There is a growing rumor that a standalone Hulk movie is in the works. Many fans are being led to believe that the film will follow Marvel Comic’s “Planet Hulk” storyline. Marvel along with Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo are denying these rumors. However, director James Gunn just posted an image from his Instagram account, which clearly shows two Sakaaran soldiers emerging from their “Necrocraft” for the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy.” The planet Sakaara and its inhabitants feature prominently in the “Planet Hulk” story arc.
