The fate of Hulk after Avengers: Age of Ultron (Major spoiler)


If you don’t want to be SPOILED, I highly suggest you look away now.

Final Warning!

After watching Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk in The Avengers movie, the public had more interest in the green giant again. Many wondered whether Hulk would have a standalone film, and Ruffalo has said before that he’s down. Some people speculated that a Planet Hulk film could be in the works.

In an interview with MTV, Ruffalo said that there’s not going to be a Planet Hulk movie.

“They launch Bruce Banner into space to try to get rid of him and the Hulk. He ends up freaking out, smashing up the spaceship, and it goes off course and ends up on this planet of gladiator creatures,” Ruffalo summarized. “He falls in love, has a Hulk baby … and then the Avengers nuke the planet.”

It looks like Ruffalo knows a thing or two about the story arc, and he then explains why a Planet Hulk movie wouldn’t be a good thing now.

“I don’t think [‘Planet Hulk’] is the way to go yet,” he said. “I think you need more Banner. The whole thing is just him as Hulk, on a planet, fighting other gladiators.”

Now HitFix’s Drew McWeeny, who was on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, chimes in to reveal the fate of the Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron and what his role will be in Avengers 3. Even though Planet Hulk has be debunked by the actor, fans of the Planet Hulk storyline will be happy with Phase Three.

“Bruce Banner continues to play a key role in things in [Avengers: Age of Ultron], and when the final war with Ultron spills onto the battlefield and out of the virtual realm, he has a major part to play. Unfortunately, that ends with him onboard a Quinjet on his way off the planet, with no way to immediately turn things around. He’s going to have to ride out the trip. It’s pre-programmed and he can’t stop it.”

Planet Hulk is the result of the Hulk getting shot into outer space. But that’s where the similarities end. McWeeny thinks that the Quinjet will lead to the Hulk meeting up with the Guardians of the Galaxy. That means we might see him in the Guardians sequel.

“I suspect we’ll see some sequences that very much feel like they’re part of Planet Hulk story,” McWeeny writes, “but the larger story will be about the Guardians finding a way to get Banner home, only to end up going with them.”

That means that we’re likely going to get the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Hulk traveling back to wherever the Avengers and Thanos are going to be at, leading us to Avengers 3. What do you guys think of this?

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1, 2015.

    As a huge Hulk fan, I’m not thrilled about Hulk joining the Guardian’s of the Galaxy. A lesser known franchise with a Raccoon!?! That’s as bad as the clay-mation (horrible CGI) from the first Hulk. They’ve already established Groot as the muscle, so do they diminish Hulk by allowing Groot to match his power? You have to low intelligent brutes having a conversation on physics… I Groot….. I Hulk…. Please Nooooooo!

    I agree I don’t believe the original World War Hulk should be made because its a game ender, Hulk battling all the superheros!

    Personally I would like to see the Hulk and the Abomination going at it again, Since Hulk officially got handled by the Abomination in their first tryst! In the comics Hulk lost the first battle but destroyed the Abomination every time after to the point where he actually feared Hulk. This is a opportunity to introduce the Leader (professor blue) and his Gamma infected Minions. The Leader had to hypnotize/Mind Meld the Abomination to fight the Hulk again. Which of course he lost.

      Have you actually read any Guardians Of The Galaxy? The Abnett/Lanning run was the best thing on the racks during it’s 30-odd issues. The film is based on that run, and if they’ve got it right, Rocket is going to become a major star and the breakout character. Also, Groot is not a “low intelligent brute”. It only SOUNDS like he’s saying “I am Groot”. He’s actually the ruler of his people and a master tactician, so a conversation on physics would be on the cards, if Bruce can learn Groot’s language.

        the expression is “in the cards”.

        • Carl Pickles

          Erm… no it isn’t. Don’t know about you, but I’m a native English speaker with over 40 years experience. An anonymous troll is calling my syntax and knowledge of the English language into question? If you’re going to do it, grow a spine and show yourself rather than being an internet commando.

          • Cletis

            American English versus British English. In America, it is actually “in the cards”.

          • Danski72

            Its not British English, its just English. Call what you have American English if you want, but its just bastardisation of English.

          • deferet

            And English is a bastardization of “Middle English” which is an off shoot of “Old English” which was brought over by Germanic settlers in Britain… What’s your point? Your British English is not the original spoken language of English so get off you high horse before you hurt yourself by falling off.

          • Cletis

            Point taken. Read my reply to Carl Pickles for my viewpoint and brief reasoning behind that post.
            Thanks for clearing that up. And, it’s logic that I can apply to other things as well. Now I can fully comprehend that you’re not a British pointy-headed butthole, you are just a pointy-headed butthole, independent of where you come from.

          • Carl Pickles

            That’s fair enough, Cletis. Your version of the language split off from the original line something like 300 years ago and reintroduced the German influence. We really are two people divided by a common language.

            “British English” doesn’t really exist. Neither does “American English”. There are regional variations in vocabulary, syntax and pronunciation. Despite what certain people will say, there’s no such thing as “correct English” outside of a textbook.

            In the UK, though, the language has evolved naturally with no real interference until something like the last 70 years, when the homogenisation caused the spread of mass auditory media really started to have an effect.

            In America, on the other hand, the German influence was reintroduced along with several other European languages which altered the flow of the development, changing the path of the language, reintroducing grammatical constructions and words that had fallen out of use in the “Mother Tongue”, and introducing new ones.

            If you think about it, though, “on the cards” is more literally correct, since things are printed ON cards. With the German influence, and with how literal a language German is, I’m somewhat surprised the American version isn’t “on the cards”, too.

          • Cletis

            Yep. I only capitalized American and British out of respect for both. Just wanted to differentiate, and it sounded loads more legitimate than saying, “That’s how we say it ’round here” in a thick redneck accent.
            “In the cards” strikes a chord with me, as it’s not a literal phrase. Things are printed on cards, but are used in the interpretation of something unrelated, rather than explicitly spelling out the situation. Tarot cards are where I thought this came from. Events are not defined on the cards… but can be found in the meanings.

          The expression is, in fact, in the cards. Sorry Carl.

  • JVincent

    If they hadn’t fire Norton, think how more awesome this could be….
    But noooooo can’t have actors wanting input on their character, can we?

    • Durg

      Honestly I thought Norton was terrible as Banner. The science aspect to him seemed forced where it’s natural with Ruffalo. But that’s just.. like… my opinion Man.

      • smarti09

        You are not allowed to have an opinion, cause THIS IS DA INTERNET!

      • festie

        never liked ruffalo until avengers. and the more I watch it the more I like him as banner. and this is the best hulk yet. you can see banner in the cgi. couldn’t do that with the 1st 2.

  • Teeheehee

    It’s only a spoiler to people who never read the comics :P LOL Oh yeah, it’s not even a legit spoiler. The Avengers never nuked planet Sakaar. Meik killed Hulk’s unborn baby and wife with a bomb.

    • jalen Vantrease

      His baby survived, And was born in fire. The baby was later known to be skaar,

  • Khan

    Hul off planet… Guardians of the Galaxy… new Dr. Strange move… it can (should) lead to only one thing: THE DEFENDERS!

  • Je Ar D Bagus

    I think it’s a good twist, but I’d love it if the Hulk will get another solo movie.
