The Internet is a hot bed of rumors and wishful hopes for Marvel fan-boys and girls and the latest round of Hulk movie rumors are a fine example. Ever since Mark Ruffalo‘s fantastic version of the Hulk (Along with the terrific special effects of ILM) hit the big screen in Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers, Hulk fans have been hoping for a stand alone Hulk movie that would make the hero shine.
Planet Hulk and World War Hulk are recent Hulk stories that fans would love to see on the big screen and I include myself in that group of Hulk fanatics. El Mayimbe of The Latino Review reported that there was a Hulk movie in the mix, but soon Whedon and now Ruffalo both have pretty much squashed that rumor.
Ruffalo took on the rumors when asked on Twitter late last night.
So we’ve got the Director and the lead actor both shooting down rumors of a stand alone Hulk movie. It is interesting that both Whedon and Ruffalo’s denials are for a stand alone Hulk movie before Avengers 2. Which makes sense and yet it still allows room for a Hulk movie in Phase three. El Mayimbe did day that the Hulk movie would take place after Avengers 2 when the threat of the Hulk is too much to allow him to remain on Earth.
What do you think? Do these two denials mean it won’t happen?
