What we don't know is if this applies to all Hulk-related characters; could She-Hulk, for example, get her own movie (please)?

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige may keep hope alive for a standalone Hulk movie - he most recently said "never say never" to the question - but Mark Ruffalo won't. The image, created by Marvel's in-house artist Andy Park, was released by Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures at the ongoing D23 Expo, Disney's mega fan event, here.

Fellow Marvel actor Don Cheadle, who plays James Rhodes/War Machine/Iron Patriot in Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Captain America: Civil War, stood beside Ruffalo and helped cushion the blow of his statements.

"You're too old now", Don Cheadle shot back. So that's really probably the reason.

Of all the comic book characters that feature in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's arguably the treatment of The Hulk that makes the least sense. "And, they dont want to make money", Ruffalo said.

"I just want to make one thing perfectly clear today: a standalone Hulk movie will never happen".

This icon of popular culture was the focus of the second instalment in the juggernaut franchise - 2008's The Incredible Hulk - but has essentially been relegated to the status of supporting role ever since.

A new poster of the upcoming superhero movie Thor: Ragnarok, in which the Asgardian god is seen battling it out with The Hulk, has been unveiled. But I feel like I have two or three years before I'm too old to play the Hulk.
