One day after current Hulk alter ego Mark Ruffalo tweeted that there were no plans for a standalone Hulk movie — only to further confuse matters by explaining that there could be a standalone Hulk movie, someday, because really anything can happen and also giant corporations love making money — Avengers director and Marvel Movie steersman Joss Whedon took the time to weigh in on the ambient possibility of a Hulk movie. The writer-director tells IGN that the rumors of an extended multi-movie Planet Hulk storyline are, in a word, “Nonsense.” See his snappy response in this video below: READ FULL STORY »

The last decade saw two separate attempts to transform the Hulk into a big-screen movie star. First came Ang Lee’s splitscreeny Hulk; then came Louis Leterrier’s Norton-y The Incredible Hulk. Neither film really connected with moviegoers. But Mark Ruffalo put a distinctive spin on the character in last year’s Avengers, giving troubled scientist Bruce Banner a wry sense of humor. (He also got the best line in the movie.) It seemed like an easy bet that Marvel would spin-off the Ruffalized Hulk into his own solo movie. But the big green rage monster has so far been absent from Marvel’s Phase Two movie series. Yesterday, Ruffalo himself took to Twitter to speak about the status of a Hulk-centric movie: READ FULL STORY »
Any kid can tell you that one of the great pleasures of any toy is unpacking that sealed box for the first time and putting all the parts and stickers together.
Visual effects house Industrial Light & Magic has given EW’s CapeTown a video that might give fans of The Avengers that same feeling.
The collection of behind-the-scenes clips reveals everything from the simulated Mark Ruffalo they created to morph into The Hulk, to the fact that most of New York in the movie was a digitally painted backdrop.
Marvel Studios is pursuing an aggressive strategy with their upcoming slate of superhero films, releasing two extended-universe spin-offs per year from next May’s Iron Man 3 to November 2015′s Ant-Man. But perhaps you feel like that simply isn’t enough. In that case, you’ll almost certainly enjoy Marvel’s Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United, a straight-to-DVD animated film that will apparently be about Iron Man and Hulk, who are heroes, uniting.
A new trailer for the project shows the two crimefighters battling a horde of superpowered mandroids. “Maybe I shouldn’t have built so many mandroids!” says Iron Man. “Ya think?!?!” says Hulk. (They’re such good friends!) Iron Man is voiced by Adrian Pasdar (Heroes Nathan Petrelli), while Fred Tatasciore will one again voice the big green guy. Watch the trailer: READ FULL STORY »
Marvel Animation Studios has exclusively revealed plans to EW for its debut feature, Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United, which will team Tony Stark and Bruce Banner in a fight against the villain Zzzax, a creature formed out of pure energy who can absorb human minds.
As these first images show, the movie (which will debut on home video April 23) is a hybrid of computer-generated animation and hand-drawn art.
At last night’s world premiere of The Avengers in Hollywood, the red carpet was packed with huge movie stars. But of course, that was the point, since The Avengers brings together several heroes from the Marvel universe to form a superteam to defend Earth. Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and the Hulk already have their own franchises, and Black Widow and Hawkeye are poised to break out, but did the cast ever doubt that all these characters could fit in one movie. Yes, actually. “If I’m being honest, I thought there were going to be too many in Avengers until we read the final script,” said Scarlett Johansson. READ FULL STORY »
