Details on The Incredible Hulk

Screen Rant is all about TV and movie news without the sugar coating. In bringing you news about The Incredible Hulk, they definitely don't sugar coat anything, and just tell it like it is. You may consider these tidbits slightly spoilerish, so be warned, but they're not going to ruin the ending or anything for you. First off, Edward Norton was approached by Ang Lee to play Bruce Banner/Hulk in the first film, but politely declined. So he obviously liked the screenplay better. Doc Samson is also in the movie, and its unknown if its just a Dr. Connor role like in Spider-Man 2, or if he will undergo his comic transformation in the movie to set up a sequel. The Abomination will be in the movie, but he won't get abominable the comic book way. In the comic, he did it on purpose, but in the movie, he will gain his powers as a result of a military serum that transforms him. Kevin Feige (big man on Marvel campus) wants this movie to start a new series of Hulk films, as it picks up five years after the first movie, with Banner on the run, searching for a cure. And, in Hollywood fashion, General Ross has a new motive for capturing the Hulk. He doesn't want to kill him, rather, he wants to use him in the military. The special effects are being handled by Rhythm and Hues (as opposed to ILM), and their resume includes Babe, The Chronicles of Narnia, Superman Returns and Serenity. The Incredible Hulk hits theaters June 13, 2008. The Incredible Hulk details
