Mark Ruffalo has clearly become the perfect version of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Hulk though it has never been clear if ‘The Incredible Hulk’ was still canon, until now. It looks like the upcoming ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘ prequel comic is going to be giving some details about Banner’s origins which means we may finally find out what is and isn’t canon for the World-Breaker.
According to a synopsis for the book, we’ll see it show the following:
The stage is set for 2017’s far-out fantasy epic, Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok! Catch up on the incredible events of Thor: The Dark World and learn where major players including Odin, Loki, and Thor himself stand ahead of the next blockbuster chapter in Asgardian lore! And revisit the origin of Ragnarok’s other headline star, the Incredible Hulk!
Plus: Classic comic-book tales featuring the two mightiest Avengers of all! Thor enters the underworld to face Hela – and the Hulk does savage battle on an alien world! It’s cinematic action in the Mighty Marvel Manner!
That last line of the first section is the key takeaway when it comes to the Hulk. As footage from ‘The Incredible Hulk’ as well as a certain general has made their way into Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, I suspect that it will still be considered canon though if they wanted to retcon things at all – this would be the time to do it.
Are you looking forward to finding out if this will make the past movie officially canon or not? Do you feel that Edward Norton’s work should be part of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe or stand on its own? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
‘Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok Prelude’ is scheduled to be released on October 17th, 2017.
