New Hulk Character Poster from Avengers: Age of Ultron, Plus Mark Ruffalo on a Hulk Solo Movie
It looks like yesterday's Iron Man character poster was, indeed, the first of a series, as today we're being treated to a solo Hulk character poster from Avengers: Age of Ultron:
This could mean that we'll get a new Avengers: Age of Ultron character poster every day leading up to that "big announcement" teased by Robert Downey Jr., which is set to come out one week from today. My guess- Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Nick Fury, and a combined Scarlet Witch/Quicksilver, probably in approximately that order.
Mark Ruffalo didn't personally release this poster like RDJ did, but he did share some thoughts on a potential Hulk solo movie. The studios have been extremely gun-shy about it in spite of Ruffalo's star power, probably because both of the last two attempts bombed so badly. But many fans have been clamoring for it, and Ruffalo seems to think it's a distinct possibility. Speaking to Empire, the actor said of his character's journey in Avengers: Age of Ultron: "There's a battle going on between these two opposing egos that live inside him... As Bruce is able to impress his will on the Hulk, going into The Hulk and being inside the Hulk when he's raging, The Hulk's will is also growing and able to impress upon Bruce... We're laying the groundwork for that here. It'll be interesting to see if that ends up being what would be the next Hulk movie."
Then, when asked what, if anything, is happening with the solo film, he said, "Who knows, really? That's such an amorphous thing. Nobody has talked to me about that yet. It seems people want it, but it's tough. They've already done two of 'em, and they've only done two Thors, they had a nice run on Iron Man. I feel like they have their plates full. There's probably other people they're keen on doing but I think people have shown that they're ready to see another one."
His statements are fairly vague, but somewhat optimistic, I suppose? I would guess, especially with more competition coming out from DC/Warner Bros., that they'll eventually take advantage of Ruffalo's public goodwill and try to turn Hulk into as much of a cash cow as Iron Man and Captain America, but that's pure speculation at this point.
Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out in theaters on May 1.
