9. Planet Hulk
James Gunn has said again and again that The Hulk will not be part of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. The director has such a close relationship with his fans that it’s hard to believe he would outright lie to them about this, but just because it looks like it won’t be happening doesn’t mean it shouldn’t.
In the comics, the Green Goliath ends up in outer space after being sent there by The Avengers and lands on a planet where he’s forced to compete in a gladiatorial arena of sorts. After conquering that world, The Hulk returned to Earth with an armada to get revenge on the heroes who sent him away, and this pretty much sounds like the perfect Avengers movie for Phase 4, right?
Well, with The Avengers set to head into outer space for Infinity War, it makes sense for that to set up a World War Hulk movie…
