Default Should Hulk Get Another Solo? What would it be about?

I have recently grown to like the hero in the MCU. I have always liked the Hulk 80's show, but hos films didn't look to great. After watching the most recent one, it only affirmed what I had thought, the actor just wasn't the right pick. In avengers however, once they announced Mark Ruffulo as Hulk, I gave Marvel a second chance. He is older, which is more what I like. On top of that he seems to fit the role better. He is quiet but when he speaks it is something worth talking about.

So more recently I saw a thread making a claim that Iron Man could be a co-star in Spider-man. That's not to be discussed here, but it got me thinking about why they haven't made another Hulk solo. I thought it was mainly just because the first one didn't go so well. Now that they have a new actor, I would almost want them to re-do the old hulk movie. However, I would much rather them just make another solo.

So I realized that if AoU causes Hulk to run off, (conveniently making sure the invincible green giant won't be on the same side as the Hustler which was basically the only hope to stop him) then Hulk would be able to either A) Run off to a foreign country to go into hiding again or B) Be launched into space like the comics had happen pre-Civil War. This is a pretty big if, especially now that we have seen more clips of Hulk. Either way, I think Marvel needs to develop Hulk a bit more. He has basically been a side character in the Avengers, who hasn't been explained any more than his solo movie, and so far it looks like he may work slightly differently.

So if he runs off, they could make another movie of Hulk in hiding, they could have a new villain that has never been shown in a Hulk movie. There are so many more villains than just Abomination! A villain could even be someone like Black Bolt, who ends up being a good guy. They could have any number of villains, for whatever reason.

If he gets thrown to space, some have theorize that he will be a side character in GoTG 2. If he was a large enough side character (hulk needing to be large enough? ) then this might be a good alternative to another solo. But I would rather him have a solo. They could go the rout of Planet Hulk if they went that direction though.

In the end there are almost limitless possibilities of how they could do it which would be based on the comics, and unlimited ways which would require no comic base.

So my question is: Would you want a Incredible Hulk solo 2? If so, what would be the basic storyline? What would the new villain be? How would they fit it in with the rest of the MCU timeline?

Also as a side note, the reason there hasn't been a new solo is because Universal has the rights to Hulk solo movies still.

So should Universal Studios work out a deal like sony did? Where a core director from Marvel is put on board to help direct hulk movies? (Currently Marvel makes money from Hulk in Marvel movies already, and I believe Universal makes money on solos)

Ant-Man and Pym particles exist in the MCU now so I'd like to see him go to the microverse and then in a sequel return but then we have Joe Fixit hiding out in Las Vegas. That's my personal preference.

Planet Hulk would be great at some point, but I feel like that's become the "go-to" answer.
I can't say I know a lot of Hulk stories so I'm not sure where would be the best direction to take the character.

That's another great idea! I don't know to much about Hulk, just what you can find with an hour or so of reading Marvel wiki articles.

Hulk should have his own Shared Universe. With movies for Hulk, She Hulk, Red Hulk, A-Bomb, Skaar, and Planet Hulk. It'll be awesome.

So like spiderman? I guess we don't know too much about spidey. But you mean like his movies would focus on Hulk and Hulk characters, and not tie in too much with the MCU, while still working the timeline. That way we don't get a movie where an MCU event takes over the storyline of a Hulk film, but vice-versa.
I like that idea!
If we can get an entire universe for Hulk, that would be awesome! It is much easier for Spider-man, as since he is a better known character he has more villains and stories, but I think they can EASILY do it with Hulk.

I wouldn't mind if in the movies they kept him as a side character. If they made an awesome mini series for TV. Bring it to Netflix, like they did with Dare Devil. Give me 13 solid episodes a year and I would be happy. Sure, the CGI would probably not be as high caliber but I want a good story and more development of Bruce Banner/Hulk.

We're never going to get a Netflix or TV Hulk show. Way too much money would be required, and Ruffallo is a film actor on the rise. He would be taking a step back to do TV.

