Can Joseph Gordon Levitt grow convincing facial hair? This is the question on everyone’s mind following the latest Doctor Strange rumor, but as Marvel readies for it’s next phase, some people are wondering when The House of Mouse and The House of Ideas will let the Hulk smash in his own solo adventure film.
Sadly, we’re no close to knowing when that time will come (yet), but there is a new RUMOR today, coming from Comic Book Movie that may shed some light on the possible direction of this film, and if true, that direction should sound very familiar to fans of the current Marvel comic series, Indestructible Hulk.
In the comic, Bruce Banner decides to use himself as a weapon for good, cutting a deal with S.H.I.E.L.D. that will allow him to run a research lab with a staff of his choosing and the goal of innovating. In exchange for this, Banner lends the Hulk to S.H.I.E.L.D. for deployment against the biggest of the bads. It’s a Mark Waid creation, so you know it’s good and meaty, and it really could make for an interesting concept for a film if they go this way.
An Indestructible Hulk film could also open up a few other speculation windows, like: would Maria Hill appear (she’d sorta have to), and could this very S.H.I.E.L.D. based project loop in ABC’s upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show in some way?
We’ll have to wait to find out anything tangible on those questions and if this is really the road that Marvel wants to go down with Mark Ruffalo’s first standalone Hulk film, but for now, we should all just be devastated that Science Bros the cinema film seems so very far away.
