‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Writers Say Thanos Would Beat Hulk Without Infinity Stones


“I may be speaking out of turn, I think Thanos could kick the Hulk’s ass without the stone,”McFeely said to Collider and Markus agreed to it.

We saw Hulk at the start of Avengers: Infinity War when he exploded into the scene and attacked the Mad Titan after Loki’s declaration “We have a Hulk.” However, we wonder what was the green monster doing when the Black Order was slaughtering the Asgardian refugees?

“In the bathroom,” Markus joked. “You gotta go, you gotta go,”McFeely said.

He’s Hulk,” Markus added. “It takes a while.”

On a serious note, Markus  said: “absolutely for dramatic effect.”

“It was also a plan on their part,” he added. “I think they were getting Thanos into position, and then giving [Hulk] the best chance.”

“It’s sort of the design of that opening scene, we want to make it clear you’re not in your father’s Oldsmobile,”McFeely said.

“We want to announce Thanos as the biggest villain in the MCU, he takes out the previous reigning champion, and by defeating Hulk relatively savagely and easily, hopefully, there’s a sense of dread over the course of the rest of the movie for anyone who will come up against him, and so that’s just sort of a scene design.”

After he got hammered in the initial sequence of Avengers: Infinity War and later escaped to Earth, the ‘strongest Avenger’ remained without his Hulk for throughout the remainder of the movie, and it was the human Bruce Banner who had to battle as the hero.

“I think people have interpreted it as Hulk’s scared,” Avengers: Infinity War director Joe Russo said during the Happy Sad Confused podcast.

“He’s had his ass kicked before, and he loves a good fight. But I think that it’s really reflective of the journey from Ragnarok,” Joe Russo explained. “These two characters are constantly in conflict with each other over control. And I think that if the Hulk were to say why it’d be Banner only wants Hulk for fighting. I think he’s had enough of saving Banner’s ass.”

We will next see Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk in the presently untitled Avengers 4, scheduled to release on May 3, 2019.
