Hulk vs. the Leader?

07.26.2007
Hmm, this is the first cause for concern in regards to THE INCREDIBLE HULK. Well, besides the casting of Liv Tyler.

The new HULK flick seems to be heading down the Overloaded Villain path that made SPIDEY 3 (and other supehero movies) such a chore to watch. Aside from the Abomination and General 'Thunderbolt' Ross and his Hulkbusters, Ed Norton and his digitally crafted green alter-ego will apparently also be facing gamma-irradiated scientist Samuel Sterns, also known as the big-brained baddie The Leader.

Actor Tim Blake Nelson (of O BROTHER WHERE ART THOU?, and he's also awesome in the zombie flick FIDO) will play the super-smart adversary, while Tim Roth and William Hurt appear respectively as Abomination/Emil Blonsky and Ross. TRANSPORTER 2 guy Louis Leterrier is working on Universal's 2008 flick.
Extra Tidbit: There is a website devoted to The Leader. Weird.

Its not like Liv will have to do much

Whether you like her or not, her main role will be to get between Hulk and her father, and to put herself in the path of peril. She can play that easily. Her brief parts in LoTR give me faith in her, but only just.

Settle down....

Samuel Sterns being in the movie does not automatically mean the leader is going to be in the movie, just as Dr. Curt Conners being in Spider-Man 2/3 didn't automatically mean that the Lizard was in those films.

Settle down people. No need to get all pissy until we actually know how big a role Sterns is going to play in the movie. It's WAY to premature to be whining about how there are "too many villians!!111!!1!!1".

The other bad part

These super hero movies always seem to kill the villian off. In the entire 5 picture span of the Batman flicks they killed the Joker (Jack), Penguin, Two Face and you'd assume Poison Ivy got it by the hand of Freeze, and then Ra Ah Ghul. In the Spiderman series you have Doc Ock, Green Goblin (both father and son), and theoritically Venom all dead. Why can't the hero just capture them and throw them in jail leaving solid villians for sequels instead of having to reach for 3rd tier villians by

Why can't the hero just capture them and throw them in jail leaving solid villians for sequels instead of having to reach for 3rd tier villians by the 4th movie? In the Hulk's case, the average public won't even know who most of 2nd tier ones are.

Also, why not really develop the story between the ONE villian and the hero? Now it seems like everyone has to try to jam everyone they can in just to say they did. It is one thing in an X-Men flick, where the villian runs an actual group. Now, instead, you get movies in which one of the most popular Spiderman villians of the past 10 years got maybe 30 minutes of screen time before his demise, at least the Eddie Brock version, as Brock appeared to disintergrate due to the pumpkin bomb.

i hate how hollywood thinks everything bigger means better. if you have 3-4 villians in #1 thinking about the sequel gives me a headache

TOO MANY

why do they do this?? don't they realise that just by cast and name alone this movie will make enough to do a sequel? All 3 better not die.

Hey come on

There's nothing wrong with Liv Tyler. I think she'll do a good job. At least give her a chance.

The Leader is my favourite hulk villain. I don't think there will be an overload, since there's a possibility Leterrier won't try to give each villain equal screentime.

Leterrier can't handle pauses between action scenes, so I'm all for overload
