OOh that's a bit risky. Getting real comic booky and possibly alienating the crossover audience. I love the idea though. Hopefully means Black Bolt/Inhumans are in the plans too.
Don’t expect to see the Hulk until 2015′s The Avengers 2, as per Feige. However, DO expect to see a third act or post-credits scene of the sequel that sets up Hulk’s next standalone picture.
Apparently, after being deemed a serious threat to the Earth by Marvel’s Illuminati (a secret organization of powerful heroes that includes Tony Stark/Iron Man, the soon to be introduced Doctor Strange and others), the Hulk is shipped off into space.
Once spacebound, the report states that Hulk’s next film will be centered around comic writer Greg Pak’s Planet Hulk. The idea is that Hulk has already spent a lot of time smashing puny humans and puny Gods, so let’s take his story to an alien planet where he can extraterrestrials to his hearts content.
The arc of Planet Hulk centers on the Hulk as he becomes enslaved on the planet Sakaar, is forced to participate in gladiatorial games and eventually becomes a hero of the rebellion against the Red King.
The story doesn’t end here however, because as cool as the idea of Gladiator-meets-Hulk is, it gets better. Here’s another spoiler alert if you don’t want to know about Hulk’s possible involvement in The Avengers 3.
At the end of Planet Hulk, some events transpire that get the Hulk pretty pissed off. The only thing worse than an enraged Hulk is one with an army of loyal followers. The theory goes that Hulk and his warbound fighters will return to Earth in The Avengers 3 to follow Pak’s World War Hulk story arc.
The story of World War Hulk is pretty crazy but basically involves the Hulk and his warriors beating the **** out of every hero and heroic team on Earth, eventually pitting them against each other in the Hulk’s own version of gladiatorial combat.
One thing that makes the standalone Hulk movie more probable is the fact that Mark Ruffalo has signed on for a six-picture deal with Marvel and it is doubtful that he’ll be happy to just appear in post-credits or cameos for the rest of his career.
If El Mayimbe’s report pans out and Marvel really does take this track over the next few years, it’s absolutely HUGE for Hulk fans. Honestly, the guy needs to get off the Earth and stretch his legs a little bit. And what better way to freshen up the Avengers than by having them fight each other in the third installment? Since this isn’t confirmed and it’s way too early for Marvel’s timetable to release anything official, expect a denial (or better yet, silence) for the time being.
