Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk Is Shout! Factory’s Next Marvel Knights’ Feature
Shout! Factory‘s latest batch of Marvel Knights Animation motion comics have been nothing less than impressive. There was the fantastic Inhumans DVD release followed by Wolverine: Origin early this July. The next story to get the motion comic treatment will be Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk.
The 6-issue series written by Damon Lindelof with art by Lenil Francis Yu will be making the leap from the printed page to the world of home video release. The story, which was went through many delays when it was originally being published, saw Ultimate Nick Fury sending Wolverine to kill Bruce Banner after S.H.I.E.L.D. failed to end the green behemoth’s life. There was a whole deal where Hulk destroyed New York after Betty went on a date with Freddie Prinze Jr. before Fury called in Wolverine.The DVD/Blu-ray will hit September 10th and will feature similar special features as the previously released motion comics. I would guess Lindelof and Yu will provide a few words on the making of featurette. You can read the press release below. What do you think about Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk being the next Shout! Factory release?
Dr. Bruce Banner (a.k.a. the Hulk) has been presumed dead since his execution, following his murderous rampage through Manhattan as the Hulk. But when reports start cropping up of an unidentified creature appearing around the globe, Nick Fury begins to get worried. Not because Banner can turn from man to unstoppable monster in seconds, but because Banner’s existence is the one secret that can bring down Fury. So Fury turns to the only man he can trust: Wolverine. And he’s only too glad to take care of Banner – by any means necessary.
