There are references in the film to Marvel Comics' next film, Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). Firstly, there is a portrait of Steve Rogers, the original Captain America, seen in the General Ross's office. Next, a label can be seen on the storage tank reading: "Dr. Reinstein." Reinstein was the doctor who developed the Super-Soldier serum that transmogrifies Rogers into the Captain. Louis Leterrier mentions he shot a scene where Banner encounters Captain in the Arctic, but it was cut out of the final cut of the film. It is on the special features options of some DVD editions, however. See more »
Emil Blonsky is supposedly a British officer "seconded" (detached) to the U.S. Army. Foreign officers on detached duty to the American armed forces do not wear American uniforms as Blonsky does in one scene. Only duly enlisted or commissioned members of the U.S. armed forces who have taken an oath of allegiance to the U.S. are allowed to wear the U.S. uniform. See more »

SPOILER: A scene appears before the closing credits: as General Ross sits in a bar, he is visited by Tony Stark, who banters a little and finally informs Ross "they're putting a team together." This leads into The Avengers (2012) (a superhero team of which Iron Man and the Hulk are founding members). 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.
