Well, we have one for books and music. I went 30 pages deep to find a general movie discussion post. So I figured I would just start this. A thread to talk about and any and all movies and things movie related. Mostly to discuss this.
I have thought for a while now that this was coming. Did they really lock up Ruffalo for 6 movies just to have the Hulk in a few Avengers movies? I’ve read quotes from Whedon about the next Avengers being darker in tone. And the Hulk being pushed to “dark places”. Which could involve Ultron. But it’s speculation. All of it is. I think it could work though.
Hulk came out of the last Avengers movie golden. People loved him. He had one of if not the most talked about moments in the film. it’s like those last 2 Hulk movies never happened. maybe Hulk alone isn’t enough. maybe he needs an ensemble for him to really shine. Planet Hulk and World War Hulk could provide that. The Warbound. He doesn’t HAVE to carry the movie all by himself. It’s like LoTR. Frodo is the focus, but we all love Legalos.
Use the other characters to build up The Hulk. To put him in a world you care about, then it will make you care about him. And, you know, smash a lot of shit. right off the bat, Planet Hulk would make a fantastic movie. The animated version was actually pretty good in my opinion. I think the problem could be World War Hulk. It’s a massive story that would cover every facet of the Marvel Universe under Disney’s banner.
But, again, Age of Ultron movie. It’s like they are trying their hand at the the big event series from the comics. Yes, Age of Ultron got really stupid toward the end, but I trust Whedon. And I think, given time, his team could come up with something pretty good for the screen. And they said they aren’t gonna really do a big Hulk movie til after Avengers 2, so they got plenty of time. And, as big as WWH is, I think ti would work better than Civil War, Secret Invasion, and many of the other Marvel Universe events.
Still sucks they don’t have the X-Men. Days of Future Past looks awesome though. FOX is all in.
