This linked to his Tumblr, which had a link to Marvel’ official announcement about Civil War beginning production followed by his comment, “Welcome to the wild party! Looking forward to this amazing cast.”
Was he simply commenting as a fan who’s excited for so many characters to come together in a Marvel movie? Or is he hinting that he’s going to be joining the “wild party”?
When we last saw Hulk, he was sadly flying away in the Quinjet, trying to make sure that he won’t hurt anyone else. It was a poignant conclusion for the character, and I wonder if Civil War will be able to make any real time for him. It’s possible he could be part of a side story involving General “Thunderbolt” Ross (William Hurt), who’s returning to the franchise, but I guess we’ll have to wait to find out.
If Hulk does return, then Thor will be the only original Avenger who isn’t in Civil War. Presumably, he’s off dealing with Infinity Gauntlet problems that will probably tie into Thor: Ragnarok, but that’s another franchise for another day. In the meantime, Captain America: Civil War is currently filming in Georgia for May 6, 2016 release.
