"Yeah... because that's not who the character is."  Dame Judi Densch will just never be the Incredible Hulk, no matter how fabulous an actor she is.

 Can't you just picture her in a motion capture suit.

I'm really enjoying the tone set by the trailers and clips so far (though I've been avoiding watching everything out there).

My son is totally on board with this one, and so am I.  It remains to be seen, though, if the Marvel Studios brand will give the Spidey name a much-needed shot in the arm, or if the latest entry will somehow end-up making less than THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2.  Nothing surprises me after this lackluster summer movies season so far!

====================

Unless Dame Densch turns out to be better at performing as the Hulk than competing actors, why use special effects to make her fit the role.

Because she's not 10 foot tall, green and muscle bound.

Anthony - absolutely correct. Of course, we have so few good 10' green actors anymore... :)

Then again, Lou Ferrigno did seem adequate in carrying off the role with a minimum of special effects. And we're just watching "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" and Mr. Hyde is prosthetics, no effects.

But in that latter production, casting (for example) John Wayne or James Garner as Allen Quatermain would have been awkward, even if both of them were great strong heroes and adequate actors.

For the time it was well done.

I didn't care too much for the effect.

I'm a big fan of practical effects. In most cases i would rather go that way instead of cgi. However there are some instances where I think it's better to go with cgi. The Hulk and Thing are two characters that I'd prefer digital.

So the news is that Jennifer Connely will also be in this film. Since Marissa Tomei is Aunt May, Connely will surely play another senior citizen like Madame Web.

Nope.  Connelly is the voice of Peter's costume A.I.
She's his 'Jarvis'

A cool tidbit of info:

Remember the little kid in the Iron Man mask in IM2 (who confronted one of Hammer's drones at the Stark Expo?)


Guess who that kid was?



It has been a fan theory for awhile now.  But Tom Holland and Kevin Fiege have confirmed it.

Pretty cool.

I see letters and words here but none of it makes any sense.
