Can Mark Ruffalo finally get his due?

That doesn’t seem like it will happen, Ruffalo told an intrepid reporter at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. In fact, don’t count on seeing a standalone Hulk film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at all.

black order

Minions. Henchmen. Sidekicks. Soldiers. Call them whatever you want, but every worthy villain has a bunch of them, ready to do their evil bidding. And since the “Mad Titan” Thanos is the Big Bad of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, he’s got to have at least a handful of menacing assistants ready and willing to wreak havoc in his name.

Thanks to the Marvel booth at this year’s D23 Expo, we finally have a look at the henchmen of Thanos, who will surely prove themselves to be handful for Earth’s mightiest heroes when they arrive in Avengers: Infinity War next year.

the incredibles 2

2004’s The Incredibles ends with a stirring call-to-action, the promise of one more big action scene, and then…a cut to the credits, spurred on Michael Giaccchino’s thrilling musical score. It’s a perfect ending for a near-perfect superhero movie: the promise of more adventure for the super-powered and united Parr family, even if we don’t get to see it.

However, it looks like The Incredibles 2 will finally let us see exactly what goes down between the heroic family and the villainous Underminer. It’ll just take 14 years.

When it became clear the filmmaker wasn’t going to make his epic finale a reality, the demon’s creator, Mike Mignola, decided to move on with the reboot – which was originally envisioned as remaining in the world del Toro established on the big screen.

Below, Mignola discusses the Hellboy reboot.
