How the Grey Hulk almost appeared in Avengers: Age of Ultron


The new Avengers film has been tearing its way through the box office over the weekend. Recently Wired Magazine did a behind-the-scenes video with ILM about the film and how the visual effects company approached creating The Avengers’ new adventure.

About half way through the video, it is revealed that there was originally a plan to turn the Hulk grey during the Hulkbuster fight with Iron Man.

Initially, Hulk was actually planned to turn grey when he is angry Hulk in the Hulkbuster sequence, but hey everyone want the green guy. So in the end, ILM just changed his eyes to make them look more sullen when he is under the control of Scarlet Witch.”

The origin for the character comes from Stan Lee, who wanted to make The Hulk originally grey, but due to problems with ink he changed the color to green. Grey Hulk later went on to become a well known alter ego of Bruce Banner in the comics. Unlike the widely popular Green Hulk, Grey Hulk is much more cunning and intelligent. He does not have the full strength of the Green Hulk, but his elevated intelligence is what helps him out think his opponents. Grey Hulk also goes by the name Joe Fixit.

It makes sense why Marvel and Joss Whedon decided to not go this route and introduce this character.
