Trivia

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 »

The Hulk Stays Strong...
3 September 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Second TV movie after the cancellation of the Incredible Hulk series holds well. In this film Bruce Banner heads to New York still trying to find a cure for his transformation spells into the Hulk. In the process he is arrested for the attempted rape of a young woman in a subway (in fact he actually helped her). He is given Matt Murdock as his lawyer and with the help of his alter-ego Daredevil he sets out to prove his innocence and rescue the woman who has been kidnapped. As part of a plan to release a Daredevil TV show Universal thought it would be good to see if audiences will enjoy Daredevil. Oh well the show never went further than this, but it still is a pretty good original appearance for Daredevil. Followed by The Death of the Incredible Hulk. 3 1/2 OUT OF 5 STARS.
