Paul Soles, who portrays "Stanley", the owner of the pizza shop, provided the voice for Spider-Man in the Hulk (1966) animated series. The character's name may also be another tribute to Hulk co-creator Stan Lee. See more »
When Lt. General Ross (according to the rank on his collar) removes the vial from the dry ice storage, its content is not frozen solid. Several chemical compounds remain liquid well below the temperature of dry ice (-78 C); the record-holder N,N-diethylmethylamine doesn't freeze (if barely) even when stored in liquid nitrogen (-195 C).

Stan, I give you my word. Whatever you've heard about me, it's not true.
Oh, I know it. I always knew it. I mean, you know how I felt about you two.
Have you talked to her?
No. She doesn't know that I'm here.
She's with somebody?
Yeah, He's a head-shrink. They say he's one of the best. But a really nice guy.
Oh... Good. That's good.
Bruce. What can I do to help you?

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 closing scene. See more »

Forget there even was a 2003 rendition of the Hulk.
While the storyline is predictable, I suspect that this flick (along with Iron Man) ushers in a new era of sorts for Marvel-based movies. While not as slick & witty as Iron Man, let's face it, the Hulk is not nearly as complex a character.
I thought for a moment that perhaps this was the kind of flick I might dial up another friend to watch but I decided to take my wife which turned out to be a bonus for the both of us... I lucked out that I just so happened to take her to a movie that featured Portuguese (EN sub-titles on & off for about 10 minutes or so) but as it turns out she claimed to like it more than Iron Man (which I admit, I might have been a bit more partial to).
Basic plot, good acting (on Norton's part), great special effects, and while I may have been more partial to Iron Man, the battles featured here cannot be compared.
Keep 'em coming Marvel - great job!!
