Could you imagine Hulk crossing over with Wolverine in a live-action Marvel film? Well, that’s exactly what Mark Ruffalo has wished for in a recent podcast with The Marvelists.
Ruffalo started his Marvel career with The Avengers in 2012, and like other characters, his onscreen portrayal does not require the physical specimen physic of the character but still, Ruffalo has established himself as the definitive version of the character.
Although his future with Marvel is still unclear, it’s very possible that he could remain as Bruce Banner after Phase 3. The next phase of MCU will shift the focus to different characters and will also have access to more characters once Disney completes its acquisition of Fox’s assets. If this happens, Ruffalo might get his wish, given Wolverine will be at Marvel Studios’ disposal.
He revealed more, saying that he has waited long enough to experience a confrontation between Hulk and Wolverine. Here’s what the actor said:
“Well, of course, there’s always the Banner-Black Widow combo, which I think is always a good combination. It’d be cool to see — I mean, people talk a lot about Wolverine and Hulk hooking up, I think that would be a really great combo.”

Unfortunately, Hugh Jackman won’t be returning as Logan. Although Jackman has earlier wished to return as Wolverine only if he gets a crossover with the Avengers, the chances of this happening seem highly unlikely. Marvel would also like to have a clean start to the X-Men once Disney’s acquisition of Fox is complete but as Marvel President Kevin Feige says, “Never say never,” we cannot completely rule out the possibility of a crossover between these actors’ characters.

As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Avengers: Infinity War is now on Digital and Blu-ray, while the Untitled Avengers 4 hits theaters on May 3rd, 2019.
