Third ‘Hulk’ Movie Coming in 2015?

New Hulk Movie in 2015 Third Hulk Movie Coming in 2015?

One of the most surprising developments in The Avengers, based on early reviews and reactions, is that the Incredible Hulk is finally awesome on the big screen. In fact, it has been said on more than one occasion that the Hulk steals the entire show.

Perhaps as a result of that success, Marvel’s President of Consumer Products, Paul Glitter, recently talked about Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming television adaptation of The Hulk and spinning it off as a major motion picture in 2015. Scroll down for details.

According to Paul Glitter, courtesy of Forbes:

“[After spinning 'Hulk'] off to a stand-alone [television] program next year, [Marvel will support said program with a big-budget feature film in 2015].”

Gotta love that hideous, old-school Hulk face

Aside from the character being well-received in The Avengers, why has Marvel decided to move forward with a third Hulk film when the last two were tepid successes at best – and when Kevin Feige recently claimed they had no plans to do so?

Says Glitter:

“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.”

Buh? His sales are up in a “major” way? What sales are those exactly? If he’s referring to the comic books, The Incredible Hulk and The Hulk placed 37th and 87th, respectively, in March direct market sales. Now, direct sales are admittedly not the be-all, end-all in terms of comic book $$$, but they are indicative of demand for a title.

Sure, it’s fair to say that both those books are up from where they were last year (marginally, in The Hulk‘s case), but if you compare them to where they were two years ago, they’re down. Three years ago? Way down. Four years ago? Way, way, way down.

Perhaps the most telling statement from Glitter was one to do with branding:

“There are many opportunities for brands to align with the big commercial in the sky [Gitter’s term for blockbuster movies], but we want to develop sustainable relationships [with our promotional partners].”

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with making as much money as possible on these films, but I think it’s fair to say that we’re lucky Marvel chose Joss Whedon to bring The Avengers to the big screen – that is, someone who cares as much about the characters he’s developing as he does the money he’s receiving. Hopefully, the next Hulk film will be just as fortunate.

Do you want to see a third Hulk film, Screen Ranters? Are some of you still hoping to see The Leader? Let us know in the comments.

The Hulk 3, Incredible Hulk 2 (or whatever it’ll be called) may hit theaters in 2015, if all goes well.

  1. I really think if they do bring back the hulk they should do it in a dark way. It needs to have a darkness that is captivating. I love the hulk and from what I know it has a way of being dark. They need to depict that more on the screen. It would be nice to see him as a monster gaining control throughout the film and then he becomes the real hero after his moment of realization. The realization that he is good and can be good. Idk just thinking it could be good villain at the origin hero in the end.

    • he should fight and not only beat doomsday but stop him for good

      • Keep DC out of this

        • This isn’t DC this MARVEL we’re talking about. What made you think this is DC.

  2. Yes, i want hulk phase in which hits the cinemas andwe want this become best movie ever made by marvel films, i hope it will become a block buster

  3. The next hulk needs to be a true hero movie and lose the sopy love story. hes a worldly drifter, a doctor and just had a taste of being a hero and using the hulk instead of running from it in the avengers leaving a large and open base to select a good plot and villain

  4. I most definately want to see a 3rd Hulk film.

  5. Avengers 2015 isn’t Hulk 3; the avenger 2011 is Hulk 3; that’s because the 1st Hulk was made in 2004 and the 2nd was made 2008. There Avengers 2 isn’t Hulk 3.

  6. i feel that HULK deserves a movie because all Avengers superheroes have their own sequels and hulk hasn’t released anything in the last few years and it would be amazing to see HULK saving the world again

  7. I really think there SHOULD be a 3rd Hulk!! Ive been waiting on it since the last one came out. I also think bringing it out after the Avengers is Epic!!!
