Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely revealed they considered introducing Red Hulk to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Avengers: Endgame.
Five years after our heroes failed to defeat Thanos and learned the Mad Titan prevented them from reversing his decimation by destroying the Infinity Stones, Bruce Banner merged his persona with the Hulk to become the perfect combination of both, not unlike the Professor Hulk character from the comics. However, co-writer Stephen McFeely revealed they almost considered introducing Red Hulk in Avengers: Endgame at one point.
During an interview with Backstory Magazine, Stephen McFeely was asked if the scene in which the Hulk’s skin burns with a red glow after being exposed to the power of the Infinity Stones was a sign they considered featuring the Red Hulk in Avengers: Endgame. After noting that he considered the possibility for a day, McFeely explained that their version of Red Hulk would have been different than the comic book incarnation and would not have been enough of a change for Bruce Banner:
“Red Hulk is a completely different thing in the comics. It wound up being, well, really we’re just saying he changes color. That’s not a character change. If there’s a future for William Hurt as a superhero, he can turn into Red Hulk.”
In the comics, General Ross transformed into the powerful Red Hulk in order to fare better in a showdown with the Green Goliath.
