New shot from... THE HULK!

Hey folks, Harry here... Just got this picture from the upcoming HULK movie. Want some context for the photo? Well, David Banner has just released Hulk Dogs on Betty's trail. Bruce is told this, tries to get that bastard Glenn Talbot to help protect Betty, but of course, Talbot being the bastard he is, begins bitch slapping Brucey Wussy around, pissing the egghead something fierce. This is the scene in the trailers where you see a house at night sort of break apart. Heh. HULK, while being uncontrollable still has a "drive" he knows he must protect Betty, so he LEAPS off to where he knows Betty is. In the trailer, there's that shot where Hulk is hiding amongst some trees, and Betty looks up at him... This shot below is a continuation of that...










Right after this scene... 3 Hulk Dogs show up, and an ultra-violent... perhaps the most violent scene with dogs ever... well, I can't imagine it being as visceral as AMORES PERROS, but Hulk really pummels these pups something hardcore. As written, the scene is short and when it comes to an end... Whew... Great stuff, if it is realized correctly. This is the first time the Hulk fights in the movie. There are many more to come!

    Hulk Sad

    by BuckyKatt

    Is it me or does that Hulk look ALOT like he's made from the same stuff my old Stretch Armstrong was? I hope the script is good cause that FX looks bad and not in a RunDMC 'Bad meaning good' way.

    Umm...how did his pants get bigger?

    by John Travolta

    That's odd, wouldn't his pants rip apart while he turned into the hulk? Or does he just happen to have a pair of levi's hulked sized jeans in his drawer? Ha, you would never notice such idiocy in Battlefield Earth. Have a Battlefield Earth day!

    HULK (will be) SMASH!

    by odysseus

    Okay, now I'm officially excited. Beautifully rendered. A cinematic poet like Ang Lee doing the HULK... it shows! This is shaping up to be a great summer for popcorn movies: X2, Matrix... hell, even Charlie's Angels. Bring 'em on....

    This is the first sign that has shown me ILM have got it right.

    by Dr_Zoidberg

    The trailers looked good, but there wasn't enough Hulk to seeif it was textured/rendered right, but this picture is almost perfect. Although, even if the effects are crap, I'm sure it will be a good film.

  • April 9, 2003, 1:57 p.m. CST

    Hulk size it!!

    by Hunter-X

    I read somewhere that Hulk's size will depend on his "rage factor". I'm not sure where all the mass will come from, but it'll be interesting to see how it works. As far as his look goes, haven't any of you folks seen the close up shot of his face that's been floating around on the net? He looks pretty damn real. This photo isn't exactly high quality. Does anybody know when a new trailer is coming out? I wanna see more Hulk action!!

  • April 9, 2003, 1:58 p.m. CST

    Hmmm..well..

    by trafficguy2000

    The size of this Hulk does work with the old purple pants Hulk from back in the day, but even the comics seemed to make him larger or smaller just to fit whatever storyline they were doing. One thing I dont know yet is- in this version will Banner's father end up being the Leader? And which leader? Old bubble brains like Mcfarland drew him or the old school eraser head? Sorry I have kept myself in the dark for this one for the most part!

    by Truman_Burbank

    This is just laughably bad. You couldn't pay me enough to go see this crap. All these summer movies I was so excited about are falling apart... Matrix with the Nelson twins (or white Milli Vanilli), Hulk looking like Shrek after some Joan Rivers surgery, X2 doesn't have me too excited. I guess I'll just have to wait for ROTK and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Damn late fall/winter has the only good movies nowadays. Piss off, Hollywood!

    Ten feet tall?

    by Chow Yun Phat

    I thought he was going to be approximately 9 or 10 feet tall? He appears to be right on scale, that is, if Jennifer Connelly is 3 feet tall.

    by Terry_1978

    Man, J. Connolly is barely up to the old boy's waist, and look at that mofo's arms!!!! One arm is almost the size of her whole body! Yeah, he looked cartoonish in the early trailer, but damn it....they're proving themselves today.

    Mighty Hulk Young...or Hairless Baby King Kong

    by The Killer-Goat

    Yeah, it looks like a musclebound person alright, but this scene belongs in a 3rd 'Toy Story' installment, with such screwed-up scale difference. Hulk was never about proportionate appearances, he's just a huge, overly-swollen, frickin'-ripped dude with a human-sized skull. That's what made him so freaky. He's large, but he's not a proportionate giant. This is certainly going to be different. _________ As for his pants, since we're defying more than just physics here, maybe his gamma-radiated ball sweat makes his pants get angry and grow too. Looks like Betty's gonna need them yoga classes to get more flexible...

