New toys from Funko and Hasbro are definitely pointing a possible change in the script to Avengers: Infinity War.
It is not unusual for there to be minor inconsistencies between films and the merchandise that is released. When multiple companies have a similar product, however, you have to think that at some point there was a change in the script.
When Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) gets in the Hulkbuster armor, it seems like the perfect time for him to Hulk out, bursting out of the armor. But, that never happens and it feels like a missed opportunity.
Pouring even more salt into this wound is the fact Hasbro has sent out information on the Hulk Out Hulkbuster toy. Want even more pain? Funko has a figure of the missed moment as well.
It looks as though this was a moment that was going to happen at one point, but somewhere along the process, it was removed from the film. It would have been an awesome sight to see, but it was never meant to be.
At least we can live it out via plastic figures?
