Avengers 4 Fan Theory Points To A Clash Between Thanos And World Breaker Hulk


Is the Mad Titan about to clash with World Breaker Hulk?

That’s the latest question posed by popular YouTuber and all-around Marvel superfan Webhead, who recently posted a new Avengers 4 theory that’s all about the evolution of Bruce Banner beyond Infinity War.

It’s the latest in a series of speculative videos from Webhead, and while it ought to be filed in the rumor cabinet, the online commentator does make some interesting points about the Hulk’s next steps, and why Banner’s alter-ego needs to up his game if he’s to reclaim his title as the strongest Avenger. Perhaps an evolution into World Breaker Hulk is on the cards? It would certainly make up for the character’s lack of screentime during Infinity War, as Webhead so rightly points out:

I wouldn’t be surprised if Marvel put this character on screen. They usually produce a version of these characters that isn’t as powerful as [their comic book counterparts], because world breaker Hulk can literally destroy worlds with just a single punch. This is where Hulk is most powerful. He glows all green, and becomes extremely enraged, destroying everything in his path.

Continuing on, Webhead alludes to Hulk’s comic book arc, and how his character is often portrayed as the strongest of all Avengers – even if Thor Odinson comes pretty damn close every once in a while. Plus, now that Marvel’s God of Thunder has been bestowed with Stormbreaker, surely it’s time for Hulk 2.0?

It is kind of like what we saw in Infinity War, when they gave Thor his new hammer. We saw in Ragnarok that Thor had really become the God of Thunder, even without [Mjolnir]. And then in Infinity War, when he got the Stormbreaker, he really just became the all-powerful god. And I have a feeling that we’re going to see that with Hulk in Avengers 4. We didn’t get to see a lot of Hulk during Infinity War, and I think we’ll see a Hulk that is very different. Especially because they always use that joke that Hulk is the strongest Avenger and [after Infinity War] he really needs to step up his game in order to top Thor.

Pretty intriguing, no? Whatever the case, Marvel’s Incredible Hulk will be back on our screens next year thanks to the so-far untitled Avengers 4. And after that? Who knows, but it seems the prospect of a standalone Hulk movie is little more than pie in the sky.
