Joss Whedon

There’s been a handful of conflicting standalone Hulk film reports floating around the web in the past few weeks. It all started when Latino-Review had an exclusive scoop on the future of the character and his standalone films. Marvel Studios didn’t comment on the subject when the news broke, but the people behind the film began to speak out about the impossibility of there being a solo Hulk film, namely The Avengers and The Avengers 2 director Joss Whedon.

Back then he said making a solo Hulk film would be “very, very hard.” Now, Whedon is clarifying his previous statements, but also maintaining that they don’t know much about the solo Hulk film that is supposedly being planned for Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

New Report Smashes ‘Planet Hulk’ Rumors; Joss Whedon Says Solo Hulk Movie Would Be “Very Hard”

The Avengers Hulk Smash

Considering Joss Whedon is the chief creative consultant for all things Marvel at Walt Disney Studios, he would have oversight on the structure of not only The Avengers 2, but any other film that precedes it. One of the biggest stories to hit the web in the past few weeks came from El Mayimbe from Latino Review. According to his inside sources, The Avengers 2 would be a segue for Hulk’s solo film, Planet Hulk, and then use the World War Hulk storyline for The Avengers 3. Previous statements made by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige seemed to support that story.

It seems to make sense. Both Planet Hulk and World War Hulk were highly successful story arcs that sold really well on comic book stands, and those two stories would fit perfectly into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Whedon is coming out and saying that not only a Hulk solo movie would be “very, very hard” to do, but a new report seems to squash all the rumors and speculations of the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe being based on the two aforementioned Hulk story arcs.

Marvel Studios’ Plans For The Hulk In Phase 2 & Phase 3

Marvel's Big Plans For The Hulk

Back in September, Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige stated that he had a couple of ideas for a Hulk movie. A solo film for Marvel’s green muscle bound hero has had some mild success, but for the most part the hero has been the most difficult to adapt, mostly because Marvel runs the risk of being repetitive in terms of what the Hulk will be doing.

Feige told MTV that Hulk was worthy enough of having his own film, but it was just a matter of finding the right story. Now a report from Latino Review says that Marvel has some big plans for the Hulk. WARNING, spoilers do follow, so if you don’t want to know about what Marvel’s plans has in store for the Hulk, then I suggest you hit that back button. But if you want to know, then hit the jump.

Joss Whedon Talks ‘Avengers 2’ Script, ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ TV Show & Marvel Films

The Avengers director Joss Whedon

To say that Joss Whedon is overwhelmingly busy would probably be an understatement. The guy is currently writing and will direct The Avengers 2; he’s an executive producer for the planned S.H.I.E.L.D. television series, and he’s a creative consultant for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only that, but he also has to push his contemporary adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing in the summer. So yeah, he’s got a lot on his plate. But somehow he finds the time to attend events, and at a recent function, he shared a few things about the status of The Avengers 2, S.H.I.E.L.D., and his involvement in creating the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Whedon told MTV that The Avengers 2 has an outline and that the script should be ready in a few months. On the tone of the film, he said that The Avengers 2 would go deeper instead of bigger. Honestly after a huge battle like the one we saw in the first film, it be nice to get a more personal story and take a step back from the big hefty action. Apparently he wants to go so deep and personal that it will be painful.

Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull

Very few of the Marvel Cinematic Universe villains have lived long enough to see a sequel. But one fate that is the most mysterious so far is the fate of the Red Skull. While Tom Hiddleston‘s Loki continues to live on to be a threat to Thor and The Avengers, Hugo Weaving doesn’t seem to be too excited to reprise his role as the Red Skull, a character he captured effortlessly in Joe Johnston’s Captain America: The First Avenger.

While the actor did admit that he wasn’t keen on coming back as the Red Skull, he also said that he would reprise the role only because he is contractually obligated to do so. Here is the full quote from Collider.

Emily Blunt & Ruth Wilson Courted For Ms. Marvel In ‘The Avengers 2?’

Emily Blunt & Ruth Wilson

If there is one thing we shouldn’t be hearing about now, it’s the casting of vital roles in The Avengers 2. For one thing, it still way too early for anything like that to happen. But the Daily Mail, a source notoriously for concocting unsubstantiated rumors, reports that Marvel is courting Emily Blunt (Looper, The Wolfman, The Adjustment Bureau) and Ruth Wilson (Alice Morgan on BBC TV’s Luther). for the coveted role of Ms. Marvel – a character that is unconfirmed for the sequel.

It wouldn’t surprise me – or anyone else for that matter – that Joss Whedon would include a strong female character like Ms. Marvel in The Avengers 2, but until we get some hard evidence from let’s say, the people making The Avengers 2, we will just have to consider that this casting possibility is just a rumor.

Guardians of the Galaxy

The Avengers is behind us now, and Marvel Studios is paving the way for Phase Two by releasing Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World next year. While the events of the respective films will have an affect on what we will see in Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers 2, not much has been heard of that big purple raisin faced villain called Thanos.

Up until now, Thanos’ appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers 2 has been nothing but a rumor. But now that James Gunn has been named director of Guardians, we are getting a few more details about the film itself. Details that seem to confirm that Thanos will be the villain in both films.

Joss Whedon

Yesterday Joss Whedon shared some of his thoughts on the script for the upcoming James Gunn-directed Guardians of the Galaxy, just one of the many important pieces to Marvel Studios’ Phase Two. Now The Avengers director is opening up about Marvel Studios’ plans for Phase Two in general and giving us one more clue about what we could possibly see in The Avengers 2.

In addition to being the director of The Avengers 2, Whedon is also a creative contributor for any Marvel Studios-related projects until the year 2015. Basically Whedon is the captain that steers the ship in the right direction. And much like The Avengers, the events in Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, and possibly Ant-Man will dictate what could possibly happen in The Avengers 2. But Whedon doesn’t want to get in the way and wants the directors of their respective films to make their work their own.

The Avengers

This is exactly what happens when your movie happens to have a record-breaking weekend opening of $207.1 million ($700 million worldwide if you are keeping count). Yesterday, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that Marvel Studios is already developing The Avengers 2. Deadline was the first to break the news.

While The Avengers getting a sequel and the core cast returning to reprise their respective roles is unquestionable, we don’t know if Joss Whedon is returning to write and direct the film. Still that isn’t stopping Iger from singing praises for the film, as according to him The Avengers‘ success “is a great illustration of why we like Marvel so much.”
