Hulk hates creepy way hospitals smell.

If you were one of the four people who liked Ang Lee’s THE INCREDIBLE HULK movie enough to root for a reboot, who would you cast as angry nerd Bruce Banner? Someone bulky, right? Some guy who seems like maybe he has a temper?

Not Edward Norton, who seems like maybe he’ll crush you with a withering bon mot. In interbellum Paris.

And then you probably also wouldn’t go “Hey, Edward Norton, would you like to write the screenplay? Since you’re so experienced in this area? And maybe to help you out, we’ll get Zak Penn!”

Here’s a good line from Zak Penn’s IMDB bio:

Earliest known memory is of the Watergate break-in.

He wrote X-Men: The Last Stand and Elektra. Maybe he and Edward Norton got into huge fights over the HULK script.

“Needs more explosions!”

“Needs more philosophy!”

“Explosions!”

“Philosophy!”

“Explosions!”

“HULK SMASH.”

I believe. The veiny neck is what’s doing it for me.
