Except everybody absolutely loved The Hulk in The Avengers and want to see a Hulk movie starring Ruffalo now.

The notion of The Hulk literally being a separate being from Bruce Banner isn't exactly the purest and most "real" interpretation of the character. A lot of comics treat it as one person with a personality disorder.

Also that interpretation is just straight up better. The Hulk as a personality disorder is a powerful statement about the human condition. The Hulk as a literal other person who just sometimes swaps places with Bruce Banner is just kind of meaningless. It doesn't say anything about anything, it's just a guy who's brain is haunted.
