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.
This weeks issue of Entertainment Weekly has an article on the upcoming Avengers 2 movie along with some first pictures of the cast in the movie. One image shows Bruce Banner and Tony Stark in a lab. In a previous interview, Mark Ruffalo said that there would be more screen time for Bruce and Stark. The second image is of all the Avengers uniforms hanging up. If you look closely, it looks like a pair of purple pants for the Hulk.
While talking to Total Film, Mark Ruffalo spoke a little about the upcoming Avengers 2 movie and about more screen time between “science bro’s” Bruce Banner and Tony Stark:
“There’s more stuff with Banner and Tony Stark,” Ruffalo said with a grin. “More Science Bros stuff.”
The “Science Bros stuff” was easily one of the highlights of the first Avengers film, so much so that Ruffalo’s sleepy Banner was right at the heart of the Iron Man 3 narrative and post-credits stinger. It’s not a surprise to hear that Banner and Stark will have even more to do together this time around, but it’s certainly a welcome tease at the very least.
Beyond Banner and Stark, Ruffalo said that Age of Ultron expands what we know and love about Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, while bringing an amazing new nemesis into the fold as well.
“It’s pretty sweeping. It’s pretty epic,” he said. “It’s, oddly enough, a much bigger movie than Avengers 1 was. It’s a little big darker. We get a lot deeper into the characters now since we established them in the first one and can cover a lot more ground. Ultron’s incredible.”
Mark Ruffalo is very active in trying to make sure our environment is safe. He spends a lot of his own time and voice to help with any potential concerns.

Mark Ruffalo was being interviewed by MTV about current projects and future projects and had this to say about a Hulk solo movie:
“I don’t think that’s where they’re going to go… “Planet Hulk” is: they actually launch Bruce Banner into space to try and get rid of him and the Hulk. And he ends up freaking out, smashing up the spaceship, and it goes off course and it ends up on this planet of gladiator creatures, like pre-Christian, Romanesque.
“I don’t think that’s the way to go yet. I think you need more Banner. The whole thing is just him as Hulk, on a planet, fighting other gladiators. He falls in love, he has a baby, he finds a woman… and then The Avengers nuke the planet.”
While Mark did bring a new Bruce Banner to the Avengers movie, I am going to disagree with his statement. I already know and accept the fact that they will need to make some changes to make a Planet Hulk movie. There is no way they could make it like the comic, there have to be some alterations to the story. Well one of the changes could be that Bruce would have more screen time. In the comic, you really only saw him in the Hulk Annual for the storyline but there would be ways to give Bruce more screentime. I feel that the brought concepts and imagery of the Planet Hulk storyline would bring in a bigger crowd than just another Hulk movie with just more Bruce in it.
