In 2003 the director Ang Lee premiered his version of the Green Goliath starring Eric Bana in the role of Bruce Banner and Nick Nolte as his father, the villain of the film. This version of the mighty hero would not be successful with the fandom. Subsequently, Marvel Studios acquired the rights to Hulk and got down to work to make his own film with this character who has a significant fan base.
The title of the film is The Incredible Hulk, second film of what is known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starring Edward Norton in the skin of the scientist who suffers an accident with Gamma radiation and can become the green beast that we all know. The film features the villain Emil Blonsky who transforms into Abomination and establishes The Leader as a future antagonist.
The actor who could have been the Hulk
