In a report from Toy Fair Germany, an AICN scooper named Mark Single claims to have seen what he believes to be the first trailer for Universal’s The Incredible Hulk prequel/reboot. Here is the description:
“It was great to see the first footage of the INCREDIBLE HULK. I think the Ang Lee movie was terrible, but I have a lot of faith in this one.
“[It] opens with Edward Norton meditating. We see images of a lab, experiments, Banner escaping from the (Russian?) military (led by William Hurt and Tim Roth), running in the streets, kissing Liv Tyler, guns, shooting, more runningâ€¦ The ‘trailer’ ends with Abomination walking towards Hulk. Remember the end of Rocky III? Apollo Creed wants to hit Rocky in their friendly duel? That’s exactly the way the trailer ends. Abomination wants to hit Hulk. Hulk wants to hit Abomination, but before it actually happens the trailer is over. Abomination looks like a Hulk with the Voldemort face from the first Harry Potter movie. A really mean motha. He sure is a great opponent. I thought the shown footage was awesome. It promises much more action than the Ang Lee movie, a great love story and an even greater fight. Edward Norton makes a great Bruce Banner. He isn’t that muscular which makes his transformation into Hulk much more interesting and exciting. Imagine John Cena as Bruce Banner! That would be completely wrong, wouldn’t it?”
The big complaint about Ang Lee’s Hulk (aside from some of the early CG) was the lack of action. I mean, what was with that dog fight anyways? This new trailer seems to tackle that conception head on, saying to fans “This time it will be different.” And I love the idea of that. However, in a day and age when secrets are slowly released through officially filtered channels, I’m surprised they would give away both The Hulk and Abomination in the first trailer. But hey, like I said, maybe that’s they need to in order to convey this new movie more action message.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
