Captain America: Civil War post-credits scenes won’t feature the early draft of Hulk’s appearance. One of the most certain highlights of a Marvel movie is its post-credits scene. It sets up the plot for future movies. However, not every scene shot makes the cut.
Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, writers of the Captain America: Civil War movie shared their opinion of why the need to eliminate Hulk arose during the early stages of their scripting process.
“We can clean that up quickly. Mark Ruffalo shot no scenes. He (Bruce Banner) has clearly gone somewhere after the end of Ultron, and that’s a story.” Markus said to Huffington Post.
He also mentioned that there was no need to stick people in the movie just for the sake of it. There is already a story of Hulk disappearing after Ultron and it was best to keep it that way.
McFeely also went on to rubbish the reports which claimed Mark Ruffalo making appearances on the set during filming of Captain America: Civil War. He explained that Ruffalo’s story was the case of a mistaken identity. John M. Pisani, unit publicist is often mistaken for Ruffalo and it was he who was partying with the movie crew.
Hulk wasn’t the only superhero to not make the cut in Captain America: Civil War. There were plans of including Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) in the movie. However, the team felt it best to leave the character develop in the Ant-Man franchisee than to force her in.
“It’s not that Wasp wouldn’t also have that opinion maybe, but we have not seen her be a hero at all, so that’s an example of where we think we’d be drinking someone’s milkshake.” McFeely added.
