Marvel has released some GIF images in relation to the upcoming Legacy storyline that will see classic versions of their characters come back (Come on back Bruce Banner and the original Hulk!!!!!!). They are taking classic covers and re-imagining them. For the Hulk, they took a Ladronn Planet Hulk storyline and Mike Deodato did a cover with the Cho-Hulk. There were also a couple other covers for that took a classic Hulk cover.
Click on each image to see the original and the new covers.
Minimates is releasing a 4-pack for the Thor Ragnaork movie which will feature a new Bruce Banner figure. Surprised they are not doing a Gladiator Hulk figure but maybe that will be with a special set maybe?
We don’t know what they look like yet but we know their shape! Marvel Select will be releasing a Gladiator Hulk and Gladiator Thor figure for the upcoming Thor Ragnarok movie. Each figure features 16 points of articulation and includes weapons seen in the film. They are up for pre-order at bigbadtoystore.com so go put an order in now!
Friend of the site Eagle eye Jeff spotting images of the Hallmark Christmas ornaments this year which will include Thor and Hulk from the upcoming Thor Ragnarok movie. Have to say the Hulk ornament looks pretty dang cool. It’s also the first real good image of the Hulk, showing some of the war paint that is included on his body.
At the Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Australia, Marvel was having a showing with various props including a number from the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok movie. One of those includes the Hulk’s bed while he is on the planet Sakaar and it appears to be the bed of a champion! Looks awesome, like it was made out of the skull of some creature. What are the odds of me convincing my wife to get one of these for our bedroom?
As my friend Jeff pointed out, the other Lego set for the upcoming Thor Ragnarok movie also features a Hulk figure, kinda. The Ultimate Battle for Asgard set includes a Bruce Banner figure. I really never thought Lego would make a Bruce Banner figure. But I approve.
Not sure what the Speed Energy means but I won’t argue with another Hulk Minimates figure, this one an exclusive at Walgreens. My local store never got it so I ended up getting it off the ‘Bay. Looks cool and it glows in the dark!
Looks like Marvel is bringing back a lot of classic versions of their heroes and thankfully that includes the original Incredible Hulk. Looks like current Hulk writer Greg Pak will be writing the one-shot with art by Matteo Buffagni. I for one will be glad to have the original Hulk back in comic, I’ve missed him.
We have the first official image of the Thor: Ragnarok Lego set for the Hulk vs Thor and it looks awesome!!! Can not wait to get a Planet Hulk Lego figure, something I never thought would happen. Set looks cool, wish they would have had a monster included though but still incredible!!!
Taika Waititi, director of the upcoming Thor Ragnarok movie, recently said that he was doing the motion capture acting for Korg, one of the characters from the Planet Hulk storyline and a friend of the Hulk. Thor met (and broke apart) another member of Korg’s race in the beginning of the last Thor movie.
