Mark Ruffalo is telling Avengers 2 fans not to worry.
Recent rumors surrounding Avengers 2 have pointed to the film possibly being canceled due to contract negotiations. Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth have all been reportedly demanding more money to be in further films, and with Robert Downey Jr. being a major earner to begin with, it could be a big gamble on behalf of Marvel Studios to go ahead with the film.
However, Mark Ruffalo has recently stated that we shouldn’t panic about Avengers 2 and its contract negotiations. He says nothing has changed yet, except more money is being demanded all around. Mark Ruffalo says in regards to whether or not he would be back for the film, “I assume so. I haven’t been let go yet. ..I’m signed for — oh my gosh — six movies altogether. Five now [after The Avengers].”
Considering the character Mark Ruffalo plays in The Avengers, it’s ironic that he’s the one telling the fans not to panic. The fans are more likely to “Hulk out” than he is, apparently. The actor behind the green rage monster added, “I don’t even think anyone’s really started negotiating yet.”
Mark Ruffalo laughed off the panic idea concerning contract negotiations, “Maybe people should panic, but I don’t see a reason to panic.”
Considering Disney, who now owns the Marvel films, is obviously not hurting for money, it seems unlikely that the cost is an issue. However, Avengers 2 still has to turn enough of a profit to make it worthwhile to everyone involved, and if everyone is expecting more money and the film doesn’t do well, it could be a major mistake.
Anyway, speculation aside, Mark Ruffalo has told us that contract negotiations have barely even started and we can all just relax. Avengers 2 may still be coming along smoothly, so unless you’re Bruce Banner, there’s no reason to be angry at this point.
