Incredible Hulk Plot Synopsis

Published 8 years ago by

Here’s the summary for the Hulk reboot movie, The Incredible Hulk:

Scientist Bruce Banner is living in shadows, scouring the planet for an antidote. But the warmongers who dream of abusing his powers won’t leave him alone, nor will his need to be with the only woman he has ever loved, Betty Ross.

When he returns to civilization, Banner finds himself ruthlessly pursued by The Abomination – a nightmarish beast of pure adrenaline and aggression whose powers match The Hulk’s own. A fight of comic-book proportions ensues as Banner must call upon the hero within to rescue New York City from total destruction. And on June 13, 2008, one scientist must make an agonizing final choice — accept a peaceful life as Bruce Banner or the creature he could permanently become: The Incredible Hulk.

And there you have it. Sounds like we may not have to suffer through another origin story and they’ll get right to it with the next movie. Here’s hoping they do it right.

  1. That sounds pretty good,as long as it can be
    viewed apart from that incredible tradegy Hulk
    film. Still….I really wouldn’t mind if they
    went over the origin briefly and it was as it was
    in the comics.

  2. I’m sure they’ll touch on the origin at least briefly.


  3. Maybe its just me, but Hulk is kinda… blah. And Hulk vs. the Abomination. Come on. Don’t get me wrong. Stan’s idea of the Hulk as a superhero is awesome. But Hulk vs. The Abomination sounds like “Fat Man” vs “Little Boy”.
    Look it up if you don’t get the refernece.

    I hope they make it better than the first. But with this story line I can’t see them adding much more than a twisted love/loss story with Emil and his wife, then him trying to kill off Ms. Ross.

    Most comic-based movies I’d say I can’t wait for, but this one I think I can. After the last, I think alot of people have a bad green taste in their mouths.

  4. Well, it beats the first movie’s Godzilla-like confrontation of monster vs army. :-)

    I’m not a big Hulk fan, either but the character does lend itself to a big angst-filled story, which is not always the best for a superhero flick.


  5. Correction — a bad 9 feet tall green taste in their mouths. =)

  6. Correction–an over 20 feet tall green taste in their mouths. He was entirely too big in that film.

  7. Alcadyzaar,
    who do you think would be a better villain in the
    new Hulk movie? The Leader and his scrotum head?
    The Gargoyle and his also oversized head? The Absorbing Man,made infamous by Nick Nolte?Please,tell
    me,who do you think would be a better villain for
    a new Hulk film? This movie sounds more grounded
    in the comics than the 2003 release,and it has a
    good cast,I don’t see what your problem is with it.

  8. A good cast makes a good movie not.

    I see your point, KEL. There are no villains that could really be classified as “decent”. In the Hulk story line, what?, 50% or MORE of all his enemies are gamma-radiation mutants.

    Hulks powers are emotionally based. So lets do a little Joss Whedon cross-over and get someone with a canister of PAX-13, and he’ll be hosed. Bruce Banner is as much as a scientific hero as the Hulk is…., well, green.

    I’d like to think there is more to a hero than smash, crush, burn, maim, rape, pillage, kill first and ask questions later. Fighting a situation, to me, is often more satisfying than just seeing an all out grudge match filled with wanton destruction and mayhem.
