Man, I still hate that "video game" cover art. They should have gone with the Norton/Hulk theatrical poster.

Wonder if different release / disc-levels will get different covers - to entice the "uber-geek" completists to buy all versions???

All I give a crap about is getting my hands on the extended version. If a 2-disc set shows up with theatrical + extras, and extended... then I'm in. I could give a rat's about some stupid digital copy - if what's posted here is what the dang thing is. "Whoopie" indeed. :/

Well if you have decent software you can rip it to your PC and play the files back anyway. :? Big whoop.

Again, the director's already said there isn't going to be any extended edition, so I wouldn't go holding your breath. An extensive amount of deleted scenes are the best we can hope for.

During interviews LL has contradicted himself a number of times on several issues related to the film, and what we'll see included with the home release, so I'll remain guarded, but hopeful... until I see the various versions for myself.

Frankly, if they don't cough up the version Norton championed prior to all the hubbub between him & Marvel, I think Universal could be missing a big opportunity. If Ed's preferred cut doesn't hit shelves simultaneously with the theatrical cut, perhaps it will materialize down the road a ways.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Marvel put out SUPER MEGA EXTENDED OMG editions of Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, etc. when the Avengers movie hits. Its all about the cash, man.

Hadn't thought that far ahead, but I can see it happening... to ride the coat tails of The Avengers - especially if that movie is really well-done and rakes in major B.O. bucks. Question is... can I wait THAT long??? :lol:

Long story short, I LOVED it! Superior to the first film in every way. This film fit the character more than the first film ever did. No artsy-fartsy crap to be found here! The film is fast-paced, the story and characters are well-concieved, the music totally fit the mood of the film, and the action is, as the title put it, incredible. The Hulk truly as a destructive Godzilla flair to him! He looks much meaner here! (Edward Norton was so much better for the role than Eric Bana, IMHO.) The Abomination was awesome as well! There's also some more tongue-in-cheek humor and some fun Hulk-related references. And the cameos (by Stan Lee, Lou Ferrigno, and veteran Canadian voice actor Paul Soles, the voice of Bruce Banner in the 60s cartoon) totally ROCK!!!!



I loved this Movie as well... Just wish I could see the Norton Cut... Wondering if they actually show the gun in his mouth?
If you haven't seen this movie, please do so! This is the Hulk movie we should've gotten in the first place

Marvel is calling The Incredible Hulk a success.
From yahoo: Latest "Hulk" may not spawn a sequel

"We're happy with the financial results, even if they (only) reach the first film's levels," a Marvel insider insisted. "Having a sequel is not the definition of success."

"Hollywood is always about perception," said David Davis, managing partner and entertainment analyst at Arpeggio Partners in Los Angeles. "The first Hulk (movie) had such high expectations after the NBC-Universal merger and was supposed to be critical-favorite Ang Lee's breakout commercial blockbuster.

"Then with the new Hulk film, Marvel was able to underplay the importance of the success after the great success of 'Iron Man' this summer," Davis said. "So the new one overdelivered, relative to its underpromise."

From CBR : July 28th Comic Reel
DEADPOOL
Will it be Ryan Reynolds? Kevin Feige said for certain, and told CBR News.
In that panel, he also confirmed there would be a sequel to the Ed Norton-fueled "Incredible Hulk" movie.


Feige confirmed for a fact that Ryan Reynolds will be Deadpool.

Good news and bad news. Lets start with good. Target has some exclusive packaging that can get you around the crappy video game cover of the special edition:

Now the bad news.


So apparently the Blu-_Ray has deleted scenes that the special edition doesn't. BLASPHEMY.

Here’s the actual breakdown of what footage is on each edition:

* On the Hulk bonus disc (part of the 3 disc collection) there are 28:47 minutes of deleted scenes
* On the standard DVD, there are 13:19 minutes of deleted scenes
* On the Blu-ray version, there are 43:50 minutes of deleted scenes

I HATE YOU, BLU RAY! Its keeping poor folks like me from getting the full Hulk experience. :(

That's not true, actually. The 13 minutes of deleted scenes are on the single-disc DVD and the first disc of the 3-disc set, and the 29 minutes of deleted scenes are on the second disc of the 3-disc set, making for 42 minutes of total deleted scenes in the 3-disc set. It's the same as the Blu-Ray.

Here's an excellent review which goes over everything the 3-disc set has to offer in great detail:

So I finally dug into the 3 disc set.

Marvel are completely RETARDED for forcing some of these deleted scenes to be cut (particularly all the scenes with Doc Samson). Having them in the movie, the movie would have made A LOT more sense in some parts... not only that, a lot of these scenes are the best written and best acted in the whole movie... No wonder Ed Norton and Louis Leterrier were pissed. Lets hope Norton can come back for the Avengers.

Anyway, the 3 disc set is the only way to go because you get all the important deleted scenes (the single disc version has throwaway deleted scenes in it). I'd give the movie a 3/5, but if I consider the deleted scenes I'd give it a 3.5 or a 4... they're that good. THe alternate opening is also amazing and should have been in the movie (Cap cameo or not).

As for the third disc, its just a digital copy, so its a waste of a disc. Not only that, but when I tried to put the digital copy onto my iPod, it wouldn't load. It plays in iTunes, but my iPod starts to load it, then it stops... so the damn thing doesn't even work.

The deleted scenes with Doc Samson were great (and make the movie make much more sense story-wise), as was William Hurt's insane "harnessing god" speech. And the alternate opening was bad ass on just about every level.

I just saw this today and holy s--- it is awesome. I was yelling out loud in my living room,just like with Iron Man.

Toho should actually spend some money and make a Godzilla movie like this. Imagine Godzilla and Gigan with CGI of this quality smashing each other up with buildings and jumping around like they do in the video games.

It's funny how this summer I didn't want to go to all three of the big superhero movies,since I was feeling a little burnt out,so I only saw Dark Knight in the theater. Well,it turns out that underneath all the "OMG Heath Ledger died!!1" hype TDK wasn't as entertaining as Iron Man or Hulk.

I disagree with the last statement. TDK had no fat on it at all and was a much tenser experience, at least for me.

But I hate to hear that you missed Iron Man and the Hulk in theaters. Those are big screen movies. You gotta see em that way first! :wink:

Its funny but I think many of us(myself prime among the list) get too "critic-y" like that fat comic guy in the Simpsons. And we can sometimes overlook how awesome many things are. Like Kidnick I remember thinking "geez I'm sick of comic movies", but lets face it, this last summer ruled. DK was to me one of the all time greats, Ironman was plain enjoyable, and Hulk was what a good hulk movie should have been all along. Add to that "Wall-E"(which I think is a fantastic movie period) and we really have had some great movies the last year.(Hell add Cloverfield to the list)
