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].”

Old School Hulk Face in The Avengers Third Hulk Movie Coming 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 believe you”re wrong about Ed Norton not wanting the do a sequel or being gone.

    • And nobody believes anything that you say. You can keep saying “Ed Norton! Ed Norton! Ed Norton!”, but it doesn’t change the truth. I think somehow, someone has used the Tesseract in this thread to access another dimension, and you are on the other side…Bizarro (oops that’s DC).

      • Shut up nanny, you don’t be reading about the truth of a article because Edward Norton is in a possible sequel. From were I read in The Incredible Hulk possible sequel that he sign on to reprise the role.

        • Ed Norton will never return again. NEVER EVER WILL

          • Yes he will return if they give him another shot like universal or Valhalla motion pictures will bring Norton back.

        • Glibert, Look. Either, you are Ed Norton sitting behind a computer, hoping people still like you even though your not that good. Or, you a creepy weirdo who is in love with Ed Norton. And, good luck to you in trying to nail that. Fact is he will never be the hulk again, and thank god cause he wasn’t that good. Don’t believe it? I hope this is proof enough for you to stop with your incessant rambling, that is factually inaccurate and grammatically wrong.

          Those are quotes taken from Ed Norton on his view of playing super hero roles.

          • They are doing a Hulk TV show in 2014 it’s going to happen and Mark Ruffalo is not playing the Hulk or Banner in the Hulk TV series means it’s going to win against the Untiled Hulk movie. Lou Ferrigno said he will be involved in both projects.

          • They are doing a Hulk TV show in 2014 it’s going to happen and Mark Ruffalo is not going to be in the Hulk TV series means it’s going to win against the Untiled Hulk movie. Lou Ferrigno said he will be involved in both projects.

            • He doesn’t care! You lied to us saying it would come out in 2013, but now you say 2014. Next thing you’re going to say is in 2015. No one wants to hear from you again you pathetic, incessant rambling black hulk.

              • Wow Sam. I went away to California and came back only to see that this moronic monkey is still talking about Ed Norton. LOL. I see the dates have now changed on Gilberto’s Bizarro World premiere of Ed Norton’s Hulk movie.

    • edward norton was great as all where. But im the man for voice overs and actions.as the eye in the sky said so.raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar.xxx

  2. Dude I don’t know where you all are getting your information as far as I know the Hulk is done

    • I saw it on MTV news online in 2008 shortly after the 2 Hulk film finish.

      • 2008 huh? MTV huh? Wow.
        Ok Gilberto … can I ask you a question? What year is it?

        Once you figure out what year it is, tell me, how many fingers am I holding up? I’ll give you a hint on the second question. I’m not holding up my index, ring, or pinky fingers.

        • It’s 2013 and there is a hold up from marvel for the New Hulk TV series I m dying to see in 2013 or 2014. But Guillermo Del Toro said The Hulk TV show is in development.

    • I saw it on MTV news online in 2008 shortly after the 2 Hulk film.

    • Why do you guys keep feeding this troll? If Norton was gonna be in, he woulda been in Avengers. Instead Marvel and everyone else who watched Avengers, LOVED Ruffalo in the role. It’s Ruffalos part now. Bury this trash and stop responding to this guy.

  3. The avengers was a stunning movie especially Hulk’s part and how use done it..was awesome.. But the thing that stucks with me is that Hulk isn’t the Hulk anymore..firstly why doesn’t he absorb bullets anymore like in part 1.. And why isn’t he the gaint Hulk we use to know what he is..its like you guys makes him smaller and smaller.. .. And he isn’t that strong like he use to be.. But he still brings that smashing spark of what Hulk is.. .. I’m sure this is interesting..

  4. I really enjoyed Raffalo as the hulk. I grew up watching the TV series as a kid and enjoyed all the Hulk movies. Norton is a great actor but I would choose to watch Raffalo as Hulk as he fits the part better as Banner and the Hulk.

  5. Mark Ruffalo didn’t pass the screen test be ause he doesn’t look like the character from the comic book and the TV series like Bill Bixby. They need to replace him now from the Avengers 2 get someone that can play Bruce Banner in the Avengers. That’s not Bruce Banner from the TV show or the comics.

    • No, you’re wrong. Norton was too stubborn to film a sequel, SO they replaced him. Which country are you from? gilberto edwards!

