Possible Massive Spoilers For The Future Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe Follow.

LatinoReview has learned of the possible long-rage plans for Marvel’s Phase 2 & Phase 3 of their cinematic universe. Plans which include The Hulk as a major player and even possibly getting his own solo film after Avengers 2. If Latino Review’s sources are correct the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will follow this blue print.

  • Don’t expect to see the Hulk until 2015′s ‘The Avengers 2’, as per Feige.  DO expect to see a third act or post-credits scene of the sequel that sets up Hulk’s next standalone picture (Planet Hulk)
  • After being deemed a serious threat to the Earth by Marvel’s Illuminati (a secret organization of powerful heroes that includes Tony Stark, the soon to be introduced Doctor Strange, Black Bolt, Black Panther, etc…), the Hulk is sent off into space against his will.
  • With  Hulk off planet and in the far reaches of the galaxy he crash lands on an alien planet. This will give The Hulk lots of new opportunities to smash all new sorts of enemies. 
  • The solo Hulk film will center around the the arc of ”Planet Hulk” as he becomes enslaved on the planet Sakaar, is forced to participate in gladiatorial games and eventually becomes a hero of the rebellion  against the Red King.
  •  At the end of Planet Hulksome events transpire that get the Hulk pretty even more enraged at the Illuminati. Now The Hulk is madder than ever and also has an army super strong followers.  The theory goes that Hulk and his warbound fighters will return to Earth in The Avengers 3 to follow Greg Pak’s ‘World War Hulk’ story arc.
  • Avengers 3 (World War Hulk) will have the Hulk and his warriors defeating every hero and heroic team on Earth, eventually pitting them against each other in the Hulk’s own version of gladiatorial combat.
  • One thing that makes the standalone Hulk movie more probable is the fact that Mark Ruffalo has signed on for a six-picture deal with Marvel. 

What makes this scoop seem legit is that Marvel has been very tenacious about trying to silence Latino Review about letting these details loose.

It’s all but officially confirmed by Marvel that ‘Iron Man 3’ will send Tony Stark into space as a bridge for ’ Guardians of the Galaxy’ which will lead into Avengers 2. Having Avengers 2 which will focus on Thanos as the cosmic threat will open the door for Marvel sending their heroes into space whenever they want. Since Marvel hasn’t introduced enough heroes to make a Civil War film it would make sense to go down the route of Planet Hulk and World War Hulk

Marvel was very  ambitious with their plans for ‘Iron Man’ to lead into The Avengers five years later. Now if they can pull of their Phase 2 and Phase 3 plans to tackle these large scale stories I think any fan of the films and comics will be truly impressed. Plus, this is all just a rumor right now.

Am I the only one who loves/is baffled by Latino Review’s monopoly on Marvel leaks?

ABC Developing ‘Incredible Hulk’ Series | Deadline

popculturebrain:

The Incredible Hulk is muscling his way to primetime TV. ABC is in very early stages of…

This probably won’t be good. There’s no way TV budgets can afford the CGI necessary to make the Hulk look anything but cheesy. Just ask Ang Lee.

Let’s just sit back and imagine cameos by Edward Norton and Eric Bana.

And Lou Ferrigno?

The Incredible Hulk is muscling his way to primetime TV. ABC is in very early stages of development of a live-action series adaptation of the popular Marvel comic book character. There is no writer on board yet with search underway. Marvel, which was acquired by ABC parent Disney last year for $4 billion, started a major push in TV in June with the launch of Marvel Television whose goal was to adapt Marvel characters and stories to the small screen. Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb and his team quickly zeroed in on The Hulk, with rumors of a potential Hulk live-action series first surfacing in mid-summer. 

This probably won’t be good. There’s no way TV budgets can afford the CGI necessary to make the Hulk look anything but cheesy. Just ask Ang Lee.

Move over Ed Norton, someone else with a built in beastly alter-ego could play the green one. He’s just been method the whole time.

This is getting juicy. Previously, Marvel indicated their decision was not about salary, as sources had indicated to HitFix originally  but “instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members.”

Here’s what Norton’s rep had to say…

Brian Swardstrom of WME responds with the following:

"This offensive statement from Kevin Feige at Marvel is a purposefully misleading, inappropriate attempt to paint our client in a negative light.  Here are the facts:  two months ago, Kevin called me and said he wanted Edward to reprise the role of Bruce Banner in The Avengers.  He told me it would be his fantasy to bring Edward on stage with the rest of the cast at ComiCon and make it the event of the convention.  When I said that Edward was definitely open to this idea, Kevin was very excited and we agreed that Edward should meet with Joss Whedon to discuss the project.  Edward and Joss had a very good meeting (confirmed by Feige to me) at which Edward said he was enthusiastic at the prospect of being a part of the ensemble cast.  Marvel subsequently made him a financial offer to be in the film and both sides started negotiating in good faith.  This past Wednesday, after several weeks of civil, uncontentious discussions, but before we had come to terms on a deal, a representative from Marvel called to say they had decided to go in another direction with the part.  This seemed to us to be a financial decision but, whatever the case, it is completely their prerogative, and we accepted their decision with no hard feelings.

We know a lot of fans have voiced their public disappointment with this result, but this is no excuse for Feige’s mean spirited, accusatory comments.  Counter to what Kevin implies here, Edward was looking forward to the opportunity to work with Joss and the other actors in the Avengers cast, many of whom are personal friends of his.  Feige’s statement is unprofessional, disingenuous and clearly defamatory.  Mr. Norton talent, tireless work ethic and professional integrity deserve more respect, and so do Marvel’s fans.

According to Marvel sources, the company has decided that they are going to cast “an unknown” to play Bruce Banner and The Hulk in the film.” Most likely to keep costs down because Norton is too expensive, but the article continues to say that Norton would be game to negotiate. Why you gotta be like the Marvel.

Sad news.

Regarding the Hulk: “We certainly plan on it. He was there in ‘The Avengers’ #1 and in ‘The Ultimates’ #1 so certainly the Hulk is a key part of these films leading up to ‘The Avengers.’ ‘Iron Man 2’ has some clues to where these timelines take place as they relate to each other. So I certainly think Hulk will be a player on that team.

Regarding Norton: “A lot of it depends on the story, a lot of it depends on the schedule and a lot of it depends on the lofty ideas that we have. You also have to work with the real ties of people’s schedules as to when they are available and stuff like that. So we reserve the right to say Hulk will be in it for sure, we’ll see about Banner.

Norton’s turn as Bruce Banner/Hulk was just as good, if not better than RDJ’s Iron Man. The Avengers with a one dimensional Hulk and no Banner to back it up, or Ed Norton to fill the shoes, will be dissapointing. I can’t image Whedon backing that up.
