It’s official: Mark Ruffalo will return as Bruce Banner / Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok,  directed by Taika Waititi.

At this moment the details are unclear about The Hulk’s part in the movie, and their interaction in the Avengers movies was minimal, but – in MCU we trust.

Thor: Ragnarok is scheduled for November 2017 release.

My character was inserted into the script, but it was later removed.

The actor told Italian film site Bad Taste that Marvel decided to cut The Hulk from the upcoming Avengers reunion, Captain America: Civil War, that will feature almost all of the Avengers with the addition of Spiderman for the first time in the MCU.

I believed that [Hulk] would be in the film, but at the end, it was evident that they needed to reveal that the Hulk did something very significant, and that Marvel wanted to use this in a more upfront [manner]. […] My character was inserted into the script, but it was later removed. Who knows, maybe Hulk will never return.

However, [Marvel] want[s] to keep the revelation of what happened a secret, because it is something truly significant.

As if the new Captain America 3:Civil War doesn’t have enough guest Avengers already, it looks like there are more.

Mark Ruffalo, who still doesn’t have his own solo Hulk movie, was spotted on the set of Civil War.

“Since this week, US superstars Chris Evans (34), Mark Ruffalo (47) and Anthony Mackie (36) along with fellow actor star Daniel Brühl are shooting the third part of Captain America in Berlin,” reports a German outlet.

This now-more-than-a-theory is backed by the surprise casting of William Hurt as General Ross from the long forgotten The Incredible Hulk. At the end of The Incredible Hulk, Ross is approached by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), which makes him a legitimate, though unexpected, member of the MCU as we know it. Red Hulk anyone?
