Marvel Comics upcoming movie, the Avengers: Infinity War, is still a couple of years away from its premiere but fans are already worried as to what might take place in the film as Bruce Banner, also known as the Hulk, has died in the comic version. Also, Tony Stark (Iron Man) is rumored to be absent in the movie and will be replaced by Riri Williams.
Back in the previous movies wherein The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) appeared, it was evident that the alter ego of the green monster, Bruce Banner, is not really happy with his transformation. It is mainly because every time he turns into the green guy, he loses control of his body and attacks anyone on sight.
As a result, in the latest issue of the Marvel Comics? Civil War II, Banner asked Hawkeye to shoot the Hulk if he would go on a rampage. The scientist even gives his comrade a special arrow that would kill him in an instant. Just like what he thought, the Hulk again caused a mass destruction. He blames himself for all of the negative things that happened, but Tony was there to comfort him. However, Hawkeye?s specialized arrow hit Banner?s eye and killed him immediately.
The scene also instantly worried fans from across the globe and made them think that the future of the character in Avengers: Infinity War is already uncertain. Furthermore, those who have read the issue are certainly wondering if Banner will also be killed by Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) in the upcoming movie. If ever, that would be one of the saddest scenes in the Avengers franchise.
Meanwhile, another rumor that has surfaced is that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) will not be included in the 2018 Avengers movie and will be replaced by Riri Williams, the female version of Iron Man. Downey is set to appear in the Spider-Man: Homecoming, where he is predicted to be killed. Williams will then replace him in the Infinity War, according to predictions.
In the comic version, Stark is figuring out who he really is without the Iron Man suit. Marvel writer Brian Michael Bendis also mentioned that because of the stress, the billionaire superhero will hit the road which will give way to Williams replacing him. However, the writer noted that fans should not act like they already know the ending of Civil War II, because there are still a lot that are bound to happen.
With that, fans of Banner and Stark will have something to cling on as they wish to see the two superheroes in the Avengers: Infinity War. Share your thoughts in the comment section below. The first part of the Infinity War is set to hit the big screens on May 4, 2018, and the second part on May 3, 2019.
