazing Spider-Man 3 being axed, as he is contracted to appear in four more Marvel films.

He said: "I think I have four pictures left now. That could always go further, and that could mean I could show up in another character's movie, it could mean Avengers 3 and 4, I could do a Hulk standalone movie. It could mean any combination of those things.

"I don't know that I'm in the new Spider-Man films yet, but sometimes things happen at the last minute. I really don't know where I fit in from here on out, and I don't know that (the producers) do."

The Foxcatcher star also revealed that Marvel doesn't own the rights to The Hulk standalone films, as it's still property of Universal, but he's very hopeful that his character's not gone off "into the sunset", following the Avengers: Age of Ultron ending.

Speaking to, Mark said: "As far as standalone Hulk movies, Marvel doesn't really have the rights to that yet. That's still Universal's property, so there's that issue. That's the big problem with that, but I don't think that's insurmountable, but I don't know where it's going for me. I hope I'm still around, and that when I go into the Quinjet, I'm not going off into the sunset."
