HULK: Kevin Feige Explains The Leader And Abomination's Absence From The Marvel Cinematic Universe

HULK: Kevin Feige Explains The Leader And Abomination's Absence From The Marvel Cinematic Universe

There's been no sign of The Leader and Abomination since The Incredible Hulk was released almost a decade ago and now Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige explains why we've heard nothing from either.

The Incredible Hulk has become the black sheep of the Marvel Studios family and the only character to make it out of that movie (aside from Bruce Banner who is now played by a new actor in the form of Mark Ruffalo) was General Ross and it took eight years for that to happen! It's a shame too as Liv Tyler's Betty Ross was likeable and villains like Abomination and The Leader deserve another chance.

Well, it turns out that Kevin Feige is well aware fans feel like those two bad guys have been wasted and while he doesn't mention a specific place for them to return, they're both still out there...somewhere! 


"It is an embarrassment of riches of places we could go or characters we could reprise or bring back now that we’re… I think Ragnarok is our seventeenth MCU film. And you would be surprised how many… it’s come up. It’s come up. Just finding the right place. And as I said, if you can’t do it right, don’t do it or do it later, and the notion of “Hey, I’m here too! Next!” is not interesting to us. Abomination is in a prison somewhere too.'"
 
A comic book prelude for The Avengers revealed that The Leader was taken into custody so he too is in prison somewhere. The problem is, with no plans for a solo movie revolving around The Hulk, it's hard to say where characters like this could really fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as of right now. 

Where would you like to see them make their return? As always, sound off in the comments section.
