    Doesn't look bad.

    by Sithtastic

    While I haven't been a fan of the CGI Hulk, this photo has a sense of Ruffalo in the expression. I am reserving judgement on Ruffalo's acting as Banner though. Still, no complaints on its look thus far.

  • Please. I coulda given you that. How about a fully rendered cast shot...hi rez with the Hulk looming behind the other trick or treaters? <p> Vidcaps are news now?

  • Feb. 22, 2012, 1:02 p.m. CST

    Although I'm not that sold on the footage...

    by Orbots Commander

    ...and it looks campy as all hell, there's no doubt I'll be seeing this in theaters, but I've definitely ratcheted down my expectations though. If it's simply entertaining and distracting enough and not annoying or overly long, then fine. The flick with my highest expectations, is of course, Nolan's Dark Knight Rises.

    Wow! First Hulk That Looks Real!

    by The E

    Appeared overly CGI in the trailer, just as previous Hulks did...but WOW, that still looks great. That does not look like CGI to me, and I'm pretty particular to it growing up on practical special effects. I hate the crowd who always says "a huge green man is always going to look fake to the human eye". Bull! That looks like a real huge green man, hats off for that particular frame at least...hope that pans out for the rest of the film.

  • Feb. 22, 2012, 1:04 p.m. CST

    Actually, looking at the big version...

    by rev_skarekroe

    ...what they got right is that his skin isn't too shiny. It actually looks kind of like skin, which was a problem with previous versions.

  • Feb. 22, 2012, 1:05 p.m. CST

    Why Change Hulk AGAIN? (Guess I'm In the Minority)

    by Sluggolicious

    Since this is supposed to be the same Hulk from the Louis Leterrier film (which I liked very much - great muscle tone, built more like a body builder on a low-carb diet than a big blobby giant), why isn't it ACTUALLY the same Hulk? Hulk isn't supposed to look like Banner (as he didn't much resemble Ed Norton in the last film) so redesigning him to include elements of Ruffolo's face was absolutely unecessary. Keeping the same monster would've helped smoothed over SOME of the continuity lost from having all of the same actors (but Norton) reprising their roles. Guess this is what happens when the ideas just keep rolling out and no one ever stops for a second to ask, "that sounds interesting, but . . why?!"

  • Feb. 22, 2012, 1:32 p.m. CST

    Small? How can you tell?

    Body hair

    by Projbalance

    That looks like the real difference. A lack of striated muscle definition and more body hair. Aside from that, still looks like CGI because; it's fracking CGI! It's always going to look fake; that's just the way it is.

    Some of you guys are too funny. I like the posts that say stuff like "WTF STILL FRAME THIS IS STOOPID" Guess what? Guess you are stupid too because you didn't read the 400 other people's posts that say the EXACT SAME THING. If you don't like how often someone posts news, or don't think it's news, and hate this site etc.... Go Away. The only bad section this site has is the talkback section, and that's because about 98% of the posts are, "OMG THIS MOVIE IS GUNNA SUCKS, I CAN TELL FROM ONE PICTURE." Ghandi, Jesus, Buddah and L. Ron Hubbard could make a movie that ushered in an era of world peace and most of you guys would complain that Ghandi is too bald, Jesus is too white, Buddah is too fat and L. Ron Hubbard wears penny loafers too often.

    Wiggin' out

    by Michael Clark

    For all you TV/Ferrigno apologists--it's cool to be retro, but the Hulk on TV really had a terrible wig on. Really. The only truly great TV superhero (in terms of appearance) was Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman. The Hulk was great from the forehead down. Esp. confusing was the fact that Puny Banner had curly/wavy hair, and Hulk had straight haystack 'do. So I don't see how you could hold a CGI version (whose face actually resembles the actor playing Puny Banner) to be "inferior" to Mr. Universe in a bad green wig. Well, I don't.

    It helps that his teeth are white

    by tangcameo

    That's the one thing that irked me about the Ang Lee Hulk. His gums and teeth were green in that movie - felt like someone hadn't bothered to do the detail work and so I just didn't believe it. Although my ideal Hulk would actually sweat (none of them seem to do that, even during underwater scenes) and veins would pulse on the skin. And one close up of Hulk and some normal sized human where Hulk is pissed and breathing hard and you have this sense that Hulk is *pinch* that close from opening his mouth and snapping the guys head off with his teeth.

  • I'm seeing more Jack Kirby in there but maybe a bit of Ruffalo as well.

    What more do you fuckers want? I loved the the TV show when I was a kid...bixby and ferrigno and the music......was my favorite shit......But I have absolutely no desire to see some bodybuilder in green makeup. I mean cmon now. hahaha. You all would be shitting on that idea if it was the route they went. Other then Hulk and Iron man though.....this looks like "Village People the Motion Picture" Thor and Captain America look absolutley friggin ridiculous. Nothing against the filmakers or's just a ridiculous property to begin with. and ScarJo and Renner can look any way they want as far as I am concerned because I have never seen either character in a comic book. Never read the Avengers. But in my opinion Sarlette Johanson looks good in anything......even better in nothing.

    I think hulk looks pretty much perfect. I understand why Cap wears the outfit in his movie, it's an icon of hope for the soldiers - fair enough. But now it's almost 70 years later, what's his reasoning for dressing in such a ridiculous manner ?

    Sigh..Half of you have no clue about the Hulk...

    by jack Bauer

    The original Hulk by Kirby wasn't a muscle bound giant, he was a big guy looking more like Frankenstein. Over the decades he evolved into a massive toned creature. This CGI Hulk looks about right, at least there's some decent expression on his face and the eye's look more real as opposed to the usual dead shark cgi eye's you normally see. With Hawkeye and Black Widow looking woefully inadequate as 'super heroes' ie oh look she's shooting a little hand gun at the Skrull's with no swinging around and Renner and I have to say Cap looking like extra's from a gay version of the team I think the Hulk looks great compared. What WILL win or loose is the cg movement, not the running but the subtle movements, they will make or break it.

