But Hulk and Iron Man are my fandom and so I approach their films from a much different perspective. And in Anghulk what I saw was Stan Lee's and PAD's material just getting ***-raped my AngLee and Schamus. Yes, Hulk should be serious and have a psychological aspect to it. But what good is that when Hulk isn't even allowed to be a character in his own movie and some Einstein thinks nanomeds, mutant poodles and Absorbing Dad are ok instead. Classic case of overthinking the material.
Superhero movie need humor as much as a love interest; they can certainly make the most of it, but many times they're just there because of following a formula and it's not very good.
And well, Hulk was as little of a character in Ang Lee's movie as he was in Leterrier's movie or in Avengers.
