Mark Ruffalo would like to see an eco Hulk movie

January 20th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Mark Ruffalo who’s returning as The Hulk in Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron next year,  was at the Sundance film Festival talking about Infinitely Polar Bear. He spoke briefly about a Hulk solo film and told Total Film that if Marvel were to make a new Hulk movie, he would like it to use his art and fame to spread a more eco-friendly message:

As artists we have an ability to reach a lot of people in a deep way, and we have a responsibility. What we have to do as storytellers is to take science and make it relatable. I think we have to tell the story of the positive and what we’re going to try to do. Give them alternatives but don’t make it a polemic.”

When asked on how he could apply that kind of message to bigger studio movies like The Avengers:

“I think that’s the way to go, and it’s a trend that’ll start to develop. As a culture, when we latch onto a fad, we’re actually working something out in the creative subconscious. The fact that all these doomsday and end-of-times movies are coming out is because we’re actually working that out in the culture.”

“I’m in The Avengers, but if you took my screentime it would come to about ten minutes, along with the 12 other people I’m sharing the screen with, so my input’s kind of limited on that. But if we get to a standalone Hulk movie, I’ll have a much better chance to do that. I’m just learning now how to find my voice and bring it into the studio world.”
