Incredible Hulk Almost Derails the McU: Journey to Infinity War Part 2

Marvel's early days are somewhat strange. It's clear that the people behind-the-scenes knew that these movies could all be connected someday. And they knew that there was something bigger they were building toward. While it seems like they mostly figured that out by Iron Man 2, it's really The Incredible Hulk that winds up being the forgotten child and the biggest casualty of the early stages of this grand experiment. That said, for all of the vocalization from the fanbase wanting a Hulk solo movie, we have one in the McU already. It just has Edward Norton instead of Mark Ruffalo in it.

As far as revisiting all of these McU movies leading up to Avengers: Infinity War, I was incredibly curious about taking another look at The Incredible Hulk. I remember seeing this movie when it first came out and, though I haven't watched it in quite some time,

The Atom Handled Cancellation in the Coolest Way Imaginable

Knowledge Waits is a feature where I just share some bit of comic book history that interests me. Today, we see the clever way the end of the Atom’s late 1980s comic book was reflected in the corner boxes of the series!

After I did an article on how the corner boxes of The Incredible Hulk reflected how the Hulk was slowly losing control of his intelligence (this was during Bill Mantlo’s run when the Hulk regained the intelligence of Bruce Banner for a while) and turning back into a savage Hulk (each issue would show the Hulk getting more and more crazy, as he tears off his lab coat and becomes the savage Hulk again), reader Neil R. wrote in to note how the final few issues of The Power of the Atom did the same thing in the late 1980s.

Marvel Don't Miss Declares Infinity War Star Chris Evans

Marvel Don't Miss Declares Infinity War Star Chris Evans
Chris Evans has taken the hype for Infinity War up a notch while appearing at Ace Comic-Con in Arizona over the weekend. The actor declared that Marvel "doesn't miss" when they put out a new project, which is for the most part, true. Out of the 17 interconnected movies that make up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, only 2 have come in with some mediocre reviews, including The Incredible Hulk and Thor: The Dark World. Even then, all of Marvel's movies have had Fresh ratings on the movie review site Rotten Tomatoes.

Chris Evans appeared at Ace Comic-Con with Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier) and Anthony Mackie (The Falcon) to discuss all things Marvel over the weekend, which led to talk of the upcoming movies Infinity War and Avengers 4, which have fans super hyped up, but also cautiously optimistic. There's a lot of pressure to deliver something to the fans that have

Could Avengers: Infinity War Signal The Return Of Liv Tyler As Betty Ross?

Not for the first time, Liv Tyler has been tipped for a role in Avengers: Infinity War.

As any Marvel fan will tell you, the actress originally played the part of Betty Ross, gamma scientist and Bruce Banner’s ex-girlfriend, in The Incredible Hulk, which became the second instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Iron Man.

That means Louis Leterrier’s oft-forgotten spinoff is still considered canon among Marvel creators, so the return of Betty Ross isn’t exactly off the table. And that’s exactly what The Scottish Daily (via ComicBook.com) predicts in its breakdown of Infinity War‘s colossal production. Mind you, just because Liv Tyler’s name is mentioned doesn’t necessarily mean that her McU character is a shoo-in for the forthcoming blockbuster, so until we hear something official from Marvel, take this one with a pinch of salt.

Yes, Infinity War is said

Avengers Director Says that “Superheroes Should Feel Pain”

Everyone grew up with a fixation on one superhero or another. With some of us, we were enamored with Superman, and others it was Batman. With me, it was the Black Panther and The Incredible Hulk. Yes, I was a Superman fan and Batman was always on my radar. I even had somewhat of an infinity with Isis and Thor, but I could relate to the Black Panther and the Hulk was unstoppable. I bring these up because we are preparing for the release of Avengers: Infinity War, which will be directed by brothers Joe and Anthony Russo. I mentioned

Aunt May's Big Spider-Man: Homecoming Scene Was Planned for Years

Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming returned the web-slinger to his former box office glory, earning $334.2 million domestic (fifth highest this year) and $880.1 million worldwide (fourth highest this year), from a $180 million budget. This highly-anticipated movie brought Peter Parker (Tom Holland) back to high school, and ended on quite the surprising, and iconic note. A Redditor recently unearthed a 2008 quote from Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, which reveals that he had been planning on putting this scene on the big screen for at least 10 years, possibly much longer. If you still haven't seen Spider-Man: Homecoming yet, there will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

When Marvel Studios finally landed a shared-rights deal with Sony Pictures for the Spider-Man character, it was rumored early on that Marvel Studios was starting to plan a new trilogy that will entirely be set in Peter Parker's high school years, with

Ranking The Marvel Cinematic Universe (2017 Edition)

The Flickering Myth writing staff rank the Marvel Cinematic Universe for 2017…

2017 saw three new releases in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok – as well as our first looks at next year’s Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War. As is tradition, we here at Flickering Myth polled our writers and asked them to rank the McU from best to worst. James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy has won the poll the last two years [here and here], but can it make it three years on top?

As a change from last year, we are no longer counting the TV or Netflix shows. It was fun when we tried it last year, but it got too messy and there have been so many new additions this year that it’s hard to keep track of everything! Plus, it means we don’t have

Epic New Poster Puts Mark Ruffalo In The Incredible Hulk Movie

Back in 2003, before the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a thing, award winning director Ang Lee delivered to us Hulk, starring Eric Bana as Bruce Banner. The film presented a story that focused on Banner’s relationship with Betty Ross (played by Jennifer Connelly), who is indeed a significant love interest for the scientist in the source material. She’s also the daughter of General Ross – Banner’s enemy.

