Many fans can’t wait to see The Hulk return in Avengers: Endgame, giving him the chance to square off things against The Mad Titan.
Are you ready for a Hulk- Thanos showdown in Endgame?
But another go at Thanos may prove to be something that gets out a terrible side of Bruce Banner, with Hulk being dormant throughout Infinity War. Hulk appeared in the opening scene and then denied coming out throughout the film. One Marvel fan suggests why Hulk might be the ultimate saviour for Avengers.
Expectations are high for the upcoming Avengers film, and directors Anthony and Joe Russo understand that all fans are anticipating the next phase of MCU.
While talking to Business Insider, Anthony Russo made it clear that fan expectations aren’t going to change their approach to wrap up phase three of the MCU.
“When Joe and I got hired to direct [Captain America:] Winter Soldier, that movie was many multiples larger than anything we’d ever done before as filmmakers,” Anthony said. “But the way we work as filmmakers is we have to satisfy ourselves first and foremost. If we’re making a movie that excites us, that’s the best we can do. We can’t predict if people are going to like it, we just know whether we like it. That’s how we’ve made every one of our Marvel movies and it’s how we’re making this one. For all of the anticipation and anxiety about it, nothing serves Joe and I better than staying focused on the story we’re trying to tell and telling it the best way we can.”
But with Captain Marvel joining the team and Hulk taking over, there might an issue of bringing too many powerful characters that lower the stakes of the battle against Thanos. But the Russos are aware of this too.
“It’s always a concern of ours about overpowering characters, because the reason that people relate to these characters is their humanity, and that they’re flawed,” Joe Russo told CinemaBlend. “And the reason we love working so much with Captain America was that he was limited, and his heart was his superpower, you know? So we’re all acutely aware of the dangers of having an overly powerful character. [But] we like sensitive storytelling, so… we found a thoughtful way through it.”
