William Hurt talks about General Ross in ‘Captain America: Civil War’

One of the great surprises that we have taken after the initial announcement of the cast that will be part of ‘Captain America: Civil War’ has been to see the name of William Hurt, who already played the General Thaddeus E. “Trueno” Ross on ‘The incredible Hulk’, in the cast. Now the actor has spoken about the changes that we will see in his character in this film that we will see in theaters in less than a year.

William Hurt es el General Ross

Apparently, according to William Hurt, we are going to see a very different General Ross than the one we last saw in ‘The Incredible Hulk’ in a bar dealing with Tony Stark.

I loved playing Ross the first time because I was able to create a character with an ego as big as the monster I was chasing. My character in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ is different because he has a different style, a more modern style. And what they’ve done is take the character that Ross was in the first movie and make a new version of him. Now he’s a new Ross, a very different Ross, and I love him. I haven’t had a lot of time to understand it, but I’m doing the best I can. And I haven’t been fired yet.

Be careful now, because there are those who might think that Hurt is not simply talking about superficial changes in the character or the status of the character, but perhaps he is giving us clues about the possible appearance of Rulk, also know as Red Hulk, the red gamma monster that General Ross became from the hand of Jeph Loeb a few years ago and that even today continues to be an active part of the universe Marvel in the comics.

Red Hulk Sideshow

Red Hulk appeared for the first time specifically in 2008, although we did not know that General Ross was actually hiding behind this name until later. In this way Ross ended up becoming the same thing he has always hated and persecuted and became part of different formations of The Avengers. What would you think if this aspect of the character was brought to the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Will we see in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ a Hulk on each side of the contest? Could this be the start of a whole family of Hulks on the big screen, just like it did in the comics?
