2/2/15 Marvel News Mash-Up (Grey Hulk, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars)
Will We See A ‘Grey Hulk’ In ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron?
This first started when an image of the ‘Savage Grey Hulk’ Funco Pop vinyl figure was leaked online as a Hot Topic exclusive figure. What is interesting is the redness around his eyes is similar to the scene in the newest trailer suggesting that he is being controlled by Scarlet Witch.
In the very first issue of the Incredible Hulk, The Hulk was grey and Stan Lee had always intended for him to be grey. But do to problems with the grey ink and how it did not blend properly with the rest of the colors in the comics, Marvel felt it was best to change his color to green. This was explained by saying that the Grey Hulk persona and the Green Hulk persona are battling in Bruce Banner’s sub-conscious. Due to his superior strength, Green Hulk aka Savage Hulk, won most of the time thus showing the Savage Hulk persona more often.
So could this just be some exclusive figure for Hot Topic or did this image let the cat out of the bag? We wont know for sure until ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ comes out but I do think it is a possibility. Grey Hulk has Banner’s intellect and if at some point they decide to do a solo movie, maybe ‘Planet Hulk,’ they would need The Hulk not to revert back to Banner but also say more than just “Hulk Smash!”
People are saying that this very fast scene of the Hulk in the newest TV spot shows that he is grey. I kind of think it is just the lighting though.
We’ll have to wait and see on this one.
New Images From ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’
Empire magazine’s most recent issues features some new images from ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron.’
Newsstand and Collector Edition Covers:
Some of these photos have a (very) few Easter Eggs in them. I put togther a side by side comparision to show the ones that I was able to find.
Do you notice something similar? Captain America’s costume in Age Of Ultron is the exact same costume as his Winter Soldier costume except it is painted a different color. Look at the stripes and that expalins why the middle red stripe doesn’t go down lower like the other two.
Bruce Banner/The Hulk:
It appears that now when Banner transforms into the Hulk his eyes start to turn green. This has to be a homage to the original TV Series, The Incredible Hulk, starring Bill Bixby.
Chris Evans And Chris Pratt Battle Over A Superbowl Winner
After it was determined that the New England Patriots were to face the Seattle Seahawks in this year’s Superbowl, Chris Evans, a long time Patriots fan, sent out the following tweet to his friend, Chris Pratt, a long time Seahawks fan:
“Well, well, well @prattprattpratt, looks like our teams are going into battle. For the next 2 weeks, you are not my friend, you are my enemy,” Evans, 33, wrote.
Pratt responded with ‘@chrisevans OK. Seahawks win you fly yourself to Seattle, visit @seatllechildren hospital as Captain America, waving the 12th man flag.’
Evans responded with ‘@prattprattpratt I accept. And when the Patriots humiliate your seachickens, I expect Star-Lord to arrive at @chris_haven in a Brady jersey.’
Even with the outcome last night, both men will be visiting both locations. These guys are some real life heroes for sure
