Marvel planning a new Hulk into MCU:
Phase 4 is going to be all about embracing the new. The Black Widow movie will bring in a second Black Widow i.e. Yelena Belova. The Eternals & Black Knight will be new MCU heroes. Shang-Chi again is a new hero and following that WandaVision will bring Monica Rambeau aka Photon, Doctor Strange 2 will surely involve new heroes using the Multiverse, Thor: Love And Thunder going to bring the Mighty Thor and the Hawkeye series will have Kate Bishop. Then there are Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk & Moon Knight, Blade, Namor & Nova who are also confirmed. But apparently, another version of Hulk is also coming in.
We know for sure that the She-Hulk series will bring back Mark Ruffalo’s Smart Hulk and it will introduce Jennifer Walters as the new version of Hulk that will take on the mantle. And it would really make sense for these two Hulk cousins to fight Red Hulk and/or abomination. But apparently, WGTC reports that Marvel is also planning to bring another version of Hulk, and it’s gonna be Amadeus Cho.
We understand that Mark Ruffalo’s time in the MCU might be coming to an end. Either the She-Hulk series or some other movie will give him a worthy exit from the MCU. But Marvel surely needs a true green rage monster at all times. And so, the Asian version of the Green Goliath is being planned to be brought in. For those who’re uninitiated, here’s how Wikipedia describes him:
“A 19-year-old Korean American genius who’s the eighth smartest person on Earth, Cho succeeded Bruce Banner as the Hulk in The Totally Awesome Hulk #1 (2015). In contrast with Banner, who found his Hulk powers to be a burden, Cho is a confident character who revels in his newfound abilities.”
One major fact that people need to know about Amadeus Cho is that he is the son of Helen Cho. We saw Helen Cho in Avengers: Age of Ultron but it didn’t really seem that she’d be a mother of a 10-11-year-old. In MCU’s timeline, it has been 8 years Age of Ultron, so even if her son Amadeus was 10 in Age of Ultron, he’d be ready to make a debut. But to fix this Helen Cho age problem, Marvel could actually make Amadeus her younger brother.
They have done this in the past. Loki was the father of Hela, and in the MCU, we saw her as Odin’s first born. So, making Amadeus Cho the brother of Helen Cho would fix everything and Marvel will be ready to have a young version of the Hulk. He could connect with the Young Avengers, and also be a part of other crossovers. But still, all of this has to be taken as a pinch of salt because it comes from We Got This Covered. They are popular for throwing out a whole lot of rumors but only a few of them come true. So, let’s see what happens.
Marvel’s future is huge and there’s a lot that could happen. Black Widow is going to kick off the future slate on May 1. Here’s how the rest of the Phase 4 slate looks like – The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in Fall 2020, The Eternals on November 6, 2020, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on February 12, 2021, WandaVision in Spring 2021, Loki in Spring 2021, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness on May 7, 2021, Spider-Man 3 on July 16, 2021, What If? In Summer 2021, Hawkeye in Fall 2021, and Thor: Love and Thunder on November 5, 2021. Following these are Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk. Black Panther 2 has been scheduled for May 6, 2022.
