A new report seemingly confirms the Incredible Hulk will don some skintight Spandex for Marvel's Avengers 4. Although the Green Goliath sat out most of Avengers: Infinity War, it sounds as if he'll receive a Titan-smashing upgrade to help the surviving heroes to try and topple Thanos.
Hulk's potential armor was teased recently in some leaked Avengers 4 promo art, but it has been taken with a pinch of salt until now. Fans may remember that Bruce Banner's angry alter ego wore metallic protection in Thor: Ragnarok. However, he is set for another distinct look in the upcoming Avengers sequel.
Appearing this week at CineEurope 2018 in Barcelona, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige gave audiences a sneak peek at Avengers 4 and Captain Marvel. What fans saw is being kept secret for now, but posting on Twitter, journalist Nikita Byrkin confirmed and debunked several of those Avengers 4 footage rumors. But he said the Hulk will definitely get new armor.

With Marvel skipping a Hall H presentation next month at Comic-Con International in San Diego, CineEurope is likely to be the only Avengers 4 footage that will be screened for a while. For those who missed Hulk in Infinity War, Hulk is poised to return in a big way. Given that the leaked art also hinted at some new armor for Thanos himself, the two heavy-hitters could go head to head in an armor-plated showdown when Avengers 4 hits theaters on May 3, 2019.
In theaters now, Avengers: Infinity War is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Tom Hiddleston and Josh Brolin.
