Christopher Markus, who wrote the Avengers: Endgame script with Stephen McFeely, revealed that the idea of including Red Hulk was considered.
” I considered the idea for about a day, ” confessed Markus, who then explained:
” If there is a future as a superhero for William Hurt, he can become Red Hulk .” In the Marvel comics, in fact, it is Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) who has the ability to transform himself into Red Hulk, a wicked version of the Hulk created by the Intellighenzia organization.
In the production processes of the MCU films, the idea of introducing this character is not new, since it was also proposed by Mark Ruffalo who had declared “it would be nice to see him sooner or later “. The actor who plays Bruce Banner thought it would be useful for the growth of the green-skinned superhero.
Kevin Feige, who said he would not change anything in Endgame, explained that this was just one of the ideas proposed by Ruffalo and that others have already been used, for example in Thor Ragnarok, in Infinity Warand in the same Endgame. He also anticipated that we might see those not yet used in the future.
By the way, William Hurt, who appeared in a cameo in Endgame, declared in 2017 that he would consider bringing the Red Hulk to the stage.
In these days, the authors of Avengers: Endgame have often returned to talk about the film, such as the final decision by Captain America and his time travel in the Multiverse .
