Fans desirous to be taught each element about Avengers: Endgame continues in a time when quarantine permits some new deep-dives. In some circumstances, a few of that new reanalysis has refreshing and considerate concepts. Other instances, it simply turns into trivia solely essentially the most ardent fan needs to know.
One of these current particulars pertains to Hulk. While it would give Hulk followers feeling to know persons are nonetheless speaking about him after being despatched packing, this scene includes one thing he threw throughout an emotional tirade.
Case in level is the scene the place Hulk throws a park bench into the air throughout a pivotal second in Endgame. Fans need to know the place that bench ended up falling. The Russo Brothers lately revealed who was doubtless on the receiving finish.
Remembering again to Hulk throwing the park bench
Those who bear in mind this scene will bear in mind it concerned 5 of the unique Avengers crew mourning the demise of Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow). Following her seemingly sacrificial demise in Endgame, these 5 members paid their respects in a park setting, with every displaying their very own specific emotion.
A memorable meme of this scene likened the 5 Avengers to the 5 levels of grief. Thor represented denial, Hulk was anger, Clint was bargaining, Steve was melancholy, and Tony represented acceptance.
Because Hulk was about frustration, he subsequently picked up a heavy park bench and flung it into the air, touchdown someplace in a close-by forested space. There was by no means a cutaway exhibiting the place the bench landed, although.
At the time, it was by no means thought of essential. Well, not till followers needed to know who might need had the bench land on them. Only on social media would such a query be requested.
The Russo Brothers gave a midway severe reply in a current Q&A
Recently, a person on Reddit posted a thread concerning the Russos answering the Hulk/park bench query throughout a current on-line Q&A chat. The Q&A occurred on Twitter the place the Russos answered choose questions straight.
When somebody requested the place the park bench landed, the Russos had a fast reply: It landed on…Frank Castle. Of course, Castle is The Punisher and was performed by Jon Bernthal within the authentic Netflix collection.
The reply of Castle being on the receiving finish of the bench was doubtless taken in jest by most individuals. Others may contemplate it canonical because it got here from the Russos themselves.
On Reddit, followers joked they might think about listening to Frank Castle’s yell simply because the bench hit him. Others wished this actually was canon, even when nobody knew whether or not Frank died within the snap.
Would this pave the street to Frank Castle returning later?
Lots of followers of The Punisher have been sorely upset when Netflix canceled the collection again in 2019. While the present by no means had Castle interacting with The Avengers, including an Easter egg scene of Frank being hit by Hulk’s park bench would show fairly the reentrance.
Being a tough-as-nails vigilante as he was, he doubtless would have recovered quick after being hit by the bench. On the opposite hand, having the bench touring at excessive pace may kill some other bystander. All the random issues Hulk throws are seldom proven touchdown, proving extreme accidents may occur with any regular mortals strolling across the periphery.
The Russo Brothers’ response was perhaps a delicate nod to the complaints concerning the Marvel TV/streaming universe by no means connecting with the MCU films. Imagining Frank Castle coming into the realm of The Avengers in some unspecified time in the future could be a minimum of one connective string.
If it ever does occur, it will doubtless simply be a fast cameo to show Frank was within the space. Should the bench knock him out, it might clarify why he by no means took half within the NYC-based Battle of Earth.
