‘The Hulk’ to Get Stand-Alone Reboot in 2015

Mark Ruffalo's The Hulk will get a stand-alone reboot in 2015Marvel's The Avengers is already making waves at the box office, taking in an impressive $18.7 million from midnight screenings. Mark Ruffalo is the new addition to Marvel's superhero lineup, portraying The Incredible Hulk, and it seems the studio already has plans for a new Hulk reboot in 2015.

Paul Gitter, Marvel's president of consumer products, recently revealed that plans are in place for a stand-alone merchandising line to be unveiled next year, which will be, "presumably supported by another big budget franchise movie in 2015."

The Hulk has a unique cinematic history over the past decade. Ang Lee's 2003 Hulk didn't exactly set the world on fire at the box office, which lead to Louis Leterrier's The Incredible Hulk reboot in 2008. Even though The Incredible Hulk fared much better, both critically and financially, than Hulk, Marvel still replaced Edward Norton with Mark Ruffalo in Marvel's The Avengers.

Don't be surprised to hear more about this project in the near future, once the box office receipts for Marvel's The Avengers start to roll in.

Marvel's The Avengers was released May 4th, 2012.

          Would love for them to pursue the Hulk Busters, General Thunderbolt Ross and his mutation to the Red Hulk out of revenge. Would get more people interested

            i'm pretty sure it won't be a reboot just a sequel to the Incredible Hulk

              @corey I agree. His performance as the Hulk/Bruce Banner was very good. I hope he'll be back for a new Hulk movie and possibly the Avengers 2.

                I personally think if Ruffalo was in it it'd turn out good.

                  NO. The Hulk doesn't work on his own, that's been proven both of the last two times.

                      @Carroll-Boxwell No, that wasn't a red hulk. It was Thanos and the other credits scene was the Avengers team sitting quietly together eating, which that was pretty funny seeing at the end :P .

                        are they planning on making another Avengers? On the end credits on the Avengers movies was that a red hulk?

                            @diaigma I am as well. I wouldn't mind seeing another Hulk movie. I just hope Mark Ruffalo will be in it.

                                @bawnian-dexeus ...Thats true about the Chitauri actually being known as Skrulls in the Ulitmate comics, but i think its good they went with just the general version of Chitauri this time, so that maybe by the time the sequels for The Avengers or other space based films Marvel Studios does, they will have the rights and be able to use the actual Skrulls as villians

                                    @Robert-McDougal You mean Iron Man 3, I hope. Iron Man 2 came out in 2010.

                                        @vampire2000 Actually, The Chituari are an Ultimate version of the Scrull. They didn't use the former name because of copyrights

                                          @bane5000 That's an interesting concept. However, I'm wondering if maybe he was teleported the Skrull planet or something. That's what I assumed the Chitauri were supposed to be, but clearly they're saving the Skrull for later, if anything at all.
