It would be amazing if Marvel decided to move forward on a film based on Planet Hulk! They did an animated movie that turned out really badass, and live-action would take it to a whole new level of awesomeness! I have no doubt that Marvel would be able to pull a movie like this off, the big question is... will they? In an interview with MTV Marvel president Kevin Feige was asked about the possibility of a live action Planet Hulk film, and here was his reply,
I don't think there's a lot that we couldn't do someday, as the cinematic universe continues to grow and expand and get as big as the comic book universe. Planet Hulk is a cool story, World War Hulk is a cool story.
We know they're cool! That's why we want to see them turned into live-action movies! Feige goes on to explain a few obstacles in making the movie saying,
I think there's pitfalls of continuity-overload, and mythology getting so dense that it almost collapses in on itself. It happens every few decades or so in the comics. Apart from that, I'd say everything is on the table.
Well, I think there's a way of doing it without having it collapse on itself. If they can throw the Guardians of the Galaxy into their Marvel movie universe then Planet Hulk shouldn't be an issue. Even if the movie was going to happen don't expect to see it anytime soon, hell, he says we won't even see another Hulk movie until after the Avengers 2.
Do I think Hulk can carry a movie and be as entertaining as he was in Avengers? I do believe that. I do believe he absolutely could. We certainly are not even going to attempt that until Avengers 2. So there's a lot of time to think about it.
He went on to explain why the Hulk connected with fans in The Avengers,
Part of what's fun about the way we played him in Avengers is the ensemble quality of it. I think the pathos and humor, most importantly, that Mark and Joss brought to it showcased a different element of Hulk that's there in the comics, and was always inherent in his character. But when he was so brooding in his other two films, he didn't get to have that wry sense of humor that Mark did such an amazing job performing.
I can't wait to see another Hulk movie! I'm sure we'll see him again in some of the other marvel movies leading up to The Avengers 2, but a Planet Hulk movie would be epic. Would you like to see a Planet Hulk film? Are there any other Hulk stories you'd like to see brought to life?
