LOS ANGELES: Actor Mark Ruffalo says there are no chances of having another standalone movie for fictional superhero Hulk.

Various superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) like Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland) have had their standalone film series. 

However, Ruffalo said at Disney's D23 Expo on Saturday that Universal Studios has the rights for Hulk, so, there are fewer chances for MCU to have a standalone movie for the superhero.

"I want to just make one thing perfectly clear today: A standalone ‘Hulk' movie will never happen. Universal has the rights, and for some reason, they don't know how to play well with Marvel. And, they don't want to make money," Ruffalo told

Universal Pictures has maintained the rights to the Hulk ever since 2003 film "Hulk" starring Eric Bana and 2007 movie "The Incredible Hulk" with Edward Norton playing the lead role.
