Mark Ruffalo on the foe Hulk needs for a stand-alone movie

Ever since The Avengers debuted two years ago, fans have been demanding: When is Mark Ruffalo going to get a stand-alone movie as the Hulk?

With Marvel Studios recently announcing a slate of seven untitled movies that spans into 2019, it’s possible we may get an answer to the question at Comic-Con this week.

If a Hulk movie isn’t among them, the answer is probably: Never. At least, not with Ruffalo in the lead, since he has been open about the fact that his own age, 46, starts to become a problem for a superhero—especially if we’re looking more than five years down the line.

Ruffalo follows Eric Bana and Edward Norton as the third actor to take on the character in recent years, and in an interview with EW, he weighed in on the possibility of starring in a solo Hulk movie.

The actor said he has been giving it a lot of thought (and we’re guessing he wouldn’t be doing that if it weren’t at least a possibility.)

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man will grapple with Hulk in Tony Stark’s ginormous “Hulkbuster” armor. But Ruffalo’s view of Hulk’s greatest foe is not what you might expect …

Is that her?

Casting Net: Jared Leto flirts with 'Brilliance'; Plus, Mamie Gummer may co-star with mom Meryl Streep, more

• Jared Leto, who won an Oscar for his work in Dallas Buyers Club, is in early talks to star in Brilliance for Legendary Pictures. According to Deadline, Leto met with director Julius Onah on Monday. Based on Marcus Sakey‘s novel, the film posits a world where a small number of the population are “brilliants,” which basically means they have extraordinary abilities.

'Begin Again' featurette: Keira Knightley on singing a happier tune -- EXCLUSIVE

Keira Knightley humbly insists she’s not a singer, but John Carney — the former bassist for the Frames who went on to direct the beloved musical romance Once – would never have cast a lead actress in Begin Again who couldn’t carry a tune.

In the new musical, Knightley plays Gretta, a heartbroken Brit stranded in New York after her hipster musician boyfriend (Adam Levine) gets rich and famous and cheats on her. Running on empty, she funnels her despair into one last sad song, a beautifully sung elegy that enchants Mark Ruffalo’s Dan, a washed-up music exec on the brink of personal disaster. Together, they try to answer the question that doubled as the film’s title when it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival: Can a song save your life?

In an exclusive featurette for the movie, which opens June 27 limited before expanding on July 11, Knightley explains why she needed a hopeful role like Gretta after five years of grim movies. The clip features the all-star cast — count ‘em, four Oscar nominees — but it’s the music that stands out most. Watch and listen below: READ FULL STORY

Begin Again, the summer musical romance from Once director John Carney, stars Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo as two wounded souls who connect in New York City. But the film also features two original coaches from The Voice, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green. Levine, making his feature-film debut, actually plays a crucial role as Knightley’s boyfriend, a good-looking hipster-folkie who gets blinded by fame and fortune when a few of his songs are used in the soundtrack of a popular movie. Green pops up as a version of himself; he helps Ruffalo’s washed-up music exec in his last-ditch attempt to turn Knightley into a star.

In the film’s new trailer, Levine sings a more radio-friendly version of the tune his girlfriend wrote for him, “Lost Stars.” READ FULL STORY
