The Incredible Hulk

Casting Marvel and ABC's 'Incredible Hulk'

by Chris Harnick, posted Jan 15th 2011 2:00PM
HulkIn order to make the Hulk "SMASH!," ABC is going to need the right leading man.

No matter the incarnation, Bruce Banner is a genius. He has trouble relating to others and is emotionally withdrawn, yet pines after and sometimes gets the girl: Betty Ross. Banner designed the gamma bomb that transformed him into the Hulk. His transformations generally come when his emotions get the best of him, you probably wouldn't like him when he's angry.

Whoever plays Betty Ross needs to be able to pull of the a certain sweetness, demonstrate intellect with ease, but not be afraid to get her hands dirty.

Take a look at who we think could fill Bruce Banner's purple pants and do Betty Ross justice.

Death of the Swamp Thing

Swamp Thing the seriesA television obituary has slipped through the cracks. Dick Durock has passed away. Who is Dick Durock, you ask? Why, he played the title character in the Swamp Thing movie written and directed by Wes Craven and its subsequent poor follow-up, as well as the television series based on the movies. Also, he played an evil Hulk in The Incredible Hulk television series and was a stuntman on various television shows including Star Trek.

I remember watching that Incredible Hulk episode as a kid, and my first thought was "that second Hulk isn't anywhere near as muscular as the first." Still, in his prime Dick Durock could have undoubtedly kicked my ass.

Just to prove how tough Dick Durock was ... I don't know many people who have long battles with pancreatic cancer. Usually, that takes you out in a hurry. If you could stand up to Lou Ferrigno, pancreatic cancer was in for one hell of a fight.

Hulk dance with puny humans

by Brad Trechak, posted Aug 5th 2009 1:02PM
The Incredible HulkSometimes the news is just too good to be true. Former television star of The Incredible Hulk and still hulk-y looking guy Lou Ferrigno is rumored to be signing up for Dancing with the Stars. Between this and his cameos in the Hulk movies and I Love You, Man, his star is really starting to shine again. Not bad for a guy pushing 60 years old.

I've actually met Lou Ferrigno on a couple of occasions at various sci-fi and comic conventions, and he's always been a nice guy to everyone getting an autograph. I'm curious how his well-documented hearing problems will affect his dancing. If he does manage to overcome them and do well on the show, I'll be the first guy cheering for him.

Of course, I'd be even more impressed if he lost the contest, turned green with rage, and then went on a rampage beating the crap out of the judges and all the other contestants. There's an episode of DWTS that I would watch.

One more Comic Con tidbit ... Planet Hulk trailer

by Brad Trechak, posted Jul 30th 2009 11:03AM
Planet HulkOne of Marvel's upcoming projects is a new direct-to-DVD animated movie called Planet Hulk. It's based on the comic story of the same name. It looks to be a pretty faithful adaption. I have read the original story and thought was good.

It's a huge story, though, and I doubt they'll fit all the details in a 90-minute movie (or however long it is). If the DVD has big sales, will Marvel release the sequel story in which The Hulk returns to Earth and fights the other Marvel heroes as a DVD as well?

Even though I liked Planet Hulk, there are other, better stories I'd love to see released as a DVD animated movie. Hey, DC, how about putting The Dark Knight Returns on a DVD (a real movie and not the cheap animotion Watchmen DVD)? Marvel, where's my animated movie of Marvel Zombies?

The trailer is after the jump so you can judge for yourself. Which comic storyline would you be interested in seeing animated?

The complete series sets seem to be coming fast and furious these days, though there really isn't anything here that I want to spend the cash on (already have The Outer Limits). I have the first Man From U.N.C.L.E. complete series set that Time-Life did several months ago (this one is from Warner). The Starlost? Maybe as a curiosity, but I doubt it. The Incredible Hulk? Eh.
