Marvel is tearing it up with all the super-hero flicks they’ve released in the last few years, and with the Avengers only weeks away from hitting screens, fans are about ready to explode. Furthermore, Thor, Captain America and Iron Man are all set to make additions to their own individual franchises. There are even talks of Nick Fury or Hawkeye getting a solo gig.
But, alas, it looks like this may be the end for The Incredible Hulk.
President of Marvel, Kevin Feige, had a few comments to make on this spirit-crushing decision:
“It was a long road to get to this point. Although, I will say, after the [premiere] screening, I heard various arguments over who was their favorite. Which is my favorite thing: Arguing what was the favorite moment or character. And the fact that so many [people] are saying Hulk feels very, very good. Where we go next, we’ll see. But we’ll be very careful about it and deliberate—as we were in how we wanted to bring him back in Avengers.”
So, if the fans are in love with the Hulk, what’s the deal? There’s money to be made here, so it seems like Marvel would jump right on it.
Though one never knows what the future may bring, and with the popularity that the Hulk is gaining even before Avengers has released, it’s likely they’ll end up changing their minds about this. For now, people will just have to enjoy the big green in Avengers and hope Marvel comes to their senses.
Hulk vs. Wolverine anybody?
Thanks to blastr for the heads-up on this one.
