New Hulk Movie On The Way?5.02.13 # News # 5 Comments
Green giant will reportedly get fired into space at the end of Avengers 2.
The first two attempts at a Hulk movie might have disappointed, but since Mark Ruffalo breathed new life into the Bruce Banner role in Avengers, there’s word that Marvel Studios wants to give the big guy another solo outing.
According to Latino Review, Marvel wants to adapt the 2006 comic story Planet Hulk – which sees Hulky getting fired into space – in the second Avengers movie.
The site claims that Avengers 2 will include a post-credit sequence that bridges it to a standalone Hulk movie, with Bruce getting launched star-ward after he’s deemed too dangerous for planet Earth.
The solo movie will see Hulk off to wreak havoc on the alien planet of Sakaar, based on the Planet Hulk comic storyline. This will then link to Avengers 3, where Hulk will bring his new pals to Earth to take revenge. We wouldn’t be surprised to see a cheeky little link to Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, too.
Take all of this with a pinch of salt – nothing has been confirmed – but it’s a plausible direction for the series to go. And after Ruffalo’s brilliant turn as the green giant in Avengers, we’d love to see him have a crack at going solo. Third time’s a charm, eh?
Avengers 2 hits UK screens May 1 2015.
