New Guardians of the Galaxy set photo may tease a Planet Hulk connection

With all of the talk this week about where Mark Ruffalo's solo adventure as The Hulk may take him, a film version of Planet Hulk didn't seem likely. Well, at least as a direct adaptation of the 2006 storyline. But, there may be some validity to an adventure showcasing Hulk crossing paths with the aliens from that story, the Sakaaran.

The Sakaaran are an alien race from the planet Sakaar which is the setting for the Planet Hulk story arc. And guess which alien race's vessel was recently showcased in an Instagram photo from GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY director James Gunn?

Yep, that Necrocraft is a Sakaaran ship which means the red-skinned aliens may be making an appearance in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. While this does not mean that there will be a direct lead in to a Planet Hulk movie, it certainly appears that Marvel is at least planting the seeds for that to be possible in the future. It also begins to draw connections between THE AVENGERS films and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Could we be seeing a crossover within Phase Three?

The amount of effort to craft a physical set like in the photo above tells me that this is not going to be a passing reference to the Sakaarans but rather include them in a fairly substantial moment of the film. Here's hoping this isn't us blowing this reference out of proportion.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY hits theaters on August 1st.

I believe they changed Korvath the Pursuer (Djimon Honsou) from Kree to Sakarran. I know it was a rumor that Hulk might end up in space with GotG with a loose adaptation of Planet Hulk, but at the same time Thor Dark World also had a Planet Hulk reference. Korg, one of Hulk's gladiator teammates/rivals, is the one who gets his assed kicked by Thor right before he says "Anyone else?"

I thought Sakaarans being in this movie was already common knowledge, considering the GotG toys have Sakaaran troopers, and those same troopers can be seen in the trailer.

Never seen the toys, so I had no idea about them being in the movie. Plus sometimes extra figures are made that dont appear in movies, just to sell toys. So I dont put any faith in what toys are release for films.

Im sorry, but I dont know how you figure this is a Sakaraan ship. Unless he said it was in his instagram photo. I have both the book and cartoon and the ship doesn't look familiar.
