A few weeks ago, we posted a foreign language clip highlighting The Black Widow. Today, we have another foreign language clip, but this time it spotlights the not-so jolly green giant, The Incredible Hulk!
Just like the Black Widow clip, this clip, courtesy of Comic Book Movie, is meant to refresh the memories of the every day moviegoer as to who the Hulk is. Despite having two outings on the big screen already, it won’t hurt to give the public another little dose of gamma ray-powered rage spliced with some new Avengers footage to feast their eyes on. Check out the spot below.
While the Hulk and his alter ego, Bruce Banner, (and the actor playing him in ‘The Avengers’) have quite the fan following, head of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige doesn’t think that there will be another outing for the Hulk on the silver screen in his own movie. On the topic of putting together another Hulk movie down the line, Feige said this to The Huffington Post:
“Well, no. This was the other shot. Right? I mean, this was the third appearance of Hulk and everything that we had and were going for, we put in to Hulk’s appearance in ‘Avengers’. So, I love that people are saying that and are feeling that way about Hulk, but mission accomplished at this point. And the way we go forward, we’ll see. But it was a long road to get to this point. Although, I will say, after the screening, I heard various arguments over who was their favorite. Which is my favorite thing: Arguing what was the favorite moment or character. And the fact that so many of them are saying Hulk feels very, very good. Where we go next, we’ll see. But we’ll be very careful about it and deliberate — as we were in how we wanted to bring him back in ‘Avengers’.”
That’s very disappointing news to Hulk and Marvel fans everywhere. Yeah, Marvel epically failed with Ang Lee’s ‘Hulk’, but ‘The Incredible Hulk’ was a pretty awesome movie and, based on early rumblings, the Hulk is one of the best things about ‘The Avengers’. Maybe Marvel will come around and try again with a solo Hulk movie. I’m sure actor Mark Ruffalo would love that also. In an interview with IGN Movies, he mentioned that he’d love to do one, saying:
“Why not! It was the one character — you know, I was a comic book fan when I was a kid and I always loved the Hulk. When The Incredible Hulk, that show, came on, I would not miss that. And so if I was going to find myself in that world, this would be the guy that I would be most interested in doing. To make a very short answer long: Yeah, I’d love to have him do his own movie.“
Maybe if ABC starts the ball rolling on the Hulk TV show they have in development, Ruffalo can be involved in that. Get on that, Jeph Loeb!
