Very interesting rumors for Avengers 2 and the Hulk (possible spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Movie websites exploded yesterday with the rumor that the "phase 3" for Marvel will include the Planet Hulk and World War Hulk storylines. Sounds pretty badass if you ask me. Planet Hulk has Hulk outcast to space where he ends up on a planet where he is sold into slavery and he eventually becomes King of the planet. Then he returns to Earth to battle the Avengers all Hulk-like. This would be pretty epic and sounds conceivable given how popular Hulk was in The Avengers.

"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"

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 would not mind being wrong

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.

I mean in terms of feature films. Word on the street is that DCs holding out on a Justice League movie until they see how "Man of Steel" performs at the box office.

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.

It's cool for comic book fans but comic book fans make up about 3% of the movies profits. Just being honest.

Each time DC/warner bros had a script for justice league its been scrapped. I still think its possible we may see a movie but it'll be harder to pull off than the avengers.

I think the success of The Avengers has caused a combination of panic and depression at DC.

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.

All of the hulk movies have been so bad that if they are going to do a solo film with him, it's going to have to be in a different setting slash different storyline

I'm more excited for Avengers 2 than anything else

I do think the finally got Bruce Banner right when they picked Mark Ruffalo.

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.

At first I was excited but now I don't think I like it. Theres just so many more storylines is for them to choose from. Not to mention that if you do this, you villify a side-whether that be Hulk or the Avengers and I don't think that's the right move. Not only does it just seem like a crummy way to go about things, it also doesn't make a lot of sense without the Illuminati. Can you see somebody like Cap agreeing to this? Thor? Not to mention a few other characters who are rumored to be on the roster by that time that don't seem to fit that MO.

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.
