Sorry Marvel fans! You're favorite
jolly angry green giant won't be roid ragin' in his own movie anytime soon.
Despite audiences' favorable reaction to the Hulk in Marvel's upcoming release, The Avengers, the studio is not giving him any more love.
Other than appearing in The Avengers 2, the Hulk will NOT be getting another solo outing in the multiplex.
"Well, no. This was the other shot. Right? I mean, this was the third appearance of Hulk and everything that we had and were going for, we put in to Hulk's appearance in "Avengers." So, I love that people are saying that and are feeling that way about Hulk, but mission accomplished at this point. And the way we go forward, we'll see. But it was a long road to get to this point. Although, I will say, after the screening, I heard various arguments over who was their favorite. Which is my favorite thing: Arguing what was the favorite moment or character. And the fact that so many of them are saying Hulk feels very, very good. Where we go next, we'll see. But we'll be very careful about it and deliberate — as we were in how we wanted to bring him back in "Avengers." "
But WAIT! What was that "we'll see" comment?
If we learned anything from our childhood, it's that an adult saying, "We'll see," is really just a gently way of saying, "No way."
We would be willing to bet that Hollywood will give The Incredible Hulk another chance to bring in the bucks at the box office in the future, but it sounds like audiences will be waiting a long time for that to happen.
