Joss Whedon Calls Planet Hulk and Avengers Movie Rumors Nonsense

Planet Hulk Comic Book

I think everyone thought the idea of a “Planet Hulk” movie was pretty cool. I mean, the Hulk, shot into space and becomes a badass gladiator on an alien planet? Then he comes back to Earth and takes on the entire Marvel U.? Who wouldn’t want to see that?

Cool idea, but total “nonsense”, according to Joss Whedon, Marvel’s in-house mastermind for all things Marvel Movie U. and the writer/director of the upcoming “The Avengers 2″.

Speaking to IGN while out promoting his friends-get-together-to-make-a-movie movie “Much Ado About Nothing”, Whedon was asked about those Planet Hulk rumors and responded thusly:

Well I’m really not supposed to comment, but no, that’s nonsense.

So there you have it. No Planet Hulk movie, or World War Hulk movie in the third “Avengers” movie, and the guy who is in charge of the entire shebang should know, right?

Granted, Marvel is notoriously tight-lipped about their future plans, especially if it’s going to involve movies they haven’t even done yet, and don’t plan to do for another few years, but I think it’s safe to say Whedon knows where the Hulk is going, and apparently it’s not to his own planet.

Bummer.
