Fans Can’t Wait to See Harrison Ford as the Red Hulk on Screen!

Ever since the picture of Harrison Ford wearing tattered jeans surfaced on the sets of Brave New World, where he was spotted conversing with Anthony Mackie in his superhero suit, the internet erupted with excitement. Providing context to why fans speculate about the supposedly imminent Red Hulk transformation is the actor’s debut in the multiversal universe as General Thunderbolt Ross. According to the comics, Thunderbolt eventually undergoes a transformation into the Red Hulk in his storyline.

In an interview with ComicBook, the actor was questioned about the recent buzz, and his response was quite intriguing. Initially responding with “What is the Red Hulk?” when asked, upon receiving an explanation about the storyline, his answer left people in a state of ambiguity. He said,

 “Well, it may or may not,”

Therefore, while the transformation may not be evident in this particular movie, fans remain hopeful to witness it in the future.

Will Fans Ever See Clint Eastwood Wearing Any Superhero Cape At All?

Despite the uncertainty, it is certain that the fans will witness Harrison Ford’s transformation into the Red Hulk before Clint Eastwood debuts in any superhero universe. Eastwood has consistently expressed his dislike for the entire genre, reaffirming his stance numerous times. Most notably, during a 2015 Q&A session at Cinema Con, where the actor unapologetically crushed any hopes and dreams fans had of him changing his mind on the matter. He said (via,

“I read comic books when I was a kid, I don’t read them now. I prefer adult oriented stuff. I mean that in the PG-13 or R sense, but that’s as far as it goes.”

Throughout his career, the actor consistently declined various superhero roles offered to him. As much as he loved reading comic books when he was a little kid, he has no plans to star in or direct a movie based on comic book material in the near future. Namor the Sub-Mariner was the sole character that piqued his interest among the myriad superhero options, yet he remains determined in his decision to steer clear of such projects.
