William Hurt Would Love To Play Red Hulk In Captain America: Civil War (Video)



While the Hulk wasn’t a part of the original Civil War Marvel Comics storyline, perhaps each side in the superhero squabble will have their own in the movie.

Mark Ruffalo is yet to be confirmed, but recently Robert Downey Jr. has been making hints about the inclusion of the Hulk actor in Captain America: Civil War, and with William Hurt announced returning as Thaddeus Ross, many fans online have been speculating about an appearance of the Red Hulk.

The WSJ caught up with Hurt and asked him about the possibility of the Red Hulk in Captain America: Civil War, which Hurt says he would definitely be open to playing.

Here’s the blurb:

“It’s very very different from the other [Incredible] Hulk. It’s really different. It’s done differently, and the style is completely modernized. So, I’m not playing the graphic novel version of Thaddeus Ross. I’m playing… a better suit.”

Regarding Red Hulk:

“I don’t know, I wouldn’t mind feeling like I had that much power. I created Thaddeus originally as an ego the same size as the monsters, with the same degree of messed-upness. Yeah, I’d love to have a shot at it.”

The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
