William Hurt says General Ross will be very different in Captain America: Civil War

We’ll forgive anyone who forgot that the great William Hurt played General ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross in the 2008 MCU Hulk movie starring Edward Norton. But he did. And he’s coming back in Civil War.

Ross’ character was the father of Betty, Bruce Banner’s original love, and he is not happy about his daughter’s love for the man, but will that have changed all these years later?: “I loved playing Ross the first time because I was able to try and create an ego as big as the monster he was chasing. And one that was as warped too.

“Ross [in Civil War] is different because it’s a different style. It’s a more modernized style. And what they’ve done is they’ve taken a character who was the Ross from the older film and made a new version. This is a much newer Ross. A much different Ross. And I liked that a lot. I haven’t had a lot of time to understand it, but I’m doing the best I can. And they haven’t fired me yet.”

In the comics Ross becomes Red Hulk so we wonder if this means there’s any truth to the rumours of Red being in Civil War (here)?

What say you guys?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
