Mark Ruffalo Says Sequel To ‘The Incredible Hulk’ Might Be Too Expensive

Even though they’d save money on clothes, Mark Ruffalo feels a sequel to The Incredible Hulk might be too expensive.

Speaking with GQ, Ruffalo said he thought Marvel’s “expansion into streaming was really exciting. But the thing about Marvel movies is, you had to wait three years and that created a mystique.”

That’s been somewhat diluted in the wave of streaming shows, and Marvel Studios is now drastically reducing the amount of content coming out each year. But it may be too late, Ruffalo admits. “These corrections could be really positive things. Will it be what it was? I don’t know.”

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has had only been one pure Hulk movie: 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. In it, Bruce Banner was played by Edward Norton, with Ruffalo taking over the role in The Avengers series.

“I’d love to do a standalone Hulk, I just don’t think that’s ever going to happen,” he said. The cost of creating the CG-created character is very high, even as the tech has improved. “It’s very expensive if you did a whole movie, which is why they use the Hulk so sparingly. I priced myself out!”
