Feature Detail

When it comes to direct-to-video animated films, DC definitely leads the pack. However, one of the few Marvel gems to be released in this format is Planet Hulk. Based on the comic book storyline of the same name, the story centers on the Green Goliath’s banishment to the planet Sakaar where he’s forced to compete in gladiatorial-style battle against other prisoners. Eventually, though, Hulk and his fellow captives start an uprising and overthrow the tyrannical Red King. The film strikes a perfect balance between story and action – something the live-action standalone Hulk movies have struggled with. And while Thor: Ragnarok adopted some elements of the comic book source material, Planet Hulk is a far stronger (pun intended) execution of bringing that story to screen.
