‘Avengers: Endgame’ spoilers: Joe Russo on the how long Hulk’s arm will be injured

Can the Hulk recover from his injuries in Avengers: Endgame?

Warning: Spoilers for Avengers: Endgame ahead.

By now, you’re likely one of the many who’s seen Avengers: Endgame, a culmination of ten years of Marvel films breaking all sorts of box office records. (Only James Cameron’s Avatar has made more money at this point.)

If so, you’ve witnessed the dark, dark timeline of the film. No, we’re not talking about half of the universe’s population disappearing thanks to Thanos’ infamous snap. Or some of our most beloved heroes and Avengers sacrificing their lives. We’re talking about a nerd Hulk dabbing — and getting his arm torched to a charred, desiccated scrap of its former self while wielding the second Infinity Gauntlet. According to Endgame director Joe Russo, Hulk’s sacrifice wasn’t a short-lived one.

“He’s lost an arm,” Russo said in a Comicbook.com interview. “He lost Natasha. That’s not coming back. He’s damaged himself. I don’t know. It’s interesting. That’s permanent damage, the same way that it was permanent damage with Thanos. It’s irreversible damage. His arm, if you noticed, is a lot skinnier. It’s blackened. So, he loses a lot of strength there.”

Although the Hulk has healed from grievous wounds before the damage done by the Infinity Stones is one he won’t be recovering from any time soon. That doesn’t mean all hope is lost, though. “But who knows?” Russo continued. “There’s a lot of smart people left… Maybe someone helps him repair that. Maybe someone gives him a new arm. I have no idea where that character goes from here. The nice thing is we didn’t have to pay attention to where it goes after this, we just try to tell a satisfying ending.”

Someone call Wakanda and get Hulk a vibranium arm with the quickness (just don’t tell Rocket about it).
