A while back Mark Ruffalo sounded like he’d be all in for a solo flick based around The Hulk, but Marvel Studios top dog, Kevin Feige, said didn’t make it sound too likely. Well, as the overseas box offices explode due to the success of The Avengers, it looks like Feige’s tune has changed a little.
This is what he told The Huffington Post :
“Well, no. This was the other shot. Right? I mean, this was the third appearance of Hulk and everything that we had and were going for, we put in to Hulk’s appearance in “Avengers.” So, I love that people are saying that and are feeling that way about Hulk, but mission accomplished at this point. And the way we go forward, we’ll see. But it was a long road to get to this point. … But we’ll be very careful about it and deliberate — as we were in how we wanted to bring him back in Avengers.”
Sounds a little more promising, right? Well Marvel’s President of Consumer Products, Paul Gitter, told Forbes that the not so jolly green giant has been making the cash register ring.
“His sales are up in a major way. We repositioned him from where he was always misunderstood to now depicting him in a more heroic and aspirational manner.”
He even goes on to say that if The Hulk continues on this trend they would be “[spinning] him off to a stand-alone program next year,” with a new movie in 2015.
Could the third time be the charm? Are you ready for an all new, all different Hulk? Is it time for the reboot to happen?
