The Marvel Cinematic Universe has gone by many, many adjustments during the last 12 years.
For one, again in 2008, Iron Man was nonetheless seen as a B-list comedian e book character, whereas Terrence Howard and Edward Norton have been enjoying the roles of Rhodey/Conflict Machine and Bruce Banner/Unimaginable Hulk, respectively.
Quick ahead to 2020, and the MCU appears a heck of rather a lot completely different. Not solely is Iron Man now one of the vital widespread comedian e book heroes round, however Kevin Feige and co. additionally changed Terrence Howard with Don Cheadle, and removed Edward Norton and introduced in Mark Ruffalo, who acquired a pleasant three-movie arc that began in Thor: Ragnarok and concluded in Endgame. However what comes subsequent?
Effectively, if a brand new idea on Reddit is heading in the right direction, then the Hulk would possibly simply change into the villain within the subsequent Avengers movie, because it may very effectively loosely adapt the well-known World Conflict Hulk arc from the comics.
Right here’s the way it reads:
Banner destroyed his arm and Natasha died, then Tony will get all of the credit score for the victory when it was Hulk who snapped and introduced everybody again.
Banner has anger points, regardless of Ruffalo’s model being chill, it’s nonetheless in his historical past.
I see it like this:
Banner will get depressed, begins pondering if solely I used to be as robust as I used to be on Sakaar I may have snapped and introduced Natasha again and/or defeated Thanos and save her from having to sacrifice herself. This results in the “Satan” Hulk popping out which within the MCU will mainly be a vengeful violent model of the tremendous robust World Breaker Hulk introduced on by Banner’s guilt and anger.
It’s an fascinating idea, and never the primary time a villainous arc for Hulk has been predicted, however will we really see it play out? Presumably, but it surely’s nonetheless far too early to say.
We all know that the studio nonetheless intends to do extra with the Jade Large, as Ruffalo is all however confirmed to return for the She-Hulk collection. There’ve additionally been whispers that they’ve acquired the rights again for the character, which means they will make one other solo film for him.
However once more, it’s too early to be mapping out what the long run has in retailer for the Hulk. Relaxation assured, although, we haven’t seen the final of the fan favourite Avenger and with a bit of luck, he’ll be again on our screens earlier than we all know it. Watch this area for extra.
