Marvel will begin Phase Two of its cinematic universe with "Iron Man 3" in May. But now, LatinoReview is claiming that it knows some details of "The Avengers 2," as well as Phase Three and the studio's plans for The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Since none of this has been confirmed, consider it a rumor.
According to the site, "The Avengers 2" will feature the comic book version of the Illuminati, a secret group comprised of Doctor Strange, Black Bolt, Charles Xavier, Reed Richards, Namor and Iron Man. Since Marvel can't use some of those characters, the structure of the group will likely change.
At the end of "The Avengers 2," the Illuminati will decide that The Hulk is simply too dangerous and will banish him from Earth into space. In Phase Three we'll see a new Hulk movie, which will follow the storyline of "Planet Hulk," in which the banished Hulk finds himself a gladiator on an alien world.
The end of Phase Three will result in "The Avengers 3," which will feature Hulk's return. That storyline will follow "World War Hulk," in which the Hulk returns to Earth to get revenge on those who sent him away.
"Planet Hulk," which is very similar to "John Carter," was previously adapted into a direct-to-DVD animated movie in 2010. Check out the trailer for it below.
The only way they could probably justify banishing The Hulk is if The Red Hulk appears in the next film and decimates half of the planet, probably summoned by Thanos. It'll be the Empire Strikes Back of the trilogy- gotta end the second movie on a sad note.. However I don't know the back story on that other brute at all, so ...
Listened to that video blog entry. I wouldn't even call it a rumor. It's a terrible theory just because those two Hulk comics were all sold out in New York. This information plus standing in fromt of the Marvel building doesn't work as a prove for me. Not convincing at all.

"Since none of this has been confirmed, consider it a rumor."
Nah. I'm a gonna do what everyone else does. I'm a gonna take it as fact, spread it all over the internet as such, and then when my fact is shown to be false, I'm a gonna pretend I never said anything at all.
"Since Marvel can't use some of those characters"
Because FOX has exclusive rights? *Le sigh*.
In short: Smells like Teen Spirit to me, and by teen I mean bull, and by spirit I mean sh*t.
What's the point of including a Thanos after credits scene if this is the case? I reckon it's bullsh*t.

I'm not meaning money, but no credit at all for Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Who wrote the original Carter series of novels, which the people behind the movie version completely f*cked it up.
What a trashy f*cked up flick they got there. A tremendous huge amount of sterile sh*t that not even a very powerful alchemist or even nature can have a fine use of its minerals to get something productive out of it.
f*ck Hollywood and all its movies and its tons of money.
Trying to demand reason in a superhero movie is like asking for dinner before you get porked in the chili hole. If Guardians does well visually, this movie won't be a stretch.
Too many people enjoyed the Hulk in the Avengers so given the opportunity to see him rip not one, but two worlds a new ass would be pretty brutal & long-awaited.
More problems would come from whether or Ruffalo gets screentime or not.
It makes more sense to push towards World War Hulk though, skipping all of this. Why dance around a fear of the Hulk & just let him go berserk for a different reason, like being separated from Banner or something.

f*ckin Dope! A Hulk movie without Banner is exactly what I wanna see! I hope to God/Satan that if Banner is in this it's not f*ckin Ruffalo!
I wonder who he'll fight instead of Silver Surfer.?
