Solo ‘HULK’ movie following ‘AVENGERS 2’ says Lou Ferrigno
If the former body and current voice of the Hulk is to be believed, the Irradiated Fucker is soon going to be privileged enough to have his own flick. More than one person on the interwebs has already questioned just how tuned in Lou Ferrigno is to Marvel Movie News, but let’s indulge the rumor anyways.
Despite the successful run on TV screens in the late ’70s and early ’80s, the Hulk has proven to be a tough sell on the big screen, with no less than three actors playing Bruce Banner in less than a decade and Marvel itself at the helm of the last two iterations. While last spring came word from the lastest Banner himself, Mark Ruffalo, that there were “no plans for a stand alone,” leave it to the most iconic Hulk of them all to start the rumor mill anew.
During an interview for a radio station in Minnesota (via Latino-Review), Lou Ferrigno revealed that there are indeed plans for a stand alone Hulk adventure, saying “Now because [Hulk] saved the day [in the first ‘Avengers’] they’re making another solo Hulk movie after the second Avengers comes out.” Although Ferrigno seems awfully sure he has the legit scoop, we’re going to take it with a grain of salt since he’s said this kind of thing before, and the odds of the comics giant-turned-movie studio keeping an aging TV star abreast of their movies in development seem fairly slim.
