New Hulk movie to arrive after Avengers 2?

Ever since Mark Ruffalo signed on to play the Hulk in The Avengers there has been talk of a possible standalone movie, and some digging by Latino Review (opens in new tab) suggests that his moment in the spotlight may come after the arrival of Avengers 2 .

According to the site, Avengers 2 will feature a post-credits scene that tees up a standalone Hulk movie, with the big green rage-ball being deemed too unstable to be allowed to stay on Earth.

Hulk is then blasted off into space to follow a storyline based around the comic-book, Planet Hulk , in which our hero winds up on the planet Sakaar, where he leads a rebellion against the evil Red King.

That in turn will set up the events of Avengers 3 , in which Hulk and his new army of followers return to Earth to get him some payback, following the Avengers vs. Hulk arc featured in the World War Hulk book.

Now obviously none of this has received any official confirmation, but we’d love to see the Hulk taken into more interesting territory than simply smashing on demand for S.H.I.E.L.D. And what better villain for the Avengers to ultimately face, than a pissed off member of their own ranks?

We’ll find out if the rumours are true when Avengers 2 lands in the UK on 1 May 2015.
