Is The Hulk Movie Doomed?

The studios can't seem to agree on anything.

Actor Mark Ruffalo (who currently plays Doctor Banner) commented on the behind-the-scenes bickering that's keeping another solo Hulk movie from happening (via):
“Marvel and Universal famously don’t get along very well, and so that’s working against us, definitely. But I know for a fact that everyone is holding out hope that one day we can do it. But the nature of the relationship right now, it’s a little prohibitive... right now it doesn’t look particularly promising."
Because Universal still holds the distribution rights for the character, Marvel can feature him in the ensemble movies but they're not able to give the character a solo film. And in the meantime fans are feeling, well...
It's not really fair that some studio disagreements are keeping this beloved character out of the hands of those that really love him. On a scale of pink to very green, how angry are you?

@terrellhenry money talks when it comes to movies, and the true fan suffers. I'm all about Deadpool and I will be the first person there to see that movie. Unfortunately the true gets slighted

@TerrellHenry @LAVONYORK I can sympathize with Marvel not wanting another company to get the distribution- it's like someone else getting all the rewards for your work. Not fair. I'd be sympathetic with Universal (since obviously there's a lot of potential money there) if they were actually doing anything with it but it feels like they're just hoarding the character

@shannonl5 that's the thing, Universal isn't hoarding the character. They only have distribution rights. So it's really on Marvel to make something. They're the ones squatting on it. It would be an expensive movie though and having full rights means they get to make more of their money back.

@TerrellHenry that's a good point. And to be fair those movies are SO costly to make, when they flop it's painful for the studio
