Comic-Con 2006: New "Hulk" Sequel to Be an "Abomination"

by | July 24, 2006 | Comments

OK, we already knew that Abomination would be the new "Hulk" villain, and we just recently got word that "Transporter 2" director Louis Leterrier would be helming Marvel’s "The Incredible Hulk," so what new information did the Comic Con panel have to offer? The promise of "no more poodles."

From Chris Carle’s report at IGN FilmForce: "Members of the panel seemed dedicated to distancing themselves from "Hulk." Louis Leterrier said, "The idea… is to make the Hulk action adventure movie everyone wanted to see."

In addition to being an action/adventure movie, Leterrier stated, "It’s Marvel’s horror movie… It’s Frankenstein, it’s Jekyll and Hyde and a little Edward Scissorhands." The script is going to hearken back to the television show, focusing on Banner’s journey and his difficulty dealing with the monster. "The good thing abour number twos is that you don’t waste your time on the origin," said Leterrier.

Regarding the villain: "I think we needed an anti-Hulk this time," said Leterrier. "Abomination is mega-bad Hulk."
