Ok, this isn’t confirmed by any means necessary, but it’s a rumor that makes sense in a way. So we’ll run with it. One of the biggest wild cards in the MCU is Hulk, who’s only appeared (recently) in the Avengers movies (and Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner was in the end scene of Iron Man 3 I don’t count that). Obviously given the events of Age of Ultron, he’s still a big threat. I mean one of the big scenes in AOU was him basically destroying a section of a city…again… BUT, he willfully went into seclusion at the end of the movie. So he’ll be left alone, right?
Well, one rumor (via MCU Exchange) states that a new Hulk will arise to make the original one come out. In this case, they’ll arrive in Civil War, a movie in which Hulk has NOT been confirmed to be in as of yet. So, which other Hulk will arrive then? Well, it will be none other than Red Hulk, aka Thunderbolt Thaddeus Ross, who’ll appear for the first time since The Incredible Hulk solo movie (when Edward Norton was Hulk).
Now obviously, again, this is not confirmed. However, William Hurt is in Civil War as Thunderbolt Ross, and Marvel has been flirting with the idea of a new solo Hulk movie. Mark Ruffalo has been more than open to that happening. Perhaps this could be the catalyst to starting a Hulk set of movies? We’ll find out soon hopefully. Captain America: Civil War will hit theaters on May 6, 2016.
