If the reboot gets destroyed critically then it won't matter what 10 second cameo it makes ..... which is why Superman had a problem getting out of the first weekend.

Hulk never had any box office or critical success before TIH so there was no foundation there. Marvel also crapped the bed promoting TIH. Moreover ... not with me personally, but for the average non-comic book enthusiast the big green monster is a hard hero to relate to.