  • April 9, 2003, 2:18 p.m. CST

    wow, I didn't think it could be this bad

    by outtosea

  • April 9, 2003, 2:20 p.m. CST

    Oh, dear...he looks like a toy.

    by AnyaOrmsby

    It looks like a Toy Biz figure with Jennifer superimposed. I'm still looking forward to this. I love Ang. I love the Hulk. I love Jennifer Connelly's bodacious body. From here on out, I'm goin' spoiler free. See you in June.

  • April 9, 2003, 2:20 p.m. CST

    Looks like the Hulk to me

    by Acappellaman

    I don't know why some of you are crying about the way the Hulk looks. The only resemblance he has to Shrek is the skin tone. But surprise, folks, the Hulk came first! Quit yer bitchin'! For all the morons around here that cry about how the latest superhero movies don't look like the comics, you'd think there would be more people going nuts about the Hulk. He looks friggin EXACTLY like he does in the comic. Some of you jerks need to lighten up. This movie is going to be one hell of a ride. I can't wait!

  • April 9, 2003, 2:32 p.m. CST

    Oh my god! They made him look like a comic book character!

    by California Split

    And I also wonder about how his pants get bigger and always manage to stay on. Can't they just castrate him in an early scene, then that would explain why he's so mad all the time.

  • April 9, 2003, 2:47 p.m. CST

    That's pretty damn gay.

    by KONG33

    Hate to say it, but seriously, that's the gayest thing I've ever seen. The funny hair and the winsome look on his old hulky face... (shouldn't he be angry, or smashing?) I guess that's all I can think of now. uh... He's really green and huuuuuggge!

  • April 9, 2003, 2:47 p.m. CST

    Stupid

    by murgatroid1

    That hulk is too big, too stupid looking, too fake, and to cartoonish. Did I mention too big? I've been a Marvel fan for decades and I wish them the best , but I hope this film falls flat on its Big Fat Green Ass. Unless they make some major changes. Terrible looking! Go X2!

    by AVoiceOfReason

    Okay, let's jump off the 'let's trash hulk' wagon a moment. That is not an adult he is standing in front of, that's a little kid. Look closely at her dimensions fanboys. And for those who dont like the look of the hulk, uhm.... did you want them to re-hire lou ferrigno? This is an awesome interpretation of the incredible Hulk, and I for one cant wait to see it.

    Bunch of damn psychics...

    by NeoAngelus

    It's amazing that you can tell when a movie is going to suck 2 months before the movie comes out, hearing only rumors, seeing a trailer or two, and a couple screen shots, mere fractions are part of the whole. Christ, a lot of you are a bunch of pretentious "know-it-alls". Whatever happened to withholding condemnation before actually seeing the movie? I realize you're entitled to your opinion and all, but naysaying a movie before you've even seeing, some of you not even going to see it, just because you don't like a picture, or some of a trailer. It's ridiculous.

  • April 9, 2003, 3:29 p.m. CST

    I'm sick of this......

    by Magunga

    Why is it that you losers swear that a movie you've never seen is great or that it's going to suck balls? You don't know how the final cut is going to turn out unless you actually see the movie. I haven't a clue if "Hulk" will be a decent movie right now, but I'll find out the day I plunk my change down to watch it. And by the way, the picture looks fine. If you'd bother to notice, there hasn't been a movie with completely flawless cgi to date, but year-by-year, movie-by-movie it's improving.

  • April 9, 2003, 3:35 p.m. CST

    Oh dear...

    by Rik Booth

    General consensus of the Talkback so far is that Hulk looks well, er, gay, and I am adding my two cents to this by agreeing. Yes, Ang Lee is a very talented helmer; and yes, comic book to film adaptations have worked well recently, but c'mon, the titular character needs to look good at least...

  • April 9, 2003, 3:40 p.m. CST

    by Mr Brownstone

    Oh and by the way, that picture kicks insane amounts of ass. He's the HULK! Remember? Not the slighly larger than average green guy. Don't forget HULK came before Shreck, so Shreck looks like HULK not the other way around. Dumbasses.

