So....Leader totally happened in the MCU
I guess we're just supposed to forget about it right? And people defend this
They defend the movie itself, they don't defend the failure to better incorporate it into the MCU. If it wasn't for the Tony Stark cameo at the end and General Ross appearing in Civil War, it might as well not be.
Im glad Ross is in it simply so it won't be easily forgotten and they try to better connect the movie because it feels like such an outcast since everyone kinda acts like everything started with Iron Man only.
Honestly I'm surprised that
1. Hulk vs Abomination is seen in Newspaper articles in stuff like Daredevil and they never replaced that Hulk design with now long established Ruffalo look
2. Ross is even in Civil War
Marvel seems to want to avoid Incredible Hulk in all other forms. I mean shit, the handful of times they even referred to that movie, Ruffalo refers to the deleted scene where he tried to kill himself.
And frankly Incredible Hulk sucked. Personally, I think its the worst movie in the MCU. Yes, worse than the Thors, Iron Man 2 and AoU.
They would make a Hulk movie but Universal owns distribution rights on any solo Hulk films, and Disney isn't going to give up that cash when they can make their own marvel movies and keep all the money.
This is what Ruffalo said on the subject on Dec 22nd.
>“I think they’ve been working on it. Marvel and Universal famously don’t get along very well, and so that’s working against us, definitely. But I know for a fact that everyone is holding out hope that one day we can do it. But the nature of the relationship right now, it’s a little prohibitive. And I hope that changes; that changes with regimes, it changes over the course of time. But right now, it doesn’t look particularly promising.”

"Last time I was in New York, I broke Harlem"
I know shitposters like to argue about the shows not being canon, but Marvel Studios literally does not treat them as such, even contradicting them on a few occasions.

Finally. Someone who admits it.
Everyone I've run into, is willing to say this movie is okay.
More than half the movie, is the military not understanding why their next, larger gun isn't working on the Hulk.
Why does enchanced Tim Roth bring out a hand gun and fire it, after the military have been peppering Banner with MACHINE GUNS FOR LIKE 10 MINUTES.
I HATE that movie. It's so fucking boring.
TIH ends with the 2nd or 3rd time being around Hulk has nearly killed Betty. While Hulk was only directly responsible the first time (set up to the movie/intro montage), he decides to fuck off and let her have the life he came back and interrupted in the movie.
She also decides to let him go, now knowing what really happened to him. After the Hulk leaves the action scene at the end, we get a shot of Betty being sad on a pier. She takes out a digital camera and looks at a picture of Banner she took earlier, as the battery dies and the screen goes black she knows she has to move on. Next is a shot of Banner putting the necklace she pawned to get money while on the run with him into an envelop addressed to her, tying up their last lose end.
Ah it's been a long time since I saw Incredible Hulk so I forgot about the finality of it. Pretty damn sad. I hated Widow x Hulk, but I really hope that Bruce isn't as lonely as he used to be. The Avengers make good friends, but you gotta have someone there to be with at night...
