Despite the fact that pretty much other Marvel character in existence will be in the upcoming movie, star Mark Ruffalo revealed to Italian site Bad Taste (via Coming Soon) that his character was cut from the final script.
"The reason is too great to be revealed in this movie ("Civil War")," Ruffalo said. "I was in the script but then they removed my character ... I don't even know if Hulk will be back soon."
In "Avengers: Age of Ultron," Bruce Banner/The Hulk decided to disappear, worried that he was a danger to his friends. Nick Fury hinted he'd gone to Fiji, but that seems silly. Director Joss Whedon would only tease that The Hulk's future is "too amazing."
Guess it's too amazing to unfurl in "Captain America: Civil War." As Ruffalo said of Bruce, "He's still missing, and it's unknown where he is. I thought that I would be in the film, but in the end, they evidently believed that the reveal of what happened to the Hulk was too big, and Marvel wants to save that information for later."
Well, that makes Fiji even less likely of a destination. Did Bruce go somewhere to tinker on some formula to control his Hulk-outs? Will he meet up with other Marvel Universe characters not in "Civil War"?
"Who knows, maybe the Hulk will never return," Ruffalo said. "They want to keep the revelation of what happened to him a secret, because it's something really big."
Sounds like it could be standalone movie time.
