Marvel Cinematic Universe star Mark Ruffalo has responded to the rumors that his character, The Incredible Hulk, will appear in Oscar Isaac’s upcoming series, Moon Knight.
Since the events of Avengers: Endgame, only two of the team’s original members remain. The two are Chis Hemsworth’s Thor and Mark Ruffalo’s Incredible Hulk. Thor is currently set to appear in Thor: Love and Thunder while Hulk appears to be maintaining supporting roles in various Marvel Cinematic Universe projects. We know for sure that the character will be appearing in the upcoming She-Hulk series for Disney Plus but he may also be appearing in another project for the streaming service.
Earlier today it was revealed that Mark Ruffalo was in Budapest, Hungary where a fan took a picture with him. Later that day, that same fan grabbed a picture with Moon Knight star Oscar Isaac as the series is currently filming in the city. This quickly lead to speculation that Mark Ruffalo may be appearing in Moon Knight but so far nothing had been confirmed or denied.
Earlier today, Mark Ruffalo personally responded to the rumors but didn’t reveal anything one way or another, citing a desire not to spoil anything:
In the comics, Marc Spector, a.k.a. Moon Knight, was a CIA agent-turned-mercenary making millions. During his last mercenary job in Cairo, Spector was left for dead by a former colleague.
Spector dragged himself through the sands of the desert to the tomb of Konshu, the Egyptian moon god. There he was pronounced dead but resurrected at the hands of Konshu. The resurrection took a toll, however, as he developed multiple personality disorder. When he returned to New York, he created two new personalities — Steven Grant and Jake Lockley. Grant was the millionaire womanizer while Lockley was a cab driver.
It was after developing his other personalities when he took on the mantle of Moon Knight. Konshu granted Spector with increased physical capabilities and periodic prophetic visions at night, yet even Spector himself was unsure whether Konshu was yet another personality of his own creation. Even still, Moon Knight operates with an arsenal of technology, vehicles, and costumes to suit his needs.
