The Planet Hulk movie rumor has taken on a life of its own on the Internet. Whedon, Feige, and Ruffalo can’t do an interview without someone asking about the possibilities. You can imagine then, what happened when an alien character species from the Planet Hulk storyline showed up in James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy early production stills. You’ve got it. The Internet grabbed hold and ran like the wind with it. Gunn has commented about the subject before, but never with the vehemence of his latest attempt to smash the Planet Hulk movie rumor forever.

Joss Whedon has been working his tail off. He helped James Gunn cast Thanos for Guardians of the Galaxy. He’s constantly hounded by the press and has somehow found time to tweet layouts for new Buffy The Vampire stories. On top of all that, he’s been uniquely committed to the Avengers from day one, having completely trashed Zak Penn’s initial Disney draft and started from square one. The man is a machine and geeks everywhere are giving him all the just due love he deserves and he keeps paying back in dividends. With all he’s got to do, you’d think he’d spend his free time hanging out by the pool sipping margaritas. Instead, he powered on and talked movies with Entertainment Weekly. The topics ranged from J.A.R.V.I.S. To Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. (more…)

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…)

Here’s one video that features a look at the big three, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). (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…)
What does the team do now, when they are put against a megacorporation and Hydra, and they only have each other to rely on? Why exactly does Grant Ward feel that he owes everything to John Garrett? These are the question posed in the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but do the answers amp up the show’s momentum in time for the season finale? (more…)
