Although we all believed that Hulk would be a part of the battle in Wakanda, thanks to the trailer, to our surprise we learned that Hulk only had a cameo role in the movie. It has been constantly bothering the fans to uncover the real reason the Hulk wouldn’t come out in Infinity War. Some believe that the defeat he faced at Thanos’ hands was too much for him to bear. While some say the Hulk is terrified of Thanos.
According to the directors, the Hulk is not afraid of Thanos. He just doesn’t wanna fall prey to the Avengers who only call him out when they are in dire danger. Trying to uncover the real reason Hulk said “NO” to come out, the Reddit user ‘Paranoidas’ lays down another theory.
Now, we all know that the MCU Hulk has a mindset of a few years old. Now, this theory says that Hulk is now ashamed because he has let his friends down. First, in Thor Ragnarok, he did register a win against Fenrir the Wolf but was useless when it came to Hela and Surtur. He believes that he could not prevent Asgard’s destruction. Hulk thinks of Thor as his friend after Thor makes him believe that he likes him.
And in Infinity War too, he fails his friends. He fails to save them from the Mad Titan. Now, given the fact that Hulk is a child, such a reaction is only normal. As per this theory, “Hulk won’t come out because he is ashamed. He’s afraid of failing again. He’s hiding from his problems and emotions. Hulk is mad at himself for the first time and he doesn’t know how to deal with that. Which causes him to hide in his “room” like a sulking teenager.”

If Avengers Endgame will indeed debut Professor Hulk, the rematch between him and Thanos would be a great one.
