Producer Hypes Up 'Hulk 2' Villain Rumor


Producer Hypes Up 'Hulk 2' Villain Rumor
Sharing her plan to bring sequel of 'Incredible Hulk' to the big screen, producer Gale Anne Hurd hints that The Leader could be the green raging superhero's next foe.


After smashing The Abomination in "The Incredible Hulk", the green raging superhero may next battle other mutated villain, The Leader. The possibility is thrown out by "Hulk" producer Gale Anne Hurd when talking to MTV News about her plan on making sure "Hulk 2" is delivered to the big screen.

Revealing on what Tim Blake Nelson's character Samuel Sterns will be transforming into after having a sample of Banner's blood drip into an open wound on his head, she directly mentions The Leader's name. "It would be a blast [to put the Leader in the sequel]," she then continues, "and Tim Blake Nelson is tremendous and a very talented filmmaker in his own right."

"When I think of all the many, many, many villains in the Hulk universe, we've now done the Abomination, so wouldn't it be great to tackle the Leader?" Hurd elaborates more on the idea of making Leader as the main villain for the sequel. "It's a completely different type of cerebral villain, which would give the movie a terrific new take on the character."

Other than discussing about the possible villain, the filmmaker also notes that though Bruce Banner's depicter, Edward Norton, has been signed on once again to take the superhero role, it still depends on the story. "It's all going to depend on the screenplay and where his character goes in any sequel, because he does have a multiple-picture deal," she said. "[Norton's situation] is the same with every franchise like this, when you have one of the top actors of his generation."

Putting the sequel rumor aside, Hulk has been said to be considered by both "Incredible Hulk" director Louis Leterrier and "Iron Man" writers to be the bad guy in the future "The Avengers" movie. However, no word coming out yet from Marvel Studios on the proposed idea. "Avengers" itself is slated for U.S. release on July 15, 2011.
