CS! berichtet über die NY Comic-Con...
Universal Pictures presented The Incredible Hulk at the New York Comic-Con today where it was revealed that Lou Ferrigno's role in the film is not just a cameo.
Director Louis Leterrier offered Ferrigno a job doing the voice of the Hulk saying "Hulk Smash!" at the panel. We're not sure if he was just joking about that, but Ferrigno is definitely involved.
They also confirmed that Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark will appear in the movie and they showed a clip of Downey Jr. walking into a seedy bar and meeting General Thunderbolt Ross (William Hurt) to talk about his "problem".
They also showed some clips of Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth) talking to Ross about being given a "super venom" that would turn him into a "Super soldier".
They showed a bit of that process and then they showed an extended scene of Banner being chased by Ross and the army and fighting with Blonsky (in non-Abomination) form, which makes up a good part of the new trailer that will be in front of Iron Man. [...]
Bei CS! gibt es ein Statement von Edward Norton...
[...] Like so many people I've loved the story of The Hulk since I was a kid, so it was thrilling when Marvel asked me to write and help produce an altogether new screen incarnation, as well as play Bruce Banner. I grew up reading Marvel Comics and always loved the mythic dimension and contemporary themes in the stories, and I’m proud of the script I wrote. In every phase of production, including the editing, working with Louis Leterrier has been wonderful...I've never had a better partner, and the collaboration with all the rest of the creative team has been terrific. Every good movie gets forged through collaboration, and different ideas among people who are all committed and respect the validity of each other's opinions is the heart of filmmaking. Regrettably, our healthy process, which is and should be a private matter, was misrepresented publicly as a 'dispute,' seized on by people looking for a good story, and has been distorted to such a degree that it risks distracting from the film itself, which Marvel, Universal and I refuse to let happen. It has always been my firm conviction that films should speak for themselves and that knowing too much about how they are made diminishes the magic of watching them. All of us believe The Incredible Hulk will excite old fans and create new ones and be a huge hit...our focus has always been to deliver the Hulk that people have been waiting for and keep the worldwide love affair with the big green guy going strong.
Wie EW.com meldet, gibt es Stress hinter den Kulissen von "The Incredible Hulk" - wegen der finalen Schnittfassung des Films will Edward Norton keine Werbung dafür machen...
[...] Norton and the film's director, Louis Leterrier (The Transporter), campaigned for a longer, more detailed film. Marvel Studios wanted a faster, leaner one. Marvel won. These creative arguments happen in Hollywood a lot but usually remain a secret. This time, they didn't. So Norton isn't talking, and others are ready to lay the blame - well, everywhere. ''It's as much Marvel's fault as it is Edward's,'' Leterrier says. ''And my fault. It's everybody's fault! Or no one's fault, in a way. I regret that [Marvel and Norton] didn't come to an agreement where we could've all worked together.'' [...]

[...] "I really wanted to justify [Abomination's] appearance. I really wanted to wrap my head around the original scaley-with-big-ears monster that was in the comic book, but I couldn't justify it. The guy isn't crossed with a fish; he's not crossed with a lizard. Just like the Hulk he's an über-human - his body, everything, grows out. And the way he gets injected with the serum, he's shot in the skin and the muscles, and shot inside the spine. That makes his bones grow thicker and bigger and longer, making him a super-weapon. So he's got that spine that flares out, which becomes a weapon. He’s got elbows that stick out and become these martial arts, Chinese knives - things that can slash back and forth. He's got this tongue thing and the heel-spikes... so he's a killing machine. It's pretty cool, it's funny. He's got bones sticking out, so it becomes like an exo-skeleton which he uses as armour..."

SHH! weiss mehr über den kommenden "The Incredible Hulk" Teaser-Trailer...
Marvel Entertainment announced its fourth quarter and full year operating results this morning, and with it came the news that you'll be seeing the first trailer for The Incredible Hulk in early March. Our guess is that it will hit theaters with Warner Bros.' PG-13 rated 10,000 B.C. on March 7 (if that's true, make sure you call your theater to see if the trailer is playing with the showtime you're thinking of attending, as it will likely not be on every screen) and then with the R-rated Universal (the studio releasing "Hulk" in theaters) pic Doomsday on March 14.

