It looks like it is official that Marvel will not be adapting the extremely popular Planet Hulk story to the big screen. There were rampant rumors last month from a credible (as I am told) source that indicated Avengers 2 would end with Hulk being sent into space by a movie version of the Illuminati.
According to the rumor, Avengers 2 was to have been followed up with the next Hulk movie which would be full scale movie version of the Planet Hulk story. Avengers 3 would have subsequently been the World War Hulk story line. Hulk fans everywhere were salivating at this possibility while wondering if it could possibly be true. In a recent IGN article, Joss Whedon confirmed that this rumor is “nonsense” and that we won’t be seeing Planet Hulk on the big screen after all. I know I am late to the party on this news but I have been holding back the hope that there might be a sliver of truth in the rumor. I guess it is time to move on … or is it? Marvel is known to be tight-lipped and deny rumors before – maybe there is some hope after all!
