Fans hoping to see a solo Hulk film within the Marvel Cinematic Universe may not be too thrilled by this latest piece of news. Speaking with Variety today during the D23 Expo in Anaheim, actor Mark Ruffalo revealed that a solo film centred around Marvel's green giant isn't going to happen.
"“I want just make one thing perfectly clear today," Ruffalo told the trade, "a standalone Hulk movie will never happen." According to the actor, Hulk rights-holder Universal is not keen on sharing the character with Marvel Studios in a fashion similar to how Sony paired with the company for the recently released Spider-Man: Homecoming.
"Universal has the rights to the standalone Hulk movie and for some reason they don’t know how to play well with Marvel and they don’t want to make money," Ruffalo said.

Ruffalo later took to his official Twitter account to clarify those comments.
I want a stand alone Hulk movie. I know I said there wouldn't be one but that doesn't mean there won't be one. 😜 https://t.co/lPKUDiKn07— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) July 15, 2017
The last time we got a solo Hulk movie was in 2008 and starring Edward Norton.
Whatever happens in the future, fans can look forward to the Hulk's return to the big screen this November in Thor: Ragnarok. In the film, Hulk will encounter the Asgardian hero on the planet Sakaar and the pair will enjoy an intergalactic buddy cop road trip.
Look for it to arrive on the big screen November 3rd.
