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. Banhammer has been activated. This is pretty much the equivalent of spam.

    Vic

    • Thank you so much Vic, I salute you. Let’s hope Gilberto Edwards widens up.

      • I m in the right mind.

  2. Wow yall mad stupid ..mark ruffalo is gunna b the hulk…n b the best one ever!

    • You are very stupid Edward Norton is the best Hulk not Ruffalo.

  3. I really really REAALLLY want an Incredible Hulk Sequel to continue with The Leader. That movie will make SO MUCH $$$ it won’t be funny. then when they do THE AVENGERS SEQUEL it will BE MARVELOUS

    • YESSSS!!! THE LEADER, THE LEADER, THE LEADER. If Marvel decides to make the new Hulk movie, it must include what they have already started, which is the Hulk’s true arch enemy. The Gamma induced mastermind known as the Leader. *fingers crossed*

  4. YES!!!! Bring it on the screen, with mark ruffalo please!

  5. I think the last hulk movie teased us with the coming of the leader, so I think they should keep the guy from the Avengers to play hulk, keep him the way that was super hero like that and bring the movie out sooner the 2013. Honestly nobody wants to be teased for that long, so bring us the hulk three and show that you can actually deliver on a movie fit for the strongest hero in comics.

    PS. Can you also make superman vs hulk. Comic, or otherwise………….

  6. I hope marvel produces another/ I enjoyed the 2nd installment, and thought the Norton Hulk looked way better than Ruffalo’s. Lets hope they produce it – I’ll see it if I’m still kickin then….

    • oh i think if high flying jumps made by the incredible hulk(norton) it will look far more better because the angryness and fear suits on him not mark’s hulk.

  7. please make the third hulk movie sooner and can you please make hulk vs. superman animated or feature fill I would be greatly appreciative if you did

    • They cant make hulk verse superman hulk is marvel universe and superman is DC universe

    • They cant make hulk verse superman hulk is marvel universe and superman is DC universe. There would be major copyrite issues nd i dont think a crossover would be very good

      • Really? LEARN TO SPELL

  8. The problem with the last 2 Hulk movies was that he was like a cut up body builder that grunts and growls.The Hulk in the Avenger’s was more classic he was big and massive like Jack Kirby’s version in the comics and this Hulk was a destroying machine that’s what hulk fans want we want to see him go berserk causing mass destruction and for God sake give him a dialog he can talk you know.I like the Hulk because he is not evil or bad just wants to be left alone,hero or villain step on his toes it’s on.

    • Hit the nail(Hulkstyle)right on the head!!!

  9. One more thing we want to see the Hulk more not Banner the comic is called the Incredible Hulk not the Incredible Banner.

  10. The new hulk movie should have a lot more fight scene’s than the others to make it epic. an show more of the hulk.

  11. Edward Norton no longer interested in superhero roles and comicbook films.

    • the Incredible Hulk 2 will be a sequel to the 2008 and release in 2015. So Edward Norton Hulk movie is part of Hulk 2.

  12. personally id love to see another hulk movie :)

  13. personally id love to see another hulk movie :) it would be awesome

  14. personally id love to see another hulk movie it would be awesome

  15. I would love for u guys to make another HULK movie I grow up with hulk comic book and the tv show now my son is a big fan he is now growing up loving the HULK we both go to the movie as a father amd son day watching all hulk movies u should make another one..

