Now that Marvel has wrested control of their film properties comic book geeks are beginning to see the dividends with the formation of the Marvel Universe on film. We saw this first with Iron Man where at the end Nick Fury makes an appearance and mentions The Avengers and now with next weeks The Incredible Hulk we are seeing a crossover with Tony Stark.
It was supposed to be a non-secret that Tony Stark would appear briefly in the film, but with the success of Iron Man, Marvel is wasting no opportunity to cash in on that success and parlay it to help out The Incredible Hulk. Will it work? Maybe, but it’s great to see Tony Stark appear in the film and with all the easter eggs dropped throughout the latest Marvel adventure it is obvious they are building towards an Avengers movie with all of these characters appearing in one film.
The Incredible Hulk smashes into theaters on June 13.
