One of the biggest stories throughout the entire 10 year history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been The Incredible Hulk. The 2008 film starring Edward Norton has been regarded as the black sheep of the family since the role was recast from Norton to Mark Ruffalo.
The films rights for The Hulk has always been tricky as he is allowed to be involved in MCU films but not the focus of a solo movie. Standalone Hulk movies are the property of Paramount Studios.
However, this fact has not stopped fans from asking the powers-that-be at Marvel Studios if the Hulk will ever get his own adventure. And sure enough, Kevin Feiger was asked this very question during a recent press junket for the upcoming “Thor: Ragnarok.” This is what he had to say of the subject.
“I think that back and forth continues, and I don’t know if it will ever happen. But I will tell you, it makes me very, very happy going from a world, ten years ago, when people were questioning the viability of Hulk in a standalone film, to getting asked every other interview, ‘When will there be another standalone Hulk?”
So while it doesn’t look good, Feige seems rather hopeful. Especially given the new working relationship between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios over the film rights of Spider-Man.
Despite not being able to tell another live-action story about The Strongest There Is, Marvel promises to tell a complete story arc over The Hulk’s next three film appearances, “Thor: Ragnarok,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” and the Untitled fourth Avengers movie.