    Ah, realism

    by yourmoviesucked

    I have faith in Ang and his team in turning out a great film. Hulk may not appear to be the hip, flashy Marvle charicter that he was in the early '90's, but it seems to me that the Ang and Co. are going for realism and beliveability. If you look closely at the Hulks face and hair, you'll notice how much his featurs resemble that of Banners. Also , his body is not sculpted, yet retains the normal charicteristics of someone who regularly works out their upper body. He doesn't have that chiseled Mr. Universe look. Also, when the Hulks height is in question in the comics, he is referd to as being at least 10' tall. Always has been. Marvel can't help it if their artists scale perception is horrible. Just look at Rob Liefelds work on X-Force.

    Nope. Nope, Nope, Nope, Nope, Nope.

    by HarmoniumSaver

    The joy of the Hulk was that he was pissed off and looked scary but could still hang out with the rest of the Avengers or whomever he felt like. The non-chiseled features is just an excuse for bad CGI. Already the cartoonish usage of Green in the trailer is enough to say "for da kids". I always thought it was better when movies weren't made for kids, because then I felt I was sinking my teeth into something back in the day and I was lots more mature than the rest of the other kids. Blade was just alotta blood with scraps of storyline, and a defenite headache inducer. Ang Lee, a wonderful director, said "sometimes I feel bad when I make my actors fly through the air", so why he does another action film is beyond me. With hope this movie will be worth it, but sofar, I ain't too interested outside my choice to root for Marvel. X2 looks peachy-keen!

    by AnyaOrmsby

    Why does Harry call him David? That's the character from the T.V. show. The comic character is Bruce Banner. Just a typo? Sloppy, big man. Especially from such a stated Stan Lee/Marvel Comics fan.

    The Hulk has NEVER...

    by Kid Z

    dya' member that unicorn from Harry Potter

    by Sheik Yerbouti

    It was a fully realized CG character in a live action movie, and yet it didn't fit like a Gollum or even, dare I say, Jar Jar. Frankly LOTR and Star Wars both had cg characters, that were obviously CG, and yet something looked right about them, not plastic or fake. It's like the CG artists did a rendering of a large CG claymation Hulk, or CG Comic book Hulk, there is something not right about it, too smooth, not enough minor detail, and that face looks bizarre, not quite right. Who knows the movie could be good, just too bad the Hulk doesn't look exactly like some had hoped.

    thaqts a pretty damn impressive CG character, hope his movements and gravity are as good. I can live with his "size", plenty of artists have drawn him well above the 7 ft mark. Hell, I'm 6'5", the Hulok should be a lot bigger than me or Shaq for that matter. Boy are you fucktard Matrix fanboys gonna be pissed off when this movie rolls the Matrix this summer as Spidey did to Ep II last summer....

    by Praetor

    You saw him throwing around a tank in the trailer but you didn't expect him to be that big or strong? Oh and the effects do look very bad. There is no human glint in the eye. He looks like a big toy. ILM are going to fuck up big time.

    by one9deuce

    My God that looks terrible. It just doesn't look right. To all those not understanding the Shrek remarks, they aren't saying that the Hulk looks like Shrek, they're saying that the Hulk looks like he belongs in a CGI cartoon. The special effects just don't look realistic. There were a few parts of The Two Towers were I thought that Peter Jackson had found an incredibly skinny, short, malnourished, and talented actor with a big head and giant eyes to play Gollum. The CGI is THAT good sometimes. The Hulk just isn't looking even close to that convincing. Hey, AVoiceOfReason, that isn't a little kid in front of The Hulk, it's Jennifer Connely and that part is in the script as Harry pointed out. To dougie howser md, it's Dynomutt. And he was partners in crime with The Blue Falcon. As far as CGI goes, I just don't think they are EVER going to pull off a totally convincing human or human type character. I don't personally think CGI is getting any better than it has ever been. The T-Rex stepping out from the fence and in between the two Explorers looks 100% convincing, as does 80% of Jurassic Park. It is really all a matter of time and money.

    If I wanted to see some 7 foot tall brute, I'd watch wrestling. I wanna see an imposing looking brute that's 1000 lbs of green fury, I'll be checking this movie out. Everyone wants the X-Men to wear their costumes in the movie, they say Daredevil looks NOTHING like the comic and that Ben was wearing gimp gear. Lo and behold, Hulk looks exactly like the comic, but no one is happy that Ang did as much to make Hulk a perfect comic to movie translation. The movie will be great.

