Marvel made the announcement about Phase 3 and notably absent was a Hulk solo movie of course. There was a Q&A afterwards and Kevin Feige was asked about there being no Hulk solo movie and here is what he said:
“[Hulk] is going to appear in many of the movies announced today,” Feige said. He noted that actor Mark Ruffalo is “on board” for those movies, as well. It is interesting to not he said “many” and not simply “the Avengers movies,” meaning we could see Hulk show up in other films, as well. However, he was much less committal about any stand-alone film. “We’ll see. We’d love to do it.”
I am still hoping that the Hulk shows up in the next Guardians of the Galaxy.
Marvel had a big announcement today and listed all their upcoming movies through 2019 which is awesome…..except there is still no Hulk solo movie announcement. Which kinda sucks a lot. My only hope is that the Hulk will appear in the second Guardians of the Galaxy movie in some way. Sigh…..
Ed Norton was on NPR promoting his new movie Birdman when he made the following comment about the role of Bruce Banner and the Hulk:
“My feeling was that I experimented and experienced what I wanted to. I really, really enjoyed it. And yet, I looked at the balance of time in life that one spends not only making those sorts of films but then especially putting them out, and the obligations that rightly come with that.
“There were just a lot of things—I wanted more diversity. I sort of chose to continue on my path of having a diversity of experiences. Maybe on some unconscious level, I didn’t want to have an association with one thing in any way degrade my effectiveness as an actor, in characters. I think you can sort of do anything once, but if you do it too many times, it can become a suit that’s hard to take off, in other peoples’ eyes.
“And if I had continued on with it, I wouldn’t have made ‘Moonrise Kingdom,’ or ‘Grand Budapest,’ or ‘Birdman,’ because those all overlapped with ['The Avengers']. And those were more the priority for me, but I continue to be a fan and I’m really, really happy I got to do it once.”
It was supposed to first show next week during the latest Agents of SHIELD but it apparently leaked early so Marvel went ahead and officially posted it to Youtube. WATCH IT NOW, it is freaking amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!! James Spader was an excellent choice for the voice of Ultron, he drips dread when he speaks. When it leaked, Marvel showed what a cool company they are by tweeting the following:
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.
“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.
No, this is not just me copying and pasting old posts, this is actually new news. I’m pretty certain that Lou thinks that he can will a new tv show and movie into existence or that if he talks about it enough, Marvel will have to do it. Either way, I will be happy if either a new Hulk movie or tv show do happen.
Lou was talking to Film Fad at Wizard World Con and said the following:
“Well, to tell you the truth they plan to do a TV series someday and it will probably be CGI, I don’t think you’ll ever see a human Hulk again. Because with the technology people would rather see something that is a little more animated like CGI.”
“I think in another year, they’re going to film a solo ‘Hulk’ movie. But I think the series can happen if they finish doing ‘The Avengers’ or the ‘Hulk’ movie, that’s my guess for now.”
The upcoming Antman movie only started filming a short time ago and a few pictures from the set have leaked out and we already know of a blink and miss it easter egg from the Incredible Hulk movie with Ed Norton. In the beginning of the Incredible Hulk movie, Bruce was working at a bottling company for a beverage called Pingo Doce down in Brazil. In the pic from Antman, you can see Paul Rudd walking down the street past a sign on a wall for Pingo Doce. How cool is that!!!
Since SDCC started a few days ago, Marvel has been releasing sections of a large poster for the Avengers 2 movie next year. They saved one of the best for last, namely the Hulk piece of course. Poster looks great and the Hulk looks like he is just going to crush a ton of Ultrons.
