Fan Theorizes Why Hulk Hid Through Most Of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Avengers Infinity War Hulk Bruce Banner Hiding

The Hulk is [normally] always ready to throw down and fight, even if a situation doesn’t call for it. Though in those instances, it’s probably because someone got on Bruce Banner’s bad side. Now the Russo Brothers in the past have already given their explanation as to why the Hulk wouldn’t come out to play after being thoroughly trounced by Thanos early on in Avengers: Infinity War, but one fan over on Reddit has taken it upon themselves to offer an explanation.

But more than that, they tackle the two reasons given why Banner couldn’t summon Hulk again throughout Infinity War. Those two explanations include Hulk being tired of being used as a weapon after being used for pure show and spectacle in Thor: Ragnarok, and the other being Hulk was afraid of Thanos. On their own and individually, the poster says, neither of these theories holds up. So what gives? The theory postulates that after Hulk helped Thor during Ragnarok, he was still no match for either Hela or Surtur.

More than that, of the main Avengers, Thor is the one who treated Hulk more like an equal, no doubt because Thor had more time to spend with Hulk — that we’ve seen — during Ragnarok and leading into Avengers: Infinity War. After falling to Thanos, though, the Hulk became withdrawn and hid away. With those losses under his belt and the people of Asgard being effectively wiped out by Thanos, what option is there for the Hulk other than to hide? He was no match for Thanos, so what good is he now? Here, have a look at the Hulk theory in the post below.

While Banner was ultimately one of the survivors of the Thanos snap at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, it remains to be seen if the two will throw down again in Avengers 4, or if Banner can even manage to summon the Hulk again. But what do you think of this theory? Does this make sense why the Hulk wouldn’t come out again after falling to Thanos? And do you think that Bruce can summon him again in time for the follow-up? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Avengers: Infinity War is available now on Digital HD, 4K, Blu-Ray, and DVD.

‘Captain Marvel’ Funko Toys Confirm Carol Danvers’ Cat Will Appear

Previous1 of 16

Captain Marvel Brie Larson Carol Danvers Kevin FeigeWith just about four months away from the release of Captain Marvel, Funko has now revealed its upcoming line of Pop! Vinyl Figures that are tied-in to the highly-anticipated film that features Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, the titular heroine and perhaps the most powerful character in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The reveal of this new line of Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures show off some of the characters set to appear in the film, one of which includes Carol Danvers’ feline companion Goose the Cat.

The name of our heroine’s cat may come as a surprise to fans of the comics because in previous incarnations, Captain Marvel’s cat is named Chewie and is actually part of the Flerken species.

You can check out two collectible Funko figures of Goose the Cat in the gallery down below. You can start viewing the images by clicking “Next”.

Are you excited to see Carol Danvers’ Goose the Cat in the film? What do you make of the new name choice instead of Chewie? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news in the MCU.

Here is the synopsis for the film:

Based on the Marvel comic character first appearing in 1968, the story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.  Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.

Captain Marvel will be released in theaters on March 8, 2019.

    According to the Russos, though, that’s not how they saw it.

    “A lot of people had interpreted that the Hulk was scared of Thanos. The Hulk has had his ace kicked before, and so it wasn’t like the minute he gets his ace kicked he’s going to run and hide. It’s really the notion that the Hulk and Banner have a very dysfunctional relationship, which was explored even further in Thor: Ragnarok. And I think that relationship is starting to strain between the two of them and the Hulk is not interested in playing the hero to Banner anymore,” Joe Russo said. “I don’t know if the Hulk sees the value in the relationship. They both want to control Hulk’s body. The Hulk brings fighting and strength to the table and he’s not quite sure what Banner is bringing yet. So, I think this is becoming a stubborn push and pull between two very despaired personalities stuck in one body.”

    From August.

    Keep up the “work”.

    This would be a better reason than what the Russos gave us, and now that Thor is on earth, maybe he could talk the Hulk into coming out.
