Feige Talks About Marvel's 'Hulk' Plans

21 July 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ever since The Avengers, there has been lots of buzz around The Incredible Hulk. Despite having two attempts at solo films- which both under-performed- it would appear that Joss Whedon's use of the character was what finally sparked the imagination of the masses. That, and Mark Ruffalo's strong portrayal of Bruce Banner. Since then, much has been made about what Marvel would like to do with the character's scene-stealing popularity. Our own El Mayimbe once exclusively reported on plans for a film based on the Planet Hulk books, and his claims were more or less verified when concept art for Thor: The Dark World was released that showed that- at one point- Marvel was toying with the idea. The art showed characters that first appeared in those books, like the Oldstrong and Kaifi.

But now, as has been said before, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige is confirming that »

Marvel's Future Plans for Hulk May Involve Another Heroic Team

1 July 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's been a lot of buzz about what Marvel might have in store for The Incredible Hulk following The Avengers: Age of Ultron. It was bodybuilder and TV series star Lou Ferrigno who first started talking about plans for another standalone movie for the green machine, and The Avengers star Mark Ruffalo echoed his sentiments. Then just yesterday, Ruffalo was specifically asked about bringing a certain storyline to the big screen: Planet Hulk. However, the actor didn't seem to think that was the story to go with to continue Hulk's arc. But now it turns out that may not entirely be true, but Ruffalo wasn't necessarily lying. First, let's have a bit of a recap. The rumor of the Planet Hulk storyline becoming part of Marvel's cinematic universe first started in February of 2013, before Iron Man 3 or Thor: The Dark World had even hit theaters. For those who may not be aware, »

Andy Serkis Has an Unknown Role in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Also

30 June 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Along with rumors from Lou Ferrigno that another standalone Hulk movie was coming after The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which has since been backed up by star Mark Ruffalo, we also learned that motion-capture performance master Andy Serkis was working on the film. Serkis had been working closely with Ruffalo regarding some more intensive motion-capture work to help bring the big guy to life in the Marvel sequel, and the actor's company The Imaginarium is performance capture consultant, just like on Star Wars Episode VII. But now we have word that Serkis actually has a role in The Avengers follow-up too. Speaking with Variety, Serkis confirmed, "The Imaginarium is the performance capture consultant, and I’m playing a role (in both films)." He was also asked whether it was a motion-capture role or one where we'll actually see his face, but he didn't give anything away saying, "I’m not at liberty to mention. »

Mark Ruffalo Says Marvel is Considering New ‘Hulk’ Movie

18 June 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

If you ask actor Lou Ferrigno, the original Incredible Hulk, about the future of Marvel’s largest and most ill-tempered Avenger, he’d tell you that the green giant is getting his own movie sometime after next summer’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Given that Marvel Studios has yet to outline all of their Phase 3 plans for 2016-17 it’s certainly possible.

Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige said as much in interviews for The Avengers two years ago, but warned that if there were to be another Hulk movie for star Mark Ruffalo, it wouldn’t be until after The Avengers 2. Skip forward to present and Ruffalo says it’s now actually (read: finally) under “consideration.” Although it probably has been that way for ...

Marvel Still Toying with Idea of Incredible Hulk Standalone Movie

17 June 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One of the aspects of The Avengers most people enjoyed was the inclusion of The Incredible Hulk, played by Mark Ruffalo and voiced by Lou Ferrigno. Standalone films centered on the big green guy haven't exactly done all that well, but as a supporting character he definitely worked. Now, with a familiarity around the character growing and will only continue to grow in next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron, there is talk once again about taking another stab at a solo feature. Previously, Ferrigno said a standalone film might be on the horizon some time after Age of Ultron and now Ruffalo is backing up that claim, or, at least giving it a little more credence in an interview with Digital Spy: "I think they are, for the first time, entertaining the idea of a standalone film. When we did The Avengers it was basically 'No!', and now there is some consideration for it. »

Marvel Is Considering a 'Hulk' Stand-Alone Movie

17 June 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Marvel's The Avengers set the box office on fire back in 2012, fans finally got the Hulk they wanted with Mark Ruffalo's version of Bruce Banner. Though, despite that Phase One ensemble's box office success, there have never been plans for a Hulk stand-alone movie. Last May, Mark Ruffalo said there were no plans for Hulk to get his own spin-off anytime soon, but he was not giving up hope on trying to make that happen.