    Hulk's gig with the Defenders

    by AbsOfJello

    Considering Hulk is supposed to be this temporary embodiment of Bruce Banner's rage, I always wondered how Hulk could have been a member of a superhero group like the Defenders. Did they have to go kidnap Bruce Banner and piss him off whenever they had a mission to accomplish? "Hey Bruce, I fucked your mother last night and she was GOOOOOD!! OK are you mad now? Let's go kick Doctor Strange's ass." It's almost as impractical as a dead guy like the Spectre being a card-carrying JSA member. AOJ

    by mifune jr.

    Jesus christ, give me a break. Everyone was sure X-men was going to suck ass, and Spider-man was going to suck ass, etc, etc. I have faith in Ang and ILM. OK, so the Hulk looks a little cartoony and exaggerated...we haven't really seen the fully finished character, as he moves, breathes and reacts to his environment. Give the movie a chance. And get a life, while you're at it. Knitpicking, whiny fucks.

    THE FUNNY THING IS

    by Ribbons

    You know it's true about the LotR thing. After this comes out, people's stances on the quality of the film will turn 180 degrees. They won't recant anything negative they said about the film or anything like that, they'll just hope you assume that they always loved how "deep and lyrical" Ang Lee was making this film. Please. I don't understand why people even feel the need to say it's going to suck in the first place. Are you trying to lower your expectations so that you won't be disappointed when the thing comes out? I mean, you've got great actors, great filmmakers, and positive buzz in one corner, and in the other corner...unfinished, unrealistic effects work on a giant green humanoid that's bigger than he was in the funny books ("now that's just unrealistic. He was 8 feet tall, NOT 10! Where does it all come from!?"). Wow, I guess that means it really is gonna blow chunks. Shrek 2, at least there's X2, what will I do with my empty life but wait for ROTK and Kaufman's latest?, blah blah blah. All your fears for this film are unfounded. Oh, and one more thing: Realize that ILM is working around the clock on this. I can kind of understand where the Rings-mania comes from on this site, and I'm okay with (most of) it. But I don't understand why some of you people latch onto the series so much that you embrace and defend every aspect of them like it's your duty. Yes, WETA did a good job with Gollum. They also digitally mapped his face. As far as I know, Ang Lee and ILM are the only "actors" behind the Hulk. So to keep up this whole ILM sucks thing and to cite Gollum and to cite WETA and to cite the Oscars and to hope that we agree is ludicrous. All David and Goliath appeal aside, ILM is, and has the potential to display that they are the best effects house in the world, bar none. They do several movies a year, and they rarely attain the intimacy and correspondence that Jackson had with WETA during and after the production of Lord of the Rings. If they put their minds to it, ILM could surpass any effects shot in LotR. At least that's my belief. And if they try and your Hulk is still unsatisfactory, deal with it and take from the film what you will.

  • 4 Fucks sake, the ripping pants thing was OLD back in the 70s. Get over it!! As for the pic - he's green and he's a behemoth if ever I saw one! I like the proportions. They haven't given him a ridiculously tiny ping-pong ball head set amongst enormous ham-joint muscles (like the fuckwit 90s "hot" artists of the 90s did). I have a temptation to echo the general "too big" sentiment, but I'm gonna reserve judgement until I see the big fella on the big screen....altho I'm almost bored with seeing film of smashed up tanks....

Especially the more recent issues. As a matter of fact if you don't believe me just check out the first couple pages of the lastest {April} issue of "The Incredible Hulk". So all you sissy whiners make your own Hulk flick and post the pics here so I can make fun of your effort!

    by riskebiz

    Ang Lee should have taken a page from Peter Jackson's book and found the most rip'ed bodybuilder out there and painted him green and other make-up effects and added him to the shots exactly how they did the Hobbits with Gandalf. It would have been far more satisfying.

HULK. Can the incredible Hulk Hogan defeat the 20-foot-monster from the Gamma Lab? Will Hulkamania conquer the Big Green Machine? Will Hulk Hogan do his usual "big stare, no-sell, Hulk-up, leg drop" routine? MEMO TO VINCE: CALL UNIVERSAL, MAKE THE MATCH. HULKSTER VS. HULK, WRESTLEMANIA XX, MADISON SQUARE GARDEN. I'm there!

