It's not secret by now that Hulk was utterly useless in Infinity War. From getting utterly destroyed by the Mad Titan to failing to pop up on two separate occasions when a gamma-powered brute would have been useful, the audience is left to wonder... would he actually have been useful? Now I ask you, how would the Hulk have been written in the Battle of Wakanda? Assume the following applies:
- The Hulk breaks out of the Hulkbuster when the Hulkbuster falls to the Outriders, right before Thor arrives.
- In this hypothetical, assume Thor arrives two minutes later than he does in the movie.
I had this conversation on Discord and maybe two people took it seriously. My personal thoughts:
I think they'd have written him to temporarily give the heroes an advantage with thunderclaps, then when we see everyone start to get overwhelmed, he's the only one not getting overwhelmed. Like he'd be slaughtering Outriders left and right, everyone around him is getting overwhelmed, Thor lands and Hulk is the only one who doesn't need saving.
