Update: Marvel has confirmed William Hurt as General Ross For Captain America: Civil War.


While the Hulk has yet to be confirmed for Captain America: Civil War, it's possible General "Thunderbolt" Ross might be featured.

William Hurt, who played Ross in the 2008 Incredible Hulk movie, is said to have been spotted in Atlanta with the cast of Captain America 3.

Reportedly, Hurt may have had dinner at a local restaurant with some of the other actors.

However, it's unclear whether William Hurt was present as a blog mentions Hurt as being part of the cast - making it sound as if Hurt was at the dinner - but the blogger may have just grabbed Hurt's name from IMDb, which is not 100% reliable as it's a user-generated website.

The blogger also added he heard a big scene is planned for downtown Atlanta and that Robert Downey Jr. visited a local restaurant.

It's possible General Ross could be present in Civil War acting as a part of the government to take down the heroes, possibly even a part of Tony and Iron Man's side.

"Captain America: Civil War" has  a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.
