As of a few days ago Mark Ruffalo was uncertain about having any involvement in Marvel’s upcoming Captain America: Civil War. But now, in a brief chat with HitFix, the actor sounds much more confident about his Bruce Banner making an appearance in the film.
According to the actor, Tony Stark himself has told him that he and his Hulk were going to get in on the fun in Civil War. “If Robert Downey, Jr. says I’m in ‘Captain America,’ I’m in ‘Captain America’ dammit,” he tells HitFix. The thing is, Downey is the only person that’s told him this. The actor has received no official word. “And I will wait for the day that my call sheet shows up at my doorstep or my script,” Ruffalo added. “At this point, I’m told that I’m in it by Robert, which I’ll take as biblical, but I just haven’t heard or seen from production yet.“
Though, really, with Downey Jr’s clout at Marvel Studios it seems like a safe bet to take his word for it.
If Ruffalo does suit-up…err…Hulk-up for Civil War, he would be the latest in a long line of Avengers to be part of the Marvel epic. We already know to expect Don Cheadle’s War Machine, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye, and Paul Bettany’s Vision to get in on the fun when RDJ’s Iron Man and Captain America (Chris Evans) have a minor disagreement over whether or not Suicide Squad is going to be any good.
Captain America: Civil War (aka “the movie where Spider-Man is supposed to make his debut into the MCU, but we’re having trouble casting him. Don’t rush us, damn it. Why’d you have to spill the beans, Asa? Why?!”) comes out on May 6, 2016.
