Way back last September, Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige remarked about doing more with the Hulk.
As the Hulk was such a hit in The Avengers movie and arguably stole the show, fans have been wondering since last may if the Hulk will ever be featured in his own movie again.
The previous Hulk movies were arguably not very good, but Kevin Feige still said that he thinks the Hulk could carry his own movie.
In that September interview, MTV pressed Feige about comic book scribe Greg Pak's "Planet Hulk" and "World War Hulk" storyline, with Feige responding that he thought both were cool stories.
Are they cool enough for their own movies? Could be.
The latest rumor to come out of Latino Review is that Marvel Studios is, indeed, adapting Greg Pak's "Planet Hulk" and "World War Hulk" for their Phase 3 plans.
If you recall back in July, LR was given a batch of Iron Man 3 and Guardians of the Galaxy spoilers with Marvel Studios apparently investigating the leaks and trying to squeeze info out from them about their source, actually bullying them from the sounds of it.
Well, this new Hulk info is payback for that according to LR.
They state at some point - could be The Avengers 2 - Hulk goes ballistic and gets sent off to space by the Marvel Studios version of the Illuminati. Marvel Studios then does a Planet Hulk movie and then possibly back to The Avengers 3 for "World War Hulk."
Interesting enough, we've heard mention of plans for Doctor Strange in Phase 2, a member of the Illuminati. And what's also interesting is that Fox Studios owns the rights to Professor X, a card carrying member as well, but in the Marvel Comics, Black Panther has recently become a member of the Illuminati, who could easily fill-in for Xavier. (Actually, my guess would be they wouldn't go the "Illuminati" route specifically, but just be a general group decision). And we also know that Marvel Comics has to follow Marvel Studios movie guidelines, and we also recently heard mention that Thor 2's Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje wants the Black Panther Movie.
There's also the fact that Marvel put out a Planet Hulk DVD movie, which could be looked at as a testing grounds of sorts for the movies.
Stan Lee said an Inhumans movie is in the works, with it recently announced that an animated motion-comics Inhumans movie is coming out soon as well (Iron Man Extremis was done and now we have Iron Man 3).
For the fans of the "Planet Hulk" comic book that might be wondering what they would do about the use of the Silver Surfer (owned by Fox Studios), in the DVD movie Beta Ray Bill was used. Who knows? Maybe we'll still see Beta Ray Bill in Thor 2 just yet.
The Avengers 2 assembles May 1, 2015 with Iron Man 3 on May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, the Guardians of the Galaxy movie on August 1, 2014 and Ant-Man on November 6, 2015..
