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. When they do decide to make another I hope they stick with Mark Ruffalo as the character and use Joss Whedon as director.

  2. Everyone please ignore Gilberto Edwards comments. He’s spamming everyone, don’t listen to this scammer.

  3. Don’t listen to sam Mark Ruffalo is not in sheild TV series but the Hulk might show up in shield TV series because its in a 30 second clip.It’s not Ruffalo Hulk for sure it’s probably the New Hulk TV series.They showed a small clip of the Hulk smashing cars.

    • Stop picking on Gilberto Edwards! After reading all his posts he is obviously mentally retarded.

      • LOL! That was funny Ron. I see that Gilzarro is still in love with Ed Norton. I give him an A+ for persistence. Did he prove me wrong yet about Ed Norton getting the next Bruce Banner job? Or was it Lou Ferrigno he said would play the Hulk? Or is it Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson playing Bruce and Woody Allen playing the Hulk. I just can’t remember! LMAO!

        I’ll check back in six months to see who the rentally metarded Gilberto picks.

        • Still thinking about making that FB fan page mate?

  4. You’re going too far on this Gilberto. Mark Ruffalo will be in the Shield TV show. How much you wanna bet?

    • I bet you it’s not shield TV series it’s ironman 3 stupid.

      • @Gilberto & Sam – I’m done with you both. Calm down or leave. Say it with me “It’s JUST a TV show.”

        Now please grow up and discuss your ideas and disagreements like adults in a civil manner.

        Thanks,

  6. Wow u guys are really really funny but I have to agree with Sam, Ruffalo is a way better Hulk than Norton. But Spoiler alert I have to say I work for NBC Universal and we have (confirmed so far) neither Raffalo nor Norton will have any type of role in NBC Marvels “Agents Shield” so sorry Sam your wrong on that front

    • I don’t agree with you mark ruffalo is not a better Hulk or Bruce Banner than Norton at all. And Edward Norton has some thing to brig to the character than Mark Ruffalo.

  7. Wow u guys are really really funny a whole year on this !!! but I have to agree with Sam, Ruffalo is a way better Hulk than Norton. But Spoiler alert I have to say I work for NBC Universal and we have (confirmed so far) neither Raffalo nor Norton will have any type of role in NBC Marvels “Agents Shield” so sorry Sam your wrong on that front

  8. That’s funny the only thing Norton ever played that was good was Fight club and that’s because he had Brad Pitt helping him out lol. Also Raffalo looks moor belivleable as The Hulk in my opinion Norton does not the only reason why it seems to you that Norton brought more depth to the character is because he had a full length movie Raffalo did not but in the brief instance he was show as Bruce he made it his own

  9. That is totally fine all that sounds good and you keep dropping names but on set of shield , when asked about the late recasting of bruce banner/ the hulk and Stan the man him self said and I quote ” the Avengers movie was incredible I couldn’t of dream of doing a more perfect of a team of superheroes movie , and as for the hulk I’m happy with the choice they made the actor Is a great fit”. So Lou is cool but I’d rather listen to Stan. Also I herd this with my own ears

  10. Guys. Can you please just ignore Gilberto? PLEEEZE? It’s obvious that you’re not going to get through to him. Just ignore his comments and talk to other people. We all know that he’s wrong, so why add fuel to the fire? It’s sad. I now only come here to see if this Death Battle is still going. I checked out of here to talk on other groups because of this idiot.

    I’ll come back in a month. Sheesh!

    • No you are wrong and I”m right about what in the first and last. I heard the the picture clear so nappy just be quiet. I heard Norton is fired but not that he did n”t wanted to do a sequel because of kevin fegie stupid idea of replacing Norton for Ruffalo.

      • Listen Gilberto. I wasn’t talking to you. I was talking to everyone else who believe in facts and not fiction. So don’t talk to me. If I want your opinion, which I didn’t ask for, I will ask for it. You don’t give room to reason or rationale. Even when people on set tell you what’s true, you either don’t believe it or you change your story. That makes you unstable. You can’t even write a grammatically correct sentence so you are not worth my time.

        The only proof that is acceptable is when these TV series and movies come out. Only at that point, either you would be right or everyone else. I hope the latter.

        You can respond if you want, but I won’t care. So let’s be clear: THIS IS MY LAST COMMUNICATION WITH YOU.

        Only let me know when you learn how to formulate a sentence.

  12. Ok, so here is the thing. Nappy(and many others) I’m with you guys. I came on this site in hope of getting some relevant useful information or possibly some fun speculation on what may become of the hulk, as I feel his character portrayal has been a little all over the board. It would be cool to see that nailed down. So I signed up for this conversation. Now like twice a month my phone blows up with emails from this site. I see it and I get excited, only to then realized it is Gilberto. It is a waste of time. The only relevant info I have gotten was from that executive. Which was nice and should make someone like Gilberto stop and think. But, it didn’t. It has really soured my experience here, and I wish that it would please just stop. It has become really annoying. I hope they kick him off here, but I doubt that’ll happen. So, I am going to try and figure out how to delete this thread sub and maybe I’ll check in manually.

    • Well said KB. I couldn’t have articulated that better. I do hope things get better in this conversation. There are some intelligent ideas from some intelligent people (you and a few others). If everyone just ignores Bizarro I think we could salvage this.

      Hey Sam! Drop that deadbeat man. He’s not worth your time. There are more intelligent people that you can talk about the Hulk with.

      • And for you Nappy you don’t anything about actor s who is right for the role like Lou Ferrigno was the right person for the Hulk role than mark ruffalo”s Hulk.

      • And for you Nappy you don’t anything about the actor who is right for the role like Lou Ferrigno was the right person for the Hulk role than mark ruffalo”s Hulk.

