After the Hulks ending scene in the second Avengers movie rumors started to swirl that the Hulk would be added to the next Guardians of the Galaxy film.
During impromptu question-and-answer series with Guardians of the Galaxy fans on social media, director James Gunn shot down rumors that there would be a Planet Hulk tie-in to the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy 2 film and even went on to say “It feels like a great relief to finally say this after all the dumb stuff on the Internet. There’s not going to be a Planet Hulk movie, there was never going to be a Planet Hulk movie, there was never a plan for the Hulk to team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy – I wouldn’t want the Hulk to team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy!”
In addition, he does not believe Guardians of the Galaxy is a superhero movie, and that his favorite Marvel film next to Guardians would have to be the first Iron Man movie.
He also called one Twitter user a “heretic” because he implyed that DC Comics’ Bat-Mite was a rip-off of The Great Gazoo from The Flintstones cartoons, after stating that Bat-Mite was the one character from DC he would like to add into one of his Marvel movies.
