The film joined Toronto's Green-Screen initiative, to help cut carbon emissions and waste created during filming. Hybrid and fuel-efficient vehicles were used, with low-sulphur diesel as their energy source. For constructing the sets, the production department used a sustainably-harvested locally-sourced yellow pine, instead of the commonly-used lauan, and afterwards the wood was either recycled or given to environmental organizations. Paints with no/low volatile organic compounds were used, and paint cans were handed to waste management. A contractor was on set to remove bins. Environmentally-friendly items used on the set included cloth bags, biodegradable food containers, china and silverware food utensils, recycled paper, biodegradable soap and cleaners, rechargeable batteries and stainless steel mugs (one for each production member). Producer Gale Anne Hurd hopes the film will be a symbol of the drive to encourage less pollution from film productions. See more »
At the scene Banner comes to Mexico, the locality informed as being Chiapas, is in fact the Rio de Janeiro city (where many scenes were shot). At 30min 44second, an orange garbage can with the logo "Prefeitura do Rio" (Rio's City Hall) is seen backwards the seat where are two women. These garbage cans are common in Rio De Janeiro city. Moreover, about one minute later, Banner is shown sleeping next to a green large door in which can be seen Portuguese words (graffiti) like "paulista" (people born in São Paulo) and "Ja e?" (a slang used in Rio, that means "let's go?" or "are you in?". See more »
You didn't send me much to work with. So I had to concentrate it and make more.

SPOILER: In the opening credits, a blueprint of the sonic cannon at Culver University can be seen bearing the title "Stark Industries," indicating that it was Tony Stark (of Iron Man (2008)) who built the cannons for General Ross to use against the Hulk. Stark himself appears in the film's post-credits scene. See more »
Finally a bit of meat and potato's to go with my green eggs and ham...
I went into this completely blind. I wanted a pure 'experience' I saw ONE trailer prior to this screening and closed my eyes while humming. I had no idea if this was a second in the series or a re-make.
I was pleasantly surprised at the (obvious)complete makeover of our big green friend, and this was a (P.R.)change for him no doubt... this delightful romp will bring him right into the "good guy fold" so to speak, within the umbrella of the, "Avengers" Franchise that is now an inevitability.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film, Lots of time on character development, and the intricacies that make you really care for a plot and its characters. I thought the acting was very well done although I found Liv Tyler to be the 'Weak Link'. Not sure she 'sold' her part that well or maybe it was just typecasting for that "Armageddon" girl.
The CGI was top shelf. There were no seriously 'over done' moments of ,"awww Come on" uttered in the theater. In this packed theater there were many ovations for the cameo's and the ,"Bad guy gets it" scenes, and even for the thrilling last minute of the movie. So where was Samuel L. Jackson?
Please enjoy this more Comic like and more faithful version of THE HULK!
*** PARENTS*** Go see it! Please do not bring kids under 5 yrs old! it is very realistic and violent. Be a good parent.
