    Still a huge fan of the Ang Lee Hulk with how well it conveyed character psychology and kept that at the forefront of the story. The Norton one was solid though as an action film, though on rewatches the Abomination fight scenes go on too long (the campus fight is enjoyable though)

      Norton was a fail cast and I think Ruffalo ended up also being a fail cast. I don't even know who could reasonably play the Hulk and Bruce Bannerbut it ain't those two

        I think Bana was the best of the three so far. He brought the right amount of intellect and frailty a Bruce should have before shedding himself and becoming the id of ids.

          Bana is best
          Norton being a farthuffing moron thought Marvel would let him make some jekyl and hyde character study tragedy of their fricking iron man spinoff.
          Ruffalo somehow got hulk nuetered for the sake of more ruffalo screentime.
          Bana was just Banner and Hulk was a CGI monstrosity as we all wanted

              thats not at all what he wanted. He wanted overlydramatic slop, and it was shot down a thousand times. Norton doesnt give a frick about comics, he wanted yet another egoproject

    Ang Lee Hulk, while visually shit, was the only Hulk that seemed to have the impossible strength and rage that I think of when I think of Hulk. How he got bigger and stronger when he was attacked and further angered made it feel like he could kick Superman's ass or something. Somehow the other Hulks seem like pussies compared to him.

      Ang Lee by far, like says, it's the only one that gets The Hulk's anger across, like the scene where he bursts out of containment and looks simultaneously like a giant rage-monster and a frightened toddler. They also got The Hulk jumping ridiculous distances right, that looked great in theatres.
      Norton wasn't a great casting choice, but him running around in the favelas speaking fluent portugrease was such a bizarrely stupid choice for the story, it was very hard to suspend disbelief, even for a movie about a man who turns into a giant monster when angry because he stood too close to a nuke. Why they didn't just set it in LA/ the remote American West I'll never know.

        this. Hulk gets buttfricked too frequently in all of his outtings, which is ridiculous given what Norton wanted to do. The idea should always be meek scientist turned unstoppable killing machine but here we are every couple minutes with Hulk getting buttfricked by like, a missile, or a magic antihulk device, completely trivializing the utility of big strong green guy

    I liked Norton's Bruce. He would've been a great addition to the Avenger's line up and might've had some actual chemistry with Black Widow. As for the Hulks, it's a tough call. I liked Norton's Hulk best but he's not really that impressive compared to what we saw in the other versions.

      Thor is still easily my favorite MCU movie and I don't see anything coming to dethrone it. These days I would have preferred if it did more with the fantasy realms to set itself apart from all the other superhero movies but when it came out it was still different enough to feel unique (at least coming at it as someone who hasn't read a single Thor comic).
      I saw the second one in the theater and I liked it at the time but I cannot remember a single thing about it today except the fakeout ending with Loki that they wasted on the garbage third movie.

    Why no matter what Bruce Banner is wearing prior to transforming into Hulk does Hulk suddenly have size 15x purple spandex shorts on? It's such a stupid oversight for the character of Hulk over the decades.

        Yes, but other physical laws of nature are observed and not broken in that universe. So his pants turning into 15x purple basketball shorts doesn't make any sense. It's fricking stupid.

          Stan Lee answered this question in an interview with Eric Spitznagel of Vanity Fair (March, 2011).

          VF: "If it weren’t for the Comics Code, would the Hulk’s pants have ripped off like his shirt"?

          Stan Lee: "I guess it probably would have. So occasionally the Code did some good things".

          VF: "Did you ever try to make sense of the Hulk’s magical purple pants? Why did they always conveniently remain intact while the rest of his clothes were ripped to shreds"?

          Stan Lee: "I just figured that Bruce Banner had probably been a friend of Reed Richards [Mr. Fantastic from the Fantastic Four], and Reed had given him some elastic trousers. There’s an explanation for everything, but you may not be technically advanced enough to follow me on all of this"
          There elastic pants. Satisfied?

            Stan Lee is a serial liar who did not create or write Hulk, that's why he never had a cameo in the most famous Marvel TV show.

    It's unironically Ruffalo in the first Avengers movie. He actually did a good job of playing a Bruce Banner who's just constantly exhausted and depressed that he has to contain a monster inside all the time. There's this one moment I really like when he transforms in the Helicarrier, just before he loses himself in uncontrollable rage, for a split second he looks at Natasha with this sad/scared expression like he knows he's about to hurt people but he can't stop it. It's a moment that shows good understanding of the character's struggle but gets overlooked because of how quippy the movie as a whole is.
    In Age of Ultron he's still pretty good although it's repetitive how he's just made to lose control by a villain again. After this the character quickly degrades into comic relief and Ruffalo absolutely stops trying.

    I miss the hulk being popular bros. There's a whole generation of kids now who aren't made familiar with the character's stories or iconic arcs, hell most people probably don't even realize he has a rogues gallery of villains to begin with. We could've had an actual running storyline with MCU Hulk if Disney and Universal had been willing to play ball with each other.
