As one of the most ambitious crossover events in history, Avengers: Infinity War featureda miles-long cast roster that brought together all of the corners of the sprawling MarvelCinematic Universe.Black Widow, Black Panther, Iron Man, the Guardians of the Galaxy — the whole crime-fightingcrew was there!Well, except for Hawkeye, Ant-Man, and, for the most of the movie, the Hulk.In the first few minutes of Infinity War, Thanos defeats the Hulk during a fight onthe refugee ship that fled from Asgard at the end of Thor: Ragnarok.The not-so-jolly green giant didn't appear in the film again after that— and we finallyknow why.According to the commentary track from the digital release of Avengers: Infinity War,the Hulk wasn't M.I.A. because he was ashamed that Thanos pummeled him to the ground.It's actually even more twisted than that: The Hulk is getting sick of coming to Banner'said every time he and the Avengers need assistance in the form of brute force."I have an army…""We have a hulk."Joe Russo explained:"People speculated whether there was some fear on the Hulk's part about having to faceThanos again.But I think ultimately it's that he's tired of playing hero to Bruce Banner."It's easy to see why viewers would rally behind the idea that the Hulk was in some way emotionallybruised after his scuffle with Thanos.The Hulk staying in hiding because he was feeling fear?That's not exactly a common occurrence when it comes to our temperamental green-skinnedbuddy — his whole schtick is getting angry and jumping into a fight, after all."Hulk, stop!Just for once in your life don't smash …"Big monster!"Fear is the opposite of what the Hulk is about, so it's only natural to latch onto somethingso rare.The Hulk experiencing an emotion he's rarely felt before and not fully understanding howto process it is a solid theory that makes for a satisfying character arc.But the real reason for the Hulk's absence is way more fulfilling, for two reasons.It gives Banner's alter-ego the autonomy to become more than just the muscular manifestationof Banner's dark inner disquiet, and it pushes Banner to stop relying on the Hulk to savehim from sticky situations.While many Marvel fans have believed Banner to be constantly trying to hold the Hulk in,it looks like the tables are beginning to turn as the Hulk has finally put his hugegreen foot down.Russo elaborated on that dynamic even more:"There's a host body that is being fought over by two distinct personalities who hateeach other.[...] We thought an interesting direction to take him in is, well, what if Banner, whotypically uses the Hulk to solve crisis situations, what if the Hulk were no longer interestedin solving those problems for Banner?So, the relationship is becoming increasingly dysfunctional..."Russo's explanation here shoots down all other possible reasons as to why Banner couldn'tturn into the Hulk in Infinity War — including the suggestion that he was too angry to transformor that he blamed himself for what happened on the Asgardian ship.But it also stamps out one of the more thought-provoking theories surrounding the character.Another unusual fan theory suggested that the Hulk was missing from Infinity War becauseLoki was actually masquerading as Banner.That would certainly explain why there weren't any "Hulk out" moments.But given that Russo goes on to focus specifically on Banner and the Hulk's tense relationship,that theory effectively falls apart as well.After the jaw-dropping ending of Avengers: Infinity War, we've been operating under theimpression that Avengers 4 will rip out more hearts and feature more intensity than previouslythought possible.Now, it looks like Bruce Banner and the Hulk's turbulent dynamic will be a major part ofthat chaos."Haha, you guys are screwed now."
