Avengers: Endgame: Hulk’s original role in Infinity War revealed by writers
Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have spoken at length about Hulk's role in Avengers: Infinity War.
Mark Ruffalo aka Bruce Banner aka Hulk is quite an interesting superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Avengers series features all the superheroes including Hulk but did you know about his original role in Avengers: Infinity War? Now writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have spoken at length about Hulk’s arc in their interview to The New York Times and that’s quite interesting.
Hulk and Banner weren’t able to encounter with Thanos at the beginning of Infinity War. He then took a backseat and then Banner was left to fight in the Hulkbuster armor. When we saw him in the latest release Endgame, we have seen him as Professor Hulk with the best parts of both Banner and Hulk. Marks and McFeely told in their interview that the change was supposed to happen much earlier i.e in Infinity War. But they thought that it was not going well with the tone of the movie, so they saved it for the finale.
Here’s the interview.
Markus: There was a time when Banner became Smart Hulk in the first movie. It was a lot of fun, but it came at the wrong moment. It was an up, right when everyone else was down.
McFeely: It happened in Wakanda. His arc was designed like, I’m not getting along with the Hulk, the Hulk won’t come out. And then they compromise and become Smart Hulk.
Markus: We were like, but he’s Smart Hulk in the next movie. So that diner scene [in “Endgame”], was like, O.K., how do we smash right into that without scenes of him in a lab, gene-splicing?
McFeely: Oh, I wrote scenes in a lab. Now it’s just him eating pancakes and I think it generally works.
Markus: The whole thing rides on Rudd going, “I’m so confused.”
That’s really interesting, isn’t it?
