    Eric Bana has no commitments after he's done with 'Romulus My Father', he also said that he'd be keen to reprise the role of Banner if it was done within a certain time frame.

    As for a possible replacement for Eric Bana, I'd go with Dougray Scot.

    Avi Arad knows that Eric Bana is a superb actor and Eric Bana admires the franchise

    http://www.moviehole.net has Eric Bana filming in some Romulus film right now. News is on there front page. Nothing on Hulk 2 yet.
     
  5. The first movie sucked majorly to all Hulk fans. The only thing that I remotely liked about it is that Eric Bana was in it. So by all means give the role of Bruce Banner to him again. I might even consider going to see it.

    I'm with you there buddy - sure it had its flaws but it definately didnt suck. It was just different from some peoples pre-conceived idea of how it should/was going to be.

    The CGI was 1st rate and as a Hulk fan (regardless of if you like the movie or not) surely must have geeked out at seeing the Hulk trashing the Army in the desert. Thats what we've been waiting years to see).

    But I digress, yeah - I 'd like to see Bana reprise the role.

    Yeah! What HE said.....but without the "freakin' idiot" part. It still just trips me out that the more people say they enjoyed the movie, the MORE others try to interject with a negative comment about "how the movie wasn't good..", and all that crap. Amazing. Three years later, and still with the hate.

    Honestly, I do hope they get Bana, and Connely, and Ang Lee back. They've all proved themselves to be amazing talents since Hulk.

    Eric Bana is one of the best modern actors out there. I really hope he comes back.

    Well, i do, they need to get on phone to Bana now and tell him its happening or he will sign up for other movies, if they cant get Bana they may as well wait 5 more years and do a re-start.

    Kevin Bacon's penis could be the Hulk.

    It turned invisible in hollow man.

    There's no need for a damn re-start. The first movie was a solid origin film. Different but good. Now the fun can begin. Who doesn't know The Hulk's origin anyways?

    Well thats what i am trying to say, the last thing i want is to wait another 5 years for another Hulk movie, but if marvel dont get their asses in gear and get in touch with Bana soon, he will be well within his rights to sign up for other movies coming out in 2008. If i was marvel, i would have phoned him as soon as Penn was announced to wright the script. But it seems they are dawdeling.

    Ang Lee for one. Anyone who points to the movie or TV show as the source for the Hulk's origin for two +.

    They did know the origins Dragon, they just chose to update it. Who would do gamma bomb testing in a desert these days, no one.

    Even Stan Lee said the original Hulk's origin was fabricated in a matter of minutes and he agreed it wouldn't make sense in today's world with what we know now compared to back then. I think the origin was improved but the dad's changing into Absorbing was just dumb.

    Why wouldn't it make sense, and Ang's origin make more sense? Regardless, it's fantasy and completely unrealistic. But the cataclysm of the bomb as birthing the Hulk is more fitting visually as well as symbolically. AND- makes for an anti-war statement. Ang's origin is just dull (Which is why he tried to enhance it by still inserting the visual of a nuclear blast).

    As for Stan's statements- he was simply giving the company explanation. Just as he signed off on Gwen Stacy dying in the comics after the fact, but recently said he didn't want her to die. Just like he said he could have made mechanical webshooters work in the Spidey movies after the film's release.

    Who tests nuclear type weapons in desert today Dragon, no one, there is no way the origin could remain the same.

    Just before the Iraq war they tested a new sonic bomb. So new weapons are always being tested. AND- Since the point of the Gamma Bomb is that it's an ANTI-NUKE, in that it doesn't cause radioactive residue- there would be every point in testing it. AND IT'S A GODDAMNED MOVIE. You show a gripping story. If we can deal with a fictional creature such as the Hulk, we can deal with fictional circumstances such as a bomb test :rolleyes:

    Actually you can have it both ways. Around the release of Hulk to theatres there was a news piece that the US was developing new gamma bombs. I even linked it a couple times in various threads.
    However there is no above ground testing these days. I once said before they could just have the underground bomb fail to fire, days later Bruce is trying to dismantle the bomb when it explodes(perhaps detonated on purpose). I wouldn't want Rick Jones around, and he's linked to the Capt. America character now anyway. Can contrive some reason for Bruce to be saving someone at the time. Gamma Bomb blast + Hulk. :up: :marv:
    Right? :hulk: But I guess that would only really work with a new film restarting the franchise.
    Another thought with the sequel is have a more potent gamma warhead missile sent to destroy the Hulk(huge blast, then have Hulk walk out from behind the dust cloud and see him regenerate the massive damage to his body as if it were nothing). And it stops him Hulking out to huge heights and keeps his colouring consistent(due to the great levels of gamma radiation he absorbed). Fix those things fans didn't like. Instead of having wierd changes between films, have a reason for it. Nothing challenges the suspension of disbelief more than inconsistency between sequels(atleast for me anyway). :down :mad:
