In an interview with SFX, Avengers Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon had this to say about the Hulk in the upcoming movie:
“There is more Hulk in this movie than there was in the last first,” Whedon revealed to SFX. It was great to see The Hulk smashing alien invaders in The Avengers, but at times it felt like he was there to be a spectacle and not a well-developed character. That won’t be the case in the sequel. “What I love is we have the opportunity, because we went in with this mission statement, to shoot the Hulk like a character in a movie, and not like a ‘Look what we’ve got!’ We have ‘overs’ – blurry ‘Hulk’s over there! Bits, very quick shots,” Whedon explained. “Everything isn’t ‘We built the Hulk so for god’s sake you’re going to watch him in this long take, full frame, the whole time!’ We really got to make him one of the characters in the movie. And that was a gift.”
They just released a new Avengers poster a few days ago (with a bit too much photoshopping going on) and now they are releasing posters for the upcoming movie with just each character. Iron Man was the first to be released yesterday and now the Hulk is second to go. Now this is a good looking poster.
Abomination locks the Hulks up in a super villain prison where many of their enemies now reside. Find out if the Hulks are able to escape and prove their innocence in the all-new HULK AND THE AGENTS OF S.M.A.S.H. airing Sunday, February 15 8:00am/7:00c in the Marvel Universe on Disney XD.
The next Avengers movie is just around the corner and the toys keep coming! This is a set if mini action figures featuring the Incredible Hulk and Iron Man Hulkbuster armor. This is probably the smallest Hulk figure that they will be releasing for the movie, only 5 points of articulation. The sculpt is okay, can’t have a lot of detail due to the small size of it and lot the other main movie toys, it is geared towards small kids. The Hulkbuster armor is pretty cool, you can open it up and put in an Iron Man figure from another set. The only problem, similar to the problem I had with the other movie Hulk figure, is that he just doesn’t seem to want to stand up straight. I have to arrange his feet so that it looks like he is leaning over just so he wouldn’t fall over. Little frustrating. When I picked up this set from Target, there was also another smaller set of just the Hulk figure with a sub-ultron figure. The Hulk was exactly the same, even the pants color was the same. I am not collecting every single Hulk toy anymore and since the figure was exactly the same, I didn’t pick it up, just took a pic. If they had done anything to make it unique, I would have picked it up for sure.
Fathead will be releasing a line of Avengers Age of Ultron decals featuring the Avengers and Ultron with images just being released. They will have the standard decals along with two very cool looking images featuring Hulk vs Iron Man. You can order here. How cool would it be to have both the Hulk and the Hulkbuster up on your wall!
I already posted yesterday about the Hot Topic grey exclusive Pop Hulk figure, and now Funko has officially released images of the entire Avengers related toys they are making and there are a bunch of Hulks! Those include a regular Hulk Pop figure, another set of Mystery Mini’s although they don’t show what the variants will be so hopefully the Hulk will be one of them, a Hulk keychain, a Hulk bobblehead, and a finally a Hulk Fabrikation which is a plush type toy. They have done some other Marvel Fabrikations and I am glad to see them finally come out with a Hulk. Looks like most of these will be available in March or April so be on the lookout!
On March 10, 1979, the Incredible Hulk tv show premiered and I was blown away. I had already been a huge fan of the comic book and now I was able to see my favorite comic book character on the television, how incredible (pun intended) is that. To top it off, that was also my 10th birthday. We all know Lou Ferrigno played the Hulk but Bill Bixby brought the character of David Bruce Banner to life. He brought Banner’s sadness and desire to stay in one location and have a life to the screen in an amazing way. Bill had done previous roles on tv but this role will probably always be his most well known. How many of us have seen him walking down the highway at the end of an episode with the classic music playing. Bill was born on January 22, 1934 but sadly passed away in 1993. Great actor and I thank him for what he did for helping bring the Hulk to many, many people.
First photos have appeared of the Marvel Select Incredible Hulk action figure for the Avengers Age of Ultron movie coming soon (but not soon enough). The overall sculpt looks pretty good except his mouth seems a little off. It just doesn’t seem right for some reason but the rest of the figure looks good. With the other Marvel Select Hulk figures, I am sure this will weigh about 50 lbs. The figure should be available around early May when the movie is released.
Funko is of course making a line of Pop figures for the upcoming Avengers Age of Ultron movie and someone got a sneak peak of the figures and it looks like there is going to be a grey version of the Incredible Hulk exclusive to Hot Topic. The Hulk has red around his eyes similar to the red that appears around the Hulk’s eyes in the trailer when he is fighting Iron Man in his Hulkbuster armor. Some people are thinking that the Hulk might turn grey in the movie but I doubt that, this is just a reason to make an exclusive version by changing the color without having to create anything new. Regardless I will be picking it up.
So during the awesome Championship game where Ohio State become the first College Football Champions (GO BUCKS), Marvel released a new Avengers 2 Age of Ultron trailer. It shows a very angry Hulk and the movie is looking to be awesome.
