If you are still wondering about Hulk’s performance issues in Avengers: Infinity War and why he chose not to appear in the entire film, we have the answer waiting for you.
The directors of the film, Anthony and Joe Russo, recently revealed why Bruce Banner’s angry green alter-ego chose to stay away from the mega battle of superheroes and their biggest challenge, Thanos.
Marvel’s latest offering to its fans came and went without explaining various theories, which the fans are dying to know. Remember James Gunn’s revelation of Groot’s last words before disintegrating into dust?
Now, one more interesting theory about the film has been brought to the light by none other than its directors and this is about the Avenger’s mightiest superhero, the Hulk.
According to a report in HT, Joe in an appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast said, “I think people have interpreted it as Hulk’s scared. I mean, certainly, that’s not a… I don’t know that the hulk is ever…he’s had his ass kicked before, and he loves a good fight. But…it’s really reflective of the journey from ‘Ragnarok’.”
In the opening scenes of the film, fans were thrilled to finally witness the epic clash between Thanos and Hulk, which Thanos eventually won in a one-sided beatdown. If he was not afraid of the mad titan, why didn’t we get to see anymore of the ‘Hulk Smash’ in the film?
Interestingly, the answer from the one half of the director duo is confusing and intriguing at the same time.
Joe added, “These two character (Banner and Hulk) are constantly in conflict with each other over control. And I think that if the Hulk were to say why, it’d be Banner only wants Hulk for fighting. I think he’s had enough of saving Banner’s a**.”
Wait, what? The whole idea of Banner not turning into the green enraged monster was because he was tired of saving the vessel he lives in?
Despite the fact that the confrontation between Banner and Hulk was hilarious in the film, this is some dark element that the makers of the film have picked up on as Banner must feel lucky that he was not among the half of universe, which was wiped out by Thanos in the climax.
Well, whatever the theory might be, the directors have given the fans another reason to wait for the sequel as Banner will finally appear as the Hulk in the upcoming film.
