‘Planet Hulk’ Not Happening At Marvel After All?

So, about that “Planet Hulk” movie… perhaps it’s not happening after all.

Ain’t It Cool News has a new report suggesting that the original word on Hulk’s Phase Three space epic got it wrong — no such movie is in the works, according to the outlet.

“According to my source, this just isn’t happening – not as long as Marvel’s got Mark Ruffalo committed to a six-picture deal as Bruce Banner,” writes AICN’s Mr. Beaks. “And that’s the primary issue with PLANET HULK: Banner isn’t in it at all .”

“After two false starts with Banner, Marvel is thrilled with Ruffalo,” he continues. “The last thing they want to do is reduce his role. Sure, they could have Ruffalo play Hulk in mocap, but the Banner element would be gone – and this evidently is important to Marvel.”

El Mayimbe, the original source on the “Planet Hulk” rumor, took to Twitter to say he stands by his story. Both he and Beaks stress that fans shouldn’t expect any official confirmation or denial from Marvel’s camp; in other words, we’ll just have to wait and see who’s right and who’s wrong in this situation. As a big fan of “Planet Hulk,” I’m certainly hoping the original story holds up.
