Marvel’s The Avengers broke all kinds of box office records when it released in 2012, becoming the third highest-grossing film of all time behind James Cameron’s Titanic and Avatar, but it also managed to reintroduce one of comics’ most iconic superheroes.
After two films – Hulk and The Incredible Hulk – with two different stars – Eric Bana and Edward Norton – Bruce Banner at last returned to the big screen to thunderous applause as the Hulk, this time played by Mark Ruffalo.
The success of the big green one in The Avengers has essentially returned the character into the limelight, and many have been wondering since then if another Hulk film could now be in the cards.
Well, fans may be in luck. According to Latino Review, Lou Ferrigno (the former The Incredible Hulk TV star and current voice actor for the Hulk in the films) recently told a local radio station in Minnesota that Marvel is indeed planning another solo Hulk film, saying:
“Now because he saved the day they’re making another solo ‘Hulk’ movie after the second ‘Avengers’ comes out.”
Exciting stuff then, although it should probably be noted that Ferrigno has made similar claims in the past, only for Kevin Feige to insist that nothing has been set in stone as yet.
