It could *maybe* work as a Hulk 3. But for an immediate Hulk sequel? You really need something more earthbound, that deals with the idea of "The Hulk: Superhero".
I agree, Donna Shuler is the executive producer. maybe someone will advise her to keep BANNER'S character arc. growing . show general audience why HULK is consider a SUPER HERO first.
