The latest Barside Buzz is that Hulkling is not even in Agatha: Coven of Chaos. This is in reference to the recent rumors we covered that Hulkling would show up in Agatha and be played by Miles Gutierrez-Riley. You can take a look at the original story in the related section below. However I should point out this was more theory than source based.
Since that story started doing the rounds however, Grace Randolph has piped up to say it’s incorrect. Randolph says she has confirmed information that Hulkling is not even a character that appears in Agatha: Coven of Chaos. Instead the insider says Miles Gutierrez-Riley is actually playing an earlier love interest of Wiccan, who will appear in the show.
I just got confirmation that Miles Gutierrez-Riley is NOT #Hulkling

Now since there have been no legit claims that Hulkling is present in the show, this answer could well make sense. Frankly I doubt I am alone in not caring one iota about Hulkling. For me the character was z tier in the Marvel comics. A character that is called Hukling, has nothing to do with Hulk and is in fact a cross species between Kree and Skrull. I mean this is hardly a character I’ve been hoping to see since Phase 1.
One wonders whether Hulkling might just not make it to the MCU? I would have zero issues with that. Wiccan/Billy is far more important a character than his partner is in my opinion.
As with all rumors though take this one with a pinch of salt. In the past Grace’s MCU leaks haven’t been the best, but she must have a new source because they have been improving recently. That being said, this is all just rumor until you hear something more official.
What do you think of this rumor that Hulkling is not even in Agatha: Coven of Chaos? Are you ambivalent like me, or hoping the character does appear eventually? Thoughts below as always.
