I started playing the game Marvel Contest of Champions on my phone a couple months ago and find it quite addicting. The graphics and screen play are great and the fights are very enjoyable. But, the best part by far is watching the Hulk smash the Marvel Universe – both heroes and villains alike. I recently downloaded a screen capture app and thought I would share the Hulk’s conquests here. Any other players out there? Player or not, click the links below to view the Hulk’s battles and enjoy the ride as the he journeys along his quest to smash and prove once and for all that HULK IS THE STRONGEST OF ALL!
First up on the hit list is Dr. Voodoo. Stay tuned for more!
Check the video below for a funny short clip from Thor: Ragnarok where the question of who strongest Avenger of all is clearly answered. Early movie reviews are coming back very positive and it is very evident that this movie will contain lots of Hulk and Banner while having a backbone of humor in what sounds to be a GOTG styled approach. Win-Win!
It looks like Bandai Figuarts will be releasing a Hulk figure from the Thor: Ragnarok movie. Want better news? These sound like they will be available in the states which should help with pricing/acquisition. No details on price but the figure looks to be in the same scale as the previous Hulk figure they produced so approximately around 6 inches. Marvel Toy News released a nice article if you’d like to read a bit more. Click pictures to enlarge.
Marvel has solved the issue of not having the rights to make solo Hulk films but creating a 3 part story arc in 3 MCU movies: Thor Ragnarok, Avengers Infinity War, and Avengers 4. Mark Ruffalo recently revealed some high level discussions with Kevin Feige that give some insight on the how the Hulk story might unfold. Geektyrant.com shared these plans recently – click here to read. I have also excerpted a few key quotes from Ruffalo below. I am not at all surprised to hear this but do find it interesting to see that the story will explore Hulk developing a separate personality from Banner as there are just so many possibilities that can be explored with this approach. More importantly, we will get 2 additional movies with heavy Hulk story and character development in 2018 and 2019! WOOT!
“So basically, Kevin [Feige] pulled me aside before this, and said, ‘If you were gonna do a… if we were going to do a standalone Hulk movie, what would it be?’ And I said, ‘I think it should be this, this, this, and this and this, and ends up like this.’ And he’s like, ‘I love that. Why don’t we do that in the next three movies, starting with Thor 3 and then we go into Avengers 3 and 4.’ And I was like, ‘That sounds great!’ And so we are at the beginning of this arc.”
“Hulk speaking is the start to separating of these two individuals, these identities in this split-identity person, and where that’s going to end up going. So it was really interesting to me. He’s like a baby! He’s like a five year old or six year old. So he has the same syntax, he has the same world view, and so it was fun. It’s like Chris [Hemsworth] – we all got to reinvent our characters in this.”

This is the point where movie companies flirt with how much movie footage to release without giving too much of the movie away. The scene below is AWESOME but also makes you wonder how much they are holding back for the movie. As much as I may want to leave it for the theater, I can’t NOT watch this. Enjoy, if you choose!

BANNER REGAMMIFICATION 100 PERCENT COMPLETE!
Lost (well, maybe not lost but certainly never seen before) Paul Pelletier artwork found! I am extremely proud and humbled to be the owner of the artwork below that was part of the creative process for Hulk issue 610. In speaking to Paul, this art was the initial drawing for the Hulk reintroduction spread before he decided to change the angle and perspective to what you see published in the comic. I am thrilled beyond belief to be able to say this is part of my collection.
Hulk issue 610, written by Greg Pak and drawn by Paul Pelletier was a great Hulk comic from a few years ago. The story has a de-powered Bruce Banner absorbing gamma radiation from the Leader and M.O.D.O.K.’s machine in order to help the Hulked-out-heroes revert to normal and save the earth. Once Banner has absorbed all of the gamma radiation, the Hulk is able to return in full gamma glory. Paul Pelletier really flexes his artistic muscle on the double page spread where the Hulk returns. I originally wanted to buy the published art from this issue but the original pages are owned by a good friend and are in his permanent collection (trust me, I know).
The Hulk is in demand and continues to show up in commercials (previously in Coke and Renault commercials), this time as a UnitedHealthCare customer Hulking out on the phone and kicking a couch out of his house (Hulk movie 2003 style). This one is pretty brief and the Hulk looks a tad bit on the thin side but who’s complaining? Not me!
