Another actor my join the cast of “Captain America: Civil War.” Mark Ruffalo, who has played the Hulk, recently told the Daily Beast that he might reprise the role for the forthcoming Marvel film.
“I was talking to Robert Downey the other day, and he said, ‘Ruffalo! I heard you’re coming out here,’ and I said, ‘OK! I’ll be there,’” Ruffalo said, when asked whether he would appear in the film. The actor said he has not read the script of “Captain America: Civil War,” but hopes to join the cast anyway.
Ruffalo said he relishes the experience of Marvel films. “I like the cultural significance of it, as an art project. It’s crossing into all kinds of cultures and belief systems and ideologies. It’s hitting a lot of boxes, and really specialized boxes, too. And ultimately, the messaging of it is pretty good,” he said.
Rumors of Hulk popping up in “Captain America: Civil War” have been ripe for a while. A cryptic tweet from Ruffalo last month only inspired more rumors. He wrote:
