Ever since the Hulk officially joined Thor: Ragnarok, desperate fans have hoped that the film will in some way be adapting the Planet Hulk storyline. This year's San Diego Comic-Con seems to have granted them their wish, by providing a first look at the Hulk's armour in the movie.
The saga of whether or not Mark Ruffalo would be joining almost the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Civil War has been long and tumultuous. First, Robert Downey Jr. apparently asked Ruffalo to be in on the fun. Then it was happening. Then it wasn't — and yet rumours persisted. Turns out there was some truth to them though.
There have been rumours that Marvel Studios has been going to turn Greg Pak's hit comic saga Planet Hulk into a movie for years. It's also been tied to Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, and now Thor: Ragnorak, too. But why are people obsessed with Planet Hulk getting a movie, when there are other, more appropriate Hulk stories available?
As Marvel's most wantonly destructive character, there's only one feature kids are really looking for when they ask their parents for a Hulk toy. It has to smash stuff, and it has to smash stuff repeatedly until they get tired of smashing stuff. It's a simple list of demands, and JAKKS Pacific has met every one of them with its new, and aptly-named, RC Hulk Smash.
With the Avengers sequel creeping closer and closer to its release date, it was only a matter of time before the talented artists at Hot Toys finally gave us a Hulk figure to top all other Hulk figures. With this new 17-inch tall version of an angry Bruce Banner they have certainly delivered, and with more detailed chest hair than we've ever seen on an action figure before.
If you've never seen or heard of the Selk'bag wearable sleeping bags before, you're getting up to speed at the perfect time. You can think of them as a one-piece pajama for adults except with the same amount of insulation you'd find in a sleeping bag, so they will keep you extra warm at night. And now they're available in four Marvel-themed versions letting you seed some truly memorable dreams.
Even while it is all science-fiction, there are science mechanisms that can explain some superheroes. Stanford University biologist Sebastian Alvarado talks about the genetic transformations that made the Incredible Hulk and Captain America acquire their trademark superpowers.
Industrial Light and Magic has been in the visual effects game since the original Star Wars. And if you need any further proof that they're still one of the top FX shops on the planet, here's another look at the work they did to bring the Hulk to life in The Avengers.
newVideoPlayer("hulkstark_gizmodo.flv", 494, 391,""); HRRMMMM. WHAT IS THIS AGAIN? ANOTHER NEW HULK TV TRAILER!? HULK IS TIRED! THIS MOVIE WILL SUCK! Or maybe not, Hulk see again... hrrmmm. Bright light. Door. Chairs. HULK DON'T LIKE GENERAL ROSS! PUNY ROSS AND HIS PUNY TANKS! Oh! WAIT! IS THAT TONY STARK? HULK LIKES TONY STARK AND HIS GREEN MARTINI COCKTAILS AND HIS LITTLE PRETZELS AND RITZ COOKIES! Maybe this movie will not suck after all.
Indiana Jones may be the current talk of the town, but it's not the only big summer blockbuster worth discussing right now. With Iron Man already out, and Wall-E, The Dark Knight and The Incredible Hulk still to come, there's plenty of movie goodness still to be had. Speed Racer ?...let's not go there.
newVideoPlayer("Hulk_Gloves.flv", 475, 356,""); Clearly super-hero season is full on at this point, and the product is already in stores. Hasbro sent us two pairs of US$20 Hulk Smash electronic action-sensitive talking fists. These are different from the old ones because a) they're made by Hasbro, not Toy Biz b) are cloth, not foam and c) have one speaker, not two. We still have to wait a little over a month for the Hulk movie, though, provided Ed Norton doesn't chain himself to the outgoing prints to keep the world from seeing it. (Yep, that slow-mo comes from the beloved Casio EX-F1.)
Remember "Operation," that buzzing fishing-for-organs game we played with as kids? Well, Hulk fans will soon be able to dig around inside their hero with a pair of electrified tweezers too, when Hasbro brings out their Hulk-themed version. Clumsy surgical action will make his eyes glow green and he'll howl apparently. What do you think of that, Hulk? HULK WARN YOU, ANESTHETIC BETTER BE REAL STRONG!
With the new movie on its way to theatres, this seemed like the perfect time to look at some seriously Hulk-sized gadgets. Or, more specifically, everyday items that have been bigified way past the point of absurdity. I can almost hear the entire state of Texas flipping out. galleryPost('giantgadgets', 10, '');
newVideoPlayer("hulk_defamer.flv", 475, 376,""); WHAT IS THIS? HULK NEW MOVIE TRAILER? OK, let's see... Uhmmm... Not bad. Hulk likes Ed Norton. BUT HULK HATES BANNER! BANNER IS A PUN*oh, there's Liv. Mmmm... HULK LOVES LIV! OK. More things. Yoga? Wait, WHAT'S THIS PUNY ZEN STUFF! AND WHY BANNER FALLS FROM HELICOPTER!? WHAT? HULK DOESN'T HAVE THAT HIPPIE HAIR! HULK DOESN'T LIKE STUPID TRAILER! WHO DO THEY THINK HULK IS? RINGO STARR? UHMMM... Hulk likes Ringo though. He's nice. And sings like Kermit. And Kermit is green. AND HULK LIKES GREEN! BUT WHO IS THIS BIG GUY? HULK IS CONFUSED! MAYBE HE LIKES TRAILER AFTER ALL! What do you think?
HULK LIKES TO SAVE MONEY! MONEY IS GREEN! HULK IS GREEN! HULK LIKES GREEN! YOU KNOW KERMIT? GREAT FRIEND OF HULK! PUNY BANNER DOESN'T SAVE MONEY! HE SPENDS IT ALL ON NEW PANTS! LIKE JASON CHEN! HULK DOESN'T LIKE PUNY BANNER! HMMMM, HULK LIKES JASON CHEN THOUGH! EXCEPT WHEN HE WEARS BATMAN PYJAMAS! BUT HULK WILL GIVE HIM THIS HULK MONEY BANK ANYWAY! (Editor's Note: it is going to be released at Toy Fair 2008, as merchandising for the next Edward Norton's Hulk movie which, sadly, won't include Lou Ferrigno. — JD) WHO IS TALKING? WHO IS LOU FERRIGNO? WHO IS THE EDITOR? HULK HATES EDITOR! HE SPENDS ALL MONEY IN DRINKS AND GOING OUT! HULK SMASHES EDITOR!
