Wait, so No Planet Hulk and World War Hulk (in The Avengers 3) Movies?


Planet Hulk Comic Book CoverAs you’ll recall, not all that long ago Latino Review posted a major Marvel scoop involving possible plot points for not only “The Avengers 2″, but also “The Avengers 3″ and the direction of the third “Hulk” movie. You can read all of that here. As always with these rumors — POTENTIAL SPOILERS.

The latest update on this comes from AICN, who puts the kibosh on all that Hulk Planet stuff. In fact, their sources aren’t just telling them that LR’s scoop was wrong, but that it was “1,000% inaccurate”. Which is, uh, pretty inaccurate. I mean, 1,000%? Not 100%? But 1,0000%? That’s going out on a limb there.

The main reason why a Planet Hulk and World War Hulk storyline just isn’t feasible, according to the site, is Marvel’s desire to continue using Mark Ruffalo as an integral part of all Hulk storylines. Obviously one of the reasons why the Hulk was such a crowdpleaser in “The Avengers” was precisely because the Green Goliath only had two scenes in the whole movie, so when he finally showed up, it was a real treat.

Those who have already read the Planet Hulk and World War Hulk comic books will know that Bruce Banner barely shows up in both story arcs. In fact, he’s mostly absent for all of them, which means, yes, not a whole lot of Mark Ruffalo. I guess putting him in mo-cap would be kind of wasting his talents, or at least, Marvel apparently feels that way.

So there you have it, the latest on the Planet Hulk/”The Avengers 2″. True? Untrue? I guess we’ll find out for sure when set images from “The Avengers 2″ starts leaking … whenever Joss Whedon starts shooting the sequel, that is.

    This saddens me. I was really hoping it would happen and it would’ve made for a dman fine Hulk film and third Avengers film. They really could still do it just by finding ways to fit Banner in.

      I agree, it could have been REALLY cool, but I could see how it would have been uber hard to pull off, especially that whole John Carter feel, and we know what happened there…

        Carter wishes it had what Planet Hulk would’ve offered and I’m one of the few fans. I mean yeah it had a cool gladiatorial scene, but that was a modern Rancorr pit scene from Return of the Jedi. Could you imagine Gladiator with the end fights from Incredible Hulk and Avengers?

    this could work no there would not be alot of Mark in Avengers three but for a planet hulk he could have plenty of face time if the did flashback scenes and added something in of the hulk getting hurt badly at first and going back to bruce banner Same with Avengers three though falsh back scenes and of course they would show him at the end
