When The Avengers broke out to be a massive hit in theaters last year, part of it was due to the re-imagined appearance of the angry green giant known as The Hulk. The new Hulk stole the show so much that rumors of a solo film began to circulate shortly after the film ended its theatrical run.
Speaking at the Dublin International Film Festival for the European premiere of Much Ado About Nothing, director Joss Whedon addressed the possibility of a solo Hulk movie as well as what fans should expect from The Avengers sequel.
"Death, death and death," he joked.
While remaining tight-lipped about the sequel, he did open up about a Hulk movie.
"Yes [it would be possible]. But it would be very, very hard. The problem is the Hulk is a very popular character, but he's not a superhero. Half of him is a superhero, half of him is a werewolf. You can't structure it like a superhero movie. The one thing you would have in your favor would be Mark Ruffalo. But right now I don't know if they have plans to do that or not, because he works so well as part of a greater whole. But by himself, it's tough."
Does it sound like Whedon is side-stepping the rumors of a Hulk movie? Do you think his statements prove the Hulk rumors are false? Sound off below and check out the a video clip from the festival which includes an introduction filled with Whedon title puns.
