‘Aquaman’ Vs ‘Planet Hulk:’ Marvel and DC Talk New Movies for ‘Justice Leaguer’ and ‘Avenger’
DC and Marvel are digging into their rosters for their next big superhero film. DC is putting its focus on the Justice League's underappreciated Aquaman, while Marvel is planning to once again tackle Hulk. However, the angry Avenger’s next movie is rumored to be based on the comic-event, Planet Hulk.
Geoff Johns, DC Entertainment’s chief creative officer, spoke with Variety recently about the companies plans to make an Aquaman movie:
“He’s a priority character for the company...There is no doubt in my mind that this is one of the most well-known characters among super-heroes, and in popular culture...We are finding new areas in the ocean every day. It’s as alien as going to outer space.”
John understands the risk involved with Aquaman:
“He became a little bit of a joke. Suddenly, he was nobody’s favorite superhero.”
However, he added that things are starting to change for the character, “He’s a character that we talk quite a bit about.”
Speaking of risk, Marvel is reportedly planning to revive The Hulk for a third solo venture. Kevin Feige, Marvel’s president of production, spoke with MTV about the angry Avenger:
“I don’t think there’s a lot that we couldn’t do someday, as the cinematic universe continues to grow and expand and get as big as the comic book universe. Planet Hulk is a cool story. World War Hulk is a cool story… I think there are pitfalls of continuity-overload, and mythology getting so dense that it almost collapses in on itself. It happens every few decades or so in the comics. Apart from that, I’d say everything is on the table. Do I think Hulk can carry a movie and be as entertaining as he was in ‘Avengers’? I do believe that. I do believe he absolutely could. We certainly are not even going to attempt that until ‘Avengers 2. So there’s a lot of time to think about it.”
The first Hulk, Lou Ferrigno, confirmed the news when he told Flicks and the City, “they are doing another Hulk movie.”
