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.
Ang's movie came closest to Hulk actually being a personality himself and showing that resentment towards Banner. The "Puny human" scene in the mirror was great. There could have, and should have been more of that really.
