Planet Hulk trailer

08.03.2009

Didn't care much for last two feature film adaptations of THE HULK? Me neither. Thankfully, there's a new Hulk project in the works that looks better than any heaping pile of CGI we’ve seen so far.

That would be PLANET HULK, the new DVD/Blu-ray project from Marvel which chronicles the Hulk’s exile from Earth, and his subsequent rise to stardom as a gladiator on an alien planet. As you’ll see in the trailer, he’s quite good at his new job.

Projects like this make you wonder why more obscure, yet awesome stories like this don’t get made into feature films. Who says you have to start with an origin story? Why not drop Wolverine straight into Japan or Batman into Arkham? Sooner or later Hollywood’s going to have to stop playing it safe with superhero movies as they run out of first chapters to start with.

Extra Tidbit: You can't really have a much more epic concept than "futuristic superhero gladiator arena."

animation still not to the standard of some of japan's top syndicated animated shows. Why must they keep releasing such cheap features that look very un intriguing animation wise???

World War Hulk would make a good movie even though I feel as a comic it was a little more than above average.

I think what Paul meant was obscure to the masses, DaForce. We're talking about feature films here. This would most definitely be a novel and awesome idea for a Hulk movie. I like this streak the Hulk films have going of being completely different from installment to installment.

YES!!!

I love it! Adapting one of Marvel's most creative spin-offs is really a smart move especially in this new "Avengers" era. It reminds the world that there is still more story to tell. And you know what this means...

WORLD WAR HULK SEQUEL!!!! F*CK YEAH! That will be the most epic Blu-Ray animation yet! (Drool!)

"Obscure" story? Really? This was one of Marvel's big event storylines that lead into World War Hulk. Not exactly "obscure" if you've picked up a comic book withing the last two years.

Looks pretty good. Oh and I am also SICK or Origin flicks. Everyone and their mother already knows the characters! Lets get on with the ACTION.

Yeah, these flicks can be "hit or miss" but I'm diggin this one as it's a prologue to WORLD WAR HULK which would make a great animated film (here's hoping). I also recently enjoyed GREEN LANTERN: FIRST FLIGHT.

Nice

I'm really glad we are getting more harder-edged animation from Marvel and DC recently. They may help to revive American animation and regain the market from the Japanese.

Good try from Marvel here, but the animation and direction are just inferior to the Japanese.
