Ant-Man Has An Incredible Hulk Movie & Stan Lee Easter Egg

Filming has just started and already it is learned the Ant-Man movie will contain a Easter Egg for both the Incredible Hulk movie and Stan Lee.

The 2008 Incredible Hulk movie saw Stan Lee drink one of the contaminated green drinks (see below).

Now a set image from Ant-Man shows Paul Rudd walking by a poster with the drinks.

Hulk’s Buddy Korg Featured In New Thor 2 Trailer

I recall coming out of Comic-Con the description for the Thor 2 footage included mention that Thor smashed a rock giant to pieces.

Now we all get to see that ourselves in the latest Thor 2 trailer, but comic books fans should recognize that rock giant to be a member of the Stone Men of Saturn aka the Kronans.

Fans of the Incredible Hulk will recognize Korg, a member of the War Bound, from Greg Pak’s stellar run on the series; especially from the Planet Hulk and World War Hulk days.

What’s cool about Korg is that he was inspired by Thor’s origin and was also retconned into an earlier issue of Hulk where he was a part of the stone creatures Thor fought back in a 1963 issue of Journey Into Mystery.

Obviously this might not be “The Korg,” but a close relative nonetheless.

Nice Easter Egg!

Here’s a shot of “Korg” from the Thor 2 trailer:

Cool Spawn #226 “Wolverine Vs. Hulk #340” Homage Cover By Todd McFarlane

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:3262:]]

When I first started reading and collecting comic books, my brother brought home an issue of the Incredible Hulk from school — and the Hulk was gray!

Blew my mind.

From there I went on to the local comic shop and bought issues of Hulk, Iron Man, Quasar etc.

As I read more on the gray Hulk, this eventually led me to Wolverine, as well as Todd McFarlane, who right around the time was drawing Spider-Man.

I remember coming across Todd McFarlane’s Incredible Hulk #340 cover — and was simply awestruck. Of course back then, it was a pretty hot comic and out of my league, so saving my lunch money each day would have taken a couple months and was out of the question.

Now McFarlane is back drawing Hulk Vs. Wolverine – of sorts –  with the following December cover of Spawn #226, which is a tribute/homage/parody to that classic cover.

We see the Violator as Wolverine with Spawn as the Gray Hulk.

Check it out, Todd tweeted the following. Brings back some good memories.

Witness the early days of Wynn’s rise to power, and the unbridled ambition that made him one of the most powerful men on the planet as “DE-PROGRAMMED” continues with this special two-part chapter entitled, “The Life and Death of Jason Wynn!”

New Hulk Movie After Avengers 2; Planet Hulk? Kevin Feige Doesn’t Rule It Out

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:3237:]]

Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige has been making the rounds as of late with the upcoming The Avengers Blu-Ray DVD that gets released on September 25th.

Last time, Kevin Feige mentioned the future plans for Thanos in their upcoming slate of movies, which includes the Guardians of the Galaxy movie and The Avengers 2, something that Cosmic Book News revealed exclusively.

This time, Kevin Feige mentions Marvel’s future plans for the Hulk.

As we saw in The Avengers movie, the Hulk arguably stole the show. The Hulk was thought by a majority to be represented quite well in The Avengers, and sure enough, soon after, movie fans began inquiring about a new Hulk movie; however, it’s been stated on more than one occasion that there are really no plans for another.

Until now.

Speaking with MTV, Kevin Feige says that they wouldn’t be doing anything with the Green Goliath until after The Avengers 2. MTV notes that seeing how Marvel Studios is going in a more cosmic direction, would Greg Pak’s epic Hulk story from the Marvel Comics, “Planet Hulk,” be considered?

“I don’t think there’s a lot that we couldn’t do someday, as the cinematic universe continues to grow and expand and get as big as the comic book universe,” Feige told MTV. ” ‘Planet Hulk’ is a cool story. ‘World War Hulk’ is a cool story.”

“Do I think Hulk can carry a movie and be as entertaining as he was in ‘Avengers’?” Feige continued. “I do believe that. I do believe he absolutely could. We certainly are not even going to attempt that until ‘Avengers 2.’ So there’s a lot of time to think about it.”

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:3238:]]”Planet Hulk” featured the Incredible Hulk being shunned by the members of “Illuminati,” made up of members of both the Avengers as well as X-Men. Hulk was tricked into space where he was exiled to Planet Skaar, a barbarian-like planet ruled by the Red King. There, the Hulk married and had a son, while at the same time having both saved and destroyed the planet. Eventually the Hulk, Green Scar, makes his way back to Earth where he takes his revenge against the Illuminati in “World War Hulk,” featuring – arguably – the most powerful version of the Hulk to date.

Both great stories and two of my favorites.

