The Incredible Hulk (2008)

This is, without a doubt, the worst of the MCU films (I don’t know if many would argue against this, but I am curious to know if others have a different opinion). This film, has, however, grown on me since the first time I watched it. I don’t dislike Edward Norton as an actor and I don’t think he did a poor job in this film either. I do believe, however, that Norton was the wrong choice to play the Hulk. This point is made clear by how much better Mark Ruffalo was as the Hulk in future films (more to come on this later). Hulk in this film, I felt, looked a little goofy. I felt the CGI looked a little off, but, I suppose, was acceptable. I find it unfortunate that they are unable to add any more Hulk films to the MCU due to the fact that Universal owns the rights to a stand-alone Hulk film; I think, due to how poorly this film did compared to other Marvel films, Kevin Feige would have been able to take the next film in a new and exciting direction. I thought that Liv Tyler was an acceptable Betty Ross and I thought Ty Burrell was an interesting edition to the film. Tim Roth’s Emil Blonsky was an acceptable villain because he and Banner were complete foils of one another; I thought that this added a nice dynamic between the growth of the two characters.