  16. They definitely need a new hulk movie but it needs someone good to play the hulk and a director and writer who know what they’re doin and actually know something about the hulk. hulk is the best after all

  17. The Incredible Hulk was a great movie for me i loved and i watch it a lot in my spare time, so i’m with a lot of you guys i am absolutely dying for a sequel along with the tv show that will be coming out soon. I think that a sequel would be great and i’d love to see the leader in the next one, he’s a very different kind of badguy for the Hulk one thats not like the ones we’ve seen in the previous movies, so he would be an interesting twist. I would also love to see Mark Ruffalo return to portray Bruce Banner again and this time they can use the mo-cap suits in the Hulk movie like they did in the avengers because that worked out so very well and looked fantastic. I hope they get William Hurt back as General Ross because i loved him a lot in that role i thought he was excellent casting, and i’d love to see him become the Red Hulk that i think would be good for another Hulk movie. I also liked Liv Tyler as Betty so i hope she comes back. And Tim Blake Nelson is signed on for more Hulk movies most likely playing the Leader so that will probably be great. If the sequel does come any time i hope that Louis Letterier returns to direct in my opinion he was the best director they couldv’e gotten for that movie and i loved his work with that very much its a pitty that some of his other work isn’t nearly as entertaining (Clash of the Titans) maybe he just needs to work with better writers. But i’m looking forward to the upcoming tv series whenever that comes and i hope the sequel does come in 2015 or any time really but right now thats the most realistic time for the release. think about it like this

    Iron Man 3-2013
    Thor: The Dark World-2013
    Captain America: The WInter Soldier-2014
    Gaurdians of the Galaxy- 2014
    Ant-Man- 2014?
    Incredible Hulk 2- 2015?
    Avngers 2 (soon to be retitled)- 2015

  18. We love the hulk!!! Both films were fab n are watched and watched and watched by all my marvel lover family!!! BRING BACK THE HULk!!!

  19. All my marvel family love the hulk!!!! We watch them over and over agAin!!!
    Be quick in making the 3rd!!!
    HULK ALL THE WAY!!!

  20. Please make this film…….Hulk had aways been a awesome and confusing hero. Good but bad……..but just awesome!

  21. you know its stuped if they dont take the guy from the avengers he played the role of hulk so good the last 2 movies was’t that good expecilly the two guys that played it seemed as they didt really get into the role and the guy from the avengers took it vary personal he he played a great hulk hope they do the movie and put it out sooner than 2015 try 2013 or so then do the avengers 2 or whatever they will call it

  22. Another Hulk Movie with be so Great…then if You have Leader in this Sequel with the New Hulk…then the Hulk and all the Avengers Heroes and Movies will be Legend in many Generation to come…but Whatever Y’all do, don’t do like X-Men and Spider Man and Start over…And You have to make Wolverine, the New Spidey and GhostRider a Avenger and bring back DareDevil, Dang…make Me Proud to be a Marvel Fan…look You all can Argue all You want…just work Your Magic Sam and see if You can pull the Right Strings to make this all Happen…Please let the Fantastic 4 stay Dead…

  23. Please do another hulk movie its a must make title I’m pretty sure the fans would really love to see that

  24. Hulk movies are good and with ‘the avengers’ its making him.better. But at the end of the last hulk with Edward Nortan, it showed the commander in a bar and Tony Stark shows up. So making another hulk should start with that ending. If that ending was made for ‘the avengers’, where was the commander in it?

  25. Hell yea thats that beast he will never bring the movie but bring in juganuatat the end

  26. I really hope that there is a sequel however, I’m worried the Hulk character won’t be as developed as that of the Avengers film.
    If they can get a reliable director who can create a meaningful, emotional and maybe even vulnerable Bruce Banner character, than that will be an amazing film!

  27. Been hoping to hear “something” about next hulk movie. Everyone I know had the same question. Seen every marvel film and still want more. They just don’t come fast enough. Check the fan base and I’m sure majority feels the same

  28. I feel that because the Hulk is one of marvels most powerful characters he should be allowed to show his strength in battle with several of his enemies. Not so much as at the same time but strategically threw out the movie. I think this will keep the audiance from being burdened with long drawnout story lines. You can only take so much of fighting the same enemy in a movie were the hero is mostly one dementional. Hulk is known for smashing so let him smash.

  29. Who will be the villian in hulk 3 or what ever it may be called and will Mark from the avengers will act it
