The film that will officially kickstart Phase Three of Marvel’s Avengers Initiative is crammed to the brim with familiar characters. Captain America: Civil War‘s central plot line lies with the title character at odds with his fellow Avenger Iron Man, regarding whether heroes should act as representatives of the U.S. government in times of extreme conflict and several characters will be dragged into this spat including Black Widow, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, Ant-Man etc. Captain America: Civil War‘s roster seems to look as full as it gets, but it appears the highly anticipated superhero adventure has room for one angry green giant: Mark Ruffalo appears to be on board as Bruce Banner/Hulk.
If Robert Downey, Jr. says I’m in ‘Captain America,’ I’m in ‘Captain America’ dammit. And I will wait for the day that my call sheet shows up at my doorstep or my script. At this point, I’m told that I’m in it by Robert, which I’ll take as biblical, but I just haven’t heard or seen from production yet.
If the rumors about William Hurt reprising his role as General Thunderbolt Ross are true, then it stands to reason that Hulk has a reason to be in this movie. Since Mark Ruffalo isn’t getting his own Hulk movie anytime soon, it makes sense to feature his character in as many movies as Marvel can.
