Marvel isn't going to blow a fortune making a movie that primarily ruins the characterization of a whole ton of people in order to derail everything that made the Hulk popular and successful in his most recent outing.
Amen, brotha

I'm looking forward to this and Planet Hulk if it happens. I agree, it's too early to act like this is gospel yet but I'm keen.
You're speaking in past tense about comic book characters; metaphysician is speaking in future tense about comic book MOVIE characters. Big difference. Hero vs. hero brouhahas make for good sales in 21st century comics because (a) the readership is small, niche, and primarily mature (at least teenage or older); and (b) you're working with characters within a universe that is 50 years old and in dire need of some fresh perspectives.

Doesn't work at all for a *cinematic* universe that is (a) targeted at an audience of hundreds of millions (if not billions) of people, with the core audience being the young kids who actually buy the merch; and (b) only five years old.

The MCU is still in its fledgling stages. This is the time when you keep *building* the supporting framework for the MCU, not start tearing it down with a damn sledgehammer.
