With William Hurt reprising as General Thunderbolt Ross from The Incredible Hulk movie for Captain America: Civil War, some fans online speculated the Red Hulk might make an appearance.

Now in an interview with the Chinese press, Anthony and Joe Russo shoot down an appearance by the Red Hulk.

"There's always a chance in Marvel you could see anything, but let's say: There is no Red Hulk in Civil War."

The Russo's also offer a description of the role Ross will be playing in Captain America: Civil War.

"General Ross is a big presence in Civil War. He's a character who was ham-fisted in his approach in The Incredible Hulk. I think that's a polite way to put it. And I think he's learned from his over-aggressiveness in that movie and he's become more of a politicaian. He's much savvier now, and he's cornering the Avengers. Superheroes have always been anathema to him; he's not a fan of them. So now he's come at them strategically, by aligning the world against them and cornering them... I think you'll find he's grown as a character, he's different than he was in Incredible Hulk, and he's a more formidable, policital opponent to him."

"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, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.


Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
