    Look Ang Lee's Hulk is much maligned (and justifiable IMHO) but there are definitely some people who really enjoy it. Since time wise, overall story wise*, and character background wise it could POSSIBLY still be in canon within the MCU; I was wondering how many of you consider it to be?

    *There are definitely some plot holes to be sure.

    My take is that I'd have to say no it's not canon. Aside from the obvious continuity errors it would introduce: the relationship between the Ross', Betty's injury during the first Hulk out, the fact that the original Hulk out took place at a completely different laboratory, and the manner of Banner gaining his powers...it still doesn't fit. Why? Because the entire tone and characterization doesn't fit with TIH/Avengers at all. It clearly just doesn't go.

    So what are your thoughts?

    Just curious from some of the posts I read on here. No need to get offended, I doubt this thread really ruined your day.

    It's as much canon as that godawful Captain America film from the 90s.

    I ask a question...and that immediately makes you think I was offended or it ruined my day? Man, it must suck for anyone to ask you anything.

    Why ask me why I asked him a question?

    Haha, this.

    Nope, plain and simple. Everything from IM on is canon, nothing before that is.

    Cannon or not, it's better than TIH.

    I like it better than TIH as well, but it's not canon.

    IH showed Hulk's origins and they weren't the origins from Ang Lee's Hulk. So the movies aren't connected at all.

    Ditto. I wish it were canon, but its really, direly not compatible with TIH.

    I've never seen it, there seems to be mixed opinions here.

    Well this place is kinda crazy sometimes. Only here could you find a plethora of people willing to actually admit they like this film. If you go ask the GA, it's almost universally reviled as a terrible movie. And rightly so.

    Yeah, that's why I started this thread. I've seen quite a bit of praise about the film here and I've also seen people refer to it within the wider context of the MCU. So I was curious as to just how many people felt that way. I'm glad it's turning into a landslide.

    With all the debate over Cap's helmet in the CA and Avengers, I'm surprised no one brought up the big motorcyle helmet as an option.... I mean.... Look at it...

    No but seriously, in regards to the original question, no, I don't consider it canon. I prefer to pretend it didn't happen.

    It clearly isn't. We know that Incredible Hulk is canon and it contradicts stuff that happens in Hulk, such as the origin.
