Because people want some approximation of the look and feel of the vintage console and playing experience? It's not like the Mini-Snes is being produced instead of these games being released on the switch VC, that'll happen eventually anyway

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Sega did it with some of their Genesis titles for the PS3 and XBox 360, and Midway did the same. Several times.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 June 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Instead of making classic consoles with classic games built in, why not release those games in classic sets for the Switch?

@  Rycochet : (26 June 2017 - 06:25 PM)

The fate of 2002 MOTU still makes me sad, I loved that line.

Bah. There are many many toys rarer than Movieverse toys. Any character that wasn't He-Man or Skeletor for instance! :)

@  Paladin : (26 June 2017 - 05:16 PM)

Nintendo consoles are the only things rarer than new waves of Movieverse toys.

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 June 2017 - 03:48 PM)

Nintendo claims they'll be producing "significantly more" units of the SNES, so maybe there's a chance. It'd be better this time if they just took pre-orders, and based their production on that

We could be taking this the wrong way. What if this person means to sacrifice their own money to prevent Armada Sideswipes from falling into the hands of those who don't know better?

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 06:26 AM)

People say silly things online all the time, usually followed by a smilie or a wink. Take away the context and they go from being a joke to absurd hyperbole.

But that would miss the entire point of hyperbole.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Well that's a stupid attitude from someone who would waste a lot of money. I mean, they should just... not buy movie toys?

Just a rumor right now:

http://screencrush.c...hare_mobile_top

I'd love it for this to be true. I really love the Hulk (own every issue) and I've realy enjoyed the Thor movies. They're among my favorite Marvel films.

Now sure, In my dreams I'd give the Hulk another solo film (based on Peter David's classic Gamma Bomb story vs the Leader and Sheild) but barring that this could be really fun. Marvel loves doing different genre-bending versions of the superhero story. A Thor & Hulk buddy film would be absolutely awesome. :)


-ZacWilliam, in my dream Hulk films I'd also do a Grey Hulk film and Pantheon Hulk film, spin a She-Hulk off of one of those and only then the often speculated Planet Hulk, but that all seems unlikely so I guess I'll just dream of a Hulk out of water in Asgard Thor/Hulk buddy flick for now. :)

This could be, if true, really make Thor Ragnarok really cool.

I too would like one or more solo Hulk films. Except i would really prefer they steer well clear of Planet Hulk. I've just always found the idea of the best and brightest "Heroes" declaring the Hulk too unstable for Earth, and then shooting him off into space makes the good guys far less noble than i like.

I feel like you could do the bulk of Planet Hulk without that. Maybe Loki drops him there after Ragnarok or Thanos flings him there in one of the Infinity movies. Or someone does something that sends him on a rampage like the Witch did and they have no choice. I think the movies change enough parts of stories that you could make it work without making Tony and company terrible jerks.

-ZacWilliam, all that said, I honestly prefer Peter David Hulk which is what I'd really love to see on screen...

I remember someone trying to convince me that GotG2 was going to be the stealth Planet Hulk movie.

 

Anywho, there's a lot of rumors flying around about the Marvel stuff in the wake of NYCC (Inhumans is canceled!  Inhumans isn't canceled and Vin Diesel will be Black Bolt!  Iron Fist is canceled!) so I'd take this one with a grain of salt.  Ragnarok can easily be busy enough event for a film without tossing in the Hulk too.

 

And, and just in case you guys didn't know, Universal has the distribution rights to Hulk films (and Namor films too, apparently.)  So basically Marvel could make a Hulk (or Namor) film, and they would own it and the IP, but Universal would control distribution, meaning they would need to get a cut of the profits.  That's believed to be the main reason Marvel hasn't gone through with a new Hulk film as of yet.

Hulk among the Asgardians actually makes some sense, that's a pretty clever idea.  On the other hand, Banner makes a little less sense, although I guess he can pal around with Stellan Skarsgard in between fight scenes?  (I just realized that Thor spends so much time giving exposition that his relationship with the other Avengers isn't very well-defined.)

It's a good way to give us a Hulk-centric movie alongside a Thor movie-- Thor movies tend to be slightly weaker at the box office, but give us an Avengers 2.75 (Civil War is 2.5)? Money money boo-bah.

 

Also, Mark Ruffalo is an infinitely better casting choice than Ed Norton. No contest.

 

It'll also be a Planet Hulk movie in everything but name at this point, given Thor's cosmic attachment. Maybe give us a lead-in to Guardians 2, in the bargain (or vice versa? Which is out first?).

Guardians 2 is May of 2017, Thor 2 is November of the same year. (It was July but then the Spider-Man thing happened.)

 

Slapping Planet Hulk and Ragnarok together would be a bad idea, IMO.  Planet Hulk is a very personal story at it's core; about the Hulk being betrayed, abandoned and stranded on the other side of the Universe where he ultimately finds a place where not only is he accepted, but where he can accept the fact that he's accepted.  While you could probably substitute Asgard for Sakaar in that story, I think it takes something away if Thor is there palling around with him. (And if Thor ISN'T palling around with him, then I think the Hulk would be a bad fit for a movie called "Thor: Ragnarok." in the first place :D)

 

Also, Ragnarok itself will need to take up a lot of screentime, so I'm not sure you can really do justice for both Planet Hulk and Ragnarok in a single 2.5 hour film.

I don't actually expect it to be Planet Hulky at all.
I expect it I be a Thor film with a "Buddy Picture/Fish out of Water" hulk element thrown in for fun,

-ZacWilliam, having the hulk in it is going to be less than some folks imagine. Mostly I think it'll tie up the Thor/King Loki story and the hulk will just just be a smaller side part of that story.

Perhaps, if they do set up a Planet Hulk film, instead of it being the Avengers who ship Hulk off-planet and that's why Hulk feels betrayed by them, maybe he could be shipped off-planet by a villain and his feelings of betrayal could be based on how his allies failed to save him/chose to stop a bigger threat first that prevented them from saving him. In his mind, he could view their actions as their having abandoned him instead of their failure to save him actually having been something beyond their control.

Ragnarok probably won't set up a Planet Hulk movie, if for no other reason than I doubt Marvel is going to shoe-horn in ANOTHER film before Infinity War, and Hulk will almost certainly show up there.  Afterwards we might see something, but Marvel would still need to work things out with Universal regarding distribution rights, and ultimately, Marvel has a TON of other characters who they could make a film about without needing to come to an agreement.

Honestly, this is the movie that needs to setup Thanos as a powerhouse and a full fledged character, and not just some posturing, idle guy.

 

I highly imagine a scenario where Thanos is going to take advantage of Loki's takeover to grab the Infinity stone residing in Asgard.      I'm assuming Thor eventually finds out Loki is pretending to be the All Father, brings in Bruce for obvious reasons, and then right before Loki gets another looney tune pounding....boom.   Thanos shows up and goes all Ragnorok on Asgard, requiring the three powerhouses to join forces to try to get rid of Thanos, but ultimately lose.       It would be also a get setup for something to happen with the Nova Corps in GotG2 (whether it's just a cameo thing or part of the movie itself, who knows, but there's going to be something to setup Infinity Wars).

Cool cast and cool new characters. I love the Thor movies and I love the Hulk so this should be a lot of fun.

Love seeing the concept art of Hela. Love the idea of Goldblum as that character. Love another female Marvel character. Really neat to hear we're getting Executioner at last.
