John Rhys-Davies accepted the role of Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. The Kingpin, without knowing that the character is bald and clean-shaven in the comics. When he learned this, he offered to shave his head, as the producers were unable to get him a bald skullcap. However, they declined, and Rhys-Davies appeared with a different look. Additionally, Fisk is never referred to as "The Kingpin" in the film. See more »
When the Hulk is running away from the Police after the Subway incident, the ends of the prosthetic forehead can be seen flapping out under the sides of the wig and also part of Lou Ferrigno's dark hair. See more »
The UK video version was cut by 15 secs by the BBFC to edit shots of a butterfly knife and to remove an ear-clap during a fight scene. The cuts were restored for the 2007 12-rated Starz DVD release. See more »
This is essentially a daredevil movie, but I really liked it. It's low budget , but gets the spirit of the comics. I always liked the guy who played Banner (sorry can't remember his name)in the TV series, he was easy to sympathize with. Haven't been able to bring myself to watch the recent daredevil or hulk films. Stan Lee criticized the movie because of daredevils costume and a few other things, but frankly for the budget (and all the early marvel movies were low budget with an oddly 1970's feel),the director and cast have managed very well. As for Fisk/Kingpin being bald, frankly no one could actually look like the giant bald guy portrayed in the comics, also don't remember anyone commenting about gene hackman playing Lex Luther in the superman movies (he is revealed to be wearing a toupee at the end of one movie)
