Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk, previews ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’

While speaking with Entertainment Tonight at the She-Hulk: Attorney at Law premiere, Mark Ruffalo teased Avengers: Secret Wars.

“It’s gonna be hard to top Endgame,” the actor explained. “But if I know Kevin and I know Marvel, it’s gonna be pretty amazing … It’ll be a big bang. We’ll go out with a big bang.”

While Ruffalo didn’t confirm nor deny his involvement as the Hulk in Avengers: Secret Wars, he might know some information about the upcoming movie. However, the sixth Avengers film isn’t hitting theaters until 2025, so we likely won’t know the cast anytime soon.

In the meantime, fans can watch Mark Ruffalo reprise his MCU role as Bruce Banner/Hulk in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.

Which other Avengers besides the Hulk could appear in the MCU movie?

As we near the end of MCU: Phase 4, this universe is infinitely bigger than when the Avengers, including the Hulk, first assembled in The Avengers. So the casting possibilities are endless regarding Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars.

Some superheroes who might make up the team include the Hulk, Captain Marvel, War Machine, Captain America, Spider-Man, Ant-Man, Wasp, Doctor Strange, Wong, Scarlet Witch, Black Panther, Shang-Chi, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Kate Bishop, the Fantastic Four, and Ironheart. Of course, this is only a sampling of the heroes who could appear in the Avengers movies.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, starring Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, airs Thursdays on Disney+. And Avengers: Secret Wars will premiere in theaters on Nov. 7, 2025.
