Mark Ruffalo plays coy on World War Hulk rumors! In case you’ve forgotten, there have been quite a few World War Hulk rumors recently. Essentially there is supposedly a WWH movie happening, and that Marvel Studios can finally make a solo Hulk picture once more. Whilst I have yet to watch any episodes of She-Hulk, there are also rumors of Easter eggs that hint at a future World War Hulk story in the MCU. So at the recent premiere of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, ET caught up with Ruffalo and just asked him straight. Known for having a bit of a loose tongue, Ruffalo took a second to think of this answer.

“Anytime they wanna do it I’m here.”
The interviewer also asked Ruffalo about Secret Wars and whether it can top Endgame? However I’m pretty convinced at this point Ruffalo doesn’t have any solid details given his answer.
“Well it’s gonna be hard to top Endgame, But if I know Kevin, and I know Marvel, it’s gonna be pretty amazing and there’ll be a big bang, we’ll go out with a big bang.”
As a huge fan of Hulk, I absolutely want to see a Hulk focused movie. Given Hulk is one of the OG Avengers, the fact he’s had one mediocre movie is disappointing. I know there’s legal reasons for that, but it’s still an era of the MCU I feel needs more love. I’ll also be honest and say I hope that we revert back to rage Hulk at some point. I get why Professor Hulk was handy for Endgame and rage Hulk just didn’t work in Infinity War. However I feel for a solo project having Banner and Hulk be two separate entities provides more drama.
In a way I hoped that whatever made Jen into She-Hulk would also revert Banner back to his OG self. However we can already see by the trailers that’s not the case and again it seems Professor Hulk works better for this story, i.e. teaching Jen how to Hulk.

So what exactly are these World War Hulk hints as rumored online? Well, from what I am reading, Hulk’s son Skaar may show up looking for his father’s help. Professor Hulk perhaps cannot remember all that Hulk did on Sakaar prior to Thor: Ragnarok, like sleeping with someone I would guess? The rumors have been bolstered by a shot from the trailers for She-Hulk. The shot in question shows a Sakaarian ship showing up in Earth and causing Bruce and Jen to crash a car.
Whether this is true, and whether this is indeed a set up for World War Hulk I cannot say? Though the rumors of the movie being in development came from more than one well connected source. Plus, we do have many spaces left to fill on the current Marvel slate.
