Looks like the Hulk will be sticking with his superhero friends, for now.
Mark Ruffalo -- the most recent actor to portray the green-skinned Marvel hero -- took to Twitter to answer fans who have been wondering if they'll see Bruce Banner in a separate, standalone film outside of the upcoming sequel to "The Avengers":
A lot of folks have been asking about the Next Hulk. The next time you see my Hulk it will be in the Avengers2. No plans for stand alone.-- Mark Ruffalo (@Mruff221) March 7, 2013
I am not giving up on another stand alone HULK. But it's not in the works right now. One never knows what the future will bring.-- Mark Ruffalo (@Mruff221) March 7, 2013
The 45-year-old Ruffalo is the third actor in the last 10 years to play the Hulk on the big screen.
Eric Bana starred in Ang Lee's 2003 "Hulk," which became a box office dud. Edward Norton then took on the role in 2008's "The Incredible Hulk" -- which fared better than its predecessor with critics and audiences -- before eventually being replaced by Ruffalo for Joss Whedon's "The Avengers," the highest-grossing film of 2012.
For now, it looks like Hulk fans will have to wait to see him again until.
Ruffalo will next be seen in the Morgan Freeman thriller "Now You See Me," out June 7.
