The Incredible Hulk

Tuesday night, I was settled in to watch the big election and to see how America voted. About 30 minutes into it, my wife asks me if I want to watch the new Incredible Hulk movie. I was like, "What?! It's election night!" She said she was bored with it, so I reluctantly put on the movie, and monitored the election from my computer on nbc.com.
I have to say that I really enjoyed this flick. Way, way better than the last one that came out. Ed Norton is one of my favorite actors, so I enjoyed him in the role. I liked that they gave some love to Lou Ferrigno, the original Hulk. My question is, what was the deal with Ironman showing up at the end? I don't if I was half asleep and missed something, but I didn't understand the tie-in there. I guess it's setting up for a sequel.

If you've got any insight into this one, let me know.

They're setting up an "Avengers" movie. Same reason Samuel L. Jackson made his cameo at the end of Iron Man...

Scuttlebut in the nerd community (of which I'm a proud member) is that they are setting things up for a possible Avengers live action movie. The rumors of such a thing have been around for a few years, but this was the first outward sign of it being possible.

They're working on Thor, and maybe even a Captain America movies that's not stupid.

Essentially, the storyline might be Avengers are formed to take down the Hulk when no one else can.

both your geeky friends are right and just a little fact. to pay tribute to Lou they had him record the voice part of HULK SMASH. an epic line if i do say so myself, and i do. also the "Avengers" is the reason behind the wolverine movie.

Haven't seen the new Hulk movie yet, but I certainly intend to at some point. Glad to hear it's good. Hope your other friends are correct and there will be some good Thor and Captain America movies, that will be a lot of fun.

As for the election returns, I watched them in the other room so Amy could watch whatever she wanted in the living room. Of course, every time I came out it seems she was stopping what she was watching to check the election returns... so who knows...

There's a Wolverine moving coming? Wolverine wasn't in all the Avengers comics so interesting?

Sarah and I watched it last night. It was pretty good! So far, Marvel's doing a good job with these movies.
