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).
I don't think so. People loved Hulk in the Avengers because of how he kicked Chitauri ass and his funny scenes with Loki and Thor, it wasn't specifically because he was a hero. With Planet Hulk, like Mayimbe said, you get to have a Hulk that fight aliens and conquer a planet rather than run from a bunch of military guys. It creates the opportunity to make a Hulk film that plays on the comic aspect of the character while also show him as a badass conquerer on a mission. It would be like Kratos from GoW. More I think about it it could be gold really.
