Sure to piss off Hulk and Marvel fans alike, Kevin Fiege has revealed in an interview that there will be no sequel to 2008’s The Incredible Hulk until after the release of The Avengers 2 in May 2015. There were previously rumours that due to the success of Hulk in The Avengers, Marvel Studios would quickly try and slip one in for early 2015 as an addition to Phase II, but that’s obviously not the case. Fiege also talks about the potential for movies based on Planet Hulk and World War Hulk.
“I don’t think there’s a lot that we couldn’t do someday, as the cinematic universe continues to grow and expand and get as big as the comic book universe. Planet Hulk’ is a cool story. ‘World War Hulk’ is a cool story. I think there’s pitfalls of continuity-overload, and mythology getting so dense that it almost collapses in on itself,” he added. “It happens every few decades or so in the comics. Apart from that, I’d say everything is on the table.”
“Do I think Hulk can carry a movie and be as entertaining as he was in ‘Avengers’? I do believe that. I do believe he absolutely could. We certainly are not even going to attempt that until ‘Avengers 2. So there’s a lot of time to think about it.”
I’d love to see adaptations of both, Planet Hulk in particular, but my one fear is that audiences will see it as another John Carter-style movie (which I hated) and barely anyone will see it, so I don’t know if Disney will be willing to invest in another movie like it.