I agree, it will not happen. I still can dream. I wouldn't need Ruffalo to play the part of Banner. I like him, but he is not someone I would say needs to play the part.

This is kinda depressing to me as a Hulk fan. He deserves redemption on the silver screen in his own solo adventure after the mixed bags that were Hulk and The Incredible Hulk. I also voted for the space setting. I want Planet Hulk this time around. We already got 2 movies with Hulk on Earth. 3 or 4 if you count The Avengers movies. Time to switch it up. There's more to his mythos than just rampaging through deserts and open cities.

Yeah, Planet Hulk is the go-to answer for a reason. I can't say I'm falling all over myself for another Hulk on the run from General Ross and then fights a big Hulk monster at the end movie.

Planet Hulk or bust. It could also gives us direct GotG involvement in the wider MCU.

If they went with Planet Hulk, could they possibly bring in Captain Marvel?
I just don't personally like the GoTG idea much. We already have a talking racoon, a walking tree, and a buff Vulcan who makes it clear he doesn't understand why he's funny. I'm not sure I would want someone as big as the Hulk appearing in their film... he would take too much away from the rest of the crew. On top of that, I like Banner as much as I do Hulk, and it seems like it may be harder to put Banner in with the Gaurdians crew, as a human. He could be the guy who knows how to build a spacecraft maybe... or be the doctor to heal ppl, or even make special injections or something. Maybe it's just me though... I'm okay with him going to space though, just if he sees them it should be more of a, "Thanks for the ride back to earth" than a "thanks for teaming up with me".

No. I don't think the Hulk is that interesting on his own. We already had two Hulk movies and they felt basically the same.

The rights to the Hulk are so annoyingly confusing...Marvel can include him in their group stuff but don't have the rights under the Marvel studio name to make a solo film.

Should they make a solo film? No...it should be a Marvel team up. Either Iron Man or maybe take Hulk off world to join Thor on an adventure.

That wasn't the Hulk. That was a big SFX thing standing in for the Hulk. Both times. Hulk is a character.

Marvel could make a solo film if they want. Universal would be the distributor. Disney wants to distribute all the Marvel films now. They would have to pay Universal an expensive fee. Not really worth it when you can include Hulk in any ensemble flick for free.

As Hulk is my all time favorite CB character,I'm pretty disappointed Marvel seems to be dragging their heels when it comes to his own solo.

I think the problem is there is a large number of "old school" fans like myself,that really have no interest in the Hulk beyond the classic "Hulk Smash" incarnation. I have zero interest in Planet Hulk,Grey Hulk, Joe Fixit- whatever.

But, the other side of that is the people who had enough of the "Hulk Smash" and want to take the Hulk down other avenues.

I think Marvel is just content to have the Savage Hulk and let him out of the box for the Avengers every few years.

I suppose I got the Hulk movie I always wanted in TIH. But even there they barely tapped the potential.

I wouldn't mind a Hulk sequel on Earth. But the whole Hulk in space arc seems over rated and Planet Hulk feels too much like Civil War. Way too many Earth stories and villains that haven't been utilized.

Default Re: Should Hulk Get Another Solo? What would it be about?

I think it has to be War World Hulk, not quite a solo, but it's one of the very few ways Marvel will be 100% confident to bring on another hulk movie. Yes, we all love Hulk from the avengers but half of the reasons are becoz of his interaction with other superheroes.

While you can have him vs red hulk/bring in she-hulk, I think people are more keen to see superhuman vs hulk rather than a monsters fight like TIH.

Although, it'll be expensive as f***. They can get way with it in a smaller scale film where he does not go full action til the 3rd act. But if Marvel makes a WWH, HULK's screen time will double/triple. That could be as expensive as an Avengers film. But judging from the structure of the current MCU, how fast things are moving and how unexpected these massive things have been dropping onto us, that can totally happen.

I don't think Hulk works for me in a solo film. He's great in limited amounts like as an additional member in a team-up film where he gets 10m or so but a whole film about Hulk is just incredibly boring to me. Too much good of a thing can be bad. That's my opinion.
