“The Hulk” has been given a few chances at blockbuster success and come up empty.
But after failed attempts from both Eric Bana and Edward Norton, a solid introduction to Mark Ruffalo’s mild-mannered Bruce Banner turned things around.
Now after much speculation, Ruffalo tells Digital Spy that Marvel is finally considering the green-eyed monster a third attempt.
“I think they are, for the first time, entertaining the idea of it,” he told Digital Spy. “When we did ‘The Avengers’ it was basically ‘No!,’ and now there is some consideration for it.”
Ruffalo added that it was not set in stone and certainly would not come before “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” but did offer, “I look forward to going down that road if we could crack that nut.”
Hulk will have to wait in line, what with the onslaught of superheroes waiting in the wings to hit the big screen.
Aside from 2016’s “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” introducing the team ahead of a “Justice League” feature, those characters will reportedly get spinoffs, along with “X-Men: Apocalypse” and any planned standalone films in that franchise.
