Joss Whedon Talks About Possible Hulk Movie


Joss Whedon Talks About Possible Hulk Movie

The Hulk is easily one of the most popular characters in the recent Avengers movie, so it wasn’t surprising that many fans kept holding on to rumors of a standalone film in the near future. Sadly, both Mark Ruffalo and Joss Whedon has denied the rumors, with Ruffalo being open to the possibility while admitting that he hasn’t been contacted yet. He is in contract to play all movie versions of the Hulk, at least until said contract expires, so he’s probably one of the first few people to know.

Whedon, for his part, recently talked to Deadline.com and clarified why he finds the character problematic:

“The Hulk is the most difficult Marvel property,” says Whedon. “Is he a monster? Is he a hero? Are you going to root for a protagonist who spends all his time trying to stop the reason you came to the movie from happening?

“I don’t think the first two movies nailed it,” he continues, “but I don’t envy the task. It was easier to have him in a group than to build everything around him.”

“If he was Hulk for the entire movie, I think Mark [Ruffalo] at some point would go, ‘why am I here?’ I would be less inclined to pursue a storyline where the Hulk is only ever the Hulk. Mark and I loved the Hulk and went over and over the concept of rage and how it should manifest, and that part of it was fascinating to both of us.”
