Just how close was Joss Whedon to unveiling Grey Hulk during Age of Ultron? Really freakin’ close.
We are now learning that, like most movies, Avengers 2: Age of Ultron left many things on it’s cutting room floor. While it appears that some major things may see the light of day, one interesting detail has surfaced that will make all Hulk fans, well, a little grey.
During what is probably one of the best scenes in the film Hulk goes head-to-head with Tony Stark and his Hulkbuster armor, all because Banner had his mind messed with by Scarlet Witch. What happens? Hulk goes crazy…..really really crazy, and sets out to do some major damage to everything around him.
But what was the initial plan? To take it way farther; Hulk was so angry he was going to transform into Grey Hulk.
So what happened?
Mike Seymour, reporting for Wired, learns this:
Initially, Hulk was actually planned to turn grey when he’s angry Hulk in the Hulkbuster sequence but hey, everybody wanted the green guy. So, in the end, ILM just changed his eyes to make them look more sullen when he’s under the control of Scarlet Witch.
The real question is just how close were they to actually releasing the Grey guy?
