And again, you guys are taking this all too literally. The MCU is not going to revolve around the Hulk, it's just going to be an element of the verse.
Yeah, the only way I could see it working would be if bad guys
launched Hulk into space, and the Avengers are all like "oh noes, he's our friend and stuff". Have your Planet Hulk movie ("The Incredible Hulk 2: Planet Hulk"), then have him return to earth for WWHulk in Avengers 3, but make that only the first half. The Avengers calm him down, convince him that it was all the Council's idea instead of theirs, and then have Hulk regain his hero card for a second half battle against the *real* villain, such as Ultron or the Skrullies or something.
Still, no matter how you slice it, Hulk comes out of such a scenario with a big black eye in terms of popularity. The reason everybody loved Hulk in the Avengers movie is because HE'S FINALLY TREATED LIKE A HERO, instead of a hated monster. But if you believe Mayimbe, he goes right back to hated monster status in the very next film we see him in (Avengers 2).
