Marvelâ€™s superhero movies abound with all kinds of information and mythology: how the Infinity StonesÂ work, the correct method of creating artificial intelligence, and more. But even so, there are questions left unanswered by both the films and comics. For instance, what color is the Hulkâ€™s poop? In order to answer such important questions, Marvel has inaugurated a new video series called Ask Marvel,Â in which the companyâ€™s stars and creators will answer fan queries ranging from the subjective to the strange.Â
First up in the series is Dave Bautista, who played the devastatingly unironicÂ Drax the Destroyer inÂ Guardians of the Galaxy.Â Bautista fieldedÂ a few typical questions â€“Â â€œWhich Marvel superhero is your favorite?â€ (Iron Man);Â â€œWhich superpower would you have?â€ (flight) â€“ before moving onÂ to the aforementioned Hulk poop problem.
â€œIâ€™m more concerned about what would make you think of this than I am with what color the Hulkâ€™s poop is,â€ Bautista said. â€œI would imagine it would be green? And it would be huge, right?â€
Watch the video below. New episodes of the series will appear every Thursday on Marvelâ€™s website and YouTube channel; fans can submit questions by tweeting them with the hashtag #AskMarvel. Future confirmed guests includeÂ DaredevilÂ lead Charlie Cox and former Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Quesada. In some ways this is a modern update of a grandÂ tradition of answering fan pages at Marvel, datingÂ all the way back to Stan Leeâ€™s tenure on the comics.
â€œWeâ€™ve been answering fansâ€™ questions in our letters pages, at convention panels, and on our This Week in Marvel podcast for years, so we felt it was time to collect the burning questions our fandom constantly poses, get them in front of a wide array of Marvel folks, and put it all on video,â€ Â Ryan Penagos, VP & Executive Editor for Marvelâ€™s Digital Media Group, said in a statement.
