CS has posted this updated plot synopsis for Universal’s remake/sequel/do-over of The Incredible Hulk:
The explosive, action-packed adventure in one of the all-time most popular superhero sagas unfolds with a cure in reach for the world’s most primal force of fury: “The Incredible Hulk.” We find scientist Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) living in shadows, scouring the planet for an antidote. But the warmongers who dream of abusing his powers won’t leave him alone, nor will his need to be with the only woman he has ever loved, Betty Ross (Liv Tyler).
Upon returning to civilization, our brilliant doctor is ruthlessly pursued by The Abomination (Tim Roth)–a nightmarish beast of pure adrenaline and aggression whose powers match The Hulk’s own. A fight of comic-book proportions ensues as Banner must call upon the hero within to rescue New York City from total destruction. And on June 13, 2008…one scientist must make an agonizing final choice–accept a peaceful life as Bruce Banner or the creature he could permanently become: The Incredible Hulk.
Looks like the climax of the film will take place in New York City. San Francisco didn’t work out so great the first time around. It probably also would have helped if Ang Lee did a few less flashback sequences and gave The Hulk something more interesting than some mutant dogs to destroy. The new story sounds good, and I can’t complain about Louis Leterrier’s casting choices (Edward Norton, Tim Roth, William Hurt). I’m sure we’ll hear and possibly see more at Comic Con later this week.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