      • Your wrong it’s because the Marvel Studio didn’t listen to him about the Incredible Hulk how they suppose to use him in every seen. They was self fish not Norton it wasn’t his problem.

        • I request proof, otherwise you are wrong. Give me a good link. A Good One! I mean it. I’m going to end this utter balderdash conversation and I will make sure it doesn’t continue.

          • Iook it up at Edward Norton 2010 in google.

          • Iook it up at Edward Norton 2010 in google website.

            • That is NOT proof. That’s old news. This is 2013. I had requested a link. You didn’t give one so what you are saying is SO stupid. The Incredible Hulk is part of the whole Marvel saga. Do you understand? At the end of The Incredible Hulk, Tony Stark was in the cut scene in the end credits. Edward Norton will not return ever again. Even if Mark Ruffalo has a 6 picture deal, that could mean more Hulk films. Don’t bother replying to me, you are pathetic. Let’s see if you’re pathetic.

              • Yes it is sam look it up and be quiet. Don’t be a ass hole. So shut up.

              • Edward Norton will return if they want him too.

              • Edward Norton will return if they want him too because it up to the director.

  6. I wish they would make movie where juggernaut and hulk fight cause there enemies in comic books

  7. I’d like to see a new hulk movie, and just use the same guy from avengers. I feel it takes away from the movie’s main character (the hulk). Just my thoughts.

  8. I’d like to see a Hulk movie involving the story in Hulk #181-182 with Wolverine and Wendigo.

  9. Hell YES ! I want to see HULK ! 2003 HULK was ok.
    2008 HULK was very good ! I want to see HULK
    Done RIGHT ! More battles with Ross , The Leader,
    Rhino . Written with good writers . Maybe even bring
    Rick Jones, Major Talbot. A mixture with the comic
    and the series .

  10. Well, I love the Hulk, and to be honest I think all three of the actors that have played him gave it a good shot, but no matter how much i love this character, i don’t think he can pull it off on his own, he needs the rest of the Avenger team to support his character, which i do hope they do in the following Marvel Avenger films, I know there have been a lot of marvel superhero’s that have been in the comic book avengers, but i seriously hope they do keep the original cast team from the Avenger movie. As far as who’ll play him, well; like i said there’s been three already, but my fav: to be really honest is the unofficial one from the 2003, actor Eric Banadinovich,funnily enough shorten his real name and who do you get!!!???? I’d say this gives him the right to play him.

  11. i just love hulk i i dont care whether eric bana or edward norton lands as bruce banner i just care about the movie

  12. i just love hulk i dont care whether eric bana or edward norton lands as bruce banner i just care about the movie

  13. Marvel said they wouldn’t cast mark ruffalo because marvel felt the same like I would about Ruffalo .Ruffalo is not right for the Incredible Hulk 2 instead it’s a different movie so that were they need to change for Mark Ruffalo for Edward Norton because Norton did the Hulk movie first.

  14. What’s wrong Gilberto? The “Submit Comment” button doesn’t work in your part of the world? Why do you have to post the same comment 7 times? Is your mouse not working? Are there rolling black outs on Bizzaro world?

  15. I think another Hulk movie would be awesome. After the last two they should have the kinks worked out by the next film. I think it will be epic.

  16. Marvel will cast Mark Ruffalo for any stand-alone Hulk movies.

    • Marvel won’t cast Mark Ruffalo said Marvel because mark Ruffalo doesn’t fit the character said marvel.

    • Because they will be doing a Hulk TV series coming this year or next year in 2014. They will bring another actor to play Bruce Banner in his mid 20″s said Guillermo Del Toro and Jeph Leob. No Mark Ruffalo will be cast for a Hulk TV series coming 2014.

  17. I’m a huge fan of all marvel and dc comics movies. And i hope they do make another hulk movie id like to see where the story goes next. These movies are brought to life out of the comic books most of us use to flip threw, Let them keep making them stop complaining. If you don’t want to see it than don’t go to the movies to watch it or buy it on DVD.

  18. Are you stupid or something. Did you know the Rock is more powerful than Lou. I AM NOT THE ONE LYING HERE.

    Read this article: http://imnotobsessed.com/2010/07/12/edward-norton-fired-from-incredible-hulk-sequel/

    Your meaning was from 2009. This article is 2010. The year is 2013 right now. Get it in your pocket hulk brain. Edward Norton is a jerk. Why don’t you try making a child with him?

