Planet Hulk Movie (Now w/ 50% More Thor)

All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

"SPOILER" doesn't do it justice. I read that on Hitfix the other day and while I only have myself to blame for that, it hinges on a massive, MASSIVE spoiler concerning Avengers 2 and beyond. I get the point that Moriarty is trying to make about misinformation, but don't think the article is worth the details it discloses.

So is that Groot grappling with the hulk? If so, Christ, way throw that spioler image at the top of the article before saying "spoilers below"!

Robert Downey Jr. weighs in on the 'Black Widow' debate
Andrea Mandell wrote:When we brought up Lucy beating up Hercules at the box office this summer, Downey Jr. added (rather diplomatically), “The funny thing is honestly at this point everyone deserves a franchise. I think Jeremy Renner is — when folks see the Avengers: Age of Ultron he’s just a rockstar, a bada–. And Ruffalo is pumped. He does great (work). I’d like to hear them talk even more seriously about a Hulk franchise, because that’s been one of the toughest ones to get right. But I’m sure that my parent company is feeling expansive and and bold after the summer they’ve had.”

Mark Ruffalo Reveals Universal Owns the Rights to Solo HULK Movies
MATT GOLDBERG wrote:More importantly, what does that mean for seeing Hulk carry his own feature?

RUFFALO:
As far as a Hulk movie, a standalone Hulk movie, Marvel doesn’t really have the rights to that yet. That’s still Universal’s property, so there’s that issue. That’s a big impediment to moving forward with that. Now I don’t think that’s insurmountable, by the way, but I don’t know where it’s going from here for me.

I hadn't realized that.

Too bad. I would really be curious to see another standalone HULK film.

Whedon just had a few thoughts on this as well right here.

Why Joss Whedon Cut The Hulk’s Best Scene From AGE OF ULTRON
Filmmaking is about making tough choices, and Whedon was forced to make the toughest.

DEVIN FARACI wrote:In my review of Avengers: Age of Ultron, I mentioned that the film didn’t have many of the fist-pumping moments that made The Avengers special. But it wasn’t always that way - the original script had a Hulk moment that was so good it would have been THE fist-pumping moment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It wasn’t in the final movie, and I didn’t know why. So I asked Whedon when I interviewed him a few weeks ago. But first, a note from Joss that explains why I won’t tell you what this cool thing was:

Joss Whedon wrote:I don’t talk about it specifically because I said to Marvel, ‘You can use this in another movie! Hold on to that!’

Mark Ruffalo Wants To See Bruce Banner Separated From Hulk


MARK RUFFALO DOESN'T SEE A STANDALONE HULK FILM COMING ANYTIME SOON
Lauren Gallaway wrote:Ruffalo also talked what types of scenes he would like to see in a standalone film, if such a thing was possible. Ruffalo said he would love to see Bruce Banner and The Hulk meet each other. "When I was doing Age of Ultron -- doing the Scarlet Witch acid trip scenes -- it really took me a long time to figure out what the Hulk would be afraid of. And then I realized, it was Banner."

i'm looking forward to it, I think it could be among Marvel's biggest hits, too, as long as they don't forget to balance all that Thor & Hulk action with some humor

It's being directed by weirdo-auteur Taika Waititi (Eagle vs. Shark, Flight of the Conchords, What We Do in the Shadows, upcoming stop-motion movie about Bubbles the Chimp), so it damn well better be funny. I'm not UN-interested btw, but until I see some footage I really don't know how to feel. I like both Thor movies okay, but they're a tier below their contemporaries (Iron Man and Captain America).

It seemed at the time that having Brannagh direct the first Thor film was an attempt to produce a highbrow mythology film series. In that vein, they never succeeded for me. I just never found the Thor films interesting. I enjoyed the character in the Avengers, but the solo films just lacked something for me. I love the ideas in the Ragnarok plot details - especially the humor. Definitely looking forward to this one.

I think I'll go see this, although I've skipped most of the Marvel movies. I did see the first two THORs in the theater and thought the second one was pretty bland, but this looks kinda colorful and interesting and let's face it I saw that picture of Cate Blanchett lookin friggin' hawt and that's the actual reason I'm gonna go see this.

I think the Iron Man movies are over-rated, and the Thor movies have more emotional depth and character development than people give them credit for.

SPOILERS
THOR RAGNAROK'S COMICS INSPIRATIONS:
The third film for the God of Thunder will pull from many different Marvel Comics sources.

Collider:
How Thor: Ragnarok Is Inspired by Big Trouble in Little China



The Myths and Legends Podcast
62-Thor: Hammer Time
Jason Weiser wrote:Quite possibly the last episode on Norse mythology before we start on the epic showdown that is Ragnarok, this story has Thor earning a ridiculous facial feature and wetting himself in terror. Also, you shouldn't follow Loki into the wilderness, no matter how good the party he is telling you about sounds, and we'll learn how far is too far when it comes to idle, drunken boasts in the halls of the gods.

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales. In Norse Mythology, Gaiman fashions primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds; delves into the exploits of the deities, dwarves, and giants; and culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and people. Gaiman stays true to the myths while vividly reincarnating Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki, the son of giants, a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator. From Gaiman's deft and witty prose emerges the gods with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to dupe others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.


I recommend these books: Ragnarok: The End of the Gods & The Norse Myths (Pantheon Fairy Tale & Folklore Library)
