Red Hulk May Be Smashing His Way Into Captain America: Civil War


When last we saw Bruce Banner, he was piloting a quinjet and going off the grid at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, in an attempt to protect the world from the Hulk. His plan may be foiled by the time Captain America: Civil War comes along though, as a new rumor suggests that he’s not the only rage monster in town.

According to both We Are Wakanda and MCU Exchange, another Hulk is heading to the big screen for the hotly anticipated threequel: Red Hulk, the monstrous alter-ego of General Thunderbolt Ross.

Sources close to the production say that Ross, who will once again be played by The Incredible Hulk actor William Hurt, will in fact Hulk-out in Civil War and engage in a brawl with Banner’s Hulk that will apparently rival the Hulkbuster fight from Age of Ultron (which you can see in the video above).


By the time Civil War comes around, it will have been eight years since we last saw Thunderbolt Ross on screen, so it’s entirely possible that he’s transformed himself into the uninhibited, tactically intelligent red-skinned beast in that time. In the comics, Ross does this as a way to take down the Hulk, but causes quite a bit of destruction and mayhem (like killing Abomination, destroying a Hellicarrier and causing an earthquake in San Francisco) in the process.

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Captain America: Civil War will hit theaters on May 6th, 2016. Tell us, would you like to see Red Hulk make an appearance in the film? Sound off below!
