Is She Hulk plot for the World War Hulk movie?
With the new trailers of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law hitting the internet, several fan theories are pouring online as usual. When Marvel announced the release of She-Hulk for the first time, there were rumors of Megan Thee Stallion to cast as She-Hulk. Later on, those rumors were cleared as Tatiana Maslany was cast as Bruce Banner's cousin.
And, recently Marvel fans got to witness an aircraft similar to the movie, Thor: Ragnarok. The plane is recognized to be from the planet Sakaar. This has already made way for new fan theories to emerge. The internet is already buzzing about Hulk's son, Skaar. Moreover, Marvel fans are talking about the plot for the new MCU project, The Incredible Hulk Returns. Everyone is hyped up for a new solo movie for the strongest Avenger, The Hulk.
Before getting into the topic, it would be better for everyone to be familiar with World War Hulk. So, what is World War Hulk? and will we get a World War Hulk movie in MCU?
What is World War Hulk?
In Marvel Comics, Hulk has taken several forms. And among them, the strongest one was the World-Breaker Hulk from World War Hulk. But what is World War Hulk?
Basically, World War Hulk is a comic book crossover based on the storyline of the Hulk. The plot follows the revenge story of Hulk when he gets banished from Earth due to Illuminati.
During Bruce Banner's banishment, his wife happened to be pregnant at that time. Somehow, Hulk's wife loses her life due to health issues. Then, Hulk starts blaming the Illuminati for her death. After that Bruce starts taking his revenge on other superheroes including Illuminati. But, the question remains.
Will we get a World War Hulk Movie in MCU?
Among all the founding members of the Avengers, Hulk portrayed by Mark Ruffalo is yet to feature in his own standalone movie.
We did get to see "The Incredible Hulk" in MCU, however, Edward Norton portrayed the character of the Hulk in the movie. And ever since the recast of the character, we have only seen Hulk in supporting roles in Marvel Cinematic Universe.
So there are fair chances that we might get to see a World War Hulk movie in MCU. Also, some reports about the development of a solo Hulk project have already started surfacing on the internet. Thanks to the new Marvel female superhero, She-Hulk.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law
"She-Hulk: Attorney at Law" is an American television series based on the characters from Marvel Comics. Jessica Gao is the head writer of this television series whereas Kat Coiro is the one leading the directing team. Tatiana Maslany portrays the character of Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk alongside Mark Ruffalo and several other stars.
In this series, we will be able to see a new character in MCU. But along with that, we will see Mark Ruffalo reprise his role as Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk as well.
Is She-Hulk a plot for the World War Hulk movie?
One of the most talked about MCU rumors at the moment is a solo Hulk movie's development. So there is a fair chance for Marvel to use "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law" to set up a movie for Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk.
Based on the comic book storyline, the rumored standalone Hulk movie will introduce all the conflicts of Bruce Banner. He will go on a feud with other Marvel characters. Several fans have also connected this theory to "Thunderbolts".
She-Hulk is yet to premiere, so it is not possible to confirm anything at the moment. But looking at the rumors going around, we might see Bruce Banner in his own standalone movie.
How will She-Hulk be a plot for the World War Hulk movie?
The recent video from Marvel Studios for "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law" shows the arrival of an aircraft from Sakaar. The aircraft causes an accident for Bruce Banner and his cousin, Jennifer Walters.
But who was in the aircraft? The answer to this question isn't confirmed yet. However, some fans have their own theory regarding this. As per some fan theories, the one who will arrive in the aircraft will be the Hulk's son, Skaar.
Who is Hulk's Son, Skaar?
Skaar is a fictional character from Marvel Comics. He is the son of the Hulk and Caiera. Skaar got conceived during the "Planet Hulk" storyline.
Will Skaar make his debut in MCU?
As of now, the fan theories do indicate the introduction of Skaar. But the only problem with this theory is how was Skaar born.
In "Thor: Ragnarok", the Hulk did end up in Sakaar. So, Marvel Studios can use this storyline to introduce Skaar. But only time will tell whether he will appear in Marvel Cinematic Universe.
What can we expect from the World War Hulk Movie?
It is not a secret that "Thunderbolts" is in the development stage as well. Why are we talking about the Thunderbolts? Well in comics, the Thunderbolts made their first appearance to go against the Hulk.
So, the chances for that to happen in MCU are there as well. Among several characters, Abomination will appear in "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law". He is one of the rumored characters to join the team of the Thunderbolts. If that does happen, then we can expect to see Abomination vs Hulk for the first time since 2008.
