The Hulk already has his own standalone movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - "The Incredible Hulk", starring Edward Norton in the title role.

Mark Ruffalo, who reprises his role as Bruce Banner/The Hulk in the move, thinks its lighter tone is flawless.

Ahead of the release of Thor: Ragnarok in India on November 3, figurines of Marvel super heroes Thor and Hulk will go on a multi-city tour in the country.

"So basically, Kevin [Feige] pulled me aside before this, and said, 'If you were gonna do a. if we were going to do a standalone Hulk movie, what would it be?' And I said, 'I think it should be this, this, this, and this and this, and ends up like this, '" Ruffalo told CinemaBlend.

Although the Hulk may not have the opportunity to successfully bust into theaters under his own moniker any time soon, we can at least look forward to seeing some interesting growth and character progression in the MCU for the foreseeable future.

Marvel Studios has had a lot of success with critics ever since the debut of Jon Favreau's Iron Man back in 2008 (they've yet to make a film that has received a "Rotten" score on Rotten Tomatoes), and it would appear that Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok won't be breaking that streak.

Hulk speaking is the start to separating of these two individuals, these identities in this split-identity person, and where that's going to end up going.

Thanks in part to rights issues, Marvel aren't allowed to use the character like their other roster members, which is presumably why they've had to bring him into Thor: Ragnarok to adapt Planet Hulk (or part of it, anyway).

The 49-year-old star, who plays Bruce Banner/Hulk in The Avengers film franchise, inadvertently let the audio from the superhero movie kept playing at the event, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Perhaps Ruffalo's wrong and we will eventually get that solo MCU film for the character after all.
