Lou Ferrigno Claims a New Hulk Movie is Coming After 'Avengers 2'
Just after revealing a return to voice grunts, roars and other sounds from The Hulk that don't involve real dialogue in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, iconic bodybuilder and TV star Lou Ferrigno has more potential news for fans of the not-so-jolly green giant. While doing an interview with a radio station in Minnesota (via Latino Review), Ferrigno said, "Now because [Hulk] saved the day [in the first Avengers] they’re making another solo Hulk movie after the second Avengers comes out.” While it would stand to reason that a spot for Hulk in Phase Three would be perfect, would Ferrigno be the best source for info?
Ferrigno has said similar things before, but currently Hulk star Mark Ruffalo has previously said that there are no plans for a standalone Hulk movie in the immediate future. Of course, Ruffalo could always just be playing coy, or maybe the development is just so early at Marvel that he doesn't know about it yet. After all, we've heard rumors of a potential Planet Hulk movie and maybe even a World War Hulk storyline for The Avengers 3. Of course, the latter ensemble sequel seems like it will already be full with the rest of the Marvel movies likely leading up to the Thanos and The Infinity Gauntlet storyline (hinted in Thor: The Dark World) so who knows what will happen.
On the more concrete side of news about The Incredible Hulk, one thing that Ruffalo did reveal recently (via ScreenRant) was that motion-capture master Andy Serkis was helping him with his work on The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Yes, Ruffalo is still playing Hulk in the movie, but we're betting it doesn't hurt to get some motion-capture performance tips from the best in the business. Serkis is becoming quite the go-to talent for big blockbusters with his unique talents, and if you need more proof, don't forget that he just got cast in Star Wars: Episode VII. Anyway, we'll let you know if we hear anymore Hulk news. Thoughts?
