Marvel's Plan for "The Hulk" Revealed?

From worstpreviews, Marvel will begin Phase Two of its cinematic universe with "Iron Man 3" in May. But now, LatinoReview is claiming that it knows some details of "The Avengers 2," as well as Phase Three and the studio's plans for The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Since none of this has been confirmed, consider it a rumor.


According to the site, "The Avengers 2" will feature the comic book version of the Illuminati, a secret group comprised of Doctor Strange, Black Bolt, Charles Xavier, Reed Richards, Namor and Iron Man. Since Marvel can't use some of those characters, the structure of the group will likely change.

At the end of "The Avengers 2," the Illuminati will decide that The Hulk is simply too dangerous and will banish him from Earth into space. In Phase Three we'll see a new Hulk movie, which will follow the storyline of "Planet Hulk," in which the banished Hulk finds himself a gladiator on an alien world.

The end of Phase Three will result in "The Avengers 3," which will feature Hulk's return. That storyline will follow "World War Hulk," in which the Hulk returns to Earth to get revenge on those who sent him away.

Hmm. Some of that sounds interesting, but a lot of it sounds too "comic-booky" to actually wind up being what the movie's about, if that makes any sense.

That is, I just looked up the Wiki entries for the comic stories Planet Hulk and World War Hulk and they don't quite sound like they're on par with the movie we saw last summer.

I hear what you're saying Octo. I'm just glad they're seemingly intertwining the Marvel movies more and more.

Speaking of Hulk, we're only 3 episodes away of finishing the 5th and last season of the Bill Bixby show. *sniffle* We've been slowly combing through them over the past year and as I've said before - they're wonderful!
