Angry monsters arguably don’t often elicit sympathy from movie audiences, but The Incredible Hulk is definitely among the potential exceptions. The backstory of this oft-misunderstood superhero is, after all, one of despair. The Hulk’s origins center on a biological lab experiment gone wrong – leading to the character’s transformation from human to monster. It’s certainly a history fit to be interpreted on the big screen. And yet statements from some of those closest to the character in his most recent cinematic incarnation suggest that we probably won’t see another Hulk standalone film any time soon. But why exactly? Well, it seems that there are several key reasons.
“You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry!” Those were the famous words coined by the TV creators of one of the most popular superheroes in history: The Incredible Hulk. However, lately you might be forgiven for thinking that Hollywood doesn’t want you to see the big green monster in any capacity in which he really has his own spotlight and voice.
The Incredible Hulk made his first colorful appearance in the early ’60s, with his debut coming courtesy of a comic book of the same name. The Incredible Hulk was first distributed in 1962. And the furious brainchild of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby soon shot into the stratosphere.
