New "Hulk" Movie a Reboot, Not a Sequel (Think "Batman Begins")
Reading the Wikipedia page on the upcoming film The Incredible Hulk gave me some ponderables. It seems that the new film is a reboot in the vein of Batman Begins, not a sequel to the succinctly-titled Hulk. Normally these sort of things rock (Batman Begins being the most famous example), but this situation is unique - I mean, Hulk came out only five years ago. Five years. Seems awfully short, dontcha think?
Not me. Word of mouth has it that the original sucked, and I'm all for opening up a can of "Ministry of Truth" on Hulk and erasing it from existence. In fact, I'd like to see some other movies from 2003 redone. It may not be too late to save the following movies:
(Deep breath) Matrix Reloaded, House of the Dead and Cat in the Hat (have Pixar CGI it).
Actually, that didn't take very much breath at all. Here's hoping that the new Hulk movie is good enough to compensate for the fact that I don't find the character interesting.
