Wow, @k4tzm4n I don't get any props for calling this, I see how it is.

You mean I wasn't the only person who thought Phase 3 could lead the way to Planet Hulk/WWH -- two very popular Hulk stories -- after they revealed Hulk doesn't have a solo movie in the next phase and we saw him distressed in the A:AOU trailer?

GASP!

I'd like to see Planet Hulk and THEN World War Hulk. I was on a long hiatus from comics and it was Planet Hulk that got me back into them I would also love to see them utilize the licenses they got back: Ghost Rider and Blade. I want a Midnight Sons movie, and if they're able to, use Morbius as well. Doctor Strange will be established enough by then to be a apart of this.

Well, yeah... the article says Planet Hulk would be first ;)

I find it highly unlikely that Mark Ruffalo would still be playing Hulk come phase 4. But that doesn't deter from the great article k4tzm4n. However..........

To be honest, I'm not even really all that excited for the Phase 3 lineup from Marvel. As somebody else mentioned earlier, I'm kind of getting tired of all these superhero movies.

From marvel I'm looking forward to the next Avengers movie next year, and the final installment of ASM (whenever that comes out) and that's about it.

I'm a DC guy and am way more excited about their plan for the next 5 years....but after the Justice League part 2.... That's about it, I will have seen enough of the characters I really care about.

I have no interest in seeing these movies get all convoluded with avengers and inhumans and guardians all getting thrown together. It sounds like a big mess to me.

Thanks.

Yeah, based on reports, it seems like Sony isn't 100% sure on how they're handling Spidey's future. Guess we'll just have to wait and see. It's disappointing since I really enjoyed ASM 2. I know it's blasphemy to say that, but I really do enjoy it.

@k4tzm4n: There's one downside to all of this though, for you I mean, because you for my hopes up, and if PHASE 4 isn't about hulk, then I'll probably blame you!

But in all seriousness, it's only fair, since Feige basically told us that hulk will be a popularity booster for the other marvel movies. It's great to see more of him but still, nothing beats a standalone.

Dawn of the Planet of the Hulk, a.k.a. Phase 3.

No. The following was in Business Week's interview with Feige, though.

There’s a map of films reaching far into the next decade on the wall of Feige’s office. “It’s like looking through the Hubble telescope. You go, ‘What’s happening back there? I can sort of see it,’ ” he laughs. “They printed out a new one recently that went to 2028.”

That obviously doesn't confirm they'll follow through with said plans, but if the genre continues to thrive, it looks like they'll most definitely move forward with a Phase 4.

Very cool. I wonder if DC is being as carefully ambitious as it sounds like KF is.

I also thing it will be interesting to see different actors assume roles in the MCU. Like James Bond...but in a much bigger universe with far more characters.

It's tough to tell, but adding an Oscar winning writer and pushing back BvS at least implies they're not going for a blatant cash grab and rushing things. Or at least I hope not. I think the bar has been raised when it comes to the comic book genre and everyone knows they need to bring their A game or not bother at all.

@theacidskull: I actually need to think on that one haha. The knee-jerk reaction is that, if handled right, I wouldn't be opposed.

I'd actually be fully on board for this movie. But I NEEEEEEED a Black Widow movie asap

"ASAP" is a long time away according to the slate... it looks like she'll have a big role in Age of Ultron, though.

First off, I gotta say kudos on the article, because the only iteration of Hulk I've ever really cared about is Ruffalo's (I never actually saw the Norton one), and this article really makes me want a Hulk movie, even if I'd rather see quite a few others get movies first.

And yeah, it looks like she definitely will, but it's super frustrating to see all the love for Black Widow, and all the people actively campaigning for a Black Widow solo and Feige brushing it off as her getting due shine in Avengers.

Well, wasn't it confirmed the GotG co-writer worked on a Black Widow treatment? Guess it's a matter of finding the right script and finding out when they do could it. Then it's a matter of whether the actress is still available or if they'd need to recast. Or if Natasha's even alive... because, you know, Whedon loves to break our hearts.

Why are people always looking so far ahead. We're still in Phase 2 we have a long way to go until Phase 4.

That being said a Hulk centric Phase 4 I'd be okay with.

Because it's fun to think about where things could go next and how the next slate will look. STOP TRYING TO STOP ME FROM HAVING FUN! *runs away crying*

Also, it was surprising to see Hulk not receive a solo movie considering how much people loved him The Avengers. I'm hoping it's because they have bigger plans for him and felt like babbling about it.

@theacidskull said:

Sounds like a wonderful idea if you ask me. If, according to Marvel, Hulk's going to appear in other films to help boost the views, then Phase 4 should be about him. Plus, it'll be, like you said, something more refreshing and new. This time around, if executed well of course, the audience will be rooting for the supposed bad guy of the film, because we'll be able to sympathize with his goals and motives. With ultron, Thanos, and Loki, we can't really have that, not completely. Sure you can agrue that people felt bad for Loki in the first Thor movie but after that he just became an insane villain (an awesome one though). Also, it's kinda interesting how right before phase 4, every essential character to the World War Hulk arc is being introduced into the Marvel Cinematic universe (Inhumans, Doc Strange, etc). I wouldn't be surprised if the Guardians of the galaxy took the fantastic fours place in the arc. Suffice to say it'll be amazing if they decide to go along with the idea.

And above everything else, it'll be a chance to introduce either Silver surfer or some other cosmic character in his place, Like Beta Ray Bill, who filled in for Norin in the animated movie.

Great article, Gregg.

Thanks and 100% agreed about why Hulk being the villain could be compelling. And yup, I was also thinking GotG could replace F4 and this could be used to bring in Beta Ray Bill. Looks like we're on the same page.

Ha, that's great.

@greenscar1990 said:

Great article, Gregg! I agree with everything that you've written. And I honestly hope this will be the direction that Phase 4 will undertake. There's a lot of potential to be mined here.

Bring on PLANET HULK & WORLD WAR HULK!!!!

Thank you!

Really? Already making articles about Phase 4 while Phase 3 is still 2 years away? C'mon guys...

....Nostalgia is mine!

Yeah, it feels like a true follow-up to the first movie. Wish more people were checking it out.

If there's a Green Arrow fight you want in his Best Battles, let us know!

@dondave: Just FYI, you don't need to list multiple fights that happen in the issue. Each highlight is titled by the issue (instead of a vs b) and it can cover most of the good action that happens within the issue.

I don't think it was Ra's. I think Malcolm thinks it was Ra's, and I think the writers want us to think it was as well, but it seems too easy and too early for it to be Ra's, and I don't buy that he'd even care enough to have her killed. Earlier in the season it was said that the League does not kill their own, and I think that line was for the audience, specifically people who pay attention, telling them to not be fooled. I think the real killer is either someone we haven't seen before, or someone so crazy we couldn't possibly know. I don't think we can confidently use the reaction as clues to who the killer is, and that once we do know the reaction won't make sense.

In the comics, Ra's has very high standards for who Talia should be with. I wouldn't be surprised if that transfers over and he had Sara -- a character he likely doesn't admire/respect -- killed upon hearing about her relationship with his daughter, Nyssa. If it's a character we haven't even seen yet, I sincerely hope it's not just some throwaway villain. Can't help but wonder if that character was ordered by Ra's, though.

Also, I was suspecting Ra's before they tried to pin it on Malcolm and he responded that way ;)

Top list, today I booked tickets for a double showing of Alien and Aliens directors cuts!

That's awesome.

Did Marvel get the rights to Blade back? If they did that could be a possibility.

Yes, they did.
