In February of 2013, El Mayimbe of Latino Review reported that Marvel was planning to launch Hulk into space at the end of the Avengers sequel, which would lead to a Planet Hulk film. Since then, there have been many denials. Most people have put that rumor to bed. Then a year later something odd happened - Thor: The Dark World concept art revealed that Marvel commissioned concept art for the Oldstrong and Kaifi. They're two characters that first appeared in Marvel's "Planet Hulk" comic book storyline. Those characters did not appear in Thor 2, but at one point they were considered.

Now, Kevin Feige is out promoting Guardians of the Galaxy and IGN asked him about the chances of a Planet Hulk film.
"I think what's cool about the Planet Hulk story is it's all Hulk. He's a gladiator, he's fighting all these creatures on another world. Yes, some of those creatures show up in [Guardians of the Galaxy], which makes people think, 'Oh, maybe it could exist.' And maybe it could exist, someday. I don't think that's the first place we would go though for the very reason that you stated, which is, if we were ever able to do a standalone Hulk movie, 60 percent of the fun would be seeing Mark Ruffalo leading a Marvel movie -- and that's what we would do if we ever went down that road." - Kevin Feige

It's worth noting that, while Feige said there were no immediate plans to tackle Planet Hulk, he did not entirely rule out the idea of "Hulk in space" or a Banner/Hulk-led film, meaning that may still be on the table in some fashion.

By the way, I don't understand this whole "Planet Hulk can't work because you also need to show Banner" argument that people bring up. A Planet Hulk film could still be Banner centric, it doesn't have to be exactly like the comics. Just have him turn into Hulk when he's in the arena.

Can we atleast bring back The Leader and The Abomination with a little of Absorbing Man. It can be just like the Hulk vs. The Worl and Gamma World pt.1 & 2 episodes of Avengers: EMH. Then General Ross can blame it on The hulk then the two can fight which leads to Planet Hulk.

@MCUfan1 A lot of the rumors swirling is that Andy Serkis is mo-capping Abomination BUT who knows...

Also, Avengers 3 has to undoubtedly be centered around Thanos.
I do not care anything about seeing a Planet Hulk film because they've already made it known Banner can control himself a little bit. Move on to greater things besides smashing and talking like an ape. How about the Wrecking Crew or a team-up?

Why are people clamouring for this?

Planet Hulk is like an Edgar Rice Burroughs planetary story with the Hulk. Make it happen!
