Someone deserves some more screen time
|"HULK WANT OWN MOVIE!"|
He's been through three different actors now, since Eric Bana played him in 2003. The films have been passable, and the character has gone through some changes. Studios tried changing up his origin story. They tried making him look more attractive. They tried casting incredible talent to play him. He's been there and back again. Now the story of one of Marvel's greatest characters is being told the way it was meant to. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the big, green, ugly, unstoppable, Incredible Hulk.
As I just said, the Hulk has gone through some twists and turns. Every movie has had it's ups and downs. They had strengths in the acting department, but the effects and stories just weren't up to par with Marvel's other new works. The Incredible Hulk was the only of the movies included in the continuity of the Avengers, despite the change in actor.
Speaking of said actor, now we can finally talk about how Mark Ruffalo did in The Avengers. Plain and simple: he was incredible. Mark Ruffalo brought a real character to the big screen, with emotion and depth. Banner himself now seems to have some control over the Hulk, which opens up many doors for us to see Hulk really be a hero.

Now that Hulk has some control over his powers, we can see him go head to head with Leader, or maybe some other Marvel villains (or heroes). He has hard his fair share of runs on film, and none of them have gone great. It makes sense that Marvel would be timid in delving into the character yet again. This seems right, but now Hulk fans can rejoice at some wonderful news.
|Caution: ugly versions don't |
work with every hero...
Recently Kevin Fiege, head of Marvel Studios, mentioned the possibility of a solo Hulk film in 2015. If they can somehow recreate the magic that Joss Whedon used when making The Avengers, Marvel will have a great movie on their hands. If GTD's series happens, and goes well, we could be seeing a lot more Hulk, and thoroughly enjoying him as well. Props to Mark Ruffalo, Joss Whedon, GTD, and Marvel Studios for finally bringing us an incredible version of the Incredible Hulk.
