Sweet, I'm excited, I really enjoyed the comic, and Lionsgate has been improving immensely lately (UA1&2 were awful, Invinvible Iron Man was ok, Dr. Strange was great, Next Avengers was a huge stumble, Hulk Vs. was pretty good)

Trailer was really cool too, looks like they're trying to stay authentic to the story

gives me hope for the "Thor: Son of Asgard" movie thats coming

Looks good. I want more Hulk films after the last live action film and think this will help pass the time before Avengers.

Hulk Vs. was pretty good

Was it? My standards for animated films must be too high. I thought it was awful.

It looks interesting, but to be honest Marvel's animated movies have been pretty lame so far

UA1&2 were awful,

I agree

Invinvible Iron Man was ok, Dr. Strange was great, Next Avengers was a huge stumble,

I never saw them. That's how bad Ultimate Avengers 1&2 were.

Hulk Vs. was pretty good

I picked this up used for $10 (Canadian) and for that price i was satisfied.

Trailer was really cool too, looks like they're trying to stay authentic to the story

I wonder if it will have the Silver Gladiator or whatever (Silver Surfer)

I don't think so. But then again there are a bunch that I haven't seen (Dr. Strange and Iron Man to name two). I haven't even watched Ultimate Avengers 2 and I have it. Ultimate Avengers wasn't that bad. Not really good, but not that bad.

Most of any DTVs I've seen are crap, with the possible exception of New Frontier.

Silver Savage.

And the first UA was pretty good. The second, not so much.

Don't watch Iron Man, the live action movie is way better. These DTVs are alright, I kinda liked Wonder woman, they aren't the best cartoons in the world, but trust I have seen cartoons far worse, like the 90s Avengers cartoons or Spider-Man Unlimited.

So, Planet Hulk wasn't very good as a comic, but I mean, the premise is interesting. I think it could work really well in an animated format as long as they get a good creative staff behind it and just run with the general premise rather than hewing to the source material.

It's your one way ticket to midnight, call if Heavy Metal! Higher than high, feeling just right, call it Heavy Metal! Desperation on a red line, call it Heavy Metal!

Really I hate the premise just because I've seen it a thousand times. Really the whole "character gets enslave, force to find as a gladiator then escapes to free the warriors and change the culture." is used a lot

I think here, the story isn't important so much as the visuals are. It can be a retread just so long as it looks interesting. Hulk is a very visceral character, and I think strong visualization could pretty well hold the film on its own.

I would LOVE to see Planet Hulk done as a Heavy Metal style pastiche, with the Hulk's story framing a series of short stories (Think a variety of alien gladiator slaves each relating a story in between their matches). Mix in a bit of the old ultra-violence and a hard soundtrack and you have something potentially great.

While I agree that Planet Hulk wasn't very original, I liked it just because it gave Hulk some much needed character work.

I couldn't get into Planet Hulk. I found it really boring and I couldn't get past the idea of why it had come about. The Illuminati send Hulk into space because he went on a rampage. Hasn't he rampaged thousands of times before? Why just now? And why is shooting him into space the best option? Why not combine their resources to try and cure him, confine him, help him somehow?

Who cares what the route is to get the story there, as long as you have an excuse for wicked combat between Hulk and all sorts of bizarre aliens? Plus, space-girls in chain mail bikinis!

I guess all I'm saying is, it doesn't matter how the comic worked out just so long as the high concept is still solid. And I think it is.

That is, unless it's been announced that it will be following the comic book storyline closely, in which case, yeah, it probably will suck.

I'm really hoping it does not end with a sequel hook for World War Hulk. That would just be stupid, especially because World War Hulk was massively overrated.
