Here’s Why Hulk Hates Banner In Age Of Ultron

Age Of Ultron

Age Of Ultron Updates: The Hulk losses his control just by hearing the name “Bruce Banner” in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but what is the reason behind this?

Let us look into it. Both Hulk and Bruce Banner had a problematic relationship in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which became more apparent in Age of Ultron – but what is the exact reason behind the hate between Hulk and Banner?

The Hulk doesn’t exactly have the best alterations to the big screen, the first one is in the year 2003 by being Hulk which was directed by Ang Lee, and the Bruce Banner role was played by Eric Bana, this was a hit movie but wasn’t received by the movie critics.

After this, in the year 2008, they came up with The Incredible Hulk, but the role of Banner was played by Edward Norton, even though it was a big box office hit than the previous one, but it is still one of the weakest movies of MCU.

Banner went through a recast for The Avengers, which makes the debut of Mark Ruffalo as a scientist who can change into a big muscular being that appears in green color.

Hulk/Banner went on to appear in Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War, and the End Game, and they are set to come back in the MCU’s phase 4 in the TV show named She-Hulk.

Why Hulk hates Banner in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Even though he was appearing in all these movies, the character of Hulk wasn’t fully developed, leaving all this, fans are demanding more and asking questions and details about the character which was not explained, one of those questions is Why Hulk hates Banner in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The MCU has used Marvel’s Real Hulk only once as we all know, these two had a very problematic relation, with Banner trying to get rid of the Hulk, he even tried many times to kill himself only to show that the bullet was spit by Hulk.

The issue between them was more apparent in Avengers: Age of Ultron, pointedly in the scene where Banner lets the Hulk come out after Scarlet Witch which played with his mind, causing him to run away and to create Chaos in the streets of a town called Johannesburg.

After this, Tony Stark used the Hulkbuster to bring Banner back, but when Hulk hears the name “banner”, he reacts aggressively within seconds, so Tony Stark was reminding himself not to mention the name “puny Banner”.

Avengers: Age of Ultron was failed to explain why the Hulk is so angry with Banner, instead of concentrating on his relation with Black Widow, but the comics bring an answer for this.

The reason behind it is The Hulk sees Banner as a pushover, and it is actually an understandable issue because both of them are two opposite personalities inhabiting one body: Banner who is driven by science and reason, but Hulk is a person who is all about emotions and his bad temper, even we saw him as a childlike personality in the other movies as happened in Thor: Ragnarok.

In addition to that, Bruce Banner has worked very hard to take control over Hulk or to get rid of him, so we can get an answer to the question of why Hulk doesn’t like Banner.

Hulk getting to lose control of his anger when hearing “Banner” in Avengers: Age of Ultron is a hint at the dichotomy between Hulk and Banner seen in the comics and MCU has failed to explain which was done by the comics.

The character Hulk is one of the least developed in the MCU and each of his screen appearances makes the audiences to feels like a completely different character, and in Avengers: Endgame both Hulk and Banner became one, making a way for “Smart Hulk” and giving an end to their conflict, but that also gave the fans the freedom make their own ways about their conflict.
