Everyone knows Hulk is rather fond of the occasional “smash” at any time. So it was a shock when he refused to come out and play during Infinity war, leaving Bruce to fend for himself. When and how Hulk would ever return has been one of the biggest mysteries going into Endgame. Even the current Avengers 4 marketing has been very careful to only show the man, not the (not very) jolly green giant on posters and in trailers. Until now.
It was never in doubt Hulk would show up but there have been increasing rumours (and hopes) he might transform into the popular Professor Hulk incarnation.
A leaked promo poster from last year showed a far more human-looking Hulk, which matches the comicbook variation.
Now the Marvel website has unveiled a new range of Endgame figurines which include the Hulk.
The description reads: “The Avengers line-up may have been decimated in Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War – but that doesn’t mean we’re lacking in incredible collectables based on the survivors! Thanks to Diamond Select Toys, we can celebrate the characters continuing the good fight in Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame with a variety of statues and action figures.
“Ant-Man, Iron Man MK85, and a deluxe Hulk will kick off the action as parts of the nine-inch-scale Marvel Movie Gallery Avengers: Endgame PVC Diorama line.”
Fans will be thrilled to see the Jade Giant suited up and flexing his muscles in battle once more.
Fans will also notice the very clear grey hairs at his temples.
This will feed into ongoing speculation there is a time-jump between Avengers 3 and 4.
Welcome back, big guy, we missed you.
