‘Avengers 2’ Joss Whedon Calls Planet Hulk Movie “Mad Expensive” [MARVEL]
In Marvel’s Avengers, and Avengers 2: Age of Ultron, Mark Ruffalo plays Dr. Bruce Banner, who whenever angry turns into the Incredible Hulk. In the current MCU, Ruffalo is second actor to play Banner, behind Edward Norton. Fans of Ruffalo’s version of the character have long been hoping for a solo Hulk film. Marvel’s president of production, Kevin Feige, has previously teased a possible adaptation of the Planet Hulk story. However, Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon may have just smashed all hope of seeing Planet Hulk to little tiny bits. Whedon recently said a faithful adaption of the comic would be “mad expensive.”
While making the rounds on the Avengers 2: Age of Ultron press tour, Joss Whedon took a moment to discuss a solo Hulk film with IGN, stating:
“Hulk movies are very difficult because it isn’t a classic superhero story. It is more of a werewolf story, and finding a way to thread both of those makes if difficult. But I think it has more to do with the boring issues… because they love the Hulk and they love Mark as much as I do.”
Whedon went on to address the specific challenge of making a Planet Hulk film:
“It absolutely could be put on screen. I don’t know if it should. I think part of what makes the Hulk great is the world around him and the Banner of it. And it would be mad expensive as well. I think if they were going to do a Hulk movie, they’d want to keep it more grounded.”
