Mark Ruffalo has let yet another cat out of the MCU bag, confirming that he will reprise the role of Bruce Banner/The Hulk for Captain America: Brave New World...

We can hear Kevin Feige yelling down the phone from hear.

Over the years, Mark Ruffalo has gained a bit of a reputation for letting the occasional detail about the MCU slip during interviews, and the Poor Things star was at it again while speaking about his career after being presented with the 2024 Santa Barbara International Film Festival American Riviera Award.

Though there were rumors that Ruffalo was set for an appearance in the movie, the actor confirmed that he will reprise the role of Bruce Banner/The Hulk in Captain America: Brave New World. He didn't provide any details, but this means we could potentially see the Green Goliath face-off against Red Hulk.

Unfortunately, Ruffalo also shared some bad news. While speaking about the possibility of another solo Hulk movie, the actor said he doesn't "want to burst anyone's bubble," but he's been told that it is definitely not going to happen.

When asked if "that's still the case" today, he replied, "as far as I know" - although he did add that he's "not really allowed to talk about it."

UPDATE: Variety is now claiming that Ruffalo "misspoke" when he said he'd be in Brave New World.

We recently got confirmation that additional photography has been scheduled right up until May or June, with Marvel enlisting Moon Knight writer Matthew Orton to pen new scenes and material for the film.

Reshoots are the norm (especially for major studio tentpoles), but this extensive period of AP has led to speculation that the studio might be making some significant changes to the story.

One rumor points to the movie's action sequences being the biggest issue, so it's possible these reshoots are simply to beef up existing scenes or add some new set pieces.

The fourth Captain America movie started shooting on March 21 at Trilith Studios, Atlanta, before moving to Washington, DC. The strikes previously impacted several other Marvel Studios productions, but we thought Brave New World had managed to avoid any significant delays until the film was pushed to 2025.

We've seen quite a few set photos do the rounds online, some of which featured members of the villainous group known as the Serpent Society. We also got a look at Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) suited-up in his new Cap costume, and Joaquin Torres (Danny Ramirez) sporting a fairly comic-accurate outfit as the MCU's new Falcon.

Anthony Mackie will reprise his The Falcon and the Winter Soldier role as new Sentinel of Liberty, Sam Wilson, and he'll be joined by Shira Haas as Israeli superheroine Sabra, Carl Lumbly as Isaiah Bradley, Liv Tyler as Betty Ross, and Tim Blake Nelson as The Leader.

Specific plot details are still under wraps, but rumor has it the story will see Samuel Sterns revealed as the "secret benefactor" behind the Serpent Society. What this will entail is not clear, but we assume he'll be funding the group and possibly providing them with tech.

Hulk and She-Hulk make sense. Especially with Red Hulk being a byproduct of She-Hulk's DNA. And Captain America recruiting She-Hulk would work for the New Avengers lineup that will get decimated by The Beyonder.
Vigor - 2/12/2024, 8:28 PM
@SonOfAGif - I really do hope they recruit she hulk and soon. Her personality is ripe for the team dynamics
lazlodaytona - 2/12/2024, 9:02 PM
@SonOfAGif - When I was a kid there was a Hulk animated series where they did an experiment to transfer/add to Bruce being able to control Hulk like his cousin. Right after the experiment Hulk snapped and a fight between the 2 ensued. Bruce eventually got control but later in the episode he lost control again.

If they didn't already do the s**tty 'smart hulk' thing that would have been cool to see on the big-screen. They fight, Bruce gets control, they team up against red hulk, but Bruce eventually loses control again.
FlopWatchers5 - 2/12/2024, 8:23 PM
oh yeah. grace was right. Cap, you got a hit on your hands. we just gotta sit thru one more trash year 🥴
lazlodaytona - 2/12/2024, 9:04 PM
@FlopWatchers5 - People will not be going to this film to see the new/lame/boring Cap. They'll want to see Hulk vs Red Hulk...hands down.
dragon316 - 2/13/2024, 3:26 AM
@lazlodaytona - I like his captain America it’s wings make it more intersting he can use in fight jokes with Bucky
dracula - 2/12/2024, 8:25 PM
So Sam’s first captain america movie is a Hulk movie
AmazingFILMporg - 2/12/2024, 8:26 PM
@dracula -


Unfortunately the interest isn't there anymore so a supporting cast is necessary. Not Sam's fault. I blame marvel for taking too long to give him a solo
Origame - 2/12/2024, 8:28 PM
@AmazingFILMporg - sounds more like they just shouldn't make a movie that has basically no interest.