While promoting his upcoming drama Begin Again, Mark Ruffalo revealed that Marvel is finally warming up to the idea of this iconic Green Goliath getting his own solo movie, although nothing definitive is in the works yet.

"I think they are, for the first time, entertaining the idea of it. When we did The Avengers it was basically 'No!', and now there is some consideration for it. But there's still nothing definitive, »

Mark Ruffalo Says Marvel Considering New Standalone Hulk Movie

17 June 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Back towards the beginning of the summer blockbuster season, word came from "Incredible Hulk" TV series star Lou Ferrigno that Marvel was planning to do a standalone Hulk movie sometime after The Avengers: Age of Ultron. But despite the fact that Ferrigno is involved with doing some voice work to bring the big green guy to life, he's likely not within the circle of trust who knows the future plans of Marvel Studios, even if it's specifically with the character he helps bring to life. However, Mark Ruffalo just recently spoke with Digital Spy, and he also thinks that Marvel is keen on another standalone Hulk movie. When asked whether he would get his own movie as The Hulk, Ruffalo said: "I think they are, for the first time, entertaining the idea of it. When we did 'The Avengers' it was basically 'No!', and now there is some consideration for it. »

Mark Ruffalo Says There Might Be a Standalone 'Hulk' Movie

17 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Is Hulk set to smash yet again?

Back in December, people scoffed a bit when Lou Ferrigno claimed another "Hulk" standalone movie was in the works. But now, Mark Ruffalo -- who played the green giant in "The Avengers" and reprises that role in "Age of Ultron" -- is backing him up.

"I think they are, for the first time, entertaining the idea of it," Ruffalo told Digital Spy of a standalone film. "When we did 'The Avengers,' it was basically 'No!', and now there is some consideration for it."

Before "The Avengers," two different "Hulk" movies -- 2003 with Eric Bana and 2008 with Ed Norton -- didn't exactly set the world on fire. But the character became much more popular after "The Avengers," and fans have been chattering ever since about rebooting the property with Ruffalo.

So, maybe Marvel is rethinking a "Hulk" movie. But if it does come to pass, »

ABC will burn off the remaining episodes of The Assets on Saturdays starting on June 21. I rather liked ABC’s espionage mini-series when it got pulled, so I’m looking forward to seeing the remaining episodes.

Deadline reports that Ghost Hunters is losing out Taps team member Adam Berry. Berry and fellow paranormal investigator Amy Bruni are leaving to work on their own show.

How will ABC singing competition Rising Star work? The series will conduct eliminations based on how viewers vote on a show app with results being counted during the live broadcast. But how will that work in a country with five time zones? In the Eastern, Central and Mountain time zones, the show will air live. Meanwhile, West Coast viewers will basically get to veto the other three time zones’ rejections. There’s no mention if viewers in Hawaii are included in the West Coast. »

Lou Ferrigno, The Incredible Hulk, Victim Of A Death Hoax

28 May 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Lou Ferrigno was the victim of a death hoax on Wednesday, May 28, when reports suggested that the actor had died in a car accident.

Ferrigno, known for playing The Hulk in the short-lived The Incredible Hulk television show, was rumored to have died in a massive pile-up in Santa Barbara, Calif., after a parody website posted the story.

Lou Ferrigno: "I'm Alive"

The 62-year-old actor and bodybuilder is, in fact, alive and well. He took to Facebook to disprove the rumors, writing, “Thank you all for the concern! I am alive and working."

To prove he is alive, Ferrigno recorded a short video message to his fans.

“Hi everyone, it’s Lou Ferrigno. I’m on my way to the bank; it’s a great Wednesday, beautiful and sunny. I’m not dead. I’m still alive,” Ferrigno said in the video.

Ferrigno also cautioned his fans against believing »

Hulk News Swirling

The Hulk is one of the most popular and enduring comic book characters of all-time, maintaining a constant spotlight presence in Marvel’s stable for over five decades. In that time, the modern Jekyll-and-Hyde story has captured the imaginations and sympathy of generations of comic book fans time and again.

Thanks to 2012′s The Avengers, the Hulk character might be experiencing an all-time high level of popularity, comparable to the heyday of the live-action Incredible Hulk television show from the 70s and 80s. Mark Ruffalo’s well-received turn as Bruce Banner in the blockbuster film, combined with the success of the 2008 film Incredible Hulk and the anticipation for Avengers: Age of Ultron has a different kind of Hulkamania at a fevered pitch. Luckily for fans of the big green guy, there are all kinds of stories making the rounds concerning Marvel’s mauler.