    Don' Hurt the Hulk Doggies, Please

    by Jervis Tetch

    "Willard" tanked a few weeks ago because it had a long sequence where a cat got killed. Now a scene where Hulk hurts/kills little Hulk doggies? In a scene like something from Amores friggin' Perros (a.k.a. "gruesome doggie slaughter on parade'). Doesn't Universal get it? Audiences LOVE to watch human beings get pummelled, killed, dismembered, but HATE to see animals get hurt or killed. Therefore, the death or maiming of defenseless lil' Hulkie Doggies can only meet box office death for the Hulkster.

Big fuckin' whoop. As for you retards asking for a body builder to play the Hulk, we're not in 1977 anymore. That kind of shit would get laughed off the screen in 2003. And what is it with so many people on here hatin' on ILM? Name one effects house that has done a FX scene better than ILM, other than WETA's Gollum (which was fantastic). They made you belive dinosaurs were real, they made the city of Corusant come alive, they made a realistic looking podrace completey by computer and still you people hate. Fuck off, the lot of you. What the fuck do you want? Hey I love Ray Harryhausen to death but I don't wanna see a new movie with stop-motion animation. And I don't wanna see the Hulk as a big body builder either. Jeezus, you guys sound so damn stupid. I truly believe that any film made by 99% of you talkbackers would suck ass and look like shit.

    usually i don't care when filmmakers change things in the translation from comic book to the big screen. but this time it's just ridiculous... the Hulk looks HUGE!! The appeal of Hulk is that he is a fairly human-sized freak of nature, not a 20 foot tall Mighty Joe Young wannabe. He's the size of the T-Rex in Jurassic Park! And the pants thing is really distracting too, because obviously any clothes Banner wears would be torn to shreds if he grew to that size. Oh well, X2 still looks cool as hell.

    Danny Elfman replaces Michael Danna on Hulk

    by kim's nipples

    Are you all mad that Danny Elfman is doing the score to Hulk now since all of you hated Spiderman so much? Keep in mind that the last time Elfman had 3 weeks to replace someone else's suumer score, he wrote the best action score of his career, Mission: Impossible. I wonder if Danny puts on the main title theme from Beetlejuice in the background when he has sex with Bridget Fonda. Here are the top 5 Danny Elfman pieces to have sex with Bridget Fonda to, in my opinion, and I hope Danny reads this and follows my advice: 1. Beetlejuice: Main Title, 2. Pee Wee's Big Adventure: "The Breakfast Machine", 3. Batman: main Title (or the final cue, where we zoom up the building and the Batman theme rises triumphantly in major mode for the first time) 4. Mars Attacks: Main Title, 5. Mission Impossible: "Zoom B." Hulk looks like Shrek.

    by LeeScoresby

    No, not the shot of the Hulk. What's pathetic is that I'm poting here, defending it. For people who assumedly love film you sure are quick to jump all over something that doesn't conform to your narrowly drawn parameters of "cool". Hulk looks like something out of an old Harryhausen flick. Not that half of the people who comment on this thing would know who Harryhausen is. Besides, his work must "suck", right? And the original Star Wars trilogy must "suck" too. After all, you can tell that some of the aliens are people wearing masks. And Lord of the Rings must "suck" too. After alll, you can soooooo tell that the Wargs are CGI. I'm going to see this COMIC BOOK MOVIE when it comes out, because I respect it's director and I grew up with the comic book. I'll probably enjoy it. But it won't change my life either way.

    To D@mn Tall.

    by The Founder

    Well i'm not going to complain about the CGI, because CGI looks like CGI, and we can all spot it. The Hulk is to phucking tall, he looks to be an ideal size for a Sentinal if they are ever used in an Xmen sequel. I think max height should be like 8 to 9 ft tall. Anything under 8 ft is to short for the hulk.

    I've been reading AICN for years and have never before felt the need to participate in the ridiculous one-upmanship that is the Talk-Back, but on this thread I just had to point out a few things: 1. You Photoshop wonks - take this picture, make the Hulk grey. Boom - 80% of your problem with the character will be gone. What's really bothering most of you is that you're looking at a big, photo-realistic green dude, and that just ain't natural. Your brain is simply rejecting the concept - for now. Gollum had the distinct advantage of being a less startling color; if he had been purple you'd have had the exact same problems with his appearance. 2. Performance. Again, still photo of a purple Gollum - bad. Purple Gollum with Serkis and Co.'s performance behind it - wet fanboy trousers. Speculate all you like, but never forget that this is an Ang Lee film (well, as much of one as he can get away with within a studio system), and those of you who have seen his collected works know to expect some serious acting, CGI or no. (Check out "Pushing Hands" sometime.) 3. Raise your hand if you've seen a single complete scene from this film. What? No hands? Hmmm. So I thought. So, shut the traps and open the minds kids. If you can get over yourselves you may be pleasantly surprised.

