The last stand alone Hulk film came in 2008, and starred Edward Norton in the title role. The film was an improvement over the 2003 effort directed by Ang Lee that starred Eric Bana, but it didn’t necessarily satisfy fans. The need for a Hulk solo film is out there, but will fans ever see another one? There is no one better to ask than Marvel’s  Kevin Feige, who recently spoke with IndieWire and talked about how the idea of a Hulk solo film has changed over the course of the first ten years of the MCU:

“I think that back and forth continues, and I don’t know if it will ever happen, but I will tell you, it makes me very, very happy going from a world, ten years ago, when people were questioning the viability of Hulk in a standalone film, to getting asked every other interview, ‘When will there be another standalone Hulk?’”

While it may have been doubtful that a Hulk stand alone would have worked in the MCU’s infancy, today is a much different story. Even though Hulk is probably at his best as a complement to another character, I think he is established now and well liked enough that a Hulk solo movie should be somewhere in Marvel’s future. The problem is the rights to Hulk solo films are held by Universal, and while after the success of Spider-Man: Homecoming, a similar deal could likely be reached, but Marvel would have to see a lot of value there to go to the trouble of negotiating for a Hulk solo film.

    Thor: Ragnarok should have been World War Hulk. No idea why they decided it absolutely shouldn’t have happened when The Hulk is far more fun to watch on screen than Thor.

      Something something Universal contract…

  • I think there are a lot of really good stories left for them to explore with Hulk. They have barely scratched the surface so far. I hope so.

    They should at least finish what they started with the Leader.

    Does Kevin Feige talk to the media every day? Seems like it.

    When Disney becomes a Major Power House in the entertainment industry… it could really ask marvel fans to boycott universal into selling the rights to marvel… but they’re not at that level at the moment since Universal still has major money raking properties like Fast and Furious, Jurassic Park…

    it makes sense for Sony to share Spiderman… because it was a Win Win… Sony needed the help of the MCU to save Spiderman and the MCU is some what the more complete with Spiderman being a part of it…

    its not like we’re not getting Hulk in MCU movies.. we’re getting plenty… but just for a Standalone… if they need to put tony stark in the movie… then it doesnt breach the contract so they can make a Hulk Movie with Tony Stark… just the Hulk cant be the Title Name of the Movie…