What was that you said before about marvel learning?
lazlodaytona - 2/12/2024, 9:05 PM
@AmazingFILMporg - That and it's hard to go backwards after they've done so many team-ups already.
lazlodaytona - 2/12/2024, 9:06 PM
@Origame - First 2 Thor's sucked, so they bring in Hulk.
AmazingFILMporg - 2/12/2024, 9:53 PM
@lazlodaytona -


I love team ups. 💁
sully - 2/13/2024, 1:51 AM
@dracula - Marvel Studios has to shove Hulk in wherever they can because Disney doesn't have rights to a solo Hulk movie. Lol.
WhateverItTakes - 2/13/2024, 3:16 AM
@dracula - well we wouldn't want to watch captain falcon solo movie
harryba11zack - 2/12/2024, 8:26 PM
hopefully red hulk will kill him.
WhateverItTakes - 2/13/2024, 3:17 AM
@harryba11zack - he could get killed by a couple of thugs in a bar brawl
FlopWatchers5 - 2/12/2024, 8:26 PM
she hulk really set up wwh and bnw with some ground work by captain america and the winter soldier.

phase 4 HAD to do the heavy lifting. but it was worth it. see you soon captain 🫡🇺🇸
McMurdo - 2/12/2024, 9:32 PM
@FlopWatchers5 - world war hulk isn't happening. A solo hulk film isn't happening. Ruffulo just said as much.
Origame - 2/12/2024, 8:27 PM
Yes, because we really needed more dabs in this movie 🤣
ATrueHero1987 - 2/12/2024, 8:27 PM
Ahhhhhhh shooooottt!!! Hopefully we will see Hulk kick Red Hulk's ass(I really don't like Red Hulk).
FlopWatchers5 - 2/12/2024, 8:29 PM
also loving the contrast between civil war and brave new world. a non powered veteran wielding a stained shield, going against powers well outside of his handle.

the definition of being a hero.
HulkisHoly - 2/12/2024, 8:36 PM
Powerless captain America gonna need all the help he can get versus red hulk. Not trashing on Sam but it’s just the reality of it.
Ryguy88 - 2/12/2024, 9:18 PM
@HulkisHoly - nag, they'll just plot armor the [frick] out of him.
KaptainKhaos - 2/12/2024, 8:38 PM
Since they decided to remove the Serpent Society from the story I could care less about this movie
Godzilla2000Zer - 2/12/2024, 8:44 PM
Wish I was more excited but Im over Smart Hulk give me the nuclear option again.
Pathogen - 2/12/2024, 8:53 PM
Eh, He's kind of boring as hulk.
McMurdo - 2/12/2024, 9:33 PM
@Pathogen - 100%. Been that way since Whedon's Avengers
Saga - 2/12/2024, 10:33 PM
@Pathogen - he was just given some lame storylines, the Sakaar arc was the highpoint and Even then it was kind of a waste. Unpopular opinión but Ed Norton was way better as Banner
Arthorious - 2/13/2024, 8:26 AM
@Saga - I don’t think that’s an unpopular opinion; I think that’s in the majority: outside of The Avengers, Norton’s Banner and Hulk outshine Ruffalo’s.

"While speaking about the possibility of another solo Hulk movie, the actor said he doesn't "want to burst anyone's bubble," but he's been told that it is definitely not going to happen."

Yeah, [frick] this.
JFerguson - 2/12/2024, 9:07 PM
@Feralwookiee - I mean it makes sense following Iger's comments on focusing only on the profitable sequels and franchises. TIH was under Universal and was the lowest grossing MCU movie before the marvels, and She-Hulk is extremely divisive.

@Feralwookiee -


Universal holds the distribution rights. The best we can hope for is a hulk feature
HashTagSwagg - 2/12/2024, 9:05 PM
Norton was best Hulk

Ryguy88 - 2/12/2024, 9:16 PM
We must all remember, Mark Ruffalo is a low IQ person. He probably let it slip (again) and was later told to retract. What a dumb idiot.
AmazingFILMporg - 2/12/2024, 9:42 PM
@Ryguy88 -


Did he hurt your feelings because he leans politically left?


Why are you a snowflake?🤡


WhateverItTakes - 2/13/2024, 3:19 AM
@Ryguy88 - at this point his banner is low iq
Ryguy88 - 2/13/2024, 7:02 AM
@AmazingFILMporg - interesting that you chose to go the "your feelings are hurt" route when all I did was point out a fact.
marvel72 - 2/13/2024, 9:25 AM
@Ryguy88 - I love how he and his little circle jerk always complain about making comments political and that's his reply.
Ryguy88 - 2/13/2024, 12:57 PM
@marvel72 - I'm just surprised the rest didnt get tagged in.
