No 'Hulk' Stand Alone Movie Until at Least 2017; Kevin Feige Teases 'Planet Hulk'!

The Marvel Studios co-president also teases a 'World War Hulk' movie, but we won't see him again until 'The Avengers 2'.

The Incredible Hulk is one Marvel character that hasn't fared well on his own in the cinematic universe. He didn't really get a chance to shine and show his true potential on-screen until this past summer's Marvel's The Avengers. Which makes one think he might be better off as the cherry on top of an ensemble. But Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige doesn't see him that way, and plans to utilize the mammoth green wrecking machine a lot in the distant future.

In talking with MTV, Kevin Feige even went as far as to tease a live-action Planet Hulk (which was turned into an animated feature in 2010).

"I don't think there's a lot that we couldn't do someday, as the cinematic universe continues to grow and expand and get as big as the comic book universe. Planet Hulk is a cool story. World War Hulk is a cool story. I think there are pitfalls of continuity-overload, and mythology getting so dense that it almost collapses in on itself. It happens every few decades or so in the comics. Apart from that, I'd say everything is on the table.

Do I think Hulk can carry a movie and be as entertaining as he was in Marvel's The Avengers? I do believe that. I do believe he absolutely could. We certainly are not even going to attempt that until The Avengers 2. So there's a lot of time to think about it.

Part of what's fun about the way we played him in Marvel's The Avengers is the ensemble quality of it. I think the pathos and humor showcased a different element of Hulk that's there in the comics, and was always inherent in his character. But when he was so brooding in his other two films, he didn't get to have that wry sense of humor."


So, there you have it. According to Kevin Feige, there won't be another stand-alone Hulk until at least 2017 (yes, that's right, you do the math).

  6. Sean

    @ghostman Yeah i guess so. It would make more sense to say "After" the Avengers 2 though because when i first read the article, i thought it was mistakenly referring to "During" the release of the Avengers 2 when i read that it said "Until".

    @mcleve02 No it is not a truthful statement, it is not a truthful statement at all. It is not the equivalence as you saying that. Yes, lets please stop talking about it now, i would really appreciate it. The reason there has been so many comments later, after the discussion about the next hulk movie, is because you and others kept on bringing up the subject with me, saying that the sentence in the article means one thing, when in fact i know it means something else. Yes i am trying to listen , just stop saying those dumb things you were saying about my education that are not even true. They're not even true in the slightest bit.

    @themoviefanatic it's a truthful statement. Let me word it this way... With the way you said they should have worded it would be the equivalent as me saying "Christopher Nolan has given us the best greatest batman we have seen..." You don't need both greatest and best for the sentence to be proper and make sense, the same with the above. It's proper English. How many times do we have to tell you. Seriously just stop talking about it now. You clearly at least 90 comments later understood hulk comes out after avengers. I really don't feel like explaining sentence structure to you too because you're not even trying to listen...

    so that way they can cover more ground.

    I wish they would just merge both animated and real world, it would be so much easier.

    @themoviefanatic That's okay Sean, you misunderstood the sentence. Most people would know that "until The Avengers 2" means after.

    2 years agoby @ghostmanFlag

  14. Sean

    @ghostman Yeah, i guess you could say i misunderstood what it said for something else, because of the way it was worded in the article. He probably said what he said one way and then it was typed in a different way in the article, and If i am not mistaken sometimes things like that can end up happening.

    @mcleve02 No, i didn't receive horrible education in school and i haven't been so long out practice of using correct english, that i forgot what is proper and was isn't. Both those things that you said are not true. Re-read what you type before you post it on here, not for spell checking but to realize that you said is not only not true, but also very immature because you don't know my education and how well i know how to use correct english and what i know that is proper and what isn't.

    @themoviefanatic Didn't say you were the one calling me a dumbass. It was a joke, deal with it. It's good to know you FINALLY understand what this article was about :) you were confused over a simple mistake in understanding what was said.

    2 years agoby @ghostmanFlag

  17. Sean

    @ghostman I was not saying that you were a dumbass, so there is no reason for you to be calling me that. Also, yeah i already know that a Hulk movie will not be coming coming out until 2017, after the Avengers 2 is released in 2015.

  18. Ghostman

    @themoviefanatic Of course I know you weren't saying that The Avengers 2 will come out in 2017, I'm not that much of a dumbass like you are :P I'm glad you know that a Hulk movie won't come out until 2017, AFTER The Avengers 2.

    @themoviefanatic because you have either received horrible education in school or have been so long out of practice of using correct English that you forget what is proper and what isn't.

    @shuabert you still know what I mean. And that was just the initial contact by there was only more stupidity to follow. Trust me, brain damage! Haha. And we have considered ourselves "Americans" before we were even America. People from Mexico do not call themselves Americans, but Mexicans. Canada residents do not call themselves Americans, but Canadians... Son while you are technically correct, it is still well established that the US calls everything that is ours American and there is no excuse for not knowing that...

    @mcleve02 The Wal Mart girl is technically correct. The US is the United States of America. "America" refers to all of the North, Central, and South-American continents, so while she wasn't buying the common usage of "American" to refer to the USA, she also wasn't wrong.

    I'm not saying she necessarily wasn't stupid, I'm just saying there's a chance she was f*cking with you on a technicality.

    World War Hulk and Planet Hulk are cool stories, and really the only way I can see them pulling off a really good movie with Hulk as the main protagonist.

    @ghostman Yes, but what you have quoted that i said earlier, i wasn't saying that the Avengers 2 was coming out in 2017, i was referring to another Hulk movie coming out in 2017.

    @mcleve02 I see that its written improperly in the article. It is a mistake in the article. If i saw that it was not a mistake, then i would not be saying that it is.

    @themoviefanatic Holy sh*t, you ACTUALLY made sense this time and didn't sound like a f*cking retard:

    "Chill dude, chill! I already get it now, that another Hulk movie won't be filmed and released until after The Avengers 2 in 2017."

    I seriously think you're messing with us as you have shown that you can speak normally.

    @bawnian-dexeus B Alan doesn't ever comment anymore. Too many people yelled at him I guess... But that is true. Accusing him of writing incorrectly. How would he even respond to Sean on that one...

    The whole thing is seriously pathetic haha!

    @mcleve02 I'm surprised, given B. Alan's nature, that Sean hasn't received a verbal assault from him

    @themoviefanatic Sean that is not a mistake in the article. That is proper sentence structure and proper syntax. You have been delivered poor English abilities in school. We have told you this exact thing as well... Why are you not understanding this...
