Since the closing credits of The Avengers, fans have been looking for more Hulk, at least the way he’s played by Mark Ruffalo. Despite the middling success of two solo Hulk movies, Ruffalo was so popular in the part that the people are eager for a third try, which wasn’t developed for Phase 2, but may very well end up on the books for Phase 3. (Discerning fans may note that Ruffalo popped up in the stinger at the end of Iron Man 3 but I digress.) So are we ever going to see another Hulk, and if so, what might it be about? New rumors abound as the title “Planet Hulk” has once again raises its head, and there may be some significant spoilage to make you believe it can happen.

Of course, if you don’t want to be spoiled, you have to the count of 10 to bail. (more…)

One of the absolute best parts of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers was how he got Hulk so right on screen. While Mark Ruffalo was quite impressive (as always — have you seen Zodiac?) playing Bruce Banner, it was the big green beastie who SMASHED! his way into film fans’ hearts everywhere. Now that Joss Whedon’s Avengers sequel, Age of Ultron, is currently in production, tidbits regarding what to expect are trickling out. And it seems that we might see much more of Banner’s rampaging alter ego. (more…)

Joss Whedon Says ‘Age of Ultron’ Villain Is ‘Funny, Strange and Unexpected’

- 04-24-14Comics, Film Posted by Jacob Knight

Ultron

“…last time I had all of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes versus one British character actor, and I needed more conflict.”

Joss Whedon is admittedly “having a blast” playing around with the new villain for the Avengers sequel Age of Ultron. While recently speaking with Empire magazine, he discussed not only the latest villain whom everybody’s favorite band of Marvel superheroes are facing off against, but also the overseas release dates (Marvel recently announced Avengers: Age of Ultron will get an earlier release of April 24, 2015, keeping with the recent trend of placing it ahead of the U.S. date) and also how the textures of the architecture in the United Kingdom are being emphasized during the filming of the biggest MCU sequel to date.

‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ to Bring Back Lou Ferrigno to Voice Hulk

The beauty of being the first guy cast as an iconic comic book character is that you’re always going to be associated with said creature and, thus, probably work for the rest of your life. Such is existence for Lou Ferrigno, the bodybuilder whose work on 82 episodes of the Incredible Hulk television series that aired in the late 70s and early 80s still earns him a booth at numerous fan conventions and cameo appearances in Marvel movies (remember him as the security guard at Banner’s lab in Hulk? You should because it’s great!). The bit parts continues to roll in for Ferrigno, as he’s been cast to reprise his role as the Big Green Meanie’s voice in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hopefully this time he gets to say a little more than “puny god”.