Not only that, we might be able to see a different form of the Hulk as well. In Marvel comics, we got introduced to World-Breaker Hulk in World War Hulk. But the question is, will MCU follow the same storyline? That's not it, the new storyline of Hulk's movie has made room for important characters. It includes Red Hulk, Red-She Hulk & more.
Will Red She-Hulk appear in Marvel Cinematic Universe?
There is a high probability for the character, Red She-Hulk to appear in MCU. As Bruce Banner's cousin, Jennifer Walters has already made her MCU debut as She-Hulk. Now it's just a matter of time for Red She-Hulk to appear in Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Who is Red She-Hulk?
In Marvel Comics, Red She-Hulk is no one other than Betty Ross. Yes, Betty Ross goes on to become the Red She-Hulk. Betty is the daughter of General Thaddeus E. "Thunderbolt" Ross. And, she is the love interest of Bruce Banner. She gained her powers when she got infused with an incredible amount of gamma radiation.
Let's go back to the question, "Will Red She-Hulk appear in World War Hulk Movie"? As we know, Betty Ross has already appeared in MCU. Since the new Hulk movie is still not confirmed, it is not possible to predict who will appear in the movie.
But we can expect Red She-Hulk to appear as she is the lover of Bruce Banner. General Ross's daughter has a long history with the Hulk. It is definitely going to be interesting to see Red She-Hulk in future MCU projects. And, while talking about Bruce's love life, we got a whole different story in the current MCU timeline.
Hulk and Black Widow's Love Story
Bruce Banner, aka Hulk, and Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, had good chemistry in the Marvel movies. We did get to see a short-lived romance between them. But will we see Hulk and Black Widow's story again in Marvel Cinematic Universe?
The chances for this to happen are quite less. Since Natasha is not alive in MCU, it will make no sense to see a love story between Hulk and Black Widow. We might see a few flashbacks of Natasha but nothing apart from that.
Different Forms of the Hulk
The Hulk has appeared for a very long time in Marvel Universe. During several issues of his comics, he has taken on different forms. The following list is a different persona of Bruce Banner, The Hulk.
- Immortal Hulk
- Professor Hulk
- Grey Hulk
- Spider Hulk
And, the strongest Marvel superhero has got a huge number of archenemies too. Let's look at which antagonists, The Hulk has fought to date.
Hulk's Villains in Comics and Movies
- Glen Talbot
- Red Hulk
- Absorbing Man
- Grey Gargoyle
- Maestro Hulk
One of the epic battles that Marvel fans have witnessed is between Hulk and the mad Titan.
Hulk vs Thanos
We have already seen Hulk go against Thanos in MCU. Hulk is one of the strongest Avengers. But when he came across Thanos for the first time, he got defeated in a bad way.
Hulk got beat in such a bad way. After that, Bruce Banner's alter ego even denied transforming back into the green monster again. Even Bruce had to fight villains not transforming into The Hulk. Though we didn't get Hulk vs Thanos in "Avengers: Endgame". But, Professor Hulk was the one to bring all the characters back to life from Thanos' snap in Avengers: Infinity War. And, Hulk has not got into a fight with the villains, but with his fellow Avengers as well. Hulk has been in a feud with Tony Stark's Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor & more. This left us with one question.
Who is stronger, Thor or Hulk?
The debate of who is stronger between Thor and Hulk will never end. Both of them have their own unique powers. While Thor has used his powers in several ways, Hulk has done the same as well.
On a few occasions, Hulk got portrayed as stronger but on other occasions, Thor got portrayed as a stronger character. It is not sure whether we will see these two characters feud in the future. But the debate of the stronger one between the god of thunder and Hulk will always remain unanswered. What's more? Yes, Hulk has been in a fight with X-Men too. So.
Will we see Hulk go against Wolverine in the future?
Both of the characters are iconic heroes of the Marvel Universe. MCU has already started teasing the introduction of mutants. So it is only a matter of time before Wolverine will make his appearance in MCU as well.
In Marvel Comics, we have already seen Wolverine go against Hulk. Since the arrival of Wolverine and the mutants is just a matter of time away, no doubt we will see Wolverine and Hulk in the same scene. And, what about a Marvel and DC crossover? Fans have always been obsessed about the strongest superheroes of Marvel and DC taking on each other.
What about Hulk vs Superman?
We have already been introduced to Amalgam Universe in the comics. It is a timeline where Marvel and DC characters co-exist in the same universe.
We hope that Marvel and DC agree to develop a movie just like the comics. Then our dreams to see different characters go against each other will come true. Among all the characters, Hulk vs Superman will be worth watching.
Both of them are the strongest characters in their respective universe. But who will win if Hulk goes against Superman?
