Very interesting rumors for Avengers 2 and the Hulk (possible spoilers)
Posted 05 February 2013 - 10:44 AM
"So, according to the site's sources The Avengers 2 will set up The Hulk's next solo movie, with a third act or post-credits sequence that sees the Hulk blasted into space by the Marvel Cinematic Universe's version of the Illuminati, presumably after some kind of enormous rampage. Then, as as Phase Three gets underway, we'll see an adaptation of the comic book story Planet Hulk for The Incredible Hulk 2, which would see the Hulk conquering the planet Sakaar Gladiator-style, and lead to a World War Hulk adaptation for The Avengers 3 as Earth's Mightiest Heroes find themselves squaring off against an super-angry Hulk"
Here is the original source:

Unless they did it as a solo hulk movie I don't see it working
From Kevin Feige, Marvel's movie head honcho: "Planet Hulk is a cool story. World War Hulk is a cool story... Do I think Hulk can carry a movie and be as entertaining as he was in Avengers? I do believe that. I do believe he absolutely could. We certainly are not even going to attempt that until Avengers 2, so there is a lot of time to think about it."
sounds ambitious and daring, so i doubt its true

I agree it sounds ambitious and daring, but so was the whole Avengers plan to begin with. I only wish DC had as much balls as Marvel does.

Marvel had a vision and stuck with it. They planted the seeds for the Avengers movie all the way back to Iron Man 1 and it paid off with the 3rd highest grossing film of all time.

Not sure I like those storylines for big screen treatment.
Agreed. It would be better as a big budget ten-twelve hour series.

They know the odds against them pulling off a similar success are astronomical.
I think it's a mistake on their part to reverse the process (i.e. introducing the group before introducing the individual characters). Marvel did it the right way.
Since Marvel did it first - and did it so incredibly well - DC knows there's a good chance they'll wind up looking like little brothers / copycats no matter what happens.

I'm more excited for Avengers 2 than anything else

I wanted to like Edward Norton better because his "skinny nerd" persona best fit the physical image I've always had of Banner, but Ruffalo's nervous, twitchy, always-on-edge portrayal just plain worked in a way that I honestly can't imagine Norton duplicating.

There's also the fact that Robert Downey Jr Iron Man is one of Marvel's flagship guys rights now, and it's got a lot do with the fact that they've kept comic Tony Stark's jerkwad friend backstabbing douchiness out of the movies. Don't see a scenario where they turn him into the fink.
