Is Marvel Planning a Third Hulk Movie … and Beyond? (SPOILERS!)

So, yeah, lots of POTENTIAL SPOILERS in this one, if it all turns out to be true, that is. Or even just semi-true. Thing is, it could be mostly true, entirely true, or entirely wrong. But then you have to factor in the site responsible for this, which happens to be the guys at Latino Review, and it’s hard not to think this is, more likely that not, kinda/mostly/probably all true. Those guys have proven that they have some pretty deep sources within the bowels of Marvel Studios, and as far as I can recall, they’ve always been dead on with their scoops.

But man, this is BIG.

The thing is, if true, the scoop would encompass almost what, 7-8-9 years of future Marvel releases? Including potential plot points of “The Avengers 3″. (Oh, let’s not kid ourselves. “The Avengers 2″ in 2015 is going to be friggin’ big, and that will mean an “Avengers 3″ 2-3 years down the road.) So yeah, it’s pretty far-reaching … IF TRUE.


Planet Hulk Comic BookSo, according to LR, the ending of “The Avengers 2″ will see the Hulk lose it and become a major menace, enough that the heroes of the Marvel Universe (Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, etc) will decide it’s best to jettison poor Bruce Banner and the Hulk out into space in an adaptation of the “Planet Hulk” storyline by Greg Pak.

Why was it called “Planet Hulk”? Well, the Hulk lands on an alien planet (thanks to a frisky wormhole) and becomes a gladiator, battles a bunch of aliens (including some familiar ones — like the Silver Surfer), before eventually becoming king of this planet.

But that’s not all! According to LR, “The Avengers 3″ will see the Hulk, along with his warrior followers, return to Earth for a little revenge, in an adaptation of the “World War Hulk” storyline, also by Pak! You can, of course, imagine that these two major events will affect a lot of other Marvel movies, possibly even the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy” and beyond. In “World War Hulk”, basically every single Marvel character shows up to do battle with the Hulk.

So yeah, major, major plot reveals here … IF TRUE. I can’t stress that enough.

Here’s LR’s video featuring their scoop that I just bullet pointed for you above.

If “Planet Hulk” sounds familiar, that’s because Marvel had previously put out a “Planet Hulk” animated film starring the Hulk. You can see a trailer for that below:

  • Juggernaut

    That would be amazing!

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    Hmmm do we want to see Mark Rufullo as a bad guy?

    • Juggernaut

      He was in a movie called What Doesn’t Kill you where he played a street level thug who was less than savory and was excellent in the role. In fact when he was cast as Bruce Banner/Hulk in Avengers that was the performance that solidified my beleif in the choice.

    • imrickjames

      There isn’t going to be much Bruce banner (Mark Rufullo) in planet Hulk and pretty much no Banner in world war Hulk. So he’ll be in Hulk mode pretty much the whole movie (if they stick to the comic).

      • Juggernaut

        I agree that the comics were all Hulk but the films will change that up a bit I’m sure. I can’t imagine them having Ruffalo, who is billing their movie, not in it, as his human alter ego that is, at some points.

      • Lexavi80

        Is an adaptation. For sure Mr. Rufallo get some screen time. Plus, he makes the motion capture for the Hulk, so is all Mark Rufallo.

    • Lexavi80

      Yeah we do!

      However… he’s not the bad guy. You have to read the book so you can understand. There’s more to it than good and bad.

      • Dedpool

        Very well said. Hell even Ghost Rider can’t punish the Hulk during WWH cause he’s not really at fault, just mad!!!

    • Mateo Alvarado95

      Yes because he is the only who played an amazing Banner. He was able to truly portray and bring the character to life. Plus he signed for 6 movies

  • imrickjames

    There’s a lot of story there like Marvel civil war and secret invasion which is an important part of the puzzle. Curious to see how they pull this off as some very important characters in these stories belong to Fox (Silver surfer, fantastic 4, professor X and the X-men, Spiderman). I don’t doubt they will have to alter the story a bit but that’s a shame as it came together so well in the comics.

  • Logan

    Planet Hulk is a cool idea for a spin-off but not for the avengers storyline!

    • Lexavi80

      Planet Hulk is a spin-off. World War Hulk is The Avengers 3 storyline… and I think is right as great!!

  • evilloin

    Why would the movie “end” with Thanos if the next two movies revolve around “WW Hulk” ? If I ask for an “Infinite Gauntlet”, I damn well better get it! Hulk in space,in my opinion, can wait AT LEAST until the end of the second movie…

    • Dedpool

      Second film will end with Hulk being sent into space. Avengers 2 will still have Thanos as the main bad guy.

  • NCounter

    World War Hulk – I guess the best version is this one…

  • Dedpool

    This could be really really good. I can already see them tweaking things for the story to make it more Avenegers centered. A Planet Hulk live action film would rock, but would they have to introduce Beta Ray Bill in Thor 2 or Thor 3 before putting him in Planet Hulk? Since Fox still hold the rights to Silver Surfer he can’t be in the film. Next couple of years is getting to be huge for Marvel.

    • Juggernaut

      Beta Ray Bill is a must! Also, you never know, by the time this story is explored FOX could gi ve up the rights to Silver Surfer.

      • Dedpool

        Bill would work better. And i’m not holding my breath for Surfer anyway.

  • venom_aa

    Who’s butt to do i need to kiss to see this happening
