Another Hulk Movie Is Possible, But Only After The Avengers 2

For Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, the sky is the limit in terms of what can be done with the company’s comic book properties.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase Two is set in place, and planning has begun on Phase Three, which means there is an opportunity for more superheroes to get their own standalone movies. MTV News recently chatted with Feige about the chances of, say, the Hulk getting his own flick now that Mark Ruffalo is portraying the character. Feige said it’s an idea that has definitely been tossed around.

“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,” he said. “We certainly are not even going to attempt that until Avengers 2. So there’s a lot of time to think about it.”

He continued, “Part of what’s fun about the way we played him in Avengers is the ensemble quality of it. I think the pathos and humor, most importantly, that Mark and Joss [Whedon] brought to it showcased a different element of Hulk that’s there in the comics, and was always inherent in his character. But when he was so brooding in his other two films, he didn’t get to have that wry sense of humor that Mark did such an amazing job performing.”

In terms of which storylines a Hulk movie could follow, Feige has a couple of ideas on his mind.

“I don’t think there’s a lot that we couldn’t do some day, as the cinematic universe continues to grow and expand and get as big as the comic book universe,” he said. “Planet Hulk is a cool story. World War Hulk is a cool story.”

With that being said, Feige added that not every storyline following the Hulk in outer space would work for a solo movie. “I think there’s pitfalls of continuity-overload, and mythology getting so dense that it almost collapses in on itself,” he said. “It happens every few decades or so in the comics. Apart from that, I’d say everything is on the table.”

    Ferrigno is the voice in Avengers 2 I wonder if he’ll do it for the hulk movie? THey have to have him in there somehow.

    Let’s see the Leader.  He was set up in the first flick, so we’ve been waiting to see what happens to him since 2008.

  • mel

    Ferrigno has done the voice for all the hulk movies.

  • David

    Except for the Avengers. His one line was clearly Ruffalo

  • Slartibartfatsdomino

    Different actor, though, please. I like Tim Blake Nelson, but I did not like him as the Leader.

    I am all for a Planet Hulk movie.  I’ve said this elsewhere, but I could easily see that story fitting in with the MCU.  In the midst of battle with Thanos, Hulk gets tossed abroad and ends up on Sakaar.  Hell the post credits scene of Avengers 2 (more likely 3) could show Hulk shaking the rubble off him from his landing, only to meet the gun point of a Death’s Head soldier.  Hulk as an intergalactic Gladiator would be awesome.  you could also tie this with threads form Thor and GoTG.  As for World War Hulk, I don’t know if we’d need that.  That story doesn’t seem compatible with the Hulk’s status quo in the MCU.  I could be wrong.  But I feel like WWH would almost be too much (as if PH isn’t?? I know).

     Agree, that line was completely Ruffalo.  The roaring was Ferrigno though.  And I’ll take it.  If they do another Hulk movie, they need to give Ferrigno a part of some kind (and I don’t mean a cameo).

    I don’t want the Hulk in space just yet. I would really like a Hulk vs. Monsters big powerful crazy  Kirby Monsters. Who damages others decide are his fault. Whatever mystery narrative you want to build around that visual is up to you but I think me and the public want to that.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing a live action She-Hulk while they’re at it.

  • Smartell511

    the incredible hulk: planet hulk and the incredible hulk: world war hulk would be a great 2 and 3

  • Guest

    If the Avengers battle Thanos in space in Avengers 2 or 3, they could have Hulk ‘lost in space’ somehow where he ultimately ends up on the “Planet Hulk” planet and go from there…

  • Peter David

    Maybe they could do a movie where the Hulk gets a job as a leg breaker in Las Vegas…

  • Convoy

    I would love a Joe Fixit story, but I think it would work better in a TV series.
