Mark Ruffalo Teases Hulk/Banner Relationship In ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

During the ending moments of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk flew away to an undisclosed location using a Quinjet. Ever since that happened, the character’s role had been shrouded in mystery, until we found out earlier this year that the Green Goliath will return in the third installment of the Thor Franchise, Thor: Rangarok. While promoting his upcoming film, Infinitely Polar Bear, Ruffalo spoke to AintItCoolNews about the character’s current state, as well as his future in the rest of Marvel’s Phase 3 films after he lost control of his powers once again in Age of Ultron. Here’s what the actor had to say:

He’s on the run. I think that we carry that through. It’s not just a matter of taking himself to some remote place and hiding. Now he’s removing himself from humanity altogether. I’m not sure where we’re going to head with that, but I’m sure that’s probably still very much alive within him.

So, is Hulk finally taking control of Bruce Banner? It sure seems like he is, especially after we saw him leaving everything behind at the end of Age of Ultron, since we don’t know whether it was Banner or the Jade Giant who made that decision. While this has happened before in the comics, we’ve never seen it on screen. Here’s what Ruffalo thinks about that:

Yeah, I think it is. I think it’s really exciting where we could go with it. Now I feel like we’re kind of in No Man’s Land. I mean, the comic books have kind of broached the subject, but we’re moving away from the traditional Hulk/Banner relationship. We’re starting to mess with it a little bit.

What do you guys think? Are you excited for the character’s return in Thor: Ragnarok? Let us know in the comment section below.
