Add this under the topic of “non-news.” Comic book writer Mark Waid was talking to Newsarama about his new Indestructible Hulk comic book storyline “Hulk, Agent of T.I.M.E.” Along they way, he was also asked if he thought Hulk could headline his own movie again.
Well, of course he could.
“Oh, please, yes! He’s tailor made for a film adventure,” Waid gushes. “Wasn’t he the breakaway star of Avengers? He was in my theater, I’ll tell you that! [Ruffalo is] spot-on. I love how he’s more driven than tormented and the Bruce Banner/Tony Stark bromance is positively inspirational.”
Yeah, I liked the Bruce Banner-Tony Stark stuff as well, but that isn’t where they need to go in the movie world. But, the problem here is what do fans want to see from a Hulk movie?
That is where the problems lie. No one agrees on anything. There are a lot of people (a lot) who hate Ang Lee’s The Hulk. There was not enough action, was too much art house sensibilities and both the Hulk Dogs and the final fight with the Absorbing Man was kind of crap. But, overall, I thought there were some positives about it as well.
Well, those fans who wanted more action and less drama got it with The Incredible Hulk, and they hated it too. It is easy to see why Marvel is gun shy about giving up another Hulk movie since nothing makes anyone happy.
So, with that said, what do YOU – the reader – want to see in a Hulk movie. What would make you happy? Let us know in the comment section below.
I want to see Hulk SMASH!!!! And I like the greener looking Hulk better. I think the combination of love/sappy stuff and mean green maniac action just needs to be evened out. Of course there has to be some type of storyline/inner struggle for Banner but his counterpart has to show up more than 2 times in the movie. I did like Mr. Ruffalo as Banner. My favorite line was “I’m always angry” right before going into Hulk mode (in Avengers movie).
