Fanboys and neophytes alike, I saw a lot of cool footage at Comic Con today, but the new scenes from The Incredible Hulk were freaking awesome. I'm all geeked out here. Tim Roth is going to crush it utterly as the villainous Emile Blonsky aka THE ABOMINATION. The Universal folks have kept his character under wraps, so no one really had any clue what he was all about. This may be a bold statement...but Heath Ledger's Joker may not be the baddest baddie of the summer.
The panel for Hulk was full of surprises. Lou Ferigno, who has a cameo in the film, comes out during the panel to thunderous applause. I LOVED the TV series when I was kid. Seeing Lou, who's still built like a brick ****house, was great. Director Louis Leterrier made Lou's day by asking him to record the voice of the Hulk. So the real Hulk will say 'Hulk Smash!' for the CGI one. Does it get any better? It actually does! After the end of the new trailer, it turns out the rumors online are true, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Iron Man himself, has a cameo in The Incredible Hulk. Kids, I have two words for you...THE AVENGERS!
Kevin Feige, top dog at Marvel Productions, hinted at characters crossing over in the panel. In our interview below, he pretty much states that's the next step. But we'll probably get a whole new cast a la the upcoming Justice League movie. My excitement and expectations for this film have skyrocketed. Check out our video interviews below with Director Louis Leterrier, Gale Anne Hurd, Kevin Feige, and the man that might own the summer's biggest badass status, Tim Roth.
