A new rumour has surfaced from We Are Wakanda (via MCU Exchange), hinting that Bruce Banner may not be the only rage monster populating the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, another Hulk could be joining him as early as Captain America: Civil War next year.
MCU Exchange’s own sources claim that that other Hulk is none other than Red Hulk, the monstrous alter-ego of General Thunderbolt Ross. We know that The Incredible Hulk actor William Hurt will be returning as Ross for Captain America: Civil War, and someone close to the production has reportedly reached out and informed MCU Exchange that he does in fact Hulk out in the film, and engage in a fight with Hulk that “is supposed to rival the Hulkbuster fight from Age of Ultron.”
Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
Captain America: Civil War is set for release on April 29th 2016 in the UK and May 6th 2016 in the States, with Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) directing a cast that includes Marvel Cinematic Universe veterans Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany (The Vision), Don Cheadle (James Rhondes/War Machine), Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter) and Frank Grillo (Brock Rumlow/Crossbones) and William Hurt (General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross) alongside new additions Chadwick Boseman (Get on Up) as T’Challa/Black Panther, Daniel Bruhl (Rush) as Baron Zemo, and Martin Freeman (The Hobbit) in an as-yet-unrevealed role.
