Hmm, this from the network that thought remaking Charlie's Angels was a brilliant idea. I dunno. I'd rather see Ruffalo appear in the other movies (which is a likely scenario as he's supposedly signed on for 6 movies) than have a series which might not fit into the current timeline/universe. This screams "Money Grab". They know how much audiences loved the Hulk in the movie, so this seems like a mad dash to capitalize on that.

I'm just glad we have both of them, will be there early on to see all of their new films, and will end up buying the BDs of most of them.

Nicely said. For the record I wasn't comparing the talents of the two. What I meant to say was I connected with the Avengers in a way that I didn't with either of The Dark Knights (or any other superhero or comic book film for that matter), and for me that puts The Avengers on another level. There was a moment in the film where I thought, not in a bad way, "this is a comic book", and I was suddenly watching with the awed wonder of a twelve yeart old.

Thor returned to Asgard w/ both the Tesseract & Loki at the end of AVENGERS. Fans seem to have enjoyed Loki in this film, so its a sure bet we'll see more of him

Excellent im looking forward to it.

WTF?!?
I can't believe this.
This is the stupidest thing I have ever heard of....

The Hulk can ONLY (and I mean ONLY) exist as a cameo in Marvel Superhero movies or as a member of The Avengers.
ANNNNNNYYYYY thing else is beyond the pale.

Hm. I'll check out the series. lol. They are using the same CGI hulk model from The Avengers movie. That alone means I'm gonna check it out.

"NOOOOOooooooooooooo!!!!"

I was hoping for a film. This is ridiculous, we know now thanks to Ruffalo and the film that at long last, Hulk has potential for his own franchise. But this? no thanks. No mention of Mark Ruffalo of course, and it would surprise me if he were to be part of a TV series. What's next, a Loki spin-off? damn!

I'm sure they will do another incredible hulk film with Ruffalo.

I haven't seen the actual reports of Ruffalo's deal but is it a boilerplate studio deal for six films? Or is it a studio agreement specific to the Marvel franchise?

And believe me, I get the appeal of "Hulk Smash" especially after the performance in the Avengers, but what do you guys think of a Hulk movie that's less (if not no) Hulk and more Banner's storyline as a build up to other Marvel Superhero movies? I'm only asking because IMO, what really made Hulk effective in the Avenger's is the build of tension and anticipation of if/when and how Hulk would show. And IMO, Bana nor Norton could pull that off like Ruffalo did.

I found myself wanting to know more about Banner watching the movie. The way Ruffalo played him and the way it was written, he was an intriging character. Much more than just the Hulk's alter ego. I think Banner could carry a film, as long as the big guy shows up eventually...

Agreed but I just keep thinking about a cliffhanger of sorts. At the end of the movie he changes and segue's into....Thor 2? Iron Man 3? Could be fun.

Actually it would be cool if in iron man 3,Thor 2 etc another member of the avenger team makes a guest appearance in there movie.

I watched a brief vide interview w/ Ruffalo via Rotten Tomatoes the day before Avengers came out in the US. 2 things I recall being mentioned:

1-Ruffalo confirmed that Marvel did in fact sign him up for a multi picture deal (may in fact be 6, but do not recall). Thinking they are keeping all options open beyond Avengers 2 - perhaps a new Hulk movie or the possibility of Ruffalo appearing in other related Marvel projects (still hoping he turns up in IM3 or Thor 2).

2-Ruffalo was bummed that much of his scene w/ Harry Dean Stanton ended up on the cutting room floor. Really felt that he & Stanton had a "beautiful scene" together. But was encouraged when the interviewer stated that Whedon plans to cram most if not all of the cut material on the BluRay.

I'll try to find the link.....

Agreed. Having already interacted with each other in Avengers, I hope Marvel is less coy/stingy about having their characters interact in upcoming movies. I'll admit, it was a treat seeing Tony Stark in a Hulk film. And, post Avengers, it will seem completely natural to see Banner at Stark's lab in the next Iron Man film. Sharing the characters a little more in future Marvel films will make their coming together feel even more inevitable in the second Avengers movie.

IIRC, RDJ, Evans and Hemsworth all signed 6 picture deals. RDJ would love to do a cameo appearance in another film since with IM3 that makes 4 down, 2 to go. If they use him up for a short shoot on another Marvel film besides Avengers II, then he can walk or renegotiate. The other guys are pretty much trapped for another 4 films. For an actor that's a huge commitment and depending on how stringent the contract terms are, perhaps not financially as rewarding as doing other work. Downey had some leverage, Hemsworth and Evans not so much. I read where Evan's salary for Cap was only $300Gs...I'm sure there was some backend because he's a bigger name than that. Hemsworth was nearly an unknown, so I wonder if he even scored an Evans level contract...not that he's not going to have opportunity to make tons of cash during his career. He's young and working a full slate of other projects.

^^ I would very much like to see this. More Banner, with "the Other Guy" showing up at the end to smash something. It's been a long time, but as I recall, that's what made the 70's series effective - Bixby drew you into Banner and you saw ALL the human elements before Big Lou showed up to smash things. Hmm. I need to go rent the dvd's of those shows. . .

The link a few posts back gave a good indication of what the primary cast members made. Apparently RDJ hit the mega millions jackpot, while ScarJo and Sam The Man came in 2nd with big contracts. The others made more than you estimate/heard, but not nearly what RDJ made.

Yeah, (assuming you believe the numbers, which I think are close). And if those numbers are real then I think a lot of agents are going to get fired. And not saying it's not possible but $300K for a big budget superhero action flick that was already billed as a catalyst for the Avengers seems very unlikely even if the contract is nicely back loaded. Especially since Evans was already experienced as playing Torch.

Hulk/Banner should make small cameos in these upcoming singular sequels.

We have had 2 Hulk origin movies and that is enough IMO.
As good a character as Hulk/Banner is, I don't think a Hulk sequel is a particularly good idea....there is so much other stuff for Marvel to mine.

Was I the only one like the chemistry between Stark and Banner in the lab or am I just a nerd like that?

Absolutely true! Anybody who posts here and denies being a nerd knows nothing about how to retain one's credibility.

The $300K was for Captain America First Avenger...I think it was on his IMDB trivia page. Of course there was back loaded compensation, as well. I'm also sure there were excalators for each movie and I don't doubt the article that breaks down what the stars are making for TA. Still Evans and Hemsworth are sucking hindtit vs. the other names. I'll bet Renner is getting a bigger slice.

Yep, I just looked...it's on his triva page on IMDB...$300,000 (maybe they dropped a 0 ;^))