    I wish Jamie Foxxx would give the same treatment to Gilberto Edwards, the same treatment where he took care of Stephen.

    Where am I now Dumberto fed-words? Which country am I in now? Come on, answer up, big boy! Come on big boy! Come big boy!

  19. I still say the ang Lee produced hulk film is the better film..and should have had the second one start where that one left off..cause it was ended open….I think the comic book adaptation to the film was unique and done exceptionally well….and they should have never rebooted the hulk and change every character in the original first film…I thought Eric bana was perfect in his roll as Bruce banner/hulk…..

    • Jim Lou Ferrigno mention that he wanting to do the First Hulk movie and they didn’t let him play the Hulk in the CGI. So he said it didn’t look like the real Hulk in 2003 but second Hulk movie was better with Edward Norton than the First one with Eric Bana.

    • Jim Lou Ferrigno mention that he wanting to play the Hulk in the first Hulk movie and they didn’t let him play the Hulk in the CGI. So he said it didn’t look like the real Hulk in 2003 but second Hulk movie was far better with Edward Norton than the First one with Eric Bana.

    • Jim Lou Ferrigno mention that he wanting to play the Hulk in the first Hulk movie and they didn’t let him play the Hulk in the CGI. So he said it didn’t look like the real Hulk in 2003 but second Hulk movie was far better with Edwa Norton than the First one with Eric Bana.

    • Jim Lou Ferrigno mention that he wanting to play the Hulk in the first Hulk movie and they didn’t let him play the Hulk in the CGI. So he said it didn’t look like the real Hulk in 2003 but seco Hulk movie was far better with Edward Norton than the First one with Eric Bana.

    • Edward Norton Hulk is way better than Eric Bana Hulk.

  20. I’d LOVE to see marvel make a true sequel the incredible hulk even if it’s not till “Phase 3″ of the marvel universe. BUT I would like to see them make 3 of them and have the last one released with the 3rd Avengers.

  21. like and can’t wait

  22. YES PLEASE DO . THE HULK IS THE BEST AND THE ALTEMAT AVENGER HE CANT BE BEATIN .COUSE THE MADER HE GETS THE STRONGER /BIGGER AND HIS DEFIENCE GOES OFF THE CHAIN BUT IN MY OPINION THE HULK IN THE SECOND HULK WAS THE BETTER LOOKING ONE AS FOR AS LOOKS AND TRUITY GOES

  23. Hulk 2/3 depends what you want to call it. definly wont be in 2015 as marvel is releasing Avangers 2 in 2015

  24. HULK 3 or the next HULK will be Just super Awesome!!!!!!!!!

  25. ED NORTON IS DEAD! GILBETO!

    • Edward Norton is still alive he not dead

  26. for the love of god… will somebody some day make a hulk movie with a body builder being the hulk. like the show so much real looking cause it is real then using computer image. big lou was the best hulk i have ever seen he knew how to make faces turn his head just right a computer cant do that. please huge hulk fan

  27. I only want to see a new hulk movie if Edward Norton is in it. To mehe played the best hulk. Even my children enjoyed his movie.

  28. Edward norton parted ways with marvel over a dispute with the script. It was stated by edward nortons reps that hed had co written the final draft and did not get the writing credit or the money that went with it. Marvel studios reps confirmed that edward norton provided some imput into his character however the script was finished prior to shooting to which edward norton started bad mouthing marvel studios and marvel studios responded by recasting the role. Now to be fair edward norton didnt do a bad job but mark ruffalo brought more to the character and was the only true character developed in the avengers. And last i read marvel was pleased with the results. My money is on ruffallo as hulk considering his six picture deal was signed after the avengers which makes the statement that marvel says he does not fit role invalid and even if marvel did say it if the studio always got what they wanted robert downy jr wouldnt have been cast as ironman

    • Edward Norton didn’t like what Marvel studio did in the final cut on the script marvel did nt want to cast Norton for the Avengers so instead they recast another actor that’s sh*tty that is mark ruffalo a non good Banner because he doesn’t look like the character at all and not connected too. That’s why they will do a Hulk TV series sometime this year or next year and he will be recast for a fourth actor that’s in his mid 20s.

  29. I want the Leader to be in the Incredible Hulk 2 movie 2015 and I want the Incredible Hulk 2 action figure toys for the movie.
