Perhaps, if we’ve ever seen a tired superhero it has been our Incredible Hulk.
The term ‘tired superhero’ isn’t exactly a commonly used or even understood term but somewhere around 2008 was where we got ourselves familiarised by it. In MCU’s fourth phase comes a lot of new characters and shows and series to watch and with that our hearts are beating a little faster and we’re wondering, what is to happen to our favourite superhero?
- Bruce Banner aka Incredible Hulk To Not Be Incredible Anymore?
- Everything We Know About She-Hulk
- An Ode To Hulk The Underdog Hero
Well, it might have been revealed what they have in store for our Incredible Hulk and you’re not going to like it.
Bruce Banner aka Incredible Hulk To Not Be Incredible Anymore?
Apparently, Marvel Executives are currently planning to kill off Bruce Banner in the upcoming Disney Plus series She-Hulk by none other than his comic book nemesis Red Hulk.
Mark Ruffalo aka Incredible Hulk had some time earlier announced his involvement in the series but had not mentioned to what extent we would see him in the show. Which makes sense now if he didn’t know his fate himself. But not so quickly! Apparently, we won’t be saying goodbye to Hulk in the very first season.
The end might come somewhere in the later seasons when Hulk is trying to protect Jennifer from his nemesis Red-Hulk.(We really didn’t have any doubt believing Bruce is a nice guy but this?)
The highly anticipated Disney+ series was revealed last year, one among a number of other original programming series all to be available on Disney+.
Everything We Know About She-Hulk
The plot of She-Hulk series is still scarce to our knowledge but if it follows the comics, the story of She-Hulk follows the life of Jennifer Walters who is a successful lawyer. But her life is turned upside down when she suffers a horrible accident and only the blood of her Uncle Bruce can save her which results in her becoming a female version of Hulk i.e., She-Hulk.
Of course, adopting the iconic green suit isn’t anyone’s cup of tea and only by incredible strength and power she is able to manage her temper.
There is an on-going search for the lead role to cast She-Hulk. And fans of the franchise let on a strong inclination towards Brooklyn Nine Nine’s Stephanie Beatriz to play the part. Although, since then she has been ruled out of the part. (Rosa would have killed it)
And the search is still on. Ladies?
An Ode To Hulk The Underdog Hero
I think what people forget to realise a lot of time is that the real superhero in these series is not Hulk but Bruce Banner himself. Bruce Banner is a hero because he has put himself in danger and helped people while risking exposing his identity as Hulk. Other times, he’s faced the villain by being the Hulk and fight for the greater good.
What stands between Hulk and Hulk destroying the world is Bruce Banner himself with an astounding level of will power and goodness in his heart. And anyone fighting for the good of the world by not being who they truly are, that’s a hero we didn’t think we deserved.
She-Hulk will presumably have to go through these same ordeal and if she loses Uncle Bruce in the process one can only imagine the problems lying ahead.
In any case, while the excitement of the show keeps building and our guess game keeps rising, fans will have a heart breaking moment saying goodbye to their beloved Incredible Hulk. We’re just not ready, Bruce.
What do you think? Is this really true? Are you ready to say goodbye to Hulk? Let us know in the comments below!
