This week, folks on Reddit are questioning what this model of the hero would appear to be with Edward Norton in Mark Ruffalo‘s place.
Smart Hulk was a giant shock in Endgame despite the fact that there have been some leaks that confirmed the character beforehand. No one may have anticipated him to indicate up already reworked with no large battle that confirmed the transformation. Still, regardless of a really successful portrayal of the character, some followers can not help however marvel what the model of the MCU with Norton alongside for the trip as Hulk would have seemed like.
A Reddit put up confirmed the very unusual outcomes, and this creation may fall underneath the “Nightmare Fuel” class. Glowing inexperienced eyes shouldn’t be one thing that the character wanted and fairly actually would have added to the creepy issue fairly a bit. Everything else is spot on and this comes simply days after one other try to mock-up Norton as the clever model of Hulk.
Ruffalo has grow to be essentially the most recognizable face of the character for some youthful followers. Still, the developments of the final couple films that Hulk has appeared in lead folks to imagine that perhaps Norton’s efficiency may have crammed the function just a little higher. Unfortunately for the veteran actor, that ship has sailed, and Ruffalo has indicated that he’d love to return again to do extra work with the character.
Fans had been in all probability anticipating a bit extra from Hulk in Endgame after that fast stomping that Thanos gave him in Infinity War. Especially with Smart Hulk round, theaters in all probability anticipated them to sq. off once more and the improved model to emerge victorious within the rematch.

He continued, “I know a lot of people were saying they can’t wait for [Hulk and Thanos’] rematch. Well, that would’ve made sense had he not become Smart Hulk. He’s a whole different thing, and that’s not what drives him. So we never thought, ‘Oh, he really is trying to get a crack at Thanos now.'”
It simply wasn’t meant to be and the conflict in Infinity War was already packed to the brim. Wakanda was not the time or the place for the eventual transformation. In reality, the full defeat made Hulk consider a number of his relationship with Banner. The two must transfer previous their defeats and variations with one another to reverse among the injury Thanos had completed with the snap.
Christopher Markus additionally helped determine that having a giant triumphant second for the characters simply minutes earlier than that crushing ending may need been tone-deaf.
