In a new interview with MTV, Ruffalo spoke out on the decision, saying that he understands Marvel’s stance because they have already done everything they wanted to do with the character:
“I think they’ve done it. I think they feel that they’ve done that…I think they don’t really know where to go [with the character].”
So we have just gone from having either a “Hulk” television series or movie to having nothing at all? For someone who is a fan of how the Hulk was portrayed in AVENGERS, it’s sad to see Marvel drop a character the second they get it right. But who knows what could happen when Phase 3 comes around?
