This a four minute featurette on the creation of The Hulk movie, with commentary by Stan Lee, James Schamus and Eric Bana, the modern day Hulk.
The character of “The Hulk” first appeared in a series of six Marvel Comics in 1962 as the creation of writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby. Two years later, the creature was pitted opposite Giant-Man and eventually earned his own comic as The Incredible Hulk.
The immense popularity of the creature also spawned a successful CBS television series (1977-1982), which starred Bill Bixby as scientist Banner and bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk.
Following cancellation of the series, fans’ enduring affection for the tale of hunted scientist and his angry alter ego urged network executives at NBC to bring back the Hulk to the television screen and ultimately, three more telefilms were created and aired in the late ‘80s.
The featurette takes viewers on the journey from comic book to major motion picture, with in depth analysis of the character of the Hulk and his timeless relevance to humanity.
Acclaimed filmmaker Ang Lee's concept for his film adaptation of the classic Marvel Comics series, The Hulk, combines all the elements of a blockbuster visual effects-intensive superhero movie with the brooding romance and tragedy of Universal's classic horror films.
