In the last week, Marvel has been releasing teaser images for what is coming up in 2015. They had already announced another Secret Wars at NYCC followed by images which seemed to be re-visiting past popular storylines. Today, Marvel released a Planet Hulk teaser image although it seems to have nothing to do with the previous Planet Hulk storyline. It has a bunch of Hulk incarnations along with a Red Hulk and She Hulk along with Devil Dinosaur and Captain America holding his shield and a large battle axe. I guess we will have to wait and see if this is real or just Marvel having fun with us.

• DOC GREEN versus SKAAR versus…hmm. We don’t want to spoil it
• But were you worried Doc Green forgot about the GAMMA CORPS?
• Plus, an appearance by a very unexpected green-skinned member of the of the HULK family.
Marvel’s Animation panel at NYCC revealed that the Guardians of the Galaxy (who will be getting their own animated show in the near future) will be guest staring in an episode of The Incredible Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. See the description from Jeph Loeb below:
The episode begins with Hulk’s team lost in space, though Red Hulk points out that “Thanks to the Leader, everyone on Earth thinks we’re criminals — they don’t want us to come home.” They’re soon invited to meet the Avengers on a strange planet, but are promptly placed under arrest by Cap’s crew. A battle ensues. Just as things are calming down, the Guardians arrive.
Remember when they were holding the contest to determine which figures would be in the upcoming Infinity set of Minimates: http://www.incrediblehulk.me/2014/05/25/help-pick-the-incredible-hulk-for-the-next-toys-r-us-minimates-boxed-set-vote-now/ Well pictures from NYCC show that Armored Hulk was a winner! He looks pretty cool, will be glad to add another Hulk Minimates to my collection.
NYCC has become a huge con in only a few short years and the great thing about it is that Marvel Comics is right there so you get lots of Marvel news including toy news. The good news is that there was a few Hulk toy related items shown! Take a look at the descriptions and images below. That Hulk figure look very cool, can’t wait to get ahold of one of those.

The website Kotaku had an article on a guy in Thailand who makes statues out of automobile scrap metal and he has made an awesome Incredible Hulk figure. He actually made one previously but the latest one is simply amazing. I would love to have this piece standing in my yard.

“Marvel’s Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.” will return on Sunday, October 12 at 9:00 a.m. ET with an hour long premiere event! Looks like Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. aren’t through with the Leader when they find him stowed away on board their ship back to Earth, but payback is going to have to wait. They’re going to have to deal with Ronan the Accuser to save Ego the Living Planet first!

Rumor has it that the very first trailer for the upcoming Avengers 3: Age of Ultron movie will be shown before the movie Interstellar which will hit theaters November 7. Based on the trailers for Interstellar, it looks like a pretty good movie and this is just one more reason to go see the movie.
