Kevin Feige Says Marvel Is Not Planning A Planet Hulk Movie

Not yet anyway...
IGN reports that Kevin Feige has denied rumors that Marvel is planning a film adaptation of the "Planet Hulk" storyline.
When asked about adapting a storyline that features only the Hulk and not Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Feige replied: "Well that's why there are no plans for Planet Hulk anytime soon. I think what's cool about the Planet Hulk story is it's all Hulk. He's a gladiator, he's fighting all these creatures on another world. Yes, some of those creatures show up in [Guardians of the Galaxy], which makes people think, 'Oh, maybe it could exist.' And maybe it could exist, someday. I don't think that's the first place we would go though for the very reason that you stated, which is, if we were ever able to do a standalone Hulk movie, 60 percent of the fun would be seeing Mark Ruffalo leading a Marvel movie -- and that's what we would do if we ever went down that road. "
However, Feige didn't deny a possible "Hulk in space" or a Banner/Hulk movie.
He added: "After the first Avengers, Iron Man had his own movie, Thor had his own movie, Captain America had his own movie, and Widow and Fury were in The Winter Soldier. So it was really about, frankly, saving somebody so that the only place you could get Hulk between Avengers movies is the next Avengers movie, so [director Joss Whedon] could continue to play with that in [The Avengers: Age of Ultron]. Where we go after that, we'll see."
