There is still time before Avengers 2 hits theatres, but recently revealed potential spoilers suggest a pretty interesting ending for the film.
According to a theory reported on Hitfix, Avengers 2 will end with Hulk getting shot into space (a somewhat similar storyline to the Planet Hulk comic book arc).
Earlier, Mark Ruffalo had scoffed at the idea of a Planet Hulk movie, and with good reason, but that doesn't mean Marvel couldn't or wouldn't still use the idea of sending the Hulk off-planet for a future film, states an io9 report.
Drew Mc Weeny of Hitfix has a theory about where the Hulk could be going:
"Here's where I'd wager his spaceship is headed: wherever the Guardians of the Galaxy are located. If I was a betting man, I'd say there will be no Hulk solo film as part of Phase Three. Instead, Banner's ship will take him to another planet, where he will end up meeting the Guardians and having an adventure with them.
"Hulk will definitely come out to play a few times. I suspect we'll see some sequences that very much feel like they're part of the Planet Hulk story, but that the larger story will be about the Guardians finding a way to get Banner home, only to end up going with him. That would move a big piece of the puzzle into place to get Thanos looking back at the Earth in time for the third Avengers film."
It looks like an interesting theory that definitely goes in line with something the folks down at Marvel Studios might have planned. Add to that, Ruffalo's tweet teasing a 'Hulk surprise' in the film.
@springrose12 Let me put it to you this way. There is a Hulk surprise that is equally delightful as when he smashed the bejesus out of Loki.

While it remains to be seen what really transpires in Avengers 2, the idea of a subsequent film bringing Guradians along with The Avengers is definitely very cool.
