Default Re: TIH vs. Ang Lee's Hulk

One would assume any Hulk fan's check list would have Hulk being portrayed as an actual character high up on it as well as both Banner and Hulk relating to/hating each other. IMO, both films failed to do that very important thing and I'd go so far as to say that's the single biggest obstacle to these movies being successful with the G/A so far. Other superheroes are still characters even when they put their tights on. But so far with Hulk(in live action) the moment Bruce changes then the character goes into limbo and all we have is an FX/action scene. And no body language BS will ever be able to adequately replace dialog from the Hulk(and 5-6 spoken words throughout the film just comes off as an insult to the character and not even close enough to really count).

Much as messing with the 616 origin irritated me, THIS is what really always got my goat.

2015 will not only see the MCU beat the HP franchise for the #1 WW spot but it will also see Marvel Studios pass Pixar in terms of WW grosses($8.585 billion). Marvel Studios/MCU avg. annual profit: $621m(there ain't none higher. HP was the closest runner up with $541m when it was active).
