That's stupid! Whatever. I just hope that The Avengers won't be a bad movie. Try rebooting that!

Sounds like Marvel is fucking up...this will be the third Hulk in as many movies as he's supposed to appear. Don Cheadle was cool in IM2 (IMO), but changing actors every other movie isn't cool to me. I'm still anxious for Avengers but I hope they don't "replace" Thor & Captain America's actors after their movies come out either.

Edward Norton wanted to come back, but they decided to replace him.

Edward Norton is also a control freak and a bit of a diva on set. Im not saying he should be replaced but I think the blame lies in both camps.

That shit pissed me off but I co-sign what you said ^^ Ed Norton is a great actor but if he's being a dick then I can understand why Marvel would choose not to re-cast him. Sucks as a fan of both the Avengers and Ed Norton though. I don't think anyone benfits from this in the end.

just keep him in hulk mode the whole time like the tv series, id be good with that.

^boom! lol

this is fuckin gay. the whole point of the crossovers and the build-up was so that the original actors would play in the avengers movie.

they're going to ruin this, there's still like two years lol

I can already tell that this movie is going to be crap. Why can't they get it RIGHT?!

07-14-2010, 04:37 PM
damn,theres goes another flick down the crapper

Too bad Bill Bixby is gone..put back Lou Ferrigno when he's in Hulk mode, better than that CG jolly-green giant looking dumbfuck they use now.

07-14-2010, 06:55 PM
Lol, I was gonna say the same thing about ferrigno. I don't see why the hulk has to be so big anyway, it's silly. I like the idea of a musclebound (yet athletic) human rather then a juggernaut. It just looks foolish. It's not even vaguely human. The fact he gets bigger as he gets madder just turns the character into an anger boner which kills the Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde duality. There's also no reason for him to be green btw. That was just to make him look radioactive because he was... On top of that his original radioactive color was grayish until retconning.

I'd be much happier with a robust looking human with herculean strength tied to his anger. I'd also like to see the anger make him go crazy when he's in hulk mode which makes him hate the ability. Like Heracles. He gets strong and starts killing people when he gets mad. It's not a blessing, it's a barely controlled curse. Played by Gerald Butler dressed vaguely like Conan the barbarian (aka barely at all.) You'd get people to see that. I mean she hulk was sexy looking, why does the hulk have to look like a monster. I can deal with green skin (Martian man hunter or even piccolo). I can deal with stupid jacked (Mr. Hyde from the league is awesome) but both is stupid.

Why are they acting like its imperative that the Hulk be in this movie anyway?

Aside from The Ultimates, the Hulk was only in the Avengers for a handful of issues, and most of the larger scale stories they could be doing with these characters wouldn't even benefit from the Hulk being there.

Why not ditch the Hulk and give his slot to a lesser known character with more actual history with the team; like Black Panther, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Ms. Marvel, etc? These characters would never carry a movie, or tv series on their own like Hulk and could use the exposure lol

They're probably going to make the plot of the movie about the Avengers tasked to subdue the Hulk or some dumb, basic shit like that.

^that's what i was thinking they were gonna do too.
