Sometimes it seems like the internet is a very negative place. There's a new Incredible Hulk trailer out and it's being greeted by a lot of fan cynicism. So I thought I'd post my Seven Reasons Why The Incredible Hulk Won't Suck… probably.
- Edward Norton
Now I'm not claiming that Norton's record is perfect (he appeared in Death to Smoochy after all), but he's an excellent actor with an impressive body of work to his name. And if that's not enough for you, he's channeling Bill Bixby in some scenes.
- Liv Tyler
Do I really have to explain this one?
- Tim Roth
How can casting Tim Roth as Edward Norton's nemesis be bad?
- William Hurt
Seriously the casting for this film is a amazing. How often do you get this many great actors appearing together in a movie based off a comic book character?
- Hulk Smash!
If the trailers are to believed (and they aren't always), then Hulk does plenty of smashing in this movie. And lets face it that is what Hulk is all about.
- The TV Series
It's pretty obvious from the trailers that they are channeling elements from the old TV show. Now as campy as that show was, it got certain things spot on and its those elements this movie seems to be taking.
- The Abomination
Not only is the abomination one of Hulk's coolest adversaries, but he's the perfect one to showcase Hulk Smash!

Now having said all that I do have some concerns, but they mainly center on the special effects. The Hulk still doesn't look right to me. And it's always possible I'm wrong, in which case this page will stand as evidence of my poor judgement.
But you know what? I'd rather be optimistic and wrong than yet another cynical sheep that can't even wait until something is released before tearing it down to show how clever I am.eoghann.com.
