Check out director Ang Lee's unused animatronic Hulk!

Jan. 12, 2011by: George Merchan

Few movies have polarized my film buddies like Ang Lee's HULK. Some feel it's the best superhero movie to yet be be made - deep in its psychological complexities and ambitiousness. The others, well, they just think it's lame. But being the good friend that I am, I just nod and politely smile to the guys who think it's some sort of high superhero art. I get it. I see what they're saying. They're intelligent film buffs and have, usually, impeccable taste. I just completely do not agree with them.

But a discussion on the merits of Ang Lee's film is neither here nor there. What I'm here to show you is this motherf*cking robot Hulk.

Courtesy of Steve Johnson - who's been leaking the shit out of material from projects he's worked on in the past - we've got here below a video of a scraped animatronic Hulk that was intended to be used in the 2003 film. Obviously, Lee ditched the practical effects in favor of CGI, but thanks to the magic of the internets, we can now see what could have been.

Extra Tidbit: Guillermo del Toro's Hulk television project for ABC will reportedly be using "a mixture of prosthetics, puppetry and CGI."

Lee's Hulk was mediocre.

Norton just made a better version. Nuff said.

Transformation? You could get the same shot pumping sauage in to a sock. Wow... thanks for wasting more money, Ang. Maybe if Mr. Lee had spent the budget better, he would have had enough to shoot a REAL ending to the film. At least he had enough for a CGI poodle...

Please don't even try and compare Ang Lee's mess to The Incredible Hulk.

Ya, other than the awful color, I thought Ang Lee's CGI Hulk was far more convincing than The Incredible Hulk's.

cant they just use a real human as the hulk, you take the biggest motherfocker on the planet and make him green, it doesnt matter if he can act, just play angry.

I'd take that w/ some enlarging. Like we got w/ Gandalf in Bilbo's house. The Hulk is WAY bigger than any the biggest real human.

That arm transformation was AWESOME! Way more believable than the CGI Hulks we've gotten so far, especially Rhythm & Hues' plastic CGI Hulk from THE INCREDIBLE HULK.

I bet Del Toro would have still used that along w/ CGI to wonderful effect.
