Good to hear it turned out so well from a fellow fan.
Also, I hate you.
Bear no ill will my forum brother, it seems that I fucked up. After the movie ends there´s a part composed of personalized credits.After those special credits, there´s a scene detailing the Avengers next enemy. After seeing that I tought to myself "So they moved it from the end?Cool." And then left.
Now I hear reports that there´s one at the end of the regular credits. Been looking around, and only one site substantiates this idea, but until Avatar and Feli see the movie, I´ll think I fucked up.
they gave Hulk more personality through his actions, but still didn´t allow him to vocalize as much as I wanted
I'll asume this means there was no "Hulk Smash!"
To which I say: YES !!!
Unlike what some say, the Hulk only talked once, but it was a classic just like the smash bit. That being said, Banner was featured prominently,as much as the others. The Hulk only appears in two spearate ocasions in the movie, but when he shows up, it´s awesomeness overload time.
My problem with Marvel´s interpetation of the Hulk is that they seem to not want us to create empathy towards the Hulk. In TIH he was a mute wrecking ball. In this one he has more personality, but that just flows from his actions(2 lol moments will ensue in New York involving the Hulk, that never showed up in the trailers). They need to give the Hulk some redemption when he´s trashing "inocent" places and people. The cild-like persona of Savage Hulk would be a good idea, since they haven´t decided to bring Doctor Hulk aboard, so that the Dr. Jekill and Hyde methaphore can still be used, it would be really helpfull to do so in a new Hulk movie.
And here´s hoping that Marvel gives Rufallo a stand-alone movie. Really like the guy as Banner, and cool mo-cap. They even changed paradigms with Rufallo´s Hulk when it comes to transformations and the control Banner has upon them.Hey, if necessary get Stark in it, show the birth of Hulk-Buster gear, to atract those who wouldn´t normally go watch a Hulk movie. They established that Banner and Stark were on the same wave length.
And to think that this movie is just a tune up for the real battle...
