William hurts Hulk

THE INCREDIBLE HULK continues its run at BATMAN BEGINS for best cast for a comic book movie ever by casting William Hurt in the role of Gen. Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross, father to Bruce Banners love interest Betty Ross (Liv Tyler) and nemesis to Bruce Banners alter ego, Hulk. Hurt will join Edward Norton as Banner, Tyler, and Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky/The Abomination in what is amounting to a prestige picture, as far as comic book movies are concerned. When I found out that the guy who did the TRANSPORTER movies was directing a new HULK movie, I did not expect this kind of talent to join him. William Hurt is one of the finest actors working today and Edward Norton is quite good at pretending to be other people too. The HULK certainly looks incredible so far.
Extra Tidbit: The guy who did THE TRANSPORTER movies is actually named Louis Leterrier.

Sometimes I wonder if the people who write theses news have any real culture. It sounds like it was written by an excited 5-year-old boy cause he is watching Toy Story 2 for the 157th times. Well maybe not this article in particular, but most of them are.

Not too bad of a cast though, its far from being Batman Begins, I mean Norton can be compared to Bale, Tyler can be compared to Holmes - they are both extremely average - while you can compare Hurt with Neeson and Roth with Oldman but where

Im still afraid with that choice of director. The Transporter movies were crap while Unleashed was okay. I dont know. I like Ang Lee's Hulk.

Hurt is a great actor, but Elliot WAS Thunderbolt Ross. Can you think of any character Hurt has ever played that would make you think Thunderbolt?

Great cast. Great director. The Hulk is starting to look incredible.

I just hope Zak Penn doesn't fuck this one up like he did with the other Marvel franchises.

I liked Sam Elliott

Okay, it seems as if some kind of curse is attached to the original Hulk movie. I mean, okay, it wasn't that successful, but why recast EVERY SINGLE person when the first film's choice was excellent? You could argue about Bana, but Elliott was perfect for the role! What's next, Gary Oldman to play Brucie's father in a flashback?! Owen Wilson for Glen Talbot? Evangeline Lily for She-Hulk? (Okay, that's just a wet dream of mine)

Get back to France

The way I see it, the only way this movie can fail is due to the choice of director. They could've found a better one for this important project.
