    A Del Toro Hulk film would be intriguing, but I doubt he'd be able to get around to making it.

    I'd like the story to get back to TBN's Leader (pickle head, please) if possible. The actor needs some blockbuster-type exposure. And don't forget the moustache! (Yeah, I've made two moustache-related comments about comic films tonight. 'Tis coincidental, I swear.)

    Nice to Hulk/Ruffalo get some more movie love. Hopefully (since I believe the first 2 movies are technically in continuity) we'll get to see The Leader be the big bad in this one. Also, when asked about Hulk 3, Marvel is
    Sounds like we'll probably get an A:EMH version of Hulk in this one then.

    I wonder what they'll do. They could follow up on the Leader, but keep in mind that this movie would wind up getting released seven years after the 2008 movie. Would they really spend the time making a sequel to a movie that didn't exactly take off? I mean, yeah, the 2008 movie broke even and everything but it wasn't as big of a hit as Marvel wanted.

    They ARE going to have to acknowledge some time has passed. That much is for sure. Liv Tyler is going to look a lot different in 2015 than she did in 2008 even with Hollywood "magic". She'll be 37 when this theoretical movie premieres. That's assuming they don't recast her.

    I also wouldn't be thrilled if they went with the Red Hulk storyline. :sweat:

    What the heck is Red Hulk?

    I think the movie could be about the Leader making himself an army with those samples he made at the university in the first movie, and escaping from whoever had him in custody (SHIELD or the US Army). They'd have to reel in a slightly bigger supporting cast, imo.

    Depends on who you talk to. I've read both "yes" and "no" if it will be connected to the MCU. But as for the other TV shows, they've leaned towards "yes" so far. Don't see that the big deal is since the Hulk TV show would be focused on the early years of Banner on the run so there's not much continuity to worry about.

    It was one of those big events where a Red version of the Hulk show up and killed Abomination later revealed that the Red Hulk is General Ross.

    That storyline's been going on for four years, you must have quit a while ago. :)

    She-Hulk, anyone? :D

    A while ago is one way to put it. Around 2003-2004.

    The Leader is the way to go. We already had our Hulk versus Army and toe-to-toe brawl with Abomination. He needs to be the super cunning scientist who can dangle freedom in front of Hulk. Someone who can get the cure.

    I would like to see Doc Samson, Rick Jones, and the U Foes. It would be cool to get the cast of Fantastic Four (sans Evans) to play the U Foes.

    U Foes? Nice! Didn't think of those guys. Most of them could put a dent in ol' Hulk in a fight.

    I think this thread is a little premature. Nothing has been announced. There's nothing other than rumors to indicate this would happen either.

    Just to point this out, a comic tie-in to Avengers revealed that the Leader was taken into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody after the movie.

    Anyone against renaming this to something more general like "Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) News and Speculation Discussion"?

    Cool, thanks. The Nick Fury one right?

    I didn't create this thread. I originally posted it in the Avengers thread, reason being it was mentioned in an older interview with Ruffalo about reprising Hulk in the future, and he said something like it has been discussed. This and Whedon and Feige both said they were waiting on fan reaction to Hulk in Avengers to decide something. News if him signing a multipic deal is pretty telling to me, it isn't concrete by any means, but it does open discussion for another solo film.

    I would agree with this. Makes so much more sense.

    Thread retitled. Any official movie announcements will result in the appropriate spin-off thread.

    Thanks, James.

    Now, I'd think it'd be cool to populate the first post with news links for all the movies and shows related to the MCU and links to ongoing threads. That'll take some time though...If anyone wants to pitch in, send me a PM. Could get a bit messy if everyone posts just links on this thread.

    Is this thread for the "Paramount/Disney" movies only? Or for the entire "Marvel Universe" line of films?

    If Sony refuses to give Spider-Man and the X-Men franchises back to Marvel, then maybe Sony should consider doing their own team-up movie! How about a "Spider-Man/X-Men" movie? That would be...unique.

    And what studio has the rights to the Fantastic Four now? And Blade?
