Sequel is now apparently, a remake!


Wanted: Man with the tendency to turn green when cheesed off (not just unleash his anger on an unsuspecting web audience), owner of a pair of short purple shorts, and with the smarts of Doogie Howser on his best day.

Yep, sounds like Marvel is looking for a new big-screen “Hulk”.

Avi Arad tells IF Magazine hat the new “Hulk” movie, “The Incredible Hulk”, will not be so much a sequel to the first film (which starred Eric Bana in the dual roles of Bruce Banner/Hulk) as it’ll be a remake.

“It’s a “do-over”. I loved the HULK movie, it was just a different approach, and it wasn’t exactly the comic. We want to be much closer to the comic. It’s what we would rather do”.

I think that essentially rules out Eric Bana returning in the main role. If it’s a total ‘redo’ then they’ll be essentially ditching everyone and anyone connected to the first film. (David Duchovny was mentioned, at one time, as a possible replacement for Eric Bana). Fits in with what Bana’s been telling me, too. Eric hasn’t heard a thing from anyone at the studio, regarding the movie, and since they’ve got a writer, and, are apparently about to announce a director, you’d think they would have told Bana he was required back, too, by now – if they planned on using him. I think it’s safe to say, Bana’s “Hulk Smash” days are over.

The new movie, which is said to be truer to the character’s comic book roots, will pit the Hulk against the equally large, Abominable.
