It's always about who is playing Banner with Hollywood so a movie without that actor getting all the narrative attention probably seems outrageous to them.
Why wouldn't they? All the best Hulk runs have a strong emphasis on Banner as a character. Yes, even the Peter David run: the Professor Hulk is essentially "Banner in the Hulk's body."
