YES! We're getting a Hulk sequel!

This isn't really news or anything, but I was watching G4 today and there was a blurb on their crawl that mentioned Tim Roth confirming he had a 3-picture "Abomination" contract, and there is a sequel script allegedly being developed. Like I said, nothing really newsworthy but it's nice to hear some sequel talk out there.
 
****ing awesome:) I love what they did with the first film!
 
Well, that report doesn't surprise me. But it's not BAD news for the green machine. Bad news would be that Marvel isn't interested in re-visiting the story, which we know they are. They just have so many stories they want to tell right now. They'll come back to the Hulk. I'm confident with that.
 
The Hulk will be in the Avengers movie, but that's it.

Both films failed to BO success'
 
Both Hulk movies were profitable. Not Iron Man or Dark Knight level, but enough to make it worthwhile to make more..
 
i have a sick feeling that we may not get another hulk movie nor norton and ill be very upset. i mean im glad he will be in the avengers but come on man !


WE NEED NEWS NOW !! :csad: :bh:
 
You should have seen how slow news was on the first - and that movie we knew was actually being made.
 
Do we know on way or another that Norton will definitely be in the Avengers?
 
There isn't an everyman quality to Hulk because in the Hulk movies he's not trying to just live his life everyday while also being a super hero.

He's trying to cure a terrible affliction, all the while avoiding gov. officials trying to take control of it. He's afraid of what he does/may do when he looses control.....i would say that's very much 'everyman' quality.

I think the past two movies pretty much suffer from what a friend of mine told me he hated about the two movies; it's hard to connect to a cgi character, that's suppose to be flesh and blood, but obviously doesn't look it. When he said this to me, it kinda made sense. It explains why the tv series of the 70's was such a hit, yet the movies seems to be lacking..something...the cgi take away Hulks humanity. Especially when the cgi is less that believable.

i disagree with that, i think the CG in both films had things that didnt help people connect with it. Ang's CG was just way too big and it took too long for him to get there, people just didnt care by the time he was on screen, the CG in TIH, was average IMO and Hulk as a character didnt exist, there was nothing there to connect with. I think for people to connect with Hulk, Banner and their whole backstory has to be done well, both movies didnt do that IMO.

I agree with you on the cg. The second movie had more 'everyman' quality to it, but the cg was too cartoony for ppl to take seriously. The best Hulk shot in TIH was when the face of the Hulk is first shown in the bottle plant, yet the worst shots were during his 'full body reveal' after he jumps out of the overpass during the campus scene. They should have spent wwwaaaayyyyy more time perfecting the daylight scenes than the night/dark scenes imo..but that a whole other topic. I think the best balance would be to have a great story with a Hulk that was done with 'Prosthetics' like Juggernault in X3.
 
I agree with the disconnect on a CG Hulk.

But I think the problem with CG Hulk in both movies is that there's so little of him. And when I say that, I mean he comes off as very one note in both movies. Audiences don't get to really know the Hulk and like the Hulk.

Hulk was made to be very base in these movies. While Hulk is angry strong and all that, full of rage, he has other parts of his personality I felt the movies did not explore.

Gollum was CG and motion captured and all that, but they still made Gollum a living, breathing character with a full arc that actually actively interacted and conversed with the main characters.

If it makes any sense at all, Hulk was not a very active, participatory character in these movies. I think if audiences saw more of Hulk, and Hulk was made to be more faceted and sympathetic to the audiences, people would've liked it more.

I mean that CG Marvel short where Hulk saves the puppy is awesome. It's not only hilarious, but it tells you something about the character in that the Hulk is really just a big, angry little kid. No one in the movies really makes this discovery or sees that. I spoke with Fred Tatasciore who is the VA for animated Hulk who did that short. I think he said he just came up with that bit on the fly, it was improvised. And I think Tatasciore does a great job in presenting those sides of Hulk even though Hulk has to speak in the third person with that grunting, gruff voice all the time with barely any room to go beyond that.
 
so you guys don't want a cgi hulk ? what have a guy wear prosthetics and paint him green ? :whatever:
 
It's not the CG that's the problem, it's the lack of personality.
 
I thought there was personality in TiH. We definately saw it when Hulk looked at Ross at the college campus; we saw it during the cave scene; we saw it at the end of the movie. Heck, we even saw the affection Hulk had for Betty while on top of Stern's lab table. Now I agree we could have more, a lot more if the Hulk started speaking more. But I'll tell you guys that people will laugh in the theater if it's not done right. The "puny human" line from Ang's Hulk was just perfect.
 
dcHulk, they were good. But they were too little.

The puny hulk in the first movie was also good, but it was just one small bit that Ang Lee did not exploit enough.

Put something like that in TIH along with a lot more and you get a much more sympathetic, and interesting character to connect with the audiences.

The point is, audiences don't connect with the CG Hulk that much.

I imagine the feeling was if Hulk talked or conversed more in the Hulk language audiences would find that silly. So in both movies they kept it to the absolute bare minimum. I think Hulk could've talked more.

I will agree to that.
 
One thing that was missing in TIH (or I felt was) that was in Ang's movie and done pretty well was that if they just left Hulk alone, he wouldnt harm anybody, thats were TIH failed on the personality of The Hulk IMO, were as in Ang's movie they got that right, it was just other things they got wrong.
 
I felt that Hulk in TIH had a personality, he had attitude but it wasn't exposed enough.

In general I felt that TIH was just a big teaser of everything that the franchise can offer. They touched on a lot of subjects in the film but never really elaborated on them.

Maybe it's because Norton said he intentionally left stuff out in this first film as he had it all envisioned as a trilogy so even the origin of Hulk would be "spooled" out through sequels. But it looks like Norton left too much out that may never be picked up on as there is no news on TIH2 yet but I remember reading an interview from Gale Ann Hurd where she said that Marvel's slate for films after The Avengers are going to be released this year but I am not sure when, think it may be summer.

That's what I'm holding out (and hoping) for.
 
if a TIH 2 and 3 are released, they need to be filmed back to back and should be filmed at the same time avengers is being filmed so we arent waiting 5 years for two movies.
