Hulk Monster Truck (2008)

What a score I made the other day at Toys R Us.  I found this in an entire row of Spiderman Monster Trucks.  Just one Hulk truck left.  Either Hulk is that popular – or they only made 1 Hulk truck in an entire shipment of monster trucks.  I choose to believe the first statement.  The image on the top of the truck is from the cover to The Incredible Hulk #206.

Ed Norton isn’t talking… (UPDATE)

So, according to G4, Marvel Studios won in the battle of the final cut of the film against Ed Norton (Marvel wanted a trimmer, faster paced film – Norton wanted the longer, more detailed story).  Now Ed Norton won’t be found on the publicity tour for the new movie.  Norton’s camp is insisting that it’s not because of his anger of losing the battle but because “The film speaks for itself.” 

I’m sorry, speaks for itself?  How can anyone NOT want to talk about the Hulk film?  Now, I think Norton is a very talented actor – and I don’t know the real story (maybe the feud was blown out of proportion, the way Norton said it was) but if we heard the true story, then Norton needs to trust the people he works with in making the right decisions for the film the way they trusted him to be the best person for the role of Bruce Banner.  Now go see Letterman ya frikkin’ baby!

UPDATE: Read Norton’s press release here.  I like the part where he says how he wrote the script.  He wrote it.  No mention of anyone writing any drafts before him – this is his brain child! – He wrote, produced, edited, he’s a one man movie making machine he is!  I don’t think this press release does much for his ego-maniac depiction.
