The Incredible Hulk 2 was a planned sequel to 2008's The Incredible Hulk and would have been an installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and was going to have Edward Norton, Tim Roth, and Tim Blake Nelson reprise their roles from the first film.

Plot

Bruce Banner aka the Hulk is now in control of his body must take on the Leader while also continuing his journey to find a cure.

Why It Was Cancelled

  1. While the first film was an improvement over its 2003 predecessor it became the lowest grossing film of the MCU.
  2. Edward Norton re-wrote the first film's script to establish that it was a reboot as he hated the original 2003 Ang Lee film and when the movie premiered, he choose not to market the film
  3. Abomination was planned to appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron as part of Hulk's vision but Tim Roth didn't reprise his role.
