Hulk

I don’t know the situation over at Marvel Comics, but I like to imagine that someone over there figured out, maybe sometime in the mid- ’90’s, that not already having movies made featuring their characters could be seen as an asset. I like to further imagine that whoever that was got a bonus, maybe even a promotion.

If only they could get their shit together, and make a proper Hulk movie.

(A proper Hulk movie ought to be a monster movie with misunderstandings about place in the world, a healthy dose of tragedy, and people’s reactions to the monster — most notably Banner’s. Smashing things, and destruction are only ancillary. The tragedy comes from not fitting in.)
