Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige On Potential Hulk Movie
The Marvel President speaks on the possibility of a Hulk stand-alone film!
Kevin Feige On If There Will Ever Be A Hulk Movie!
Speaking with Indie Wire, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was asked about the possibility of a stand alone Hulk movie. Fans have been clamoring for a movie focusing on the big green guy since Mark Ruffalo's knockout performance as the character and his alter ego in 2012's The Avengers. Feige told them of the Hulk movie possibility, "I think that back and forth continues, and I don't know if it will ever happen. But I will tell you, it makes me very, very happy going from a world, ten years ago, when people were questioning the viability of Hulk in a standalone film, to getting asked every other interview, 'When will there be another standalone Hulk?'"
The question now is that if and when it happens what story will they tell with the character. His character journey has been great so far in both Avengers movies and that trend looks to continue in Thor: Ragnarok. Ruffalo also recently stated that his arc will continue in the next two Avengers movies. Before Ruffalo, Eric Bana played the role in the 2003 Ang Lee film Hulk, and Edward Norton portrayed the character in 2008's The Incredible Hulk. Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno, however, were the first to play Bruce Banner and Hulk in live-action in the 1970s TV series. The character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and first appeared in The Incredible Hulk #1 in May of 1962.
