The Incredible Hulk is a superhero based on the Marvel Comics character the Hulk. The 2008 Movie is directed by Louis Leterrier and stars Edward Norton as Dr. Bruce Banner/the Hulk. Banner became the Hulk as an unwitting pawn in a military scheme to create supersoldiers. On the run, he attempts to cure himself of the Hulk before he is captured by General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross (William Hurt), but his worst fears are realized when power-hungry soldier Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth) becomes the Abomination. Liv Tyler also stars as Betty Ross, Banner's girlfriend and General Ross's daughter.
