Marvel Generations to bring back the Hulk this summer (2017)

We all knew that Hulk’s days as being dead were numbered; it was always just a question of how long. Marvel has announced that the Hulk and many of his fellow “dead” characters will be brought back to life in the upcoming Generations story line. The heroes will be brought back and paired with the character that has assumed their mantle while they were gone. For Hulk, this means that Bruce Banner and Amadeus Cho will be together once again but this time they will both be gamma-powered.  The Hulk story will be written by Greg Pak. According to the articles posted, this will be part of Marvel canon, not a gimmick or alternate continuity.  I am a bit skeptical but will hold judgment until after the story is revealed. I am just happy that the Hulk is back and hoping that Greg Pak will write a great story to explain his return. If they stop calling Cho the Hulk it can’t be all bad. The 10 part story will pair the characters below and run from July to September.

  • Iron Man (Tony Stark and Riri Williams)—written by Brian Michael Bendis
  • Spider-Man (Peter Parker and Miles Morales)—Brian Michael Bendis
  • Marvel (Carol Danvers and Kamala Khan)—G. Willow Wilson
  • Thor (Odinson and Jane Foster)—Jason Aaron
  • Hawkeye (Clint Barton and Kate Bishop)—Kelly Thompson
  • Hulk (Bruce Banner and Amadeus Cho)—Greg Pak
  • Jean Grey (young and older)—Dennis Hopeless
  • Wolverine (Logan and X23)—Tom Taylor
  • Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell and Carol Danvers)—Margie Stohl
  • Captain America (Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson)—Nick Spencer

Ruffalo says significant persona changes in store for the Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok

You want more Hulk? Mark Ruffalo says that we are going to get our wish in Thor: Ragnarok according to CINEMABLEND. Ruffalo explains that the Planet Hulk element of the upcoming movie will allow Hulk to demonstrate some different sides of his persona: “He’s much more of a character than the green rage machine you’ve seen in the Avengers movies. He’s got a swagger. He’s like a god.”

Hints of Hulk’s more intelligent side have been shown to set the stage for this. The final scene of Avengers: Age of Ultron show a much more mindful Hulk disappearing in the Quinjet to remove himself from the possibility of collateral damage is a great example. Ruffalo also shares that Banner and Hulk’s consciousness begins to meld in Thor: Ragnarok.

Every new story on Thor: Ragnarok provides additional reason to get excited for the movie and I can’t wait until November 3rd (see right for countdown).

JadeGiant.com has won a major award!

No, it’s not a fra-gee-lay leg lamp … it’s even better! Feedspot has named JadeGiant.com as one of the top 75 comic blogs and websites for comic fans!

So maybe it isn’t really a major award as I have no idea what this means but it is kind of cool to be recognized. Our smashing site checks in at #56 on the list.

Set images from Thor: Ragnarok starting to surface. Can you say Planet Hulk?!

Entertainment Weekly has released several new images from the set of the Thor: Raganarok movie. Click here for all of the images and more information about the movie. The initial set images have a vivid color palette which fits well with the Grandmaster’s court and Planet Sakaar. While we don’t have any Hulk images (I hope those to be coming soon), we have some great images of Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hela (Cate Blanchett), Loki (Thomas Hiddleston), the Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum), and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson). The most exciting part for me is that this movie continues to shape up as more of a Planet Hulk movie with Thor included than a Thor movie with Hulk (or is that just wishful thinking?). However it turns out, it is apparent that we are going to get a heavy dose of our favorite Jade Giant (see what I did there?) in full cinematic glory with this movie. This is easily my most anticipated movie of 2017.Can you remember when Marvel kept denying that we would see Planet Hulk on the big screen? Bah! Opening night can’t get her soon enough!

Maestro Hulk vs. Old Man Logan … by Mike Deadato!

 

There hasn’t been a whole lot of Hulk in comics to get excited about lately but this caught my attention right away! I am highly anticipating this story, especially considering this will be drawn by all time great Hulk artist, Mike Deadato!

The announcement of this comes out in time to build on the Logan movie that recently released in theaters so I am hoping the writing matches the early positive reviews for the movie.Ed Brisson will write this story and provides some insight on how things will play out in the Comicvine link here.

The story takes place in Old Man Logan #25 and will hit your local comic shop in June. I have already called and reserved my copy of this story with my shop! I highly suggest you do the same – I have high hopes for this!
