The Hulk synopsis

05.30.2007
The new INCREDIBLE HULK movie still baffles me. It seems incredibly early to restart a franchise that didn’t even get the chance to be a franchise yet. But hey, people want to see superhero movies and so studios want to make them. Marvel must have thought the original HULK to be so incredibly misdirected that they couldn’t even wait to restart it. Now that we know Ed Norton of all people will be taking on the role of Bruce Banner with Tim Roth as the Abomination, expectations are rightfully high. And now, after much speculation, we’ve got the synopsis for you.

We find scientist Bruce Banner living in shadows, scouring the planet for an antidote. But the warmongers who dream of abusing his powers won't leave him alone, nor will his need to be with the only woman he has ever loved, Betty Ross (Liv Tyler).

Upon returning to civilization, our brilliant doctor is ruthlessly pursued by The Abomination (Tim Roth) -- a nightmarish beast of pure adrenaline and aggression whose powers match The Hulk's own. A fight of comic-book proportions ensues as Banner must call upon the hero within to rescue New York City from total destruction. And on June 13, 2008, one scientist must make an agonizing final choice -- accept a peaceful life as Bruce Banner or the creature he could permanently become: The Incredible Hulk.

Now doesn’t that sound like the HULK we all wanted in the first place? The movie is directed by Louis Leterrier (TRANSPORTER 1 & 2) and written by Zak Penn (X2). THE INCREDIBLE HULK will be released June 18 of next summer.

HULK SMASH!!!....FINALLY!

great news! with a plot like that, everybody can agree that this has the potential to be one great adaptation. One question though... since Ed Norton gets to play Banner this time, do we get to see the Hulk stomp Abomination's head on a curb? Ouch...

Sounds like a direct sequel...

I actually really liked the first movie but I heard they were making this a stand alone movie. The first movie ended with him hiding in the shadows in some guerrilla controlled jungle which sounds like the obvious place where this sequel will open.

batman, is that you?

The whole going off on his own and then returning to civilization with big battles and challengers sounds like the plot for Batman Begins, but with more Hulks...

Yo, chill the fuck out. TheFilmFreak: "You mean people are actually posting their views on a prospective film and...my God, *gasp* they actually DIFFER FROM MY OWN! GOOD LORD!" The whole point of sites like this one is for people to express their opinions, so relax, yo....

Dude hell yeah, I can't wait. I'm looking forward to this as much as I am The Dark Knight. If it's anything like Ultimate Destruction was, it'll be awesome. In the final battle Hulk and Abomination were rampaging around the desert, and while the two of you were giving each other the beatdown, the army decided it was too dangerous and stepped in. After that it's everyone vs everyone.

Hey racci - Re Zak Penn

That comment about him having the least to do with the one movie in his filmography that's good isn't really deserved. It looks like he had very little to do with any of his movies. An he has some stinkers, Electra, F4, Behind Enemy Lines, Inspector Gadget! Wow, where the hell do they find these guys?
He's apparently writing the script for an Avengers movie too.

First off, How the hell is it to early to make another HULK movie when the first one came out 4 years ago, Thats long enough and if you count when the new HULK movie comes out it will be 5 years since the last one. And they say this movie is not a sequal, Yet when the movie starts Bruce will already be the HULK, So in my mind this is a sequal. And for FUCK SAKES please stop with the fucking negitive shit. This diretor is going to be just right for this movie. Everyone is a fucking critic and

Rick Jones ftw

There won't be a retelling of the Hulk's origin, but at least there should be a flashback where you see Banner save Rick Jones from the gamma explosion on the test field. By the way, it would be great if Jones plays a harmonica, like in the comics.

You just had to put X2 to Penn's credit. The movie he had the littlest to do. And the only one that doesn't suck in his filmography.

Good things: synopsis, Norton, Roth, Tyler. Bad thing: Letterier directs. He's not the kind of director you want for this kind of movie so Hulk might end up something like Fantastic Four movie.
