There’s been a few rumours since “The Avengers” about the potential of a movie adaptation of the popular Marvel comic storyline “Planet Hulk” which could star Mark Ruffalo.
Both Ruffalo and Marvel chief Kevin Feige have dismissed the idea on several occasions. The most recent report went as far as suggesting the “Guardians of the Galaxy” sequel could include plot elements from the storylines due to events that are rumored to take place at the end of “Avengers: Age of Ultron”.
Now, filmmaker James Gunn has shot down those rumours pretty clearly. The “Guardians of the Galaxy” helmer tells The Playlist:
“I can answer that question very easily: it is absolute, 100% bulls–t. It feels like a great relief to finally say this after all the dumb stuff on the Internet. There’s not going to be a ‘Planet Hulk’ movie, there was never going to be a ‘Planet Hulk’ movie, there was never plan for the Hulk to team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy – I wouldn’t want the Hulk to team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy. And it’s all a bunch of complete bulls–t.”
Speaking of ‘Guardians’, an extended clip from Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” debuted on the USA Network last night. The film opens in cinemas on August 1st.
