We all know Hulk as the lovable Green Goliath that he is...but he didn't start out that way.
Thats right! For all you who don't know, the Incredible Hulk first appeared as a massive gray Hulk. It wasn't until a few issues in where a printing error occurred, resulting in Hulk being colored in green all throughout. Unable to fix the problem in time, Marvel went forward with Banner as a green Hulk, not explaining it until later on.
Eventually it is revealed that there are various types of Hulks that Bruce Banner can turn into, coming in all different colors, shapes, sizes, and even intelligence levels.
Knowing that, seeing this recently advertised image from Funko Pop!, featuring all new Avengers 2: Age of Ultron Pop! figures, should make you raise an eyebrow.
This image, posted on PopVinyls.com, features the grey Hulk alongside his fellow Avengers and Ultron. Typically with toys connected to a release, they don’t necessarily match what ends up happening in the film. However, given that the other vinyl figures shown are all in the film and wearing their respective costumes, it does beg the question whether we’ll see Hulk change from green to gray at some point during the story. There are two possibilities that come to mind:
It’s been speculated that Scarlet Witch will cast a spell on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes that will trap them in their own, unique hallucinations (like Captain America and Black Widow experiencing flashbacks). Perhaps Hulk’s hallucination will put him in a strange scenario where he’ll turn gray, and judging by the figure being called "Savage Hulk," the grey version is more out of control than his normal self…and that’s saying a lot! There’s also the chance that Hulk will actually undergo a physical transformation into the grey monster. At a closer look, you can see that this Hulk has the same red eyes as the green one had in the most recent trailer. That can’t be good for anybody.
Whether he does turn gray or will remain his natural shade of green, you can see The Hulk in live-action when Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1st.