Beware a minor spoiler below: After all of the initial skepticism about the look of the Hulk, everyone at ILM is quite optimistic. Many say he is looking fantastic, with some scenes honestly rivaling the look of Gollum in Two Towers. That being said, understand that some scenes are a bit corny, but still good. When asked about the ultra cool tank-tossing scene seen in the Super Bowl commercial, I was told that it takes place after the San Francisco trashing, with Hulk fleeing towards Southern California by super-jumping.

    Hulk-Sized

    by Steve Rogers

    I really really REALLY hope that Ang Lee and Universal aren't screwing up the Hulk with this flick. I was, I think like most fans, very happy when Lee was announced as director, as I knew he would be be great at capturing the emotional trauma and psychological drama which are at the core of Banner and the Hulk's story (read Peter David's awesome run on the book - especially his pairing with Dale Keown - if you want to see how great the Hulk can be). All the rumours and stoies about changing the origin, no Rick Jones, Hulk dogs, all that just made me worried, but I have hung in there like grim death because I have faith in Ang Lee and his cast. The Hulk in this shot does indeed look too big. He should be no more than eight or maybe nine feet max, but this Hulk is like a freakin' TREE! And so again I feel the fear. But let's hang in there. I'm really resisting the urge to slam what I've seen of this picture so far, because we haven't seen even the half of it and, let's face it, we all want this movie to ROCK. Personally, I'm pulling fr this movie to rule at the Box Office so that, in the sequel, we get to see the Grey 'Joe Fixit', smart-talking Hulk. Ooh yeah, fanboy freakout!

    This scene happens at the end of the movie and it's the first fight scene? What the hell I'm I going to have to sit through to get to this? (And for the few of you, Ang Lee HAS YET to make a good movie!)

    What would a She-Hulk look like

    by killazinc

    I think the Hulk looks good as far as detail goes, but he does look a little tall. Then again I've heard that his size varies with his anger, so I'm sure this will be explained. I really wanted to see a female Hulk out though( from that little rumor that was going around the web some time ago ). C'mon ya'll, You know that shit would be sexy as hell. So, who would any of you want to see hulk out into a very voluptous woman?

    he didn't disappear . . . he was skinned alive!

    by Hud

    which reminds me: Hulk should definitely cut back on chest and bis and start dooing some abs and cardio. but the real point is that in real life, a chap like this would have plenty of ladies who would fancy sexual intercourse with him. There is no man so beastly that women aren't enamored precisely of his excesses It would be funny if Hulk were steadily but intermittently pursued, Beatles-like, by a traveling crew of deliriously lustful women trying to peel off what's left of his pants. They'd be more of a bother than the army or the Hulkbusters or Roger Ebert. And I wonder too if this film will make the case to "cast" a CGI Superman (leaving the Clark business to a human actor).

    Shon re: Marvel and the Web

    by themikejonas

    I'd say you're going to have to bend over and take it like a man, because The Punisher is a trademark of Marvel, and more likely than not they will win the dispute if it's brought up to ICANN (or whoever's in charge of these issues). You may have stood a better chance if the name in question is a word commonly used in other contexts ("daredevil," "wolverine," "storm"), but dead obese rappers aside, when someone says "The Punisher," they mean the Marvel character.

    Will you assholes ever be satisfied? HULK SMASH!

    by czarian

    I swear to god,so many people can't wait to have something to bitch about.This is a great cgi monster.Doesn't look fake,or cartoonish to me.I was truely blown away by the superbowl teaser,and to tell you the truth I really didn't care if this ever got made.I was a fan of the T.V.show as a kid and the thought of a HULK movie being made scared me.I was afraid that they would try to paint someone green again.I didn't want to see that again,I wanted better.As a kid in the late 70's/early 80's those f/x on T.V. were fine but,with what has been accomplished with f/x-cgi in movies such as STAR WARS,L.O.T.R. & HARRY POTTER why not a CGI HULK. I'm sick of all you so-called purest whinning!Times change(for the better most of the time)I don't want cheesey "campy" remakes of cheap outdated shows/movies of the past. I want the best there is to offer to make the best visual presentation possible.If Mr.LEE has put as much into the story as he has in his cast & F/X then it will be fantastic. - 'NUFF SAID

    by bushybob

    Well,Well! The big green guy looks a bit on the TOO BIG size if you ask me folks! I have to agree with most of the geeks that HULK is a bit on the large size. Sorry, but I allways imagined that he was more around the 7-8ft size judging by the comic books. In the end all we can say is that this movie will be like the hulk we see here: HUGELY ENTERTAINING, or an absaloute joke of a crap movie adaptation. nuff said, wait and see folks!

