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.
