Mark Ruffalo is eagerly waiting for Hulk’s rematch against Thanos after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Josh Brolin’s main villain for the MCU made an official debut at a strong first sequence in Infinity War. The film opened with the Mad Titan in 2018, and its sluts attacked the refugee ship of the Asgardians, killing half the people aboard as well as Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Heimdall (Idris Elba). When he easily defeated the raging green monster in a hand-to-hand battle, however, fans first came up with an idea of how powerful he is.
The Hulk survived the entire ordeal, due partly to Heimdall’s ability to send him back on Earth. Bruce Banner played the role of a herald as he arrived at the Sanctum Sanctorum-informing his comrades about the imminent arrival of Thanos. But beyond that, he was no longer very useful because he could not turn himself again and again into the Hulk, which would have been most helpful during the fiasco. It wasn’t until Endgame that viewers would see the green-rage beast again, but this time with their human alter-ego consciousness.
Hulk Vs. Thanos
There was so much excitement to a retrofit from Hulk-Thanos coming to Endgame because a few marketing things were kissing about it. But film co-writer Stephen McFeely said they wanted another fight between the two characters not to contradict Hulk’s intellectual development.
While the original green rage monster is all about a brutal fight, the current intellectual iteration of the character is more realistic. This sort of thing makes sense, yet it was awesome to see Hulk get another chance to beat the Mad Titan.
Return Of Hulk And Thanos
Like Ruffalo, many fans are still struggling to win a return of Hulk-Thanos at Avengers: Endgame; forget that Tony Stark / Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) is now supposedly dead, surrender his life to kill him and his sisters once and for all. With the idea of time travel and the multiverse in the MCU, this can happen in several ways if Marvel Studios desire it.
On that note, though, it is worth noting that Smart Hulk’s future in the franchise is still uncertain. As one of the Avengers’ few founding heroes, there is little news on what lies ahead for him. The actor recently revealed that in early talks, he would take over the role in the next Disney+ show, She-Hulk.
