Is Marvel Studios Planning a Planet Hulk Feature?

by SuperHeroHype

February 03, 2013

Although "Phase Two" of Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios' ongoing cinematic universe isn't set to begin until the May release of Shane Black's Iron Man 3, Latino Review is claiming to have learned some early details about what to expect from "Phase Three".

POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR AVENGERS 2 AND FUTURE MARVEL STUDIOS MOVIES!












The ending of Marvel's The Avengers 2, the site claims, will see Mark Ruffalo's Hulk lost in space and in a position where his next big screen solo adventure can follow the plot of Greg Pak's 2006 storyline, Planet Hulk. In that series, the Hulk finds himself a gladiatorial champion on an alien world.

The site also notes that the Marvel Cinematic Universe will offer their own take on the comics' Illuminati, a "secret order" comprised of Doctor Strange, Black Bolt, Charles Xavier, Reed Richards, Namor and Iron Man. Of course, the core structure of that group is very likely to change for the big screen, but, as in the comics, they will be responsible for the The Hulk's banishment into space.

From there, early plans are said to call for the Hulk to return in Marvel's The Avengers 3 for a revenge-driven World War Hulk adaptation.

Planet Hulk was previously adapted into a direct-to-DVD feature in 2010.

Following Iron Man 3 on May 3, "Phase Two" will include Thor: The Dark World on November 8, Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014 and Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014 before concluding with Marvel's The Avengers 2 on May 1, 2015. "Phase Three" will begin with Ant-Man on November 6, 2015 and, while no further titles have been confirmed, a Doctor Strange film is believed to be in the works as well.

Wow. If that's true, holy moley. Heck, if even half of it is true I'm excited. Planet Hulk was a good storyline, and World War Hulk on the big screen would be fantastic. Even though they'd have to alter it, it's good they're trying to think long term and have everything tie in.

That's about the only thing the first Avengers movie lacked:

An Iron Man/Hulk showdown. :twisted:

They'll get my $10 for that alone (of course, by the time Avengers 3 actually comes out, movie tickets will probably be closer to $20).

Mark Ruffalo Says Marvel Once Again Considering the Idea of Hulk Solo Film

SuperHeroHype

Jun 17, 2014

Ever since 2012's The Avengers, fans have been nearly begging Marvel Studios for one more go at The Hulk in his own solo film. Since then, the green behemoth himself, Mark Ruffalo, has expressed interest in a solo film, but has previously said there were no plans. Now, in an interview with Digital Spy, Ruffalo says the folks at Marvel Studios are warming up to the idea.

"I think they are, for the first time, entertaining the idea of it. When we did The Avengers it was basically 'No!', and now there is some consideration for it. But there's still nothing definitive, not even a skeletal version of what it would be. I look forward to going down that road, if we could crack that nut. I think the Banner/Hulk storyline is obviously not easy a tough nut to crack."

A team-up movie was suggested as a way of bringing The Hulk back with Ruffalo responding:

"If they do Iron Man 4 and Banner's in that, that would be great."

Ruffalo also promised in the video some "very cool" science bros. scenes in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron where he can next be seen as the giant green rage monster.

Mark Ruffalo Smashes Idea of a Planet Hulk Film

SuperHeroHype

Jun 30, 2014

Over a year ago, a rumor began to circulate that Marvel Studios was planning a "Planet Hulk" feature film for Mark Ruffalo to star in. It was quickly debunked by director Joss Whedon as "nonsense," but it just won't go away. Now, MTV sat down with Ruffalo and asked him if that particular storyline could sustain a film, which he seemed eager to dismiss.

"'Planet Hulk?' I don't think that's the way to go yet," he said. "I think you need more Banner. The whole thing is just him as Hulk, on a planet, fighting other gladiators."

Ruffalo has said very recently that Marvel Studios is considering another solo film for the giant green rage monster, but there's not even a "skeletal version" of what it could be.

Mark Ruffalo and The Hulk can next be seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron, which will hit theaters on May 1, 2015.

Kevin Feige and James Gunn Shoot Down Planet Hulk Rumors Once Again

SuperHeroHype

Jul 21, 2014

Ever since a rumor over a year ago popped up that claimed Marvel Studios was considering a “Planet Hulk” film for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many fans have become consumed with the notion of the film. Despite being debunked by Joss Whedon and The Hulk himself Mark Ruffalo, the rumor wouldn’t die and even lead some to speculate a Guardians of the Galaxy sequel could see The Hulk team up with that group in a crossover film. Now, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn have come forward to say, once again, that it isn’t happening.

“There are no plans for Planet Hulk anytime soon,” Feige told IGN. “I think what’s cool about the Planet Hulk story is it’s all Hulk. He’s a gladiator, he’s fighting all these creatures on another world. Yes, some of those creatures show up in (Guardians of the Galaxy), which makes people think, ‘Oh, maybe it could exist.’ And maybe it could exist, someday. I don’t think that’s the first place we would go though for the very reason that you stated, which is, if we were ever able to do a standalone Hulk movie, 60 percent of the fun would be seeing Mark Ruffalo leading a Marvel movie — and that’s what we would do if we ever went down that road.”

Gunn, on the other hand, was a little less reserved in his answer, telling The Playlist:

“It is absolute, 100% bullsh*t. It feels like a great relief to finally say this after all the dumb stuff on the Internet. There’s not going to be a ‘Planet Hulk’ movie, there was never going to be a ‘Planet Hulk’ movie, there was never a plan for the Hulk to team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy – I wouldn’t want the Hulk to team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy! And it’s all a bunch of complete bullsh*t.”

Ruffalo has said very recently that Marvel Studios is considering another solo film for the giant green rage monster, but there’s not even a “skeletal version” of what it could be.

The Guardians of the Galaxy will appear in their own film opening August 1 while Mark Ruffalo and The Hulk can next be seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron, which will hit theaters on May 1, 2015.
