Currently, Marvel fans are still waiting to hear if the birthday boy will be appearing in the MCU again. Ruffalo is only officially signed on for Disney+'s upcoming animated series, What If... However, that does not mean he wants to stop being the Hulk, who he first played back in 2012's The Avengers. In fact, he previously hinted that there is a chance he'll show up in Disney+'s She-Hulk series. He even welcomed Tatiana Maslany, who was supposedly cast in the titular role, to the family. (However, Maslany recently denied the reports.)
Earlier this year, Ruffalo also shared some potential standalone Hulk film ideas. At the beginning of March, before the pandemic shut everything down, Ruffalo was in Chicago for C2E2 and did a panel where he talked all things Hulk. He even revealed he'd like to make a Professor Hulk movie.
2020 now officially marks the first year since 2009 that the Marvel Cinematic Universe will have not released a new movie. Marvel's current updated release schedule sees Black Widow dropping in theaters on May 7, 2021. It is followed by Eternals on November 5, 2021, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on July 9, 2021, Spider-Man: Homecoming 3 on November 5, 2021, Thor: Love and Thunder on February 11, 2022, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness on March 25, 2022, and Captain Marvel 2 on July 8, 2022. Disney+ recently pushed The Falcon and The Winter Soldier to 2021 and recently announced WandaVision will be arriving on the streaming service in January.
