The Hulk is about to go cosmic. After the success of The Avengers and the show-stopping appearance of The Hulk, many comic book fans wondered how the big green rage monster would fit into the next phase of Marvel movie domination. Well, it appears The Hulk may be headed for outer space.
POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW!!!
According to Latino Review‘s Marvel insiders, the cinematic Marvel Universe has big plans for Dr. Banner and “the other guy.” It’s rumored that, at the end of The Avengers 2, The Hulk will be deemed too dangerous for Earth, and will then be launched into a new solar system. He gets caught in a wormhole and lands on a new planet. According to the rumors, we’d get a Planet Hulk standalone movie, after which The Hulk would return to seek revenge on Earth in The Avengers 3.
The comic version of Planet Hulk was first published in 2006, and saw The Hulk banished from Earth by the Marvel version of the Illuminati. He travels to a distant planet where he becomes a lethal gladiator, and then eventually king. The following series, World War Hulk, could form the narrative of The Avengers 3, possibly with the Avengers teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy. If you want to get a feel for Planet Hulk, you can check out Marvel’s animated feature film on Netflix Instant.
It sounds incredible, and Latino Review is usually right about these rumors. If this is the direction that Marvel wants to go in with its Phase 2 and 3, then will the Silver Surfer be finally introduced in these comic book movies? The Surfer plays a big role in Planet Hulk, so it likely that they would bring him into Marvel’s movie universe.
