    I'm so excited they'll be using the piano music from the TV show. But I have a feeling I'm not going to like the look of Abomination though. Something tells me it will be bad CGI along the lines of the Rock's character at the end of Mummy Returns.

    Great stuff, thanks for posting this, I love the tip of the hat to fans of the show with the "walking away" music, awesome. Abomination sounds cool looking.

    We don’t go against anything that the first one established, but it’s brand new, a fresh start. GOOD!

    It’s gamma-based. It’s very important that both monsters are the same thing. Both men are opposite sides of the same coin. GOOD!

    Yeah, we are keeping the ears GOOD!

    I didn’t want to put too many villains [in the film]. GOOD!

    We got the rights so that’ll be in the movie
    GOOD!

    we haven’t finished shooting. BAD!

    he has a scar on the cheek and his jaw
    REALLY BAD!

    Obviously this interview was taken before filming wrapped, unless they still have some minor things to finish up.

    From elements taken from Ed Norton's face. I'd say that's good.

    I have absolutely no confidence in this director.

    Still, the cast is great and if the script is good then they might be able to make it work. I'm more excited about this than any other Marvel film in recent years, though.


    Oh and I hope that "sad walking away music" thing wasn't a joke!

    Not that i notice. At that's my only gripe. Hulk is NOT sopposed to have a scar!

    That's cool...Hopefully we will also see some Jack Kirby, Herb Trimpe and Sal Buscema references.

    Sod Bruce Jones, his run was awful...but they should definitely put in some nod to Bill Mantlo: He and Sal Buscema defined the Hulk for a generation, and given what happened to him the man deserves some small tribute.

    I don't know if Norton has one for real but in this official film shot you can make out a small scar on his left cheek. It's in pretty much the same place as the the Hulk concept art, but a good deal more subtle.

    I certainly don't want to start any type of discussion like I see in other places around here over things like "perma-white" and such, but I do find it odd that the Hulk will have a scar he can't heal. I'm more than willing to overlook it though, as long as this movie gets things right. I, like others, have no real trust in Leterrier at all, but on the flipside, Norton is such a brilliant actor and when I look at him, he IS Bruce Banner. No film before has ever had me this excited and worried at the same time. '08 has a lot of huge movies, let's hope this is one of them...

    For the record, the "sad walking away music" was called "The Lonely Man" and was written by Joe Harnell.

    And only the hardest of hardcore Hulk fans has the disco version:

    The scars are way too noticeable. I don't understand why they're not using the original Hulk CGI model. It's really under appreciated.

    EDIT: Wait... I just realized why... New toys...

    Damn Hollywood.

    also different company, i doubt ILM would give R&H their model or even if they could, Marvel dont want anything to do with the first one.

    Yeah, **** reboots. :woot:

    Though I'm not sure about some of the criticism directed towards the scarring. I posted this in another thread, but this section of the forum doesn't get as much traffic as others:

    And I agree with you about the model used in Hulk. I had almost zero problems with that aspect of the film, and I still can't abide, at all, the unflinching derision of the special effects and CGI. I was blown away by the realism at the time (barring a few shots early in the film), and I still think it looks great.

    And, finally, I hear the lack of confidence in this director. Ang could have made some great films here.

    So if Abomination isn't gonna look reptilian(scales),does that mean he won't be green either,is he gonna look like Mr.Hyde from "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen"?
