All The Hulk You Can Handle: Marvel Studios Are Planning To Adapt ‘Planet Hulk’ And ‘World War Hulk’

Phase Two of Marvel’s movie universe kicks off this year, but pssh, whatever. That’s old news. What about Phase Three? Specifically, what’s going to be happening with the Hulk?

Well, as we previously reported a solo Hulk movie will happen after The Avengers 2 (so in 2016 at the earliest) and now rumors are flying that it’s going to be based on the Planet Hulk storyline. For those who haven’t read the story, basically the heroes of earth decide Hulk’s too dangerous to have around, so they exile him to a distant and dangerous planet, and Hulk is all “yeah, whatever jerks” and takes over said planet.

Oh, and Avengers 3? It’s going to be based on World War Hulk, which follows up Planet Hulk by showing what happens when Hulk finally finds his way home (hint: it involves punching). So yeah, you’ll have to wait a while, but there’s a lot of green goliath goodness on it’s way.

Nice to see a more recent story get adapted instead of drawing on stuff from the 80s and 90s like most major superhero movies.
