Banner's first name was changed to David because producer Kenneth Johnson found alliterative names unrealistic. Banner is played by Bill Bixby, who has just such an alliterative name. The other superhero appearing in this film is Daredevil, whose real name is Matt Murdock--also alliterative. See more »

Seems like I critiqued this, already, but I can't remember where. Anyway, I'll try to keep it brief. Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno, as Dr. Banner and the Hulk, respectively? Incredible, as always. John Rhys-Davies as the Kingpin? Makes his performance 100 percent convincing, as usual. Rex Smith as Daredevil? Compared to the current Ben Affleck version, he looks more like that other blind Marvel hero, the Shroud (sans cape and Darkforce taffy). But, the martial arts/gymnastics are stupendous! I'd say: three stars out of four. *All four naturally belong to Affleck's movie.*
