Avengers: Endgame is still more than 2 months away from us and every MCU fanboy will agree with the fact that we haven’t seen enough footage for the film. We still await a second trailer which will supposedly amp up the hype that already surrounds the film. Considering how big this film will be, Marvel doesn’t need to give a whole lot away as people would turn up anyway, but our inner fanboys would want that footage at any cost.
The effect of the two dozes that Marvel has provided us is running out and we need an extra dosage for our trailer hungry souls. But what’s really amazing about these trailers is that they are giving out mere stills from the movie, and not the entirety of scenes. So, these stills are just teasing various end results without actually giving them away. We’ve got an idea of what these end results would be through the bazillion theories and leaks that have surfaced online.
But how these so-called “End Results” will be achieved is a whole new story. One of these ultimate results of the movie is Professor Hulk. We know that we will get to see this form of The Hulk where Banner gets control of the brains and Hulk expresses his brawns in a synchronized way. Infinity War teased the issues that the Hulk is facing, but how those issues will be solved to give us Professor Hulk remains to be a mystery.
According to a new theory coming from Reddit user StripplefitzParty, instead of getting help from the likes of Shuri, the Hulk’s insane abilities will be unlocked by someone more capable of these big wonders. Here’s what the Redditor proposes:
“I’ve seen the theory that Shuri might play a pivotal role in either recreating Vision or performing a procedure on Bruce, so that he becomes Prof. Hulk. However, after Mark Ruffalo’s comment about working on set with Tilda Swinton’s Ancient One, I believe this could be how Bruce becomes Prof. Hulk.
We witnessed a lot of sorcery from the Ancient One in Doctor Strange in battles with Kaecilius and his followers, but the one scene that makes me think she can do more in terms of unlocking inner potential is when she took Strange on the cosmic, astral joy ride. At one point, Strange’s body is shown to have layers that are taken apart from one another and then reassembled.
Almost every single theory/leak about A4 has indicated that time travel will occur, and one really interesting one is Bruce going back in time with other Avengers, and while the others attempt to perform some time-travel espionage Bruce goes to the Sanctum Santorum to talk with Doctor Strange because he fell through his roof the first time they met in IW. However, because at the time of the Battle of New York, Doctor Strange had not started his magical journey at Kamar Taj, so the Sanctum would be guarded by another sorcerer and would likely take Bruce to the Ancient One upon hearing his knowledge.
It would be here that the Ancient One learns not only about Thanos’ actions and the mission the Avengers are on but also about Bruce’s condition and does some magical therapy to bind the two spiritual forms of Hulk and Bruce together so they can cooperate as one physically.”
It is strange how the answers we have been seeking all this time are there right in front of us. Ruffalo revealed that he really enjoyed working with Tilda Swinton, and since then we have been trying to figure out a certain possibility where Banner and the Ancient One could be together in a room. Now that the Reddit user has pointed out, it totally makes sense.
If these two have to share a scene then it is entirely possible that the Ancient One will be the one who helps out Hulk. So, the answer for the Hulk Conundrum actually lies in Magic instead of science. According to MCU, Magic is just the science we haven’t understood yet. So, technically it is science. But who cares!
Avengers: Endgame comes out on April 26.
