A sequel for this version of Hulk has been in talks since the first part came out. It was being discussed by the director Leterrier about how if the movie succeeded, it might get a sequel but if it did not work out the final ending of the movie could be taken as Bruce turning into a villain and just ending the further story right there. However, at the time, the studio was also busy with Iron Man and Avengers due to which the Incredible Hulk and its future were on hold indeterminately. Although there were discussions around part 2, nothing has been ever confirmed on it.
We cannot assume much since filmmakers are themselves silent about it and on top of that, it has been 14 years so we have to wait for the update.
