Marvel's PLANET HULK Movie Rumor Debunked?
This will probably make you guys happy and sad in equal measure. I'm sure you remember the rumor that Marvel would be planning a solo movie for The Green Goliath based on the Planet Hulk comics? Well, according to AICN that is definitely not happening. Read on for details..
A while ago, Latino Review posted a Marvel scoop that got everyone either really excited or really damn angry! The word was that a Planet Hulk solo movie was planned, leading into a World War Hulk type scenario with the MCU equivalent of The Illuminati for Avengers 3. Latino Review have been on point more often that not with these type of scoops, so despite the events being predicted being a loooong way away, fans went along with it. But, now we have Mr Beaks from AICN debunking the hell out of it. His sources reckon this is "1,000% inaccurate".
"According to my source, this just isn't happening - not as long as Marvel's got Mark Ruffalo committed to a six-picture deal as Bruce Banner. And that's the primary issue with PLANET HULK: Banner isn't in it at all (unless you count the WHAT IF... story where Banner is immediately killed upon reaching Sakaar).
To make sure, I went to a another source for confirmation, and they backed up every detail. PLANET HULK isn't happening."
He says he couldn't get any details on what the plans ARE post Avengers 2, but that Ruffalo's Banner would be an "integral part of that film". This is hardly surprising given the overwhelmingly positive response from both fans and critics alike to his performance in The Avengers, but I just figured that things would be reworked to include Banner more in the Planet/WW Hulk stories - I mean these are never literal interpretations anyway right? Yes the original rumor was always a bit far fetched, but - as you'll notice by the question mark in the title - we're not necessarily calling this a "debunk". I mean at the end of the day it's just one guy's sources over another, and both are reliable. Plus, like I said, this stuff is years away, who knows what could happen? Anyway, sound off with your thoughts below - do you think a Planet Hulk movie is still a possibility?