    by jedimast3r

    With all the other promising flicks coming this summer, I don't have faith enough in Ang Lee to pull this off. Marvel is 4 for 4 right now, what with both Blades, Spidey and XMen...this will be its inevitable flop amongst all the great translations so far. Hulk is great because when Banner turns it's like a horror movie; you don't know what will happen next (except for those dumb lets-forget-it-was-ever-written-like the Highlander sequels Grey Hulk shlock years)and its suspenseful...from the trailer it doesnt look like we are going to get that kind of terror from the Big Green One. I'll pass.

    Too early to tell

    by MarcTheCritic

    I have seen many a movie I thought would be stupid, only to discover that they weren't that bad or were really good. Take the original Batman movie, with Keaton. He's short, not stocky, and has a receding hairline. I NEVER wanted him in that movie, but he was pretty good. I think this movie may be the same. It's hard to make a giant judgement on the entire movie from a trailer or a few pictures. I admit the Hulk really looks stupid and TOO BIG in this picture, but it just may be that picture that sucks. No one will really know until they see the entire movie. I'll save my judgement for then. Raw eggs don't taste good until their part of a finished cake!!

    Chet Donnelly, I did not say that people were going to stay away

    by Ray Garraty #47

    I said that I think that the average moviegoer isn't going to want to see it, especially if they paid to see "Daredevil." If you're in a room full of people who aren't comic book collectors/fans or dyed-in-the-wool film buffs and the Hulk commercial comes on, do they act like they can't wait to see it? In my experience, no. Even if they liked Spiderman. They don't know who Eric Bana is, the Hulk is not as popular as Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, or Spiderman, "the effects look stupid," or, "That's the guy who directed Crouching Tiger? I thought that movie was way overrated." All of the people who normally avoid superhero movies liked Spiderman so they went to DD, and got burned. As for the previously mentioned talkbacks, I don't sense that the movie geeks are really excited about this film, either. Finally, if you had to choose between X2, the Matrix or the Hulk as your summer escape movies, I'll bet the Hulk would lose out. That being said, The Hulk will succeed globally, just not domestically. I'll give you one more. You know that teenagers are needed for some of these movies to succeed. If you're an eighth grader or freshman in high school right now and every guy in your English class is talking about how stupid the Hulk movie looks and the little girl you want to take out says it looks stupid, then you ain't going to see it. I see your point...but it didn't really apply to my earlier post.

    "Hulk Pledge Gamma Gamma Gamma"

    by Van Damned

    When I first heard about this movie while munching White Castle hamburgers with Axel and a few others in NYC, I was mixed about my feelings on it. I mean, Ang Lee doing "The Hulk"? Then I was told that Ang had a great angle on the whole thing and I was sort of interested. I mean, this is the guy who did "Crouching Tiger" and "The Joy Luck Club". Maybe he hasn't done straight action yet but he seems to do a great job on most things... The the rumors started. The script had a bunch of things that would make the average fan-boy cringe. like Banner's dad being the Absorbing Man and... HULK DOGS! Oh dear God, I thought. Marvel's winning streak is about to come to a crashing halt. THEN I hear about the changes made and the editing being done. Okay, so maybe they saved it in time. NOW I see more of the Hulk, his proportions and the previews which show his level of mobility, and I have to come to a decision because it's coming out soon and I have to figure out if it's the kind of movie I'm going to get 1st day tickets for, or wait two weeks or even wait for video. Personally, I'm waiting a few weeks and probably going to the matinee. If at all. I'm just not as psyched about this as other films I have been this year. I could be wrong, but that's why I have people whose opinion I value to help me change my mind if necessary. I don't just decide solely on a photo.

    Do you realize that the creators of the CGI Hulk modeled the giant after a real life bodybuilder? That is how bodybuilders look WHEN THEY ARE NOT COMPETING!

