Fans have always shown excitement towards the potential of a World War Hulk film. When it comes to Mark Ruffalo, the actor, despite his ongoing extended run within the franchise, has not yet had the privilege of starring in a solo film of his own, centered around the ginormous, gamma-infused green giant. While there is no confirmation as of yet when such a project would be undertaken and see its release, rumors have continued to plague the town ever since the seeds of the speculated premise were planted within the MCU narrative — thanks to several Easter eggs.

Now, as fans gear up for a potential announcement regarding the rumored film in the future, many on Twitter voiced how they would love to see Zack Snyder make his MCU directorial debut and tackle the much-discussed and anticipated World War Hulk project.

A fan on Twitter brought to everyone’s attention how the acclaimed and DC fan-favorite director, Zack Snyder once mentioned how he is a fan of the Hulk. This particular incident took place in 2021. While sitting for Wired’s Autocomplete Interview, the director answered a common question on Google: does Zack Snyder like Marvel? To this, Snyder had the following to say:

“I do like Marvel. I like Marvel movies and I like Marvel comics. The Hulk has always been one of my favorites, forever, and Iron Man. The answer is yes, I do like Marvel.”

Following this revelation, fans are of the opinion that the man, who is credited for directing notable films such as 300, Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, etc. would be perfect for a layered character like Bruce Banner, who has a lot of unresolved trauma that the world has yet to dive deep into. A man of Snyder’s creative stature would critically navigate the depth of the Hulk.

One such user on Twitter pointed to how a 300-esque World War Hulk film would feel stupendously magnificent. 300, which was based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel, was a violent, gore-y, and powerful premise. With Snyder’s stylistic spin, many consider the adaptation an exciting and entertaining watch.

Whether Kevin Feige would ever allow such a take on Hulk’s character is not known. However, owing to Zack Snyder’s fashion of directing, it would live up to the promise of a dark, gritty endeavor that many Marvel fans have been praying for.

Fans Believe Zack Snyder Would Do Justice To The Hulk’s Depiction

While Zack Snyder would have to work within the confines of PG-13 boundaries, many believe that the director would be a great choice to lead Hulk’s redemption within the franchise. In recent years, many MCU fans have expressed disappointment over how the latest iteration of Mark Ruffalo‘s Hulk has been reduced to mostly comic relief.

Following the release of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, some affirmed how the superhero who was once depicted as a colossal behemoth, has been completely nerfed, seemingly overpowered by his cousin, Jennifer Walters.

Therefore, many believe if Zack Snyder were to lead a World War Hulk project, he would do justice to the destructive scale of the Worldbreaker’s powers. What the majority has ascertained is how the director would at least take the character seriously.

Following is what the fans believe:

Whether people love him or hate him, there is no denying that a solo Hulk project directed by Zack Snyder would perhaps open the door to great narrative possibilities, with fans getting the chance to rejoice in a side of the green goliath they probably haven’t seen before.

For now, such hypothetical scenarios are mere speculations; a result of wishful thinking. Marvel Studios have yet to announce whether they would move forward with a World War Hulk film in the first place. The future shall reveal whether the fans of Hulk would have something fruitful to look forward to.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, which featured Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, is available for streaming on Disney+.
