Since the early days of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one of the biggest mysteries was the lack of sequels for 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. Since then it has been infamously reported that Marvel shared the rights to certain characters such as Namor and The Hulk with Universal Pictures. A solo Hulk or Namor movie could always be produced, yet Universal would likely distribute and take in that revenue. This resulted in The Hulk and his character progression being told across multiple supporting roles in films like Thor: Ragnarok.
According to MCU Cosmic, a site that’s built a solid hit-record when it comes to scoops, they’ve heard from a source that Marvel now has sole distribution rights to characters previously shared with Universal. All things considered, this is great news! Hopefully this leads the way to a Mark Ruffalo solo adventure, whether it’s on Disney+ or in theaters. Personally, I’d love to see Disney and Marvel Studios produce a solo series focused on the time before Avengers: Endgame when Banner was in the Gamma Lab. This was briefly touched on during the film but more could always be explored.
What do you think of Marvel Studios finally getting the full rights to The Hulk? Leave your comments down below and feel free to follow me at @JBaldera27 on Twitter!
