Though Mark Ruffalo's world-weary Bruce Banner appeared as recently as the post-credits coda to this summer's "Iron Man 3," his not-to-jolly green counterpart the Hulk last surfaced in "Marvel's The Avengers." Little over a calendar year, but for those audience members that went berserk for the green behemoth, it feels like a lifetime since Ruffalo got to cut loose. The pang of that absence is only accentuated by the reluctance of Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige to, ahem, greenlight a new solo feature for the character or even entertain the possibility. It's understandable given the Hulk's accumulated false starts with Eric Bana in 2003 and Edward Norton in 2008, but should the big guy be relegated to team-ups in Whedon's "Avengers" films, or does he deserve another shot in some hypothetical feature we'll call "The Indestructible Hulk"?
