I can’t take credit for my post title. It was actually my son who made this comment after the movie. I just borrowed it. Anyway, I don’t think I need to make this a lengthy post to get my point across.
After 2 subpar solo #hulk movies, the #avengers finally got the Hulk right with #Ragnarok also adding to the awesomeness that is the hulk. Then the Russo brothers happened and with the snap of their fingers they wrecked everything about the hulk. And they did it without the gauntlet.
I sat through a 2hr40min infinity war movie only to see a couple minutes worth of the hulk early on getting his ass kicked by thanos.
To say I came out of that movie dismayed is an understatement. I rationalized it in that hulk had alot of on screen time in ragnarok and I was totally convinced he would get his payback in endgame. That didn’t happen. The rumours were confirmed and in endgame, hulk became Professor Hulk. I will be honest I didn’t know what to make of it. It was weird hearing Ruffalo’s voice in the body of the Hulk. What I also didn’t expect was the nonsense that came along with him being professor Hulk.
If I was dismayed coming out of infinity war I really don’t know what word to use after sitting through a 3hr movie and witnessing the destruction of such a great marvel character occur before my eyes.
That scene where he grudgingly smashed the top of the car and barely tossed the motorcycle. WOW!!! Horrible. So Hulk now is a lover, not a fighter? Ridiculous! And finally to witness an epic battle scene versus Thanos where a significant amount of heroes took a shot at him and there is NO HULK AND THANOS SHOWDOWN!!!! What in the fucks, fuck is that all about? How does that not happen??? Pure and unadulterated fuckery is what it is.
Even in the comicbook world as Professor Hulk, he never shied away from a confrontation. Never. Hulk deserved a better sendoff. He deserved to finish with a bang! He was done in dirty. There is no better way to say it.
PS: the fact that his snap using the gauntlet brought everyone back does nothing to appease me. Nothing. Noone will be able to convince me this was the proper storyline for this iconic hero.
Here is a link of interest.. #3 specifically:
Alright. I have waited a week but now it’s time to vent.. So potential spoilers on the way. I think the post title says it all. Literally if you blinked you missed the Hulk in Infinity War. He may have been on screen for about a minute and I think I am being generous.
This was me after the movie and although the ending was all sorts of WTF… I was also disturbed and disappointed with how the Hulk character was handled.
For 2hrs19mins and 30 secs or so I was wondering when I’d see the Hulk again. So here’s my take on this…
I am assuming the lack of screen time in infinity war has to do with the amount of screen time Hulk had in Ragnarok. What isn’t acceptable though is how little time he had. As well, how Hulk was treated.
The whole thing is messed up. So I am supposed to believe that because in those whopping 30secs he lost to Thanos that somehow Hulk was afraid to come out and ‘play’ again. On the one hand in Ragnarok we get to see a Hulk that is starting to talk although child like so.. It’s feasible to buy into him being scared to face Thanos again. On the other hand, the INCREDIBLE Hulk, a SUPER HERO, the mightiest of heroes is scared??? Say Whattttt?
Let’s get this straight… up to this point Hulk was able to take out the Abomination, handled Thor, was able and willing to take on the wolf and surtur in Ragnarok but now he refuses to take on Thanos because he ‘lost’ in a maybe 30sec encounter? BULLSHITTTTTT!!!! In the meantime the likes of all the other heroes, even Black widow and a teenaged spiderman take on Thanos and family without hesitation. So Hulk is painted in a cowards light? Unacceptable!!!
What I hope for is that in Avengers 4 Hulk is given a bigger role and that payback will be a bitch!!!!