CS! berichtet über die Hasbro-Präsentation in New York...
[...] Before Hasbro presented their line of toys for The Incredible Hulk, we were treated to a surprise sizzle reel that featured lots of new footage, mostly from behind-the-scenes on the set, including the Harlem Street scene with cars being thrown around. One key bit of information revealed in the accompanying sound bites was that the movie takes place five years after the first movie with Bruce Banner having been away all that time... and when he returns, he looks like Edward Norton! We saw lots of scenes of Norton running around with confirmation that the '70s TV show was a big influence, and Tim Roth was introduced as the primary villain Emil Blonsky, a military man whose army is after the Hulk. We only saw Roth in his black leather military gear-you can see a blurry picture of the toy on the right--although it was more than hinted that we'd see him turn into the Abomination. Even though we didn't see any actual shots of either the Hulk or the Abomination, we did see a scene of Roth in his motion capture outfit performing on the soundstage. Essentially, it was a lot of running and jumping and cars flying around with sound bites from those involved and sadly, no Hulk or Abomination, so we had to use our imagination based on the toys, which were mostly poses of the Hulk smashing things. There wasn't anything on display of the Abomination, so we may have to wait for that until the toys' release on May 1. [..]
Bei AICN gibt es einen Bericht über die Spielwarenmesse in Nürnberg...
[...] 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. What we
saw looked like the first official trailer. The scene 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 running... 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. [...]

TheSun.co.uk zitiert Edward Norton...
The 2003 movie starring ERIC BANA was panned by critics and Norton was quick to distance his new film from it.
"First off it’s utterly unrelated to that film," he said, in this month’s Total Film magazine.
"This is in no way a response to it or picking up from it.
"I think like Chris Nolan and those guys did with Batman, we just said: 'We’re going to start completely with our own version of this myth or saga.'
And the Fight Club star revealed that he turned down the part of Bruce Banner and his alter ego before being wooed by the chance to write the screenplay himself.
"When the phone rings and someone says, ‘Hey, would you be interested in the big green guy?" there’s that part of all of us that doesn’t want to look like an idiot," he admitted.
"There’s the wince factor or the defensive part of you that recoils at what the bad version of what that would be. And I did that, basically. I said ‘no’ to it a couple of times."
Now firmly on board Norton revealed that The Incredible Hulk is just the beginning.
"To me the whole thing was to envision it in multiple parts," he said.
"We left a lot out on purpose. It’s definitely intended as chapter one."

Bei AICN verdichten sich die Gerüchte zu einem "Iron Man"/"Incredible Hulk" Cross-Over...
[...] There are some fuzzy politics going on with the Iron Man and Hulk movies - they're shooting a scene TOGETHER! The trouble is, I can't tell if its an Iron Man scene with the Hulk in in or a Hulk scene with IRON MAN in it, more interestingly, it's possible that the SAME SCENE or some variation of it might be in BOTH movies lending to the comic book / single universe, many heroes idea seen in the past - uber cool.

SHH! sprach mit Tim Roth über "Incredible Hulk"...
[...] "I just literally wrapped last week, and it was such fun," he said, "I'm bloody tired by the way. From being in the action stuff, I don't know how the hell they do it, people like Bruce Willis. They must have great stunt doubles. I had three of them! My god, and I was so happy when they were working!"
He was a bit more cagey when asked how involved he has been with the CG in terms of creating Blonsky's "Abominable" counterpart and whether he's been doing motion capture type stuff for it. "You'll find out. (We're doing) all kinds."
We also asked whether he had to take on a Russian accent to play Blonsky. "No," Roth responded. "Do you know why? They wouldn't pay for a dialect coach," he said with a laugh. "So now it's London."
He also said that he did the movie for his kids, who he think will dig it. [...]
Bei WizardUniverse.com gibt es ein Interview mit dem Regisseur Louis Leterrier...
[...] "It’s a fresh start because I saw there is a real fan base for Ang Lee’s movie," said Leterrier of Lee’s ill-received "Hulk" in an exclusive interview with Wizard. "I didn’t want to offend [those fans] in any way, and also I like the movie. It was very interesting. [But] it was weaker ground to build a big franchise upon so we decided to scrap it and establish it from bases that are more comic book-based and TV show-based."
"Incredible Hulk" will still feature several elements from the Ang Lee film such as General "Thunderbolt" Ross (played by William Hurt) and his hunt for Banner. But the development of other antagonists takes place in the film, as well. Heading for those comic book roots, Leterrier pit Hulk against someone very familiar to comic book fans.
"Obviously, General Ross is the villain, so he had to be in it," added Leterrier. "But the Abomination, Emil Blonsky, was who Marvel wanted to put in this chapter - the first chapter of our new saga - because he’s the most famous. He’s an enemy that can actually threaten the Hulk. It’s very important for me that there is a danger. When Bruce Banner is Hulk, I didn’t feel in Ang Lee’s ‘Hulk’ that there was any threat. He was invincible. So with Abomination there’s actually a monster that can, you know, kill him when he’s in the Hulk form."
Played in human form by Tim Roth, Blonsky isn’t the only new character. Look for Doc Samson (played by Ty Burrell) and Samuel "the Leader" Sterns (played by Tim Blake Nelson) when the film powerbombs into theaters next summer.

