REVEALED: Infinity War writer confirms who Hulk met in the Soul Stone

April 28th, 2020 by Marc Comments


We finally have an answer to one of Avengers: Endgame’s threads left hanging at the end of the movie.

We all know that when Thanos acquired the Soul Stone in Avengers: Infinity War he entered what is called the Soul World and, while in there he saw a younger version of his daughter Gamora (the only person Thanos ever loved, apparently) and we know that, thanks to a deleted scene (below) that Tony Stark met an older version of his daughter, Morgan (played by Katherine Langford), but we never found out who (Professor) Hulk met.

Deleted scene with Tony and Morgan:

But now we have an answer to who Hulk met.

During ComicBook’s #QuarantineWatchParty last night, Avengers: Endgame writer Christopher Markus revealed it was Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner who entered the Soul Stone and while in there he encountered… the Hulk:

“We did write one, a conversation between Hulk and Banner, but it didn’t make it to camera.” says Markus.

“Ruffalo showed up but Hulk wouldn’t come out of his trailer.”

Given how Hulk feared Thanos in Infinity War and given his stubborn nature, this makes sense and, I guess, in the context of the story and character, it would make sense thematically too… it just seems like a little bit of a cheat.

Anyway, we now know the three meetings in the Soul World were Thanos and Gamora, Tony and Morgan and now Banner and Hulk.

So, what say you all? Does that make sense? Do you think it’s a good answer? I want to hear those thoughts, guys…

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….
