Thor: Ragnarok will put a large amount of focus on the Hulk once more, yet due to distribution issues with Universal Pictures, the possibility that another standalone Hulk movie could be made is a major uncertainty. However, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says that he’s interested, even if it’s unfortunately not his call to make.
IndieWire interviewed Feige ahead of the release of the third Thor movie – and since the Hulk is a part of this story, the question of whether or not another standalone movie could be made naturally came up. Feige hinted that they’ve had discussions with Universal in the past, and that he finds it encouraging that there’s clear interest in a sequel from fans:
“I think that back and forth continues, and I don’t know if it will ever happen. But I will tell you, it makes me very, very happy going from a world, ten years ago, when people were questioning the viability of Hulk in a standalone film, to getting asked every other interview, ‘When will there be another standalone Hulk?'”
Marvel won’t officially announce any more movies until the release of Avengers: Infinity War at the absolute earliest and the Spider-Man sequel at the absolute latest, so that would give Marvel Studios and Universal plenty of time to hypothetically to work something out. It certainly seems like Universal would be better off getting Hulk a bigger corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – like what Sony is doing with Spider-Man – than they would be to keep pursuing the Dark Universe (which is one installment in and already appears to be dead in the water).
Thor: Ragnarok collides on November 3, 2017 with a cast that includes Chris Hemsworth as Thor Odinson, Mark Ruffalo as Doctor Bruce Banner (The Hulk), Tesssa Thompson as Valkyrie, Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin Borson, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Stephen Strange, Karl Urban as Skurge, Jeff Goldblum as En Dwi Gast (The Grandmaster), Tom Hiddleston as Loki Laufeyson, Cate Blanchett as Hela, and Clancy Brown as Sutur.
The 10 Movie Trailers With The Most Views In 24 Hours, Ranked
Not all trailers are created equal. Some give away too many plot points while some don’t reveal enough. Some only earn a couple thousand views in their lifetime, while others earn up to 197 million views in just 24 hours. At this point, trailers have become an art form in themselves as they sell the movie to audiences who have thousands of different entertainment projects competing for their attention. To win the public’s attention, studios often spend big money on marketing campaigns designed to draw as many eyes onto a franchise as possible.
Heroic Hollywood has gathered the ten trailers that generated the most views in their 24 hours and ranked them from worst to best. Just because a trailer is on the top ten doesn’t mean that it’s good (the same applies for the movies mentioned in this list), it just means it succeeded in capturing the attention of the world for a moment. In the dog-eat-dog world that is the entertainment industry, if you aren’t able to generate buzz around your product months before it’s even released, then you’re doing something wrong.
