Avengers: Infinity War didn’t really see Bruce Banner going all Hulk mode but we can expect things to change in Avengers: Endgame. Not too long ago, there has been speculation that we might be seeing a different Hulk in Endgame with the introduction of either Red Hulk or Professor Hulk. Although, it would be cool to see the Hulk in red, it looks like the latter may be more likely thanks to a recent promotional art for the upcoming film.
The promo art from Orville Redenbacher‘s website (via Reddit) showcases the O.G. six members of the Avengers including Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye and of course, the big green Hulk. However, this Hulk looks different, he is properly clothed possibly pointing to the introduction of Professor Hulk in Endgame. Check it out below:
For some who may be unfamiliar, Professor Hulk possesses the qualities of both Banner and Hulk himself. With Banner’s brains and Hulk’s physique, the professor can accomplish wonders. Fans know that and they’re expressing some excitement in seeing the big green genius in action… if this is actually going to be the case in the film. Check out some of the reactions below:
While Avengers-AoU Hulk looked more monstrous, I think Hulk is resembling Banner more because we're leaning into Professor Hulk. https://t.co/qhqo4DJUtk

Calling it: Bruce Banner and Hulk are finally going to merge into one, becoming Professor Hulk in #AvengersEndgame… It would be a cool way of concluding Banner's arc in the MCU

I have been telling my friends for years, that we would see Professor Hulk very soon. Now it's coming. Makes perfect sense. You can keep a cgi hulk, and not have to pay Ruffalo for screen time, and just use his voice. So hype for this@Marvel @MCU_Tweets https://t.co/wygqNEHc51

Having Professor Hulk would change stuff up and we might not even see Ruffalo on screen anymore after this change as highlighted by one fan. We know that Hulk and Banner are struggling with one another and this could possibly be the only way for them to patch things up so it does seem likely that the professor is what the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going for.
