Universal has unleashed a buffet of new materials for the summer tentpole, which re-starts the story of the Hulk five years after Ang Lee tried his hand at the mean, green superhero with Eric Bana in the lead. In director Louis Leterrier‘s (The Transporter) new version, Ed Norton is Bruce Banner, the physicist whose exposure to gamma rays has burdened him with fantastic and terrible new powers.
MTV‘s got the exclusive new trailer, which you can watch here. We’ve added tons of new images that reveal the new Hulk in action, his nemesis the Abomination, Ed Norton as Bruce Banner, Liv Tyler as Betty Ross, and William Hurt as General “Thunderbolt” Ross (click on images below)!
The official synopsis:
The explosive, action-packed adventure in one of the all-time most popular superhero sagas unfolds with a cure in reach for the world’s most primal force of fury: THE INCREDIBLE HULK. We find scientist Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) living in shadows, scouring the planet for an antidote. But the warmongers who dream of abusing his powers won’t leave him alone, nor will his need to be with the only woman he has ever loved, Betty Ross (Liv Tyler). Upon returning to civilization, our brilliant doctor is ruthlessly pursued by The Abomination (Tim Roth)–a nightmarish beast of pure adrenaline and aggression whose powers match The Hulk’s own. A fight of comic-book proportions ensues as Banner must call upon the hero within to rescue New York City from total destruction. And on June 13, 2008…one scientist must make an agonizing final choice–accept a peaceful life as Bruce Banner or the creature he could permanently become: THE INCREDIBLE HULK.
The Incredible Hulk smashes into theaters June 13, 2008.