    Holy shit! I paused the trailer, grabbed the pic...posted it on tumblr...and it got picked up. It is exactly it! Wow. The hand blur is exact. Yeah..I'm taking credit. You're' welcome.

    Which is a good thing!

    This is shit. Do you folks even remember Jurasic Park?

    by aegri_mentis

    That movie was almost 20 years ago, and it had CGI that is better than most of the shit being thrown around now. Watch this clip, and remember/realize that while some of this T-Rex is animatronic, it's all cgi after around 1:30 when it runs off to catch the road flare. Yeah, there are some thick matte lines around the creature itself, but it looks fucking REAL.

    I'm liking this

    by babbune

    It's always going to be tough CGI'ing a human(ish), but this looks immense. Nice work. HULK SMASH!!

    Hey, I thought this was a new pic of the Hulk...

    by DukieMichaelNamondRandy

    ...I clicked on it and all I see is a pic of Mark Ruffalo with a bit of green coloring! Oh, wait...

  • Feb. 23, 2012, 8:17 a.m. CST


    by DukieMichaelNamondRandy

    I totally agree with your point about Jurassic Park! I still say to people that it's the best use of CGI I've seen in a movie with the recent exception of District 9. It used CG as a tool to give us the impossible, and only when necessary...nothing to me is creepier than that little animatronic new-born velociraptor...which i think is funny because Phantom Menace, Stevey's buddy's movie, was the beginning of the death of CG, IMO.

  • But for a totally different movie directed by Robert Rodrigez. Oh wait that wouldn't work either because the reason they scrapped Mars Attacks stop motion is because it was more cost effective to do it digital- In 1996! So guys. You live in this reality with these budget constraints. Enjoy!

  • The second one was all good. This one is the most realistic looking. You can see his back muscles twitching in the trailer. Looks like it'll be the best. Anyone see the animatronic hulk stan Winston built for the defunct hulk movie? That shit was awesome.

    Speaking of mars attacks

    by UltraTron

    the miniature sets on the Martian spaceship integrated perfectly with the cg. I'd like a whole movie with little mini sets with cg characters in them. The sets add the same level of detail as reality. Look at corpse bride. See how nothing beats real light? I say mini-sets and digital characters looks cool.

  • He's not to unnaturally green looking, he's monstrously ripped and he looks natural as opposed to every other cgi incarnation. What more can you ask for? I loved Lou Ferrigno too, but honestly another body builder with green body paint would be horrible in this day and age.

    by Stalkeye

    Oh you mean the same Hulk that couldn't talk, let alone take a bullet? The same Hulk that threw people across the room instead of smashing super powered villians or the Army? Fuck FerrigNO!

  • Facto!

    And while we're at it, quit using mo-cap as a costume

    by aegri_mentis

    The bad guys, who have pretty much confirmed to be skrulls, are going to be mo-cap. Again, shit. Put some full-body costumes, ala Predator on some stuntmen and start tossing them around. I haven't seen a motion-capture costume yet that didn't look like crap, other than some of the ones in the Pirates franchise. If you are going to layer bad CGI over top an actor, just use CGI for the whole thing.

    The Hulk TV series was done as it should have been at the time. It was about Banner trying to live with a demon inside him, not about comic villains. Yeah, by the later seasons, it got tedious; Banner slinks into a new town, takes a menial job, tries to do the right thing, angers local thugs, hulks out and kicks ass, then has to move on to the next town. It was based on the character of the Hulk, not the comic exploits. It focused more on Banner's struggles. Hell, I'm 39 years old, and still get a little choked up when I hear "The Lonely Man."

    I'd like to see another Hulk movie with Mark

    by DavidBanner

    Ruffalo as the lead. Assuming they don't screw up the character.

    no matter how much the computer tries to make the animation appear real, it can't convince the human BRAIN. They could cast a man and digitize the buildings or surroundings smaller than him. It would be more effective than having some fake looking green man along with the real actors. Roger Rabbit.

  • The one thing that this Hulk shares with the Hulk from 2003 is the body proportions, which is a good thing. Other than that, this one doesn't have that plasticine feel or the bright green skin, that made the first CGI Hulk look like a cousin of Shrek. Some people seem to complain just for the sake of complaining.

    What's up with his eyebrows? I hope they explain in the film. Maybe he caught Loki trying to shave one off?

    Nice catch, but I think it's tucked under his right corrugator. Probably a touch over-exaggerated, though.

    Ferrigno was never a good Hulk

    by Rupee88

    Those of you who are saying that were literature challenged as kids and never read Hulk comic books to see how the character was supposed to be. The TV Hulk is not the real Hulk. Real Hulk was the one introduced in the 60s and popularized in 70s with no major changes. Ferrigno was a regular dude painted green. It was lame and even though I watched as a kid, I knew it was lame at the time.

  • Feb. 23, 2012, 6:10 p.m. CST


    by Rupee88

    You can't be serious with your post. CGI is never going to be able to create photorealistic humans because it is just a tool. The limitation is not technology, it is the human brain and abilities. We won't have photoreal CGI humans until computers have real artificial intelligence, and then they can figure it out. And at that point, the world is totally different and all of this is not within our lifetimes and probably not in our children's either.

  • Feb. 25, 2012, 9:44 a.m. CST

    Agreed - Ferrigno IS the BEST HULK ever.