In 2010, Marvel released an animated version of “Planet Hulk,” which saw the Silver Surfer replaced by Beta Ray Bill. As we all know, Fox Studios owns the movie rights to Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer, could the animated “Planet Hulk” featuring Beta Ray Bill (will Bill appear in Thor 2?) have been a primer for a “Planet Hulk” movie after The Avengers 2?

The Avengers 2 assembles May 1, 2015 with Iron Man 3 on May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, and the Guardians of the Galaxy movie on August 1, 2014.

Head on over to the Cosmic Book News The Avengers Movie Hub for more news, images and trailers.

Dale Keown Draws An Awesome Maestro in “A Plus X” Featuring Hulk and Wolverine

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:3086:]]

CBR gets the first look at Dale Keown’s art from A+X #1 that features Wolverine and the Hulk, written by Jeph Loeb. The series features an X-Man and an Avenger team teaming up. The first issue also sees Captain American and Cable by Dan Slott and Ron Garney.

In Dale Keown’s pics below we see the Maestro taking on the Hulk! Old Man Logan is present as well to take on the little whippersnappers!

This brings back the glory years of Peter David and Dale Keown’s Incredible Hulk run from the 90s, probably my all-time favorite Hulk arc. There, we saw the debut of the Maestro with Future Imperfect written by PAD with art by George Perez. The Hulk was recruited to battle his future self who had become an evil despot — and also the last super powered being on Earth! Remember the double page spread with all the heroes’ weapons and artifacts – Rick Jones’ trophy room – how cool was that?

I remember feel uber disappointed when Keown left the book as the very next issue featured Banner Hulk taking on the Juggernaut — something I wanted to see from Dale Keown. However, what we ended with wasn’t at all bad with Gary Frank!

Here’s Keown’s art from A+X #1, head on over to CBR for more.

Marvel NOW! Incredible Hulk Creative Team Announced: Mark Waid and Leinil Francis Yu

Marvel Cancels 9 Titles Including Fantastic Four, FF, Incredible Hulk, New Mutants and more

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:2184:]]Marvel will be cancelling nine titles as of this coming October as Marvel Now! debuts with Rick Remender and John Cassaday’s Uncanny Avengers #1.

And those nine titles are: Captain America, Fantastic Four, FF, Incredible Hulk, Invincible Iron Man, New Mutants, The Mighty Thor, Uncanny X-Men and X-Men Legacy.

It really comes to no surprise for some of these titles as they will obviously be relaunched.

Jonathan Hickman is off both Fantastic Four and FF as of October and moving on to the Avengers books. I believe it was stated that Matt Fraction is taking on the Marvel Now! Fantastic Four.

Ed Brubaker is leaving Captain America, which will certainly see a reboot.

Incredible Hulk was just relaunched less than a year ago or so with Jason Aaron onboard. Will we see another relaunch sometime in 2013? Probably.

We see DnA’s New Mutants is getting cancelled. With it looking like Marvel Cosmic is getting taken over by Jeph Loeb and Brian Michael Bendis, Marvel Cosmic fans are certainly hoping DnA are involved in some capacity. I know I am.

Fraction was on both Thor and Iron Man, two titles that will most likely be relaunched as well.

And we know Bendis is taking on the All-New X-Men.

Expect to hear more from this week’s San Diego Comic Con.

Review: Incredible Hulk #9

I have always loved the Hulk and his conflict with Bruce Banner – in all its diverse and sometimes crazy interpretations. But the Hulk having to remain mad rather than calming down or sacrificing himself to an insane Banner is wild, and scribe Jason Aaron deserves kudos for it.

It certainly is of a different ilk to keep the green goliath mad, but in today’s world of constant disaster how difficult can that be? Well, Aaron is showing us, and in some of the most inconceivable places in the Marvel U.

This time around the Hulk is near one of the most isolated spots of Namor’s Atlantis and struggling with worries even Banner may not be able to comprehend, all the time trying to stay angry.

The treat of the issue is of course the art of Pasqual Ferry as Big Green faces a gigantic squid monster! Now these type of battles are why I buy books like this, just for the fun. It would be nice if we could settle on one artist, though, guys? Ferry would be fine by me.

All in all, not a bad issue as Aaron’s new slant on the Hulk continues. But my heart will always want something akin to John Byrne’s “Hulk Smash!” run on the book. Little else satisfies so much.

The Avengers (2012): Ruffalo vs. Norton Vs. Bana Hulks! Which is better?

With the latest The Avengers trailer finally giving us a good look at Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, how about pitting each of the green goliath’s against one another?

Which do you like better?!

Obviously with the previous two Hulk movies being almost 4 and 10 years behind The Avengers, there is going to be some quality differences due to advancement in technology.

However, I’m still kinda digging the Eric Bana version over Ed Norton’s.

Two Hulk pics from The Avengers:
