It was probably at Marvel's behest that it was not saved for the end credits easter egg (which was probably the original intention), because they wanted to put Robert Downy Jr. in the commercials in hopes of piggybacking on Iron Man's success.
The movies came out just over a month apart, I'm sure they didn't recut Hulk in that short span.
