'INCREDIBLE HULK 2' Coming In 2015?

The Avengers will end up becoming Marvel's biggest hit as it made $178.4 million in 39 international markets over the weekend. These numbers don't even include huge markets like North America, Russia, China and Japan which will get the film this Friday. One of the biggest wins of the film was finally a great interpretation of both Dr. Bruce Banner and The Hulk played by Mark Ruffalo. Fans of the green hero and Avengers have been curious when we could expect a new Hulk film. There was talk from both Ruffalo and Kevin Feige that there were talks about a new film. Leading Mark to let slip that he wanted to get Joss Whedon involved.

Now word from Marvel's Paul Gitter in a new Forbes interview revealing that along with a new TV series on ABC produced by Guillermo del Toro (who is also directing the pilot) we could be seeing a new film in 2015. Having a new live-action TV series should gather up a new solid fanbase not to mention Hulk's appearance in the Disney cartoon series.

"If Hulk’s successful turnaround continues, Gitter says Marvel “will spin him off to a stand-alone program next year,” supported by a big budget franchise movie in 2015."

I wouldn't be shocked to see Guillermo's (Hellboy) name on the list of possible directors when it finally moves forward. Del Toro has a tendency to switch up his projects on the spot. He went from The Hobbit to Mountains of Madness to settle on Pacific Rim. A project that wasn't even in his large waiting-list of films in development. He'll be directing the pilot for the Hulk television series previously working with Marvel on Blade 2 and had been lined up for a Doctor Strange film.

So we very well could end up getting Incredible Hulk 2 in 2015. Will it be Banner working for SHIELD, still on the run or a different direction like with Planet Hulk? Seeing Hulk facing off cosmic creatures that can give him a run for his money would be my personal choice. However, considering how baldy John Carter did Disney might be scared off to a film like that. I wouldn't be shocked to see the series developing a story that could lead into the new film.
