Joss Whedon On The Challenges Of A Solo HULK Movie

Director Joss Whedon discusses the difficulties of adapting the Hulk for a solo film. He also acknowledges that there are currently no plans for a solo outing but highlights Mark Ruffalo as a definite asset.




Joss Whedon is continuing the European festival circuit for Much Ado About Nothing. After stopping at the Dublin International Film Festival, Whedon next attended the Glassgow Film Festival and answered more Marvel related questions during the post-film Q&A session.

Question: You think it would be possible to make a good Hulk film?

Joss Whedon: Yes. But it would be very, very hard. Hulk is a tricky son of a bitch. He’s the Claudio of superheroes. Because the problem is it’s a very popular character, but it’s not a superhero. Half of it’s a superhero, half of it’s a werewolf. And you can’t structure it like a superhero movie, you can’t light it like a superhero movie. How do you develop that? It would be extremely difficult. The one thing you would have in your favour would be Mark Ruffalo. But right now I don’t know if they have plans to do that or not, because he works so well as part of a greater whole, but by himself, it’s tough. I don’t envy the guys who went before.

Still on Joss' schedule is a stop at SXSW in Texas for Bellwether Pictures' first film project. At this screening, Whedon should have a lot more of the cast accompanying him so prepare for Nathan Fillion Ant-Man questions, and attempts to get Alexis Denisof to identify who 'The Other' really is. I should also end this with the caveat that the above quote from Joss really has no bearings on the World War Hulk scoop from Latino Review as any traction on that project would commence years from now and there probably isn't anything happening with it at the moment.
