If last week's tease of Agent Carter wasn't enough to satiate fans, Marvel has more of Peggy Carter on the way before her own show begins.

After the Hulk became one of the highlights of "The Avengers," we started hearing numerous rumors of the character once again getting his own movie and possibly a TV series. Those rumors were later confirmed by Guillermo Del Toro, who revealed that he's working on a new "Hulk" TV show. Since then, Marvel has been silent, except for hints that a Hulk movie is being considered. Now, in a new interview with Lou Ferrigno ("The Incredible Hulk"), the actor revealed that the series is still in the works. "They plan to do a TV series someday and it will probably be CGI, I don't think you.ll ever see a human Hulk again," he explained, adding: "That's a long way from now because I think in another year, they're going to film a solo 'Hulk' movie." »
With the possibility of a new Incredible Hulk movie and TV series on the horizon (if you ask Lou Ferrigno anyway), Bruce Banner himself Mark Ruffalo may find himself being busy over the next year or so. But that hasn’t stopped the actor from dreaming about other roles. In fact, he’s looking to head to a galaxy far, far away – but not with J.J. Abrams for Star Wars: Episode VII and instead with Rian Johnson and Star Wars: Episode VIII.
In an interview with Collider about his upcoming movie Infinitely Polar Bear, Ruffalo said that he has reached out personally to Rian Johnson saying he’s “desperate” for a role in Star Wars: Episode VIII. The actor said, “my e-mail to Rian after all these years was ‘Rian, congratulations on everything you’ve been doing. And by the way, if there’s a part in Star Wars, please, »

Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and now the Guardians of the Galaxy are all international movie stars, but one Marvel staple hasn’t had as much success as his comrades. That would be Bruce Banner/The Hulk, whose two solo outings have been a mixed bag in terms of critical and commercial reception. Ang Lee’s 2003 version grossed just $132.1 million in the States, while Louis Leterrier’s 2008 reboot (part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon) didn’t fare much better at $134.8 million – and it cost about $20 million more.
Those numbers are a far cry from similar genre titles, whether they come from Disney, Fox, Sony, or Warner Bros. ...
