I like Eric Bana, but uh....This is still cool.

I thought it was going Direct-to-Video. Seems like a big name to be putting on a direct title.

That's cool, but let's keep in mind that Norton has been in his share of crap.

Ugh.  I loved Eric Bana in the first one.  Would this be the first Marvel property where they've changed the lead actor?

I like Ed Norton.  And he seems perfect for the Banner role.

Bana was okay,  but...  He was nowhere near dorky enough.  It was like those movies where they take the really hot woman,  dress her down for the first part and pretend you can't tell she's really attractive, then give her a makeover and she's gorgeous. 

They put Bana in a bike helmet, but he still looks like Bana as soon as he takes the helmet off.

Someone like Ed Norton or Steve Carell just feels better for a slightly dorky Banner who's repressing his rage.

Hmm, Bana used to be normal looking (if that makes sense). He started off as a goofy comedian at that -- and his breakthrough role was when he moved into drama and turned into a psychopathic fatass (which is how most people first came to know him):

(on the right)



Pre Chopper Bana:



I think it was only after Troy that he became associated with action roles, and somehow morphed into a leading man type. At the time Hulk was made though, he was a good fit.

Maybe it's just the shadows, but Bana's got that Jack Burton look down in the first pick.  Perhaps we've found the actor needed for Big Trouble in Little China 2.

Stuntman Mike is the only actor needed for Jack Burton in Big Trouble in Little China 2.  End of the discussion.

Stuntman Mike is 56 years old.  56 year old people driving as fast as they can see is a scary thought.

Apparently, they're finally suppposed to show a trailer for this on Wed. at 9:56 p.m. ET, on MTV, MTVU, MTV2, FH1, Spike TV, Nick at Nite, and CMT.  Not that I really expect anyone to care enough to wait at their TV's for the trailer to come on.  Mostly I just find it out that they've waited until almost exactly three months before the movie releases to show a trailer for it.  Did it just take them this long to get to a point where they were comfortable with how the special effects looked?

Might be it doesn't have Iron Man level budget.

It could be the shitty quality, but the CGI actually looks worse than the last one.

Bana apparently lost a lot of enthusiasm in being the Hulk after his experience with Ang Lee. I believe he said he'd never been on a more serious movie set.

On a related note, apparently Norton and Marvel are banging heads over the final cut of this new film.

If only we were getting Tim Roth vs. Edward Norton instead of CGI Hulk vs. CGI Abomination.

Yeah, Hulk is still just too shiny. I didn't realize Ed Norton, Tim Roth and Liv Tyler were in this thing. I thought they'd cast cheap unknowns. I'm thinking the fact that I haven't really heard much about it is not a good sign of its quality.

For those who don't know, the picture quality on the movieweb site is slightly better than the earlier mentioned link.  As for why I don't like it, it's because the Abomination/Hulk showdown looks like pure unfiltered crap.  Also the cheesy dramatic music they're playing when the two charge and leap at each other in what looks it could be a trailer for a sequel to the Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects fighting game, doesn't fill me with a lot of confidence.

It wasn't the fight scene that convinced me.  Ed Norton looks to be doing a good job with Banner, and I'm interested to see if they can really explore the character.

That's great and all, but as good as all the character work might be leading up to it, I just have little desire to watch a movie where I expect the climax to suck.

My problem with that trailer is that it removed all of the surprise of the film and pretty much gave me an idea of how the entire thing plays out.

This one was so damn blatent.  Geez I wonder what the last 10 minutes of the movie is going to be? Bruce Banner reaching the end of his character arc to embrace his alter-ego instead of shunning it, fighting the Abomination on the city streets, and la de freaking dah.

If the meat of your trailer is the last 30 minutes then yeah, fuck that.  I'll still see it but shit.  They're probably going to surprise everyone with an Avengers setup that includes an intelligent Hulk.  Oh, and The Matrix had the best trailer that didn't ruin anything.

For crissakes. He's the Hulk. Damn whether you the know outcome or not. It's just cool to watch him smash shit.

I think the Bana one succeeded in that respect too... Don't know why there's so much hate for it.
