With the international box office numbers skyrocketing for “The Avengers” and talk of a box office breaking weekend, it's good to hear that another new Marvel movie could be coming our way.
Critics who have already seen The Avengers are praising The Hulk, one of the film's many highlights and with what will apparently be huge box office numbers for Marvel, talk of a Hulk movie for 2015 could be in the works.
Feige said this about The Hulk getting another shot in the movies:
“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. … But we’ll be very careful about it and deliberate — as we were in how we wanted to bring him back in “Avengers.””
But then Marvel's Paul Glitter, President of Consumer Products said this:
“His sales are up in a major way. We repositioned him from where he was always misunderstood to now depicting him in a more heroic and aspirational manner.”
He then went on to say that the company would be spinning him off in a stand-alone program with his own movie in 2015. Whether it was a misunderstanding or a slip of the tongue, we'll have to wait and see.
