The Hulk's Fate in 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' Tied into 'Guardians of the Galaxy' ?

Early last year the guys over at Latino-Review got a small tidbit that Marvel was considering doing another Hulk film with their new Bruce Banner Mark Ruffalo at the helm. They went onto say that the film Marvel wants to do is Planet Hulk series that would lead into a World War Hulk arc in Avengers 3. Of course this rumor was shot down by everyone at Marvel and most recently Mark Rufflo. Why you might ask? Because Marvel Studios won't for one market an entire film where Bruce Banner is inside the Hulk while the Hulk rampages in gladiator type fight on a distant planet. That would make Mark Ruffalo obsolete if Bruce Banner wasn't in the film due to it being anther space film.But there have indeed been hints to Planet Hulk with Sakaar aliens being present in Guardians of the Galaxy this august....

Well, now just last week Rufflo reiterated that a solo Hulk movie without Banner would simply just not work. But the guys over at HitFix (Who first broke the story that Jason Momoa is indeed Aquaman) have seemed to get the fate of The Hulk in his next outing in The Avengers: Age of Ultron:


According to HitFix The Hulk plays a significant role in the final act of the next Avengers film taking down Ultron but something happens that sends him indeed on a path towards the stars:
"Bruce Banner continues to play a key role in things in [Avengers: Age of Ultron], and when the final war with Ultron spills onto the battlefield and out of the virtual realm, he has a major part to play. Unfortunately, that ends with him onboard a Quinjet on his way off the planet, with no way to immediately turn things around. He's going to have to ride out the trip. It's pre-programmed and he can't stop it."
 That sounds like the beginning story for Planet Hulk but instead he is trapped on accident instead of being sent to space  by Doctor Strange, Mr. Fantastic and Tony Stark. Hitfix goes onto simply speculate that Hulk may end up on a crash course to meet up with our favorite space outlaws the Guardians of the Galaxy!
"I suspect we'll see some sequences that very much feel like they're part of Planet Hulk story, but the larger story will be about the Guardians finding a way to get Banner home, only to end up going with them." 
While a direct adaption of Planet Hulk may never have been in the cards certain elements of the story could certainly be used. And what better way to have a Hulk and talking Raccoon in the (still unannounced) Guardians of the Galaxy sequel. 
The question this when Thanos will attack Earth...when The Avengers finally don't have a Hulk?!

Guardians of the Galaxy hits this August; The Avengers: Age of Ultron hits next May
