Unlike the other heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Hulk was left with an ambiguous ending when everything wrapped up. After tossing Ultron out of the Quinjet, instead of turning the plane around to meet back up with his teammates, the Green Goliath opted to stay aboard so that he won't be able to cause anymore harm. According to Nick Fury, the plane eventually crash-landed near Fiji, but because of the stealth technology on board, it couldn’t be tracked, leaving Hulk’s current whereabouts a mystery.

Fast-forward to what Marvel has coming up. Earlier today, the main cast of Captain America: Civil War was announced, and while the movie is filled with a lot of familiar superhero faces, Hulk is nowhere to be seen. This isn’t much of a surprise given how busy the movie will be, but it does beg the question: what does Hulk being left out mean for his future in the MCU? Aside from Joss Whedon saying that Marvel’s plans for Hulk are "too amazing," the studio is staying cagey about what’s in store for him. With that in mind, here are the five likeliest possibilities for when we might see Hulk again in the coming years.

Last year, it was rumored that the ending of Avengers: Age of Ultron would see Hulk somehow shot into space, leading many to speculate that Marvel was prepping the Green Goliath for an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Obviously, that particular ending didn’t come to pass (although Joss Whedon wanted to indicate that it might), and director James Gunn has firmly stated that Hulk will not appear in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. However, there could be the slimmest of chances that Gunn is trying to lead us off course, and it wouldn’t be the first time that a filmmaker has lied about a character in their film. We’re not saying that Hulk is going to have a major part in the sequel, but it’s always possible that he could show up in a minor role or just cameo so that Peter Quill can stay the primary human. Hey, even if Hulk doesn’t appear, people are going to flock to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 regardless. He would just be an added bonus.