Then, came the McU, and director Louis Leterrier delivered a variation on the relationship theme again. This time, Edward Norton played the scientist, while Liv Tyler filled the role of Betty in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. Like in the last movie, her father was still chasing the titular hero but this time, he did so using Abomination, a Hulk-like character from the comics and one of his arch-enemies.

After that film, however, Mark Ruffalo finally stepped in, replacing Norton and going on

If You Already Want a Sequel to Black Panther, Read This

  • BuzzSugar
Since 2008, Marvel Studios has been churning out big-budget blockbusters about various superheroes at a breakneck pace. The films range from large ensemble casts like The Avengers to stand-alone single-character films like Iron Man and Thor. The next Marvel superhero to appear on the big screen solo is Black Panther, picking up after the events of Captain America: Civil War. But will there be a sequel? Let's look at what we know about the film: Chadwick Boseman is set to reprise the title role that he brought to life in Civil War. In the new film, T'Challa (aka Black Panther) returns to his home country of Wakanda (a fictional African country), only to be dragged back into the worldwide power struggle when enemies conspire to bring down his kingdom.

Fantastic Four may not be part of the Disney/Fox deal

As The Walt Disney Company closes in on its acquisition of 20th Century Fox, it looks increasingly likely that Marvel Studios will soon have the X-Men at its disposal. This is of course great news for fans hoping to see all of the publisher’s roster of superheroes under the same roof (and same shared universe), although it appears that we may still have one omission.

According to Slash Film, there’s some confusion as to whether the Fantastic Four will fall under the deal, given that the production rights to Marvel’s First Family actually belong to Constantin Film, rather than Fox itself.

The German production company first acquired the rights to the Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer back in 1986, producing the unreleased low-budget 1994 movie in order to hold onto said rights before forming a partnership with Fox in 1999 which ultimately led to Tim Story’s two Fantastic Four movies,

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Gets An Awesome Animated Remake

After months of waiting, the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War hit the web last week and instantly went viral, breaking records to become the most-watched preview ever. Since then, fans have got creative with some nifty recreations of the teaser. One individual imagined what a Disneyfied take on the film would be like, for instance, and today, another has put together an awesome shot-for-shot recreation which uses clips from Marvel’s animated TV universe from the 1990s in place of the familiar McU stars.

It’s an impressive piece of work from YouTube user Darth Blender, with some shots being pretty uncanny matches for the moments from the live-action action trailer. It also offers a welcome hit of nostalgia for longtime Marvel lovers who adored these cartoons when they were kids. Though they weren’t exactly the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the House of Ideas’ many animated shows from the

Infinity War Trailer Gets a 90s Animated Makeover and It's Awesome

Infinity War Trailer Gets a 90s Animated Makeover and It's Awesome
Christmas came early for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe when the Russo Brothers dropped the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War late last week. The trailer instantly became the most viewed trailer in YouTube history, smashing records for a single 24-hour period with over 230 million views and over 1 million likes. The previous record holder was Andres Muschietti's big screen adaptation of Stephen King's It at 190 million views in 24 hours. Needless to say, the trailer release was kind of a big deal and now it has been given the ultimate tribute: a 90s-animated version of the trailer made from the Marvel cartoons of the 1990s and it's awesome.

The 1990s gave us successful Marvel cartoons like X-Men: The Animated Series and Spider-Man: The Animated Series. In addition, there were a lot of somewhat less popular, but still successful, Marvel animated shows from this fertile period to draw from, including Iron Man,

The Avengers And The Incredible Hulk Easter Eggs Spotted In The Punisher

The Marvel/Netflix series have always been grittier and more mature than the McU movies, but The Punisher pushes the boundaries more than the previous five shows released on the streaming service. The other Defenders were even forbidden from taking part in it in order to keep its ultra-violent tone distinct and unique. All that said, it is still connected to the wider Marvel universe and even featured a few welcome easter eggs for fans to pick up on.

For instance, in episode 9 – “Front Towards Enemy” – Karen Page receives a threatening letter from terrorist Lewis Wilson while in her office at the New York Bulletin. If you draw your attention slightly to the left, you’ll see a couple of interesting framed front pages of the paper.

Check them out in the image below:

DC Extended Universe Movies Ranked from Worst to Best

Last weekend saw the release of Justice League, which brings the total of films in the DC Extended Universe (Dceu) to five. While that may seem like too few to rank, keep in mind that if Warner Bros. keeps on pace with production, that number will grow. The Dceu has had a rough start, but keep in mind that the McU didn’t have a smooth liftoff. Iron Man was fantastic, but then they had to figure out The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man 2. The Dceu has generated its fair share of controversy, but to its credit, it’s …

Kenneth Branagh discusses the pressure on the first Thor movie

Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok has come in for heaps of praise for its change in direction, taking the Thor franchise fully into the realm of cosmic comedy. However, it’s easy to forget now that, at the time of its release, the first Thor movie also marked a huge tonal shift for the fledgling Marvel Cinematic Universe, introducing cosmic elements after the Earth-based adventures of Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk.

During an interview with Uproxx to promote his latest film Murder on the Orient Express, Thor director Kenneth Branagh spoke about the pressure on the first movie:

“Remember, there were only two pictures in the Marvel Universe. Iron Man, genius, the first one. Hulk hadn’t worked as they’d hoped. And then number three, it was sink or swim before Captain America and then suddenly, oh, it was fine after that. No question that Kevin Feige used to say to me,
