Avengers star Mark Ruffalo revealed that he’s spoken to Kevin Feige about seeing Hulk take on Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Ruffalo appeared at Tokyo Comic-Con and revealed that he’s had recent conversations with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige about his future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “Kevin Feige just asked me last week if I had any more ideas or stories for the Hulk,” Ruffalo said. “And I said yeah, I think there’s still some stories to tell. And he said, ‘Well why don’t you come in and tell me about them and we’ll see if we can find a place for you in the Marvel universe?’”
At least one of those ideas involves one of the characters Marvel reacquired through The Walt Disney Co.’s purchase of 20th Century Fox. “Hulk vs. Wolverine,” Ruffalo said. “I’d like to see that. Hulk vs. Wolverine.”
Although the matchup might seem surprising to MCU fans, they have, in fact, crossed paths numerous times in the comics. In fact, Wolverine fought The Hulk and Wendigo in his first appearance in Len Wein, Roy Thomas and John Romita Sr.’s The Incredible Hulk #181 in 1974. While the character is most closely associated with X-Men, a crossover of this caliber could prove lucrative for fans of both franchises.
