It's not a solo Hulk film, but a Brazilian car commercial has fans cheering as the big, green always angry Avenger saves the day.
In the commercial for automaker Renault a man on his commute pulls up to a stoplight. He glances to his left and notices a Hulk poster just as news breaks on the radio that there's a satellite heading straight for the city. Suddenly, the Hulk appears and races down the street beside the man's car glancing at him as if to say, "come help me save the day" and the man takes off in his car. Hulk bounds around on his way to intercept the satellite while the man races through the city to get to his love who is presumably in the very building the rogue satellite is menacing.
The race against time shows off the features of the car while the greenest Avenger shows off his heroic skills. Hulk leaps up and smashes the satellite just as our ordinary hero pulls up in time to comfort his girlfriend. The spot ends with the guy behind the wheel of his Renault startled back to reality by his phone ringing. His girlfriend wants to know where he is. You can watch the spot above.
If the commercial feels like a short Avengers film there's good reason. The visual effects company Framestore has a history of working on elements of the MCU, notably being responsible for bringing Vision to life in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Framework's creative director Ben West told Animation World Network that their previous work with Marvel helped in the creation of the authentic feeling commercial.
"Animating characters requires an intimate level of experience and understanding of performance. Each character has signature qualities but it's the detail and nuance that brings them to life," West said. "Having worked with characters like Hulk over an extended period for film projects, we had a strong foundation to build upon in this regard."
While we still wish we were getting a standalone Hulk film hopefully the commercial, which is airing on television and movies across Brazil, will be just enough to hold us over until we can get our Hulk fix in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok.
