Kevin Feige Reveals Hulk’s Official MCU Name In Avengers: Endgame


There’ve been plenty of questions spawned from Avengers: Endgame, and many of them ask what’s next for the MCU? Recently, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has been taking it upon himself to try and answer some of them, like during a Reddit AMA this week. And one of the things he discussed was the interesting new form the Hulk takes in the latest film.

By the time we first see him in Endgame, Banner and Hulk have made peace, finding a way to co-exist rather than letting just one sit in the driver’s seat at a time. The result is a balance of both: a glasses-wearing, comprehensible Hulk.

A lot of fans have been referring to this version of the character as Professor Hulk, as he’s called in the comic books. However, when asked whether or not this new Hulk thought about bringing back the snapped creatures to a safe place when he wielded the gauntlet, Feige announced that those in the MCU actually call the green beast something else.

“We refer to the version of Hulk in Endgame as Smart Hulk,” he wrote. “So yes.”

While this may be the first time a lot of fans are hearing the name, it isn’t a revelation to the moviegoers who used ADA captioning devices to watch the film.

The good news is that this probably won’t be the last time we hear the name, either. Feige went on to talk more about the character, and specifically a meeting with actor Mark Ruffalo about where Hulk could go in the future.

“He pitched a lot of cool ideas, some of which led to what you saw in Thor: RagnarokInfinity War and Endgame, and some of which would still be cool to see someday.”

Unfortunately, the Marvel honcho didn’t go into much more detail after that. But from the looks of it, Ruffalo will be returning as Hulk later on in the MCU. Whether or not that Hulk will wear glasses and a T-shirt though, has yet to be confirmed.
