Marvel Studios is mere weeks away from kicking off its 2022 slate with Oscar Isaac's Moon Knight, the first MCU hero to debut as the headliner of his own Disney+ show. While the MCU is some time away from bringing back any heroes already with Avenger status, Moon Knight will feature a different kind of character in one of the MCU's darkest properties to date.

With such a short time until the show premieres, fans are starting to get an idea of what to expect from the MCU's first time putting Marc Spector into the spotlight. Isaac has shared how passionate he is about bringing this new power player into the story, which will hopefully lead to interactions with some of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in the foreseeable future.

As Isaac prepares for his first series as Moon Knight, some are already starting to picture what will happen when the star's character joins forces with some of the MCU's heavier hitters. Even more exciting is that he may be teaming up with one of those franchise stars sooner than expected.

The DisInsider Show shared that Mark Ruffalo will appear as Bruce Banner/Hulk in Marvel Studios' Moon Knight, which premieres on March 30.

"We know Moon Knight is coming out this month, but we have exclusively heard the Bruce Banner, Mark Ruffalo himself, will premiere in Moon Knight."

No specific details were provided about Brue Banner's role in Moon Knight, which would be his second appearance in the MCU's Phase 4 after popping up in Shang-Chi's post-credits scene.

Mark Ruffalo is already set to play a major role in Phase 4 of the MCU, continuing his run as Bruce Banner that started a decade ago in The Avengers. He already appeared in the mid-credits scene for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and he's set to play a key supporting role in She-Hulk, which also premieres on Disney+ later this year.

Ruffalo was seen in Budapest with Moon Knight lead actor Oscar Isaac while filming for the series was going on. Ruffalo quickly responded to the news by not wanting to spoil anything about his potential inclusion in the show, going no further than that on the subject.

With Bruce now taking on more of a leadership role with the Avengers, Marc Spector would certainly be somebody on his radar before too long following the events of Avengers: Endgame. It's unclear how big of a role Ruffalo would have should this rumor be true, but considering his status as an OG Avenger, his inclusion would be a major addition to the plot.

All that being said, it will only be a few weeks until Ruffalo's return as the Hulk is either confirmed or denied throughout the course of Moon Knight. Should it come to fruition, it would be yet another exciting team-up between heroes before fans see him take on his own Hulk-sized adventures later this year.

Moon Knight will debut on Disney+ on March 30.
