On 17 June, Mark Ruffalo revealed to the site Digital Spy that Marvel was considering a new film adaptation of the adventures of Bruce Banner and his alter ego.
In talking about it, Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk in the 'Avengers' film franchise, might just have convinced Marvel Studios to entertain the idea. Nothing is sure though, given Marvel's reluctance after the 2008 adaptation starring Edwards Norton flopped.
In 2008, Marvel launched a vast adaptation campaign of its comic book superheroes, including Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers.
Iron Man has been turned into three films, Thor into two, and the third film dedicated to Captain America is to be released in 2016. However, there is no new adaptation in sight for The Hulk aside from the second Avengers film, 'Age of Ultron', due out on 1 May, 2015.
Meanwhile, Marvel has scheduled the release of 'The Guardians of the Galaxy' on 1 August, and the adaptation of 'Ant-Man' is set for theatrical release on 17 July, 2015.
