The Internet is famous for fueling rumors and in some cases starting a fire that eventually brings the very rumor it started to fruition. Hopefully this will be the case for Marvel Comics Hulk character (Played by Mark Ruffalo) and a movie story line, Planet Hulk. It was a great comic story and could make a great movie in the right hands, but when Joss Whedon, the man with both hands firmly on the Marvel characters future says no, we might want to listen. In a recent interview with IGN Whedon responded to Planet Hulk and or World War Hulk rumors by saying:
“Well, I’m really not supposed to comment, but no, that’s nonsense.”
Even with those words straight from the man himself, people will still speculate about the future of their favorite green skinned behemoth, it’s what we nerds and geeks do. The rumors reached a crescendo when LatinoReview‘s El Mayimbe posted a video with his “inside” information and thoughts about the ending for Avengers 2 sequel.
The business that is Hollywood works in mysterious ways, confidentiality agreements, and the simple complexity of putting together varying companies and their intellectual properties, actors, and other talents involved in putting together a movie is a daunting task. If you can believe HBO’s Entourage then you know that one wrong word or move can shelve a movie or change the movie’s premise completely. There still may be hope, however slight.
