I was under the impression no one went to see hulk for two major other reasons(ang lee's existence and the films' quality in itself).

It's an interesting point though. I find myself curious just how much worse IM3 would have done had it opened 2 months after Avengers in 2012(ignoring TDKR).
Seems like you wanna ride that hype wave fast and ready no?

"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 45 years ago into the Lantern core, flight testing in the midst of the Viet war. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
