Facts About The Incredible Hulk History And The Movie

Would it be great if Arnold Schwarzenegger were to play the Hulk for the TV series back in the late 1970s? That would have happen but he was viewed as to short and instead Lou Ferrigno got the role.

Do you even know that Hulk was suppose to be gray instead of the green color? However, due to the limitation of the technology back in the 1960s, the color gray looks like green.

Hulk is suppose to be the strongest character in the Marvel Universe but did you know that he lost a fight to a snake? Yes a snake. He was rendered unconscious after being choke by a snake!!! Hulk can beat Iron Man or beat the living day light out of the Abomination in the recent movie but cannot beat a snake!??!?!

Hulk SMASH puny snake!!!

The Leader was shown in The Incredible Hulk Movie. To see The Leader, pay close attention to the part when the Abomination threw Samuel Stern (play by Tim Blake Nelson) onto the wall. Afterwards, the blood of Bruce Banner drop on his forehead. Thus, becoming The Leader!

The Leader - a role played by Tim Blake Nelson

In the comic book, Dr Samson was exposed to gamma radiation that gives him super strength and exquisite green hair (which the movie version is unlikely to sport). In the film, the Samson used by Betty Ross (Liv Tyler) to keep the sheets warm while her former love Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) is away trying to restrain his dark side as he is simultaneously hunted by General 'Thunderbolt' Ross (William Hurt) and the power hungry special ops soldier Emil Blonksy (Tim Roth) who later became the Abomination.

Dr. Leonard Samson, a psychiatrist and the love interest of Betty Ross, also played a big part in the movie as well.

Stay After The End Credit Of Iron Man For a Special Treat!

For those of you thinking about going to see the Iron Man movie then you are in for a treat, especially if you are an avid comic book fan.

It has been confirmed that the rumors of Samuel Jackson playing Nick Fury, a super-spy and the lead agent for S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Espionage Logistics Directorate) and you can see it after the end credit of Iron Man.

There could be more then just Samuel Jackson appearing. Rumor has it that the 2 times Oscar winner Hilary Swank who might be playing either Ms Marvel, Black Widow, or the Wisp might do a cameo appearance in the Iron Man movie as well.

What this means is that we might see an Avengers movie that could feature Captain America, Iron-Man, Ant-Man, Thor, Hulk and Wasp. After all, the Avengers are closely associated with Nick Fury and the S.H.I.E.L.D. or the cameo appearance at the end could mean an Iron-Man sequel where Nick Fury is involved.

The most likely scenario is that we see a Nick Fury movie starting Samuel Jackson and Hilary Swank as one of his agent.

Whatever the outcome of the appearance might be, one thing is for sure, Iron Man is going to be good. So make sure you take some time off of your schedule and go see the movie.

If you have seen the movie, then let us know what you think of it by commenting below.

A “cataclysmic force” will bring the two universes together and forces them to fight. To make this story work, comic book writer Jimmy Palmiotti (Pain Killer Jane, John Hex) and Justin Gray (writer of Jonah Hex, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, JLA Classified, Punisher Red X-Mas) was brought in create the story behind the merging of two different universe.

Movie Preview of Spider-Man's Clone: Scarlet Spider

Alright, there is no movie planned by Marvel Comics about Spider-Man's clone, the Scarlet Spider.

For those of you who was following the Spider-Man story about the return of his clone then you know what I am referring to. The return of Spider-Man's clone was published in the middle of the 1990s.

The story drag on and on and it was a mess. A lot of fans did not like the idea of a clone coming back to replace Spider-Man and wipe out years and years of continuity. It was to the point where the editors and writers of the Spider-Man books did not know how to end the storyline and bring back the real Spider-Man.

The real Peter Parker even had a baby girl with his wife, Marry Jane Watson. The baby girl, however, had a mysterious disappearance and was never mention again.

Now to the good part. I went online to look for some Spider-Man pictures to use for the Entrecard and came upon a very interesting video from YouTube. Check it out:

Inside The Incredible Hulk Movie Trailer

The Incredible Hulk movie is coming out on June 13, 2008.

Its the Hulk vs the Abomination in a no holds bar match!

Heres the official description of the movie:

Living in the shadows--cut off from a life he knew and the woman he loves, Betty Ross--Banner struggles to avoid the obsessive pursuit of his nemesis, General Thunderbolt Ross, and the military machinery that seeks to capture him and brutally exploit his power. As all three grapple with the secrets that led to The Hulk's creation, they are confronted with a monstrous new adversary known as The Abomination, whose destructive strength exceeds even The Hulk's own. To stop it, one scientist must make an agonizing final choice: accept a peaceful life as Bruce Banner or find heroism in the creature he holds inside--The Incredible Hulk.

The Secret Invasion of the Marvel Universe

Who do you trust?

Definitely not you if you seem . . . Skrully. What? Skrully?

For those of you who are an avid comic book reader, then you know what I am talking about. If you do not know what I am referring to then sit back, relax and I will explain to you about this earth shattering event known as “Secret Invasion” that is occurring right now.

All that you know about your favorite Marvel superheroes might be all false because the superhero that you have been following these past several years might be a Skrull. A Skrull is a shape – shifting alien race that has infiltrated every super-powered organization in Earth with one goal . . . Invasion!!

Even President Bush might one of those shapes – shifting alien Skrull because a Skrull can take the appearance of a person and be an exact duplicate. No one can tell the difference (hmmm . . . no wonder he acts . . . strange sometimes).

The only person who knows the truth is the series writer, Brian Michael Bendis. Even he might be a Skrull operating within Marvel Comics so that he could write these worlds shattering story to captivate you so you can spend your money and make Marvel Comics a lot of fat money.

This Skrully tale has been years in the making, developing the Skrulls’ revenge and placing replacements and traitors along the way. The ramifications of the outcome are staggering.

The artist to this eight-issue mini-series that promises to shake the status quo to its core is Leinil Yu. The first time I saw his art work was in an old issue of the New Avengers. At first I was not a big fan of his work because of the style of his drawing.

After picking up several issues of the New Avengers, I get to like his drawing. His style is very unique compare to other artist in the industry. His drawings give a lot of details to the characters and his ability to draw multiple characters in a single panel is quite impressive.

Is This Story Good?
The Secret Invasion story is one of those stories that keep you wanting more and more. The suspense level is high and seeing the heroes trying to figure out who is a Skrull is even better. My suggestion is pick up this book and give it a try and see what all the buzz is about. You will be glad you did.

If you missed the first issue (came out on April 2, 2008), have no fear because Marvel is coming up with a second print.

This is your chance to see who is a Skrull and find out why “This double-sized first issue has the jaws of fans and critics on the floor!”

Rated T+ …$3.99
FOC—4/10/08, On-Sale—4/30/08
