With 2022 just beginning, it means another year for a truckload of Marvel Studios projects. While Book of Boba Fett has the stage now, it’s sure to revert to Marvel soon enough. But what comes next? Well, there’s Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight, Tatiana Maslanay’s She-Hulk, and Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel, all of which are confirmed for a debut this year.

One of the fans’ most anticipated of the bunch is the new jolly green giant. The introduction of Jennifer Walters (She-Hulk) will be an expansion of the Hulk lore; something fans have been wanting for years.

Alongside Tatiana Maslany’s new character will be Mark Ruffalo’s original Avenger. Last audiences saw him, aside from his Shang-Chi cameo, he was recovering from his Snap in Avengers: Endgame and had just sent Steve Rogers back in time.

While his role in She-Hulk isn’t fully known, thanks to a newly backed rumor, it seems that fans might now know where his journey will end.

Hulk Takes a Trip To Space?

Hulk. She-Hulk

Industry insider and scooper MyTimeToShineHello revealed a significant event set to occur during Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ show She-Hulk.

In their tweet, they reveal that “Hulk will leave Earth at the end of She-Hulk.”

Another insider, KC Walsh, corroborated the report, adding: “A father and son round trip to get help.”

The reference to a son is likely regarding Hulk’s child Skaar, who has previously been rumored to appear.  

This rumor was first reported by the mods of the Marvel Studios Spoilers Subreddit, where they said their sources notes that one of the show's cliffhangers would be “Bruce flying off in a spaceship.”

With three different sources backing up this piece of information, it would seem that fans should prepare to see the green giant leave the Earth’s atmosphere once again.

Another Round of Space For Mark Ruffalo

This rumor certainly seems to make the reports of Skaar showing up more credible. It seems that Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner will have some parenting issues real soon.

But why go to space? If it’s “a father and son round trip,” then that would imply Skaar is already on Earth—and Bruce’s goal isn’t to find his son but rather accomplish something with him.

There’s a good chance they’re going back to Sa’Kaar since that’s where Bruce spent most of his time before Thor: Ragnarok. Maybe they’re off to help Skaar’s mother?

It’s impossible to know for sure, but if this rumor is true, it all but confirms that Marvel may be finally able to do more Hulk-focused solo projects. Those World War Hulk whispers may amount to something after all.

She-Hulk is set to premiere at an undetermined time this year exclusively on Disney+.
