Will Mark Ruffalo get to play Bruce Banner / The Hulk in Captain America: Civil War? He wasn’t on the ‘official’ cast list that also excluded Samuel L. Jackson. The actor has said he hasn’t heard from Marvel about it… but he did hear from Robert Downey Jr.
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,” Ruffalo told HitFix. “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.
He will hopefully hear for sure soon as the movie has begun filming in Atlanta already. But then again they haven’t cast Spider-Man yet either.
Captain America: Civil War is set for theaters May 6th, 2016.