    • KB stop thinking about trying to get rid of me from the screen rant that’s not going to happen or trying not to get the word out to people from me. You think you know every thing but don’t know anything about the actors on who is a per fect for the role as the character.

  13. I think if they use The Avengers as a springboard for the film and use Mark Ruffalo this could work. Ruffalo was a pleasant surprise as the Hulk and he holds all the traits a well rounded Banner should show.

  14. Well, i really want to see a Hulk Movie. It would be awesome, can’t wait.

  15. Well, i really want to see a Hulk Movie. It would be awesome.

  16. Come on The Adventures what a let down, they made the HULK look like a Big Green TROLL, the only thing they got right was Iron Man and because they did not change it from the original films, why can’t they get that through thiere heads, If it works don’t try and fix it. The first HULK film I thought was ok, the design for the HULK I thought was ok, but when The Incredible HULK film came out with this new version they got it Right Period, Thats What The HULK should look like, and I thought Ed Norton as Bruce Banner did a Fantastic job, I relly feel he was made for this part. I did not like Liz Tyler as Betty and rather the Original actress who played Betty, and I feel Betty’s Father in the first film played by did a better job in that role. As for this version of the HULK in the Avengers man what a joke. Thumbs Down. I hope Thier will be an Incredible HULK III with Ed Norton and bring back this version of the HULK PLEASE!!!!!

  17. I hope that they make a hulk movie where there is a red hulk or the hulk and iron man team up (since they look like buds in the avengers) and take on some gamma villains yes plural more then one villain.

  18. The Hulk is the best marvel character there is and the best character in The Avengers! They got the Hulk great in the 2008 film but they found the perfect actor for Bruce Banner in the Avengers. The Hulk deserves alot more respect and credit remembering the fact that he could pulverise any of the other Marvel characters without trying. So i believe that if they make a Hulk 3 or Increadible Hulk 2 that it would be a great success remembering how much both the Hulk and Bruce Banner improved as a character in the Avengers!

  19. I totally agree with you Ryan They portrayed the Hulk great in the 2008 movie and had to me a more Genuine and believable Bruce Banner in the Avengers films. I also wish they would put these two together is in a live-action film and I would believing do great That would be the perfect Hulk and Banner combo For the potential Hulk movie. Side note I would Have to disagree with you on The Hulk beating every Marvel character, because he wouldn’t beat the Blue Marvel do your research lol

    • I liked the Hulk better in 2008 better than The Avengers Bruce Banner. Edward Norton is a far bette Bruce Banner than Mark Ruffalo because Norton is a better runner than ruffalo is and far better shape than Ruffalo is.

  20. The hulk did steal the show. Every scene with him in it was badass. When Cap said “Hulk, Smash” and Hulk grinned and commenced to beating the living s*** out of everything that was moving….dude. That was the best part of an already awesome movie for me. Oh, and not to forget the funny ass part at the end where Hulk slung Loki around like a rag doll. Priceless:)

  21. The Avenger HULK look and Act like a BIG GREEN GORILLA!!!!!!!! I hope the graphic on him in the next movie are a lot better; The INCREDIBLE HULK with Edward Norton on blue ray was the best by far; no contest!!!!!!!

  22. I t would be entertaining to see the Hulk on another film. I think the big controversy in comic books that society looks at is comparisons and since he is the strongest in the marvel universe he’s always compared to superman who is the strongest in the D.C. universe. It would be nice to see the industry write together a magnificent story line that is capable of keeping the readers attention like this latest superman film, something outside the box. It mistakes and errors do not allure me, the Leader is not a physical challenge but a prudent villain. Someone like absorbing man may draw attention.

  23. I don’t even know the way I stopped up right here, however I thought this submit used to be great. I don’t know who you might be but definitely you’re going to a well-known blogger in case you aren’t already.
    Cheers!

  24. If you look at the comic book industry of Marvel and D.c, being that D.C choose their strongest character and Marvel is attempting to work on theirs at a successful rate; The motion of making a Hulk sequel would be healthy for the franchise. They just need a really good plot and story line and the Hulks strengths in the comic feature should match his tenacity in the film. If the writer for this next Hulk film is able to be extremely gifted like how this latest version of superman was then it could be a blockbuster.

  25. Look, don’t get me wrong, Mark Ruffalo is a great Hulk, but if they ever made another hulk movie, Edward Norton is the best Hulk. He completely embodies how Hulk would really be. I love Edward norton has hulk

  26. In the majority of cases, actors dispute over salaries with management concerning the movie. Sometimes the two don’t visualize money on equal terms which often equates to the actor abandoning the film. If it’s not that then there’s a lack of interest to get involved. Other than the actors. The HULK film with Edward Norton did seem to reveal the Hulks true personification from the comics. These other Hulks appear to be leaner, smaller and do know should the other aspects of the Hulks un matching ability to get stronger. If Marvel encourages the proper talent, who knows perhaps this next film could be surprisingly greater.

  27. Iv been a hulk fan since I was a lil kid an nomatter what anybodsays the hulk is #1 id f@#king love to see more hulk movies

  28. yes! i want to see another hulk movie, provided it contains a lot of action scenes

  29. Ok to all how don’t know… When ironman 1 came out the writer’s snagged the licenses of both hulk movies… The first hulk didn’t come back and Norton won’t come back either… The people who have the license told Norton to go away… That and Robert Downey Jr said he would walk if Norton came back… Actor that fit the role that sold the movie vs another actor that fit the bill who had a decent movie… They went with Robert Downey Jr… So norton went bye bye… Fail to understand this I’m sorry but come back when you get to puberty…
