The joys of the Marvel Cinematic Universe stem from this universe’s collection of extraordinary – and wildly different – characters somehow managing to co-exist in the same universe. It’s always fun to pick up an issue of Captain America and see another superhero appear in to lend a helping hand. The movies have followed suit, with the heroes popping in and out of each other’s lives as they’re needed. The latest rumor smashing up the internet like Bruce Banner after a particularly stressful day suggests that the mightiest (and greenest) of the Avengers will play a role in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, lending support to the mighty son of Odin.

Although just about every Avengers character is set for an appearance in next year’s Captain America: Civil War, Bruce Banner is the rare exception. Mark Ruffalo confirmed last week that the Hulk would not appear in the film, putting to rest months of speculation.
But that, of course, just sparked fresh speculation about when the Hulk would resurface. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 seemed like a possibility, given the persistent Planet Hulk rumors that have suggested the Hulk might go into space, but director James Gunn has now gone on the record with an unequivocal denial that he has anything to do with the green guy.

For the past few months, we’ve been wondering whether the Hulk would drop in on Captain America: Civil War. There have been some hints that he might be, but Mark Ruffalo‘s name hasn’t been included on any cast lists so far. Now Ruffalo has put the speculation to rest once and for all: No, the Hulk is not in Captain America: Civil War. But he almost was.
According to Ruffalo, the character was originally slated to appear, but was later written out of the script. Find out why after the jump. Read More »
Since we’ve had two releases from Marvel Studios this year, there’s been plenty of talk about ranking the movies in the Marvel cinematic universe. But with 20th Century Fox’s reboot of Fantastic Four hitting theaters this weekend (for better or worse), we thought it was a good time to rank all the Marvel movies that exist outside of the MCU, which include Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, all the X-Men films and more.

Back in April, during publicity rounds for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, some new information surfaced regarding the future of The Incredible Hulk, and whether or not Marvel Studios had plans for Mark Ruffalo to get his own solo Hulk movie.
A somewhat surprising reason surfaced as to why a new Hulk movie wasn’t in the works. Ruffalo said that Universal (which made the two previous big-screen outings for the big guy) still had the rights to any future Hulk movies, putting a kink in any plans Marvel might have. However, it turns out that’s not entirely true, and Universal may not be holding up Marvel at all. Find out more about the Universal Hulk rights after the jump! Read More »
Just yesterday, we learned that director Joss Whedon ended up cutting what would have been Hulk’s best scene from The Avengers: Age of Ultron. While we don’t know what the scene entailed for sure, there’s a chance it could pop up in another Marvel film sometime down the road. However, it turns out another change to the big guy was also planned for the Marvel sequel. The original plan was for one of the major action sequences to have Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) become Grey Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Read More »
Every member of The Avengers gets at least one big moment to shine in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, with Vision and Hawkeye probably coming out on top. But one of the core members of the team, arguably the favorite from the first superhero assembly, had what would have been one of their greatest moments taken away. In a recent interview, director Joss Whedon said that the best Hulk scene in The Avengers: Age of Ultron was cut. Read More »

Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk emerged as one of the highlights of 2012’s The Avengers, and he has even more to do in this weekend’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. But let’s not forget that Ruffalo’s Hulk is actually the third big-screen incarnation of the character. The first was Eric Bana‘s version, in 2003’s Hulk directed by Ang Lee.
In the latest installment of their Honest Trailers series, the Screen Junkies gang takes aim at that original Hulk movie, by their estimation “the most forgettable movie about a giant rage-filled monster ever made.” Watch the Hulk Honest Trailer after the jump. Read More »
