Many have wondered when exactly we will get another solo Incredible Hulk film. He hasn’t had one since 2008 and has even been re-cast since then. Many seem to forget that the Edward Norton film was a part of the MCU but as you already know, Marvel has no problems re-casting certain actors if they need to (Terrence Howard/Don Cheadle).
While sitting down with Yahoo! Movies, Mark Ruffalo explained that we might not see a solo Hulk film any time soon but that there is definitely a stand alone Hulk story in the upcoming films:
I’d love to do a Hulk movie, but that’s beyond my control. It’s controlled by Universal [Pictures]. Marvel doesn’t even hold the rights to it. So, it’s not on the horizon. And I don’t know if it will be. But we have worked a really interesting arc into Thor 3, Avengers 3 and 4 for Banner that I think will – when it’s all added up – will feel like a Hulk movie, a standalone movie.”
So there you have it. Universal owns the rights to a solo Hulk film (something some of us already knew) but Marvel is being clever with how they go about it.
