Thor is still getting Marvel movies, and so is Black Widow. And even Jeremy Renner is set to get a second role of the dice in the Hawkeye series for Disney+.

But what about poor old Bruce Banner?

For his part, Mark Ruffalo is still keen to reprise his role as the physicist with the penchant for turning green and smashing things up.

While he said that there are no plans as yet, he told Variety: “If we come up with something good, that would be really interesting. Right now that’s about it. That’s all there is on the table.”

He went on: “There’s an idea that I think could be really interesting. We’ve never really followed him into his life. He’s always kind of off on the side.

“He’s like the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern of the Avengers. It’d be interesting to fill in all the blanks about what happened to him in between all these movies.”

Previous Hulks Eric Bana and Ed Norton both scooped their own solo movies, but the spotlight has evaded Ruffalo in the current MCU, despite being one of the series’ most popular characters.

“Maybe Hulk and Wolverine could hook up,” Ruffalo added.

Wolverine made his first ever comic book appearance in The Incredible Hulk comic books series, the two coming to blows.

While there might not be concrete plans for the Hulk, Thor will be back in Thor: Love and Thunder, set for February, 2022.

Black Widow, meanwhile, is set for release in November.