    Of course he doesn't look realistic. You look at him, your brain processes the information and tells you it looks wrong because it knows that it's impossible for someone to be that size. For it to look real there would have to be 10 foot tall, green giants walking down the street and then there would be nothing superhuman about the Hulk, so there wouldn't be a movie about him. It's the same reason why people say Spider-man didn't look real, because it's not something your brain can recognize as being from the real world, when have you ever seen a man swinging from building to building? (I thought it looked fine by the way) By the way, can someone please tell me the full Wolverine-Sabretooth backstory, cos I was watching X-men the other day and realised I knew very little about their pasts.

By the way, can someone please tell me the full Wolverine-Sabretooth backstory, cos I was watching X-men the other day and realised I knew very little about their pasts.

    by killazinc

    First off, if you've ever read the comic, or watched the cartoon,you would know that the She-Hulk is right up there with Rogue, Storm and the Black Cat as far as looks go. She's just green and big, But some of us like our women nice'n'thick. She always got a nice body, real nice T and A. And that long, sexy hair coming down her back ( I ain't never seen any hairs in the pit. If so that has to go immediately!) That's ok though son, some men just can't handle women that are bigger that them. I know, I know, they're scared they'll get broken. It' all right. But don't hate just because you can't hang.

    <I>From: Shon Subject: Marvel and the web Comment: Anyone got an opinion on this? I registered punishermovie.com and thepunishermovie.com and now Marvel sent me a letter saying I am a cyber pirate and I did something illegal. They want me to turn them over to them, what should I do?</i> I know this is wayyyy off-topic. I *have* to respond. Yes, I have an opinion on this. Now, my opinion takes into consideration the fact that you're NOT using either address for personal use. Nor do you seem to have a NEED to use those names, other than the probability that you want to get paid by Marvel comics to relinquish names which you supposed they (or another organization) would desire at some point. My opinion? You are, quite simply, an asshole with no ethics. There ya go.

    by JDanielP

    Yeah, ... knowing from what I've read about the twenty minutes of footage that was shown to the press, ... the Matrix sequels are breaking new ground in effects. It doesn't say much for the "ratings system" when the old school of thought (from way back in the 70's) makes a with a martial arts move of a "kick to the head" an automatic rating of "R". Because of this, ... the Matrix sequels will probably NOT be the king and queen of the years summer box-office. But you never know, ... from what I gather, they may do it anyway. And I'm happy for the Brothers who are making "comic book films" the way they were meant to be made, ... two guys who used to WRITE comic books. I say the Matrix SMASH Hulk, ... even though the "HULK" may rule because of the PG-13. -- Honey, bring the kids ... to the Matrix sequels, too!!!

    by Joren

    When looking at the most recent of Hulk pictures, I too get the feeling that maybe it does appear a bit cartoonish. However, I think that maybe it has to do a lot with the pictures we are given. We really haven't seen the Hulk in action, and we tend to only see pictures of the Hulk when he is in weird positions, or in very dark areas. Maybe consider the fact that on film he may make up for a lot of what we have seen right now.

(Well, maybe not that bad, but you get the picture). Think about it, my friends. What if the CGI nazi's got their dirty little hands on Alien 1, or, god forbid, the original Star Wars? They would have completely destroyed it. Take this picture, for instance. Why is the Hulk so out of porportion? He looks like Mighty Joe Young! Yes, he's supposed to be large, but why does his hands nearly hit the ground? He's not a gorilla. Why is he 10 stories tall? He was NEVER that tall in any of the TV seriers, or even the comic books. Why is he wearing purple shorts? This movie is going to be stupid. Just like the latest Star Wars were. I'd rather watch Thundercats or pokemon (at least they dont pretend to be 'life like').

    Why is there so much negativity towards this movie. So many stupid comments that make no sense. People are looking for any little reason to talk bad about this movie. How can people say it looks like Sherk or the look of the Hulk doesn't meet their expectation. What did you expect the Hulk to look like. I mean come on the Hulk looks perfectly done. He looks just like him. The size of the Hulk is what makes him look so great. Every movie today uses CGI, look at Spider-Man. Every time he was web sling around building you can clearly see its CGI. If you think this movie CGI stinks then your saying every movie with CGI stinks. I'm betting that the Hulk movie has the best CGI scene ever made. The Hulk movie is gonna be spectacular cause its gonna be a something that has never been seen before. Unless you know anything about making CGI characters or you can make a better CGI Hulk yourself please stop making stupid comments about the CGI. I loved Matrix Reloaded and X-Men 2 but the Hulk movie is gonna be the best movie this summer and maybe this year.
