There's no Banner...
In an interview with MTV to promote his new film Begin Again, Mark Ruffalo shot down the idea that the next Hulk solo film will be based on the Marvel comics story "Planet Hulk".
Ruffalo said: " They launch Bruce Banner into space to try to get rid of him and the Hulk. He ends up freaking out, smashing up the spaceship, and it goes off course and ends up on this planet of gladiator creatures. He falls in love, has a Hulk baby … and then the Avengers nuke the planet. I don't think ['Planet Hulk'] is the way to go yet. I think you need more Banner. The whole thing is just him as Hulk, on a planet, fighting other gladiators."
The story was previously adapted into an animated film in 2010.
Whatever story they choose, it would be the third solo attempt at a Hulk movie after 2003 and 2008. The character will return in Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015.
