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

23 posts in this topic

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.

So, they show off Thanos and then are like, nahhhhh, we want the Hulk!

That, to me, sounds incredibly unlikely.

Mr. Beaks from AICN claims his sources are saying Planet Hulk rumors are false.

"I couldn't get either source to spill on Marvel's specific plans for a standalone Hulk movie post-AVENGERS 2, but I'm told that Ruffalo-as-Banner will be an integral part of that film. After two false starts with Banner, Marvel is thrilled with Ruffalo. The last thing they want to do is reduce his role. Sure, they could have Ruffalo play Hulk in mocap, but the Banner element would be gone - and this evidently is important to Marvel." http://www.aintitcool.com/node/61195

El Mayimbe, the guy with the Planet Hulk rumors, is sticking to his sources and claims this is just disinformation from Marvel to divide the "fanboy websites".

Either way, it's exciting to know we should be in store for many years of badass Marvel movies.

I thought I read somewhere that RDJr was pulling the plug. That he was down to do this last Iron Man and a single Avengers follow up but after that he was moving on.

Wouldn't that kind of put an end to all of this?

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."

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, aside from DC coming off of literally the best comic book trilogy ever....

I'd be interested to read that, I have not heard that to date---but yea the whole thing would fall apart without him

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
