Despite the Avengers managing to save the universe and bring everyone back against all odds, people were still quick to highlight how that could trigger issues in itself.
One of potential risks that people put forward, was how The Hulk’s snap could have returned a lot of people to dangerous situations that they left when Thanos made them vanish.
So think about people who were flying in airplanes, driving cars, that kind of thing – where would they have been returned to?
Well Kevin Feige has cleared up and worries, while participating in an Ask Me Anything on Reddit.
Basically, due to The Hulk now being Smart Hulk, he wasn’t just strong enough to wield the gauntlet and survive, he was also able to put people back in safe places.
The revelation came when one user wrote:
“Hi Kevin, thanks for doing the AMAA!
People have expressed views that, in Endgame, those brought back by the snap could have died in accidents (like someone being brought back 100 ft in the air where a plane used to be). Is it possible that Hulk, when doing the snap, not only brought everyone back, but also brought them back in a safe place?
Thanks and have a good one!”
Feige agreed with the idea, confirming that “We refer to the version of Hulk in Endgame as Smart Hulk. So, yes.”
Meanwhile the Endgame directors recently opened up about what the future may hold for The Hulk.
Joe Russo spoke about the injuries he sustained in the last movie: “He’s lost an arm,”
“He lost Natasha. That’s not coming back. He’s damaged himself. I don’t know. It’s interesting. That’s permanent damage, the same way that it was permanent damage with Thanos. It’s irreversible damage. His arm, if you noticed, is a lot skinnier. It’s blackened. So, he loses a lot of strength there.”
He did add that thanks to advanced technologies and supernatural abilities, it doesn’t necessarily mean Hulk’s smashing days are behind him.
“But who knows? There’s a lot of smart people left,” he says. “Maybe someone helps him repair that. Maybe someone gives him a new arm. I have no idea where that character goes from here. The nice thing is we didn’t have to pay attention to where it goes after this, we just try to tell a satisfying ending.”
