Mark Ruffalo recently teased that Robert Downey Jr. said he heard the Hulk actor was coming out to the set of Captain America: Civil War, and now Ruffalo states his science brother buddy has said he is in the movie.

Mark Ruffalo recently spoke with HitFix where Ruffalo offers Robert Downey Jr. told him he is in Captain America: Civil War.

"If Robert Downey Jr. says I’m in Captain America, I’m in Captain America, dammit,” Ruffalo said. “And I will wait for the day that my call sheet [or my script] shows up on my doorstep.” 

As Mark Ruffalo mentions, he hasn't been officially told by Marvel (at least that we know) whether or not he is in the movie, but Mark Ruffalo seems pretty confident the Hulk will appear.

"At this point, I'm told that I'm in it by Robert, which I'll take as biblical, but I just haven't heard or seen from production yet."

While we do wait for the official announcement, a hint that the Hulk may be appearing comes as a result of the inclusion of William Hurt, who will be reprising as General Thunderbolt Russ from the 2008 Incredible Hulk movie.

"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.
