Kevin Feige Puts the Kibosh on a New Hulk Solo Film

The Avengers (2012) Movie Character Poster - The HulkLet’s face it, Marvel is going to end up doing a third “Hulk” solo movie sooner or later. That’s just the nature of the beast. The Hulk has huge name brand recognition, and Hollywood is all about name brand recognition nowadays. But just don’t expect Bruce Banner to get his own solo movie anytime soon.

At least, that’s if I’m understanding what Marvel President Kevin Feige correctly when he was recently asked about another (third) “Hulk” solo film in the aftermath of “The Avengers”, a superhero team film that’s also the perfect launching pad for its characters to hop over into their own franchise (or sequels):

Well, no. This was the other shot. Right? I mean, this was the third appearance of Hulk and everything that we had and were going for, we put in to Hulk’s appearance in “Avengers.” So, I love that people are saying that and are feeling that way about Hulk, but mission accomplished at this point. And the way we go forward, we’ll see. But it was a long road to get to this point. Although, I will say, after the screening, I heard various arguments over who was their favorite. Which is my favorite thing: Arguing what was the favorite moment or character. And the fact that so many of them are saying Hulk feels very, very good. Where we go next, we’ll see. But we’ll be very careful about it and deliberate — as we were in how we wanted to bring him back in “Avengers.”

Feige should know. He is the guy calling all the shots, and with Marvel movies making crazy money at the box office, he’s probably not going anywhere anytime soon. So it does sound like he has zero interest in giving the Hulk another chance at the movies by his little angry lonesome.

Of course, it’s not like we’ll be Hulk-less forever. As I understand it, Guillermo Del Toro is still working on that new “Hulk” TV show. But until that happens, there’s always Hulk doing what Hulk does best, which is, yes, smash’em good in “The Avengers”, due out May 4th.

Cool Stories From Zergnet

    Didn’t think we’d get another Hulk movie after two other films didn’t impress well, even though I really enjoyed Incredible Hulk. I think if they put him in another Avngers movie maybe they could get another Hulk film off the ground with the Leader…or they could just throw a Hulk story in with the Avengers.

    I think anything is possible at this point. We’ll see after Avengers hits theatres for saturation, and if it performs as well everyone is thinking, or exceeds it.

    Marvel may have a metric ton of properties they can push out in response to an outright confirmation of success of this Marvel Universe project of theirs, but it’s a lot easier to dip from the existing well than build the groundwork for a new one.

    Then again, I’d sacrifice a Norton-less Hulk to finally get my Dr. Strange movie… >_>
