Incredible Hulk Almost Derails the McU: Journey to Infinity War Part 2

Marvel's early days are somewhat strange. It's clear that the people behind-the-scenes knew that these movies could all be connected someday. And they knew that there was something bigger they were building toward. While it seems like they mostly figured that out by Iron Man 2, it's really The Incredible Hulk that winds up being the forgotten child and the biggest casualty of the early stages of this grand experiment. That said, for all of the vocalization from the fanbase wanting a Hulk solo movie, we have one in the McU already. It just has Edward Norton instead of Mark Ruffalo in it.

As far as revisiting all of these McU movies leading up to Avengers: Infinity War, I was incredibly curious about taking another look at The Incredible Hulk. I remember seeing this movie when it first came out and, though I haven't watched it in quite some time,

10 American History X Facts You Never Knew

10 American History X Facts You Never Knew
American History X, the moody drama about a pair of troubled brothers caught up in the Neo-Nazi skinhead movement, took an honest look at the underbelly of white supremacist counterculture in America, in many ways, presaging the state of the country 20 years after its release. Released in 1998, a year before Fight Club, American History X earned Edward Norton an Oscar nomination for Best Actor. Here we look at 10 things you never knew about American History X.

American History X was partially inspired by a true story.

American History X marked the debut of screenwriter David McKenna, who went on to write another movie partly based on a true story, Blow, starring Johnny Depp. Real life former white supremacist skinhead Frank Meeink was arrested at age 17 and spent three years in prison, where he befriended several inmates of various ethnicities and grew to reject his former beliefs. He is now a writer and lecturer.

Could Avengers: Infinity War Signal The Return Of Liv Tyler As Betty Ross?

Not for the first time, Liv Tyler has been tipped for a role in Avengers: Infinity War.

As any Marvel fan will tell you, the actress originally played the part of Betty Ross, gamma scientist and Bruce Banner’s ex-girlfriend, in The Incredible Hulk, which became the second instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Iron Man.

That means Louis Leterrier’s oft-forgotten spinoff is still considered canon among Marvel creators, so the return of Betty Ross isn’t exactly off the table. And that’s exactly what The Scottish Daily (via ComicBook.com) predicts in its breakdown of Infinity War‘s colossal production. Mind you, just because Liv Tyler’s name is mentioned doesn’t necessarily mean that her McU character is a shoo-in for the forthcoming blockbuster, so until we hear something official from Marvel, take this one with a pinch of salt.

Yes, Infinity War is said

Five Of The Best: Christian Bale Movie Performances

In cinemas this weekend is the American western Hostiles, the latest film from Scott Cooper (Out of the Furnace, Black Mass, Crazy Heart). Christian Bale leads the cast of a battle-worn Army captain Joseph J. Blocker, who reluctantly agrees to escort a Cheyenne chief (Wes Studi) and his family through dangerous territory. We caught the film at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival and despite having a few minor issues with the film, praised it for its key performances, notably from Bale and co-star Rosamund Pike. Here, in a special feature, we take a look at Christian Bale’s five best film performances over his multi-decade career.

Epic New Poster Puts Mark Ruffalo In The Incredible Hulk Movie

Back in 2003, before the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a thing, award winning director Ang Lee delivered to us Hulk, starring Eric Bana as Bruce Banner. The film presented a story that focused on Banner’s relationship with Betty Ross (played by Jennifer Connelly), who is indeed a significant love interest for the scientist in the source material. She’s also the daughter of General Ross – Banner’s enemy.

Then, came the McU, and director Louis Leterrier delivered a variation on the relationship theme again. This time, Edward Norton played the scientist, while Liv Tyler filled the role of Betty in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. Like in the last movie, her father was still chasing the titular hero but this time, he did so using Abomination, a Hulk-like character from the comics and one of his arch-enemies.

After that film, however, Mark Ruffalo finally stepped in, replacing Norton and going on

Five Hilarious Movie Scenes Starring Ed Norton

Hilarity is a very subjective thing at times and that’s a good thing since Edward Norton is not exactly a comedian. He’s been in some scenes you could say have a certain level of comedy to them but in all likelihood when people think funny they’re thinking something that makes them laugh uproariously and without feeling any kind of shame. That’s not really what Norton is known for. His moments of funny are more like something buried deep beneath the drama that you have to actively search for, moments of irony that are there to be laughed at if you

Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs Poster Invites You Into the Pack

Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs Poster Invites You Into the Pack
The absolutely dog-centric poster for Wes Anderson's upcoming stop-motion movie Isle of Dogs has landed. Wes Anderson has a style that is very much his own and he's not afraid to take some very bizarre, out-of-the-ordinary risks in his movies. Such is the case with his latest directorial effort, which features a bunch of A-list actors voicing dogs in a rather bizarre but hopefully delightful animated movie. Now, we have a new poster for Isle of Dogs, which really lives up to the promise of its name, as it is loaded down with lovable dogs.

Even if Wes Anderson's name wasn't featured on this poster, it would almost be unmistakably something with his signature style and quirk. The Isle of Dogs poser features the text for the movie's title, both in Japanese and English, right down the center, with the human boy Atari right below it. Nearly every other
