New Avengers: Infinity War trailer is up and full of great images … except the Hulk!

The new Infinity War trailer dropped today and it is chock full of awesomeness with one notable exception – no Hulk shown! Banner or Hulk in the Hulkbuster suit seems to be a growing likelihood and if so, we will probably soon see an incredible Hulk busting out of the Hulkbuster scene. Thanos appears to be handling Cap, Iron Man, and Thor and other heroes rather easily which paints a grim picture for half of the earth’s population. Check out the video and pictures (click to enlarge) below. This is good stuff!

Hulk and Black Widow to reunite in Avengers: Infinity War, Banner to meet Thanos?

We have know for a while that Avengers: Infinity War will be part of a focused Hulk story arc spanning 3 movies and we are starting to see small pieces of how the story might unfold in Infinity War. According to a recent CBR article, Banner and Natasha will continue to develop their ongoing relationship. Is it just Natasha helping Banner revert from a Hulk out? Will the Banner/Natasha relationship become something more?

Another article from screenrant hints at a possible meeting between Banner and/or Hulk that leaves a strong impression on our favorite Jade Giant. The story is more speculation than anything but posits that the scene at the end of Ragnarok with the Guardians of the Galaxy might have been the group encountering the mad titan himself.

Mark Ruffalo: The Hulk is also mightily impressed by Thanos.

 These articles leave more questions than answers but it does seem to confirm that the Hulk will have a nice story within the movie. I suspect that MCU won’t give too much away so we will have to wait and see what unfolds in the movie. The images below (click to enlarge) and articles are worth a quick look and don’t really spoil anything.

Armored up Hulk in Avengers: Infinity War? Hulkbuster Banner?!?!

Sounds crazy, right? My thought as well but an article by Cinemablend and sneaked figure packaging at Reddit has me wondering if there is a possibility that Bruce might be donning the Hulkbuster armor as part of the Infinity War story. Tony Stark has developed new armor for the movie (per the new Entertainment Weekly magazine cover) so maybe he doesn’t need the bulky suit. Maybe Bruce doesn’t want to Hulk out in fear that he will lose control to the Hulk for two years or more like he did in Ragnarok. Maybe the images from the trailer show Bruce tinkering with the armor. There is enough to make you go hmmm, but nothing more. For all we know the figure packaging could be mocked up and fake. With the Hulk’s part of the story in Infinity War kept pretty quiet so far, it does make for some interesting consideration. See pics below (click to enlarge) and for your own opinion. What do you think?

As the Avengers: Infinity War movie release date gets close, more news is coming out. First up: Marvel just announced that the release date will be moved up one week to premier on April 27th which means that we will get to see the premier at the same time as other countries (I still don’t understand why the States have to wait). Next; Entertainment Weekly has announced 15 covers for the movie, including a really nice cover featuring the Hulk.

The new Hulk comic series will be horrific … but that’s a good thing! Read more to learn about The Immortal Hulk

The Hulk is finally getting a comic series relaunch and this time he is no longer incredible, now he is immortal … at least he isn’t red or sporting a beard or faux-hawk. At long last, the one and only Hulk/Bruce Banner will make a return to Marvel comics! The setup for his return is currently playing out in the Avengers: No Surrender story arc which will lead up to a new ongoing series titled The Immortal Hulk starting this June! Why does the series use the immortal descriptor? Well, apparently, Bruce Banner will walk the earth during the day, while the Hulk will come out after nightfall. But here’s the catch: Bruce can be killed during the day but the Hulk will always come to life at night, hence the immortal tag and horror theme. If you are familiar with the Hulk’s history, you will recognize the homage to the character’s early day/night activity as depicted in the original 6 issue comic series so this plays well as an homage to the Hulk’s origin. The horror theme is also a great nod to the inspiration that Stan Lee drew from the Frankenstein and Jekyll/Hyde horror stories when creating the Hulk. See below for a teaser description of the series:

When night falls across the Marvel Universe its heroes must be extra vigilant because that’s when the monsters come out; both the human and supernatural kind. This summer though a new monster with incredible strength will lay claim to the night. During the day this savage creature will be chained inside the psyche and fragile physical form of a human, but when the sun goes down the savage and undying brute will run free.

Al Ewing (writer) and artist Joe Bennett’s new ongoing series Immortal Hulk will carry a horror themed approach with the Hulk being more of a monster at night. The Hulk as a monster? Yeah – that works for me! Below are a few excerpts from a CBR interview with Al and Joe which I highly recommend reading if you want some great insight about the story and the art for the series.

Al Ewing: Okay – to begin with, the title character is Bruce Banner, and Bruce Banner is the Immortal Hulk, the World’s Mightiest Mortal, the Green Goliath, the Strongest One There Is, et cetera, et cetera. A lot of people have been a little wary that we’re actually bringing him back for keeps this time, so I figure this is as good a place as any to confirm that yes, this is Banner, he’s back, he’s got an ongoing solo series and he’s not going to die again any time soon. In fact, that’s kind of the point.

Joe Bennett: Tom Brevoort asked me if I’d be interested in a new Hulk series featuring unique visuals and atmosphere. Al’s scripts really evoke those elements, too, so I decided I should approach the book with a style reminiscent of Bernie Wrightson. The Green Goliath will have a darker and more nocturnal look in this book. I’m trying to evoke the feel of all those great Warren magazines like Eerie, and Creepy

Al Ewing: Banner can die. The Hulk can’t. If you shoot Banner in the head – he’ll fall over dead. He’ll lie there all day, dead as dirt, growing cold, getting stiff… right up until the sun goes down. And then… well, night is the Hulk’s time. And the Hulk remembers.

A couple additional teases of note are the introduction of a female reporter named Jackie McGee which is an obvious homage to the TV series character and the inclusion of Walter Langkowski, aka the Sasquatch within the story. The cover art by Alex Ross looks fantastic and is a great homage to the Hulk 105 issue (wow, lots of homage going on here). I have been cautiously optimistic about this series but this story now has me hooked and expecting great things! The anticipation to see what Marvel has in store for our favorite Jade Giant is sky high! See below for some sneaked artwork for the series – click to enlarge. Enjoy!

BONUS – are we going to see the end of Cho as the Hulk?
