Joss Whedon has admitted that it would “extremely difficult” to do a Hulk solo film.
Ever since Mark Ruffalo’s well-received turn in The Avengers, speculation has continued that Marvel would give the character another solo outing, and that speculation was increased recently when a report came out stating Marvel’s plans for Hulk and Phase 3 of the Cinematic Universe.
But Whedon – speaking to Geek Chocolate – has come out and expressed caution of such a project.
“Hulk is a tricky son of a bitch. He’s the Claudio of superheroes. Because the problem is it’s a very popular character, but it’s not a superhero. Half of it’s a superhero, half of it’s a werewolf. And you can’t structure it like a superhero movie, you can’t light it like a superhero movie. How do you develop that? It would be extremely difficult. The one thing you would have in your favour would be Mark Ruffalo. But right now I don’t know if they have plans to do that or not, because he works so well as part of a greater whole, but by himself, it’s tough. I don’t envy the guys who went before.”
Hulk is next expected to appear in The Avengers 2, scheduled for release on May 1 2015.
