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 »

[Opening titles showing flashbacks to the Pilot episode experiment and transformation]
In each of us there lives a kind of beast... made of rage. Years ago I used science to study this beast... to bring him out of me. I used gamma radiation to release him... but I used too much... far too much. Now the beast is out of my control... emerging whenever anger stikes. My name is David Banner... the world thinks I'm dead... I travel alone... I try to keep the beast caged within myself...

I want to start by saying unlike a lot of reviews for this movie i think this one is better than The Incredible Hulk Returns movie but it still has the odd looking Hulk make-up and not quite as bad music but still could have been better, especially when David is transforming into The Hulk. I loved the sound they used in the series.
Here was have another Marvel star in the guise of The Daredevil with a couple more Marvel characters thrown in for good measure, and once again this felt like another pilot to a TV series. The movies worked really well but could have been more of The Hulk in it and the Daredevil fight scenes could have been more convincing. That aside it was still good to see The Hulk back and if they decide to bring more Marvel friends then more the merrier i say.
I love how they are not playing it safe with these Hulk movies, there was still nothing in TV like this and will always be my favorite TV drama franchise.
Keep them coming i remember thinking when i 1st saw this many years ago and they did.
This movie was followed by The Death of The Incredible Hulk.
