This story is most definitely a rumor, so keep that in mind.
But according to We Got This Covered, there is a possibility that the Hulk will be killed off in the upcoming Disney+ She-Hulk series.
“(Mark)Ruffalo is set to have a recurring role in She-Hulk, one that will eventually see him being killed off in a future season as he sacrifices himself to defend cousin Jennifer Walters from the Red Hulk.”
So yet another Phase One member could be removed. We have already lost Black Widow, and frankly giving her a prequel movie now is a bit insulting. They should have given her a movie years ago. We also lost Tony Stark, who now is rumored to return as an AI, how about just not kill him? Captain America is now old.
Over in Disneyland they are pretending “The Snap” never happened, with their Avengers Campus. They will still have Iron Man, Black Widow and Captain America as they were before Thanos showed up.
We already knew we weren’t likely to get a Hulk solo film because of the rights being tied up with Universal, but now they might kill him off. Honestly, if he’s like he was in “End Game” it might be a mercy killing.
But there is controversy surrounding She-Hulk already
The writer of the show, Dana Schwartz, has come under fire lately for her Tweeting habits where’s she compared Coronavirus to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and hetero husbands to Oscar the Grouch.
She did delete her Tweet about Star Wars, but here’s what it said:
“COVID-19 is going to be like Rise of Skywalker. It’s a nightmare. It’s going to be a struggle. But then we’re going to get to come out the other side and pretend it never happened. Also, we’re not going to be able to fully grasp what went done without reading a ton of extra literature.”

She has one constant with her tweets, she appears to have an issue with men and that’s a bit problematic as a large part of the Marvel audience is men.
My favorite thing about Ralph Breaks the Internet is that it figured out who the real villain of the internet is: insecure, needy men who think women belong to them https://t.co/r3TBzDvKzl

Call me crazy, but with all the issues Disney’s facing right now, having a writer constantly bash men and stir-up as much controversy as they can, including bashing Star Wars, is probably not a good idea. Maybe, with jobs and projects being cut, this might not be a good time to behave this way.
Right now this is not looking like it’s going to go over very well. The Disney+ show could see the end of The Incredible Hulk, and it’s being written by someone who is posting sexist tweets on Twitter. I know a lot of people were looking forward to it, and lately a lot of people are saying they won’t watch it now because of the writer’s behavior, and that was before this rumor.
Maybe Disney and Marvel should re-think some of this moving forward. Now is NOT the time to push away audiences. Especially when the company is losing money like it is.
Of course the part about the Hulk dying is just a rumor, the rest of it is not.
