Just An Idea (For Now): Incredible Hulk: Civil War?

I was mulling over this just a couple of minutes ago, I thought I’d give it it’s own thread.

Do you think it’s at all creatively plausible to combine scenes from Civil War and Ed Norton’s Incredible Hulk?

Granted, this would play havoc with established MCU continuity, and some might not take to that, but as an experimental edit it could well be doable.

The idea would be to only use about 15% or 20% of Civil War footage, with the rest of the movie being incredible Hulk. The motivations are that the army are trying to recruit Banner for Tony’s team to go after Steve Rogers and his own team per Black Widow’s suggestion (when Tony suggests if there’s “any shot” of getting him on the team to her), and we follow Banner’s adventures. In this alternate universe, Banner never left Earth and reconnects with old flame Betty Ross.

I’d still devote some time to Tony and Cap’s struggle just so there’s a complete story, and Spidey could still wind up being Banner’s substitute on the team.

The post-credit scene of the Incredible Hulk between Tony and General Ross can be repurposed for earlier in the movie, possibly at the very beginning if need be.

I’d try to at least end the film with Bruce and Betty together and on the run. The final scene could be the “not even a little excited?” love making scene at the end.

Other possibilities I’ve tried out (can’t upload samples for now because of Vimeo storage limit)

-Open the movie with Zemo reading from the winter soldier codebook in the hotel, just to explain what Bucky means by the
“saying the god damn words” later when Steve captures him.

-Have Zemo give Ross access to super soldier serums he finds in the compound

I got some good feedback for this on reddit, so I’m looking to release it in February.