The Los Angeles Times has clarified the Comic-Con announcement that Edward Norton rewrote the screenplay for The Incredible Hulk:
In the case of "Hulk," after another writer's treatment was declined in early 2006, Marvel hired [Zak] Penn, who wrote three drafts over a year. By spring 2007, Penn was about to go off to promote his movie "The Grand," but the studio and the director, Louis Leterrier ("The Transporter"), still felt that the screenplay needed work.
When Norton came in to meet about starring as Banner in April, the film had already been greenlighted and there were just three months before shooting was scheduled to begin, just after Independence Day. But Norton had well-established (if underground) writing experience and strong ideas about how to separate the film from any confusion over its connection to the 2003 Ang Lee version by casting it in a more distinct, starting-over vein like "Batman Begins" or "Casino Royale."
So Norton's initial deal included payment not just for his acting services but for his writing talents too, with his draft contractually stipulated to be turned around in less than a month. As it turned out, Norton delayed work on another screenplay job to do "Hulk," and he continues to tweak the script as principal photography hits its halfway point outside Toronto.
Meanwhile, Penn is writing a big-budget version of "The Avengers" and yet another potential "X-Men" spinoff.
Quint von AICN meldet...
[...] we get some William Hurt news. Not only is he doing another comic book property (his last was an Oscar nominated performance in the fantastic A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE), but he's playing General Thunderbolt Ross, chasing down the big green thug himself.
THE INCREDIBLE HULK is shaping up to be a rather fascinating property. The cast is out of this world, the whole idea of the semi-sequel/reboot coming so shortly after the first film... Such a bizarre project, but it sounds like it's all coming together nicely. [...]
The Incredible Hulk will be matched against the oversized adversary Abomination, and Tim Roth will play the villain's alter ego, Emil Blonsky.
Variety says Roth is joining Edward Norton and Liv Tyler in the Louis Leterrier-directed film, which is being financed by Marvel Studios and distributed by Universal Pictures on June 13, 2008.
Blonsky is a KGB agent who deliberately exposes himself to the gamma rays that caused Bruce Banner to morph into the Hulk. Blonsky has upped the dosage, making him larger and stronger than the Hulk, but unable to change back to human form. He blames Banner for his problem, and makes his best efforts to destroy the Hulk. [...]

Empire Online sprach mit Avi Arad...
You know this ‘The Hulk may be grey in the new Incredible Hulk movie’ business that’s been floating around the internet for the last couple of days? Well, as it turns out, he won’t be. Move along, nothing to see here!
How do we know this? Well, just this afternoon we spoke exclusively to Avi Arad, ace comic book movie producer and the guy whose casual mention of a ‘new colour’ at a round table in LA sparked a net-geek frenzy on a scale rarely seen, and he confirmed it. Simple.
"It was a joke!" laughs Arad, in town to talk up Spider-Man 3, which opens on May 4. "Here’s what it was. There were 30 people around a table, and they said ‘is there going to be a grey Hulk?’ And I was thinking about it and I said, ‘who knows?’ It was one of those moments. I had just got back from Japan and I was trying to talk about Spider-Man and this guy was pushing me on The Hulk so I thought I’ll be coy. I don’t know what colour it is, and all of a sudden it’s headline news."
But Arad did mention a new colour - so will the eponymous star of Louis Letterier’s movie, due out in 2008, still be green? Or orange? Or pink with yellow stripes?
"It’s a different shade of green," confirms Arad. "But the colour is not like the old Hulk. And no, there’s no grey Hulk."
Talk of a grey Hulk had led to fevered speculation that this version of Ol’ Green/Greyskin would have some intelligence, and even be able to speak, much like the grey Hulk in the comic books. However, not content with debunking one rumour, Avi swiftly shot down another.
"He’ll be instinctive, like a primal creature. That’s what’s interesting. There’s no smarts. My dog is the gentlest animal out there, but he hates the plumber. He won’t fight with anybody, hates the plumber!"
Of course, The Hulk will be taking on a bigger foe than The Plumber in The Incredible Hulk, namely The Abomination, but Arad is adamant that Marvel and Universal are heading in the right direction with the movie, particularly the casting. Last week’s news that Edward Norton - indie darling and star of resolutely uncommercial films, for the most part - had signed on to play Bruce Banner. Especially when it was further revealed that he had actually turned down the Ang Lee version, in 2003. So, why the change of heart for Norton?
"I think we have a much better story," reveals Arad. "I think he likes Louis Leterrier. It’s a very different movie, one of my personal goals was to make another Hulk movie where Hulk is heroic, lovable, the real Frankenstein story. That’s what we set out to do. To me, I was stuck - literally - if it wasn’t Ed Norton. I was sitting, thinking ‘he has to make it happen’."
Arad also mentioned that the casting of "an amazing" Betty - Banner’s love interest - should be confirmed within the next couple of days. [...]

[...] "The whole thing was a rumor," Purcell admitted. "Marvel never approached me. It was just a rumor."
But would he want to do it if they did approach him?
"Depending, you know?" he replied. "Really, I loved the first 'Hulk.' Obviously, if they can come up with that kind of concept, I would have loved to have done it, but they didn't and again, it was just all rumor." [...]
