Mark Ruffalo Speaks on Reprising The Hulk

After MCU completed its third phase and ended the Infinity Saga, Marvel fans were left wondering what would happen to their favorite heroes. While we know Chris Evans (Captain America) and Robert Downey Jr. (Ironman) will not be returning to MCU, fans still want to know what will happen with characters like Thor, Scott Lang, and Bruce Banner. Thankfully, Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk) has offered fans some insight into what his character may be doing in Phase Four.

 

 

In an interview with Variety, Ruffalo revealed that he is more than open to coming back as The Hulk and there are a few opportunities to do so. Ruffalo specifically referenced the She-Hulk TV series, stating that “there’s some talk of having Banner/Hulk show up in [the Disney Plus series] ‘She-Hulk.’” That makes complete sense, seeing that Banner has an extremely important role in turning Jennifer Walters into She-Hulk and the characters are related (Walters is Banner’s cousin).

Ruffalo also opened up about wanting a solo movie. Unlike the previous actors who played The Hulk, Ruffalo never got his chance to play the big guy in his own movie. The new element of Professor Hulk, as seen in Avengers: Endgame, can also add an interesting twist. Imagine a movie where The Hulk is a celebrity and a teen icon. It would be amazing. Add the fact that most people don’t even remember The Incredible Hulk movie from Phase One and it only seems right that Ruffalo gets the chance to star in his own Hulk movie.

Hulk fans everywhere can only hope that Marvel goes through with these plans. A new Hulk movie, a part in She-Hulk, anything really. Everyone needs a little more Hulk in their life.

Disney’s ‘Cruella’ Announced Right Before Dog Day

Why Disney, why? It might be a coincidence, it might not be, but it’s still cruel of Disney to release an image of Emma Stone as Cruella de Vil two days before International Dog Day!

 

 

I get it, I understand, D23 Expo is most certainly one of the places to announce new content, and Disney was busy pumping out show after show, from She-Hulk to the High School Musical series, but did they have to announce this new live-action remake right before International Dog Day?

 

 

Maybe they did it because they knew someone would write an article about it.

With Disney pumping out live-action remake after live-action remake, you might be getting sick and terrible of them all, but this one might just be a little different.

Following in the footsteps of Disney’s 2014 Maleficient―which starred Angelina Jolie as the evil fairy from Sleeping Beauty―in focusing on an origin story for one of the franchise’s villains. It was a good move, especially considering Maleficient is getting a sequel.

The position is one that Disney has forced themselves into. Before this new wave of live action remakes, we had a live action remake of The Jungle Book in 1994 and a live action remake of 101 Dalmatians in 1996. Both received lukewarm reviews and had a small gross, enough to warren a live action sequel 102 Dalmatians (not related to the straight-to-video animated sequel 101 Dalmatians II: Patch’s London Adventure), but didn’t make enough to warrant a wave of live action remakes.

Of course, The Jungle Book was remade again in 2016, but both that version and the 1994 version strayed far enough from the original Disney movie, and both strayed incredibly greatly away from the Rudyard Kipling novel.

 

 

What what could you add to the original 101 Dalmatians movie? This is the position Disney finds themselves in, and thus they’ve decided on a prequel. It’ll be tough, given the original Dodie Smith novel doesn’t give us much in terms of backstory for Cruella.

Details are scarce about the project, but maybe with this Maleficient-style prequel, we’ll get a nice Cruella de Vil who isn’t mean to puppies. It worked for Maleficent, where they convinced audiences around the globe that a person whose named literally means ‘evil’ wasn’t all that, so maybe they can convince us that a person with a name that sounds an awfully lot like ‘cruel’ isn’t all that bad.

Maybe then I can forgive them for announcing this news so close to International Dog Day.