The U.S. Air Force Has a Hilarious Plan for a Real Godzilla Attack (Video)

9 May 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In preparation for the release of the "Godzilla" reboot this summer, the Smithsonian's Air & Space magazine wondered: How would the U.S. military respond to a real-life attack by the lizard monster?

It turns out that at least a couple members of the U.S. Air Force have thought about just such a scenario, though how serious they are about the execution of their defense plans is up for debate. Air & Space asked Senior Airman Mark Hermann and Master Sgt. Jason Edwards, stationed at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan, for their thoughts on a hypothetical Godzilla invasion, and both had some pretty inspired responses.

Hermann took the bit slightly more seriously than Edwards, speculating that the base would need all its F-15 planes and at least 600 rounds of ammunition per person to take down the beast. Godzilla's atomic breath would be a concern for troops, Hermann said, but if »

While it may seem as though every supporting player in the Marvel universe has been up for a solo project at one time or another, the most persistent rumours of recent years have surrounded whether or not we will see another Hulk movie any time soon. That rumour is back up and running this morning, with original Hulk star Lou Ferrigno claiming that Marvel has pencilled in another standalone movie to arrive after Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

Lou Ferrigno Says New Hulk Movie Coming After Avengers: Age of Ultron

3 May 2014 12:16 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

We've been hearing about a new Hulk movie ever since "The Avengers." Unfortunately, Marvel has yet to confirm any plans to develop a solo Hulk movie. In fact, the studio has been hinting the exact opposite, that the character will continue playing a supporting role in "The Avengers" installments. But now that "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is shooting and Lou Ferrigno is returning to voice the Hulk, the actor revealed on a radio show that a solo Hulk movie is going to happen sooner than expected. "Now because he saved the day [in 'The Avengers,'] they're making another solo Hulk movie after the second 'Avengers' comes out." It's not clear how credible Ferrigno is, especially when Marvel heads have explained the difficulty of making a Hulk movie. The studio is having trouble of approaching the character in a new way, but believe that making a werewolf-type story would be the way to go. »

Is Marvel Planning a 'Hulk' Standalone Movie for Phase Three?

2 May 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Having portrayed the original Incredible Hulk on TV in the 70s, you might consider actor and bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno somewhat of an expert on the Green Goliath. He's never been too far removed from the character he is most identified with, having voiced Hulk's guttural rage in all of the big screen movies, which includes the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. But we're not sure if he's just repeating Internet rumors or if he actually has inside information when he claims that a new standalone Hulk movie is being planned for Marvel Phase Three, after Avengers: Age of Ultron makes its debut in the summer of 2015.

Lou Ferrigno has made these claims before, as recent as December of last year. Now, in an interview with a local Minnesota radio station, he claims that a third Hulk movie starring Mark Ruffalo is immanent.

It.s no secret that Marvel has been trying to figure out how to better use The Incredible Hulk, because while he was a memorable member of Joss Whedon.s The Avengers, the jolly green behemoth hasn.t yet dominated on the big screen in a solo, standalone movie. That could change, if one-time Hulk co-star Lou Ferrigno . who played the Marvel superhero in a long-running television program . is to be believed as a credible source. Lou Ferrigno was a guest on a local radio show in Minnesota (via Latino Review) and let it slip that Marvel plans to do another solo Hulk movie after Whedon wraps The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Another Day, Another 'Hulk' Movie Rumor

2 May 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Take this with a big pinch of salt -- another solo "Hulk" movie may be in the works at Marvel Studios, according to Lou Ferrigno.

Ferrigno, who played the Hulk on television, claimed in a radio interview (via Slashfilm) that a third "Hulk" movie would be next on deck.

"Now because he saved the day [in the first "Avengers" movie], they're making another solo Hulk movie after the second 'Avengers' comes out," he said.

Well, we won't take Ferrigno's word for it, just yet, but it's entire possible that Marvel will get another "Hulk" going after "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Ant-Man." Mark Ruffalo is reprising the role in the "Avengers" sequel. But there's been talk of another "Hulk" movie for the last few years, and Marvel has moved forward with other properties in the meantime.

Hulk smash again? Time will tell.
