Again: Hulk is a HERO now. Everybody looks up to him as an Avenger. That's key to Marvel's merchandising. You think Little Johnny with his Hulk toys is going to be happy if he sees (a) Hulk get dicked over by his friends, (b) Hulk rampage mindlessly through innocent civilians, (c) Hulk declare war on humanity.....you know, the same people he just got through saving in Avengers 1?
Like Power Cosmic said, Hulk killing tons of people will probably not be the reason or at the very least he won't be the one who did it, but could get blamed for it.
And I already explained why him being seen as a hero and Avenger is not why he was so popular in the film. Not to mention that by the end of A3 he WILL be an Avenger again and A2 is just a set up to make his solo film more interesting.

Since the info is not confirmed it's unnecessary. There are already three threads the Marvel Films section that are appropriate for this conversation.
