Could the next Hulk movie be Planet Hulk? Fiege thinks maybe…

September 24th, 2012 by Marc Comments

We ran the story before the weekend that we won’t be seeing another Hulk movie until after Avengers 2 (here), but now Marvel movie chief Kevin Feige has been talking about just what that movie may be…

Feige was talking to MTV about how the studio would really like to bring some of Hulk’s big comic adventures to the big screen, and quite excitingly, he also pointed out they are thinking outside the stories penned by Stan Lee.

Feige teased that Planet Hulk and World War Hulk are ‘cool’ stories.

For those who don’t know, Planet Hulk was written by Greg Pak in 2006 and sees the world’s superheroes deciding Hulk is far too dangerous, so they strand him on an alien world where he becomes a slave and a gladiator fighting to stay alive.

In the sequel series, World War Hulk, Hulk escapes his slavery and returns to earth looking for revenge against those who out cast him.

Would these stories work in the new Marvel movie-verse? Well, if you’d asked us when Iron Man was released, we’d have said no way; but now that we have alien hoards, Thanos and the Guardians of the Galaxy coming? Hell, yes these would work. And with Mark Ruffalo being the best Hulk ever commited to film – admittedly under Joss Wedon’s genius – we’d love to see Hulk take on a story this big, rather than the running from soldiers stories we’ve gotten pre-Avengers.

Hulk is still widely seen as a mindless monster, it’s time that was changed…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
