Thor: Ragnarok will be the first full length movie to feature Hulk speaking. According to Mark Ruffalo who plays both the Hulk and Bruce, fans will get to see the Hulk continue to evolve upcoming Marvel films.
CinemaBlend spoke with Mark Ruffalo recently and the actor discussed how he and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige envision the continuation of Hulk’s story.
“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.’ And he’s like, ‘I love that. Why don’t we do that in the next three movies, starting with Thor 3 and then we go into Avengers 3 and 4.’ And I was like, ‘That sounds great!’ And so we are at the beginning of this arc.”
Though Marvel has previously stated that there would not be a stand alone Hulk movie, seeing the character become more intelligent of the course of the next 3 movies would amazing.
“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. So it was really interesting to me. He’s like a baby! He’s like a five year old or six year old. So he has the same syntax, he has the same world view, and so it was fun. It’s like Chris [Hemsworth] — we all got to reinvent our characters in this.”
Thor: Ragnarok will be in theaters on Nov. 4th. Check out the Hulk battling Thor in latest Thor: Ragnarok clip.
