Kevin Feige On The Chances Of PLANET HULK

Kevin Feige On The Chances Of PLANET HULK

Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, is doing press for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and he was asked about the chances of a Planet Hulk film. Check it out.

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.
BrowniesExplode - 7/21/2014, 12:47 AM
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.
TheGambitFreak - 7/21/2014, 12:57 AM
@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?
TheDesertGorilla - 7/21/2014, 1:01 AM
Planet Hulk is like an Edgar Rice Burroughs planetary story with the Hulk. Make it happen!
kinghulk - 7/21/2014, 1:04 AM
Mcufan1- throw in hawkeye in there as well after all he played a role in the episodes on EMH.
Jollem - 7/21/2014, 1:07 AM
more hulk, please

JasonBlue - 7/21/2014, 1:08 AM
He clearly ruled it out for the foreseeable future... some people always read what they wanna read.
BrowniesExplode - 7/21/2014, 1:08 AM
@TheGambitFreak Andy is the btw! But if the rumors are true Tim Roth should come back as well.

@kinghulk Very true plus it would be good for Jeremy Renner aswell considering he was m.i.a. during The Winter Soldier and would make up for his small role in Thor.
MightyZeus - 7/21/2014, 1:09 AM
A Planet Hulk film would be great. What would be better if a solo Hulk film where to happen sooner, rather than later.

BrowniesExplode - 7/21/2014, 1:09 AM
@Jollem Do you know that was in then first Avengers script.
SnapperCarr - 7/21/2014, 1:11 AM
I want to see Hulk in a solo film with the return of his supporting cast. Where was General Ross during the invasion? Where's the Leader now? What's up Betty?

Sooooo nice.
Brainiac13 - 7/21/2014, 1:24 AM
I love Planet Hulk, the comic & the animated Omega said!
Jollem - 7/21/2014, 1:29 AM
@MCUfan1 - indeed i did, good and kind sir

BrowniesExplode - 7/21/2014, 1:38 AM
@Jollem I would have been cool if Loki took control of the Hulk and made him fight Cap. Hopefully the two train together in Age of Ultron.
Jollem - 7/21/2014, 1:42 AM
@TheDesertGorilla - right. it was a good story

@MCUfan1 - that would have been pretty cool. ya did get a little hint of loki controlling people in the movie. that was kinda cool. i'd like to see cap training tony to fight

This is the film i'm dying for most. I didn't really think about the issues with Mark Ruffalo though. But still, isn't it about Money and the fans? Ruffalo still gets to kill it as Hulk in Avengers 2 and 3, and then can get a stand alone Hulk on Earth after that if they want.

Like I said, this is how i'd do it..

The Scarlet Witch easily manipulates the Hulk into turning on the Avengers in Avengers 2 and he causes all sorts of damage and is barley subdued before causing catostrophic damage, and even though hes brought outta S.WItchs "trance" and helps the Avengers against Ultron during the rest of the film, Iron Man and Cap have made a decision after they beat Ultron, they must send Hulk on a fake mission to take out a Satelite in Space, in which of course Hulk lands on the mysterious planet. He must fight many bouts to earn his respect, ending with him beating the Red King for ruler ship of the Planet.
Then in Avengers 3, Thor is sent to find Hulk to help against Kang, but when he does, he finds a much more savage Hulk, with Banner almost all but a distant memory. Thor breaks the news about Black Widow dying in battle, who Hulk had become very close with in Avengers 2, which is the only thing that changed Hulks mind about going back to Earth. While fighting on Earth against Kang and Company, he starts to feel wanted again and understands the decisions of IM and Cap sending him to space. We also finally get Bruce back whos been almost lost inside Hulk for a very long time, making for a interesting storyline in its own right. Then boom, you can set up a stand alone Hulk film on Earth starring Ruffalo, whos gonna be a more damaged soul then ever, albeit, trying to overcome and be fully able to trust again and get on with his life.

BOOM! I just got to see Hulk in Gladiator Style fighting movie, and sitting on a Throne at the end of the film with his hair a bit longer and having mega armor on one arm with the spikes coming off the shoulder. You could easily have a Cameo from one or all the GOTG, or even introduce another Cosmic hero/villian during the film like dare I say, Adam Warlock , Quasar, or even Thanos and Death?
AvatarIII - 7/21/2014, 1:44 AM
I really don't see why they could not make Planet Hulk, but with Hulk reverting to Banner between battles. Why is it so important he stay as Hulk 100% of the time?
Doopie - 7/21/2014, 1:47 AM
Looks like they'll keep the 'being sent off planet only to return pissed off' thing but cut out the rest. that's fine by me

Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes - Boxing Scene:
Namor - 7/21/2014, 1:53 AM
Adding to my story , it'd be bad assery if Thanos and Death travel to Hulks new planet to make sure its true the Green Goliath is in fact not on earth, but while on the planet they unwantedly run into Hulk who instantly charges Thanos and is lambasted by Death with a back hand that rocks Hulk. Thanos then mutters to Hulk "in time", as they both leave the planet again with Hulk clearly stunned.
Namor - 7/21/2014, 1:55 AM
@Avatar- How the Heck is Bruce gonna survive on this Alien Planet? Will he be able to breathe? Will he have food to eat? Will he be able to stay sane on this world not in Hulk form? I mean, its just to much to answer. Way better off having him need to stay in Hulk form and get lost inside Hulk making for a much more dramatic return when he does in fact return to earth.

if there's money involved they'll do it. They've got everyone roped in.
Floke - 7/21/2014, 2:14 AM
If the romace between BW and BB is true, they should have a short dinner scene from a restaurant and a pianist playing this in the background:
Jollem - 7/21/2014, 2:17 AM
@MCUfan1 - nice! i like the part in Civil War where it comes down to cap and tony fighting. tony takes off his armor and steve puts down his shield. there's a flashback montage of steve training tony to fight while they are currently fighting. i thought that was pretty cool
dethpillow - 7/21/2014, 2:19 AM
no Planet Hulk, but GOTG 2/"not Planet Hulk" sounds like it could be rad.

just c'mon, please someone give Hulk another movie...
it's been gettin him a little down recently.

sometimes it just hits you and you remember how totally weird the Hulk is,
and it trips you out.
dethpillow - 7/21/2014, 2:31 AM
@0mega - haha, the Credible Hulk, that's really good :)
Sasquatch818 - 7/21/2014, 2:32 AM
Marvel better make a Hulk movie. It's what the people want.
hulkrash - 7/21/2014, 2:33 AM
Glad he confirmed it isn't happening.
loki668 - 7/21/2014, 2:40 AM
Maybe they should do "Neighborhood Hulk". A story about how the Illuminati sent the Hulk to a suburb, in Iowa, and how Hulk has to deal with a corrupt Home Owners Association.
charlie2094 - 7/21/2014, 2:48 AM
Never really liked Planet Hulk, but wouldn't mind it happening at some stage. Certainly not for the next Hulk film though, Banner needs to be hugely present. Sure they could make it work though. The idea of Hulk appearing in a Guardians film with elements of the Planet Hulk story sounds much more interesting to me, not sure I'd want an entire film devoted to it

I really just want to see WW hulk, that would be amazing
JonAnon - 7/21/2014, 3:19 AM
I think the idea that a Planet Hulk film needs to be 100% Hulk is false, I mean a big part of the Planet Hulk/World War Hulk storyline was that it was Hulk and Banner working with complete agreement with each other. You could have an even ratio of Hulk/Banner and still have it work.
