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!

New Hulk life size bust from Sideshow!

Check out these images for a preview of the newest Hulk sculpt in the works from Sideshow Toys. You can also see it in the video at the 1:09 mark. From what I can see this looks like an improvement from the previous busts released by Sideshow. Prices on SS items have jumped the shark in my opinion so I won’t likely be picking this up but I will stay tuned for the release information.

The Fallen #1 Variant Hulk cover by Chris Stevens

I love Chris Stevens art and seem to pick up a new piece every other year or so. The latest is below and blew me away. Chris does a lot of variant cover art so when he did this Hulk he had to call the biggest Hulk fan he knew. Thrilled to have this. Enjoy!

Return of the Hulk in comics!?!? … with a twist

The Hulk is back! Or is he? Apparently the Hand has acquired and resurrected the corpse of the “The Fallen” hero and now have control of the Hulk with a plan to use him to spread their dark influence. The story is playing out so far in The Uncanny Avengers issues 15 (Oct 12) and 16 (Nov 9) and looks to be the return of the Hulk. I can’t say I am surprised as I predicted 6 months tops that Hulk would be gone. I am anxious to see how the story unfolds and where the direction of the Hulk goes while under the control of the Hand. I think it could work if written well (a la evil Hulk as Maestro in Future Imperfect) so I am anxious to see where it goes! Below are images from the issues.
