Theories for why abomination's classic look wasn't put in movie.

I think because in the Spider-Man continuum Since They're going to (most likely) Introduce the Lizard People would get mixed up And Think The Abomination Is a Stronger Version of The Lizard. Any other theories?

I have a theory: Hulk sucks.

Because they wanted to make him look cooler than he did in the comics.

Also they had a personal vendetta against me and wanted to make him particularily gross looking. Just to bug me.

IH was a great movie :D

Best reboot I've seen since Batman Begins.

It was because there was no lizard type DNA in Blonsky, or how he got his powers, so naturally, the producers felt they should make him more like the Hulk, and less lizardy. It's logic.

Maybe they just didnot or wanted him to seem bad. Not look goofy and have the people watching the movie laugh.

..................................................... it was still a bad movie. There are plenty of better movie reboots.

It was centered around the Hulk: bad mistake.

It was a movie about the Hulk. I think it makes sense for it to be centered around him.

Yes. For that reason it was a bad film :P.

Nah, I'm just screwing: it was mediocre.

Ok, In the Spider-Man movie Green Goblin didn't look like how he does in the comic books, they changed him because the original Green Goblin costume is goofy and no one could take him seriously wearing that so they made him looker. Now Abomination was different because maybe they wanted to make him look more menacing and cooler.

Here's a unofficial answer, the had to make abomination look like a abomination because in the actual comics didn't look like a "abomination" 

of course its either that or its just marvel studios annoying tendency of switching and mix matching the elements of the actual comic books

I think Classic Abomination looks like the creature from the black lagoon on steroids. I would have changed his look if I was running the show.

i thought the movie green goblin was pretty damn silly looking.

I heard that the reason they made him look like he did in the movie was because the director, Louis Lettier said (I think) that he thought the Abomination's ears made him too vulnerable to Hulk, sort of like the Evander Holyfield/Mike Tyson fight. He said he could picture him ripping the ears off. My question regarding that is "Why not? That would've made for an AWESOME part during their fight!!!" Plus, they would've grown back anyway due to his healing factor.

The movie Abomination kinda sucked IMO, but Emil Blonsky was awesome, Tim Roth was the best part of the movie.

Yeah, Emil Blonsky is the greatest badass i've seen in a marvel movie, but in abomination form... Well let´s just say i didn't saw him being any related to Blonsky's fighting style or experience was just a green ugly (although cool looking) punchingbag.

The director said that he wouldn't look like the original Abomination because he didn't have any lizard DNA, so why look like a lizard. I think it would have looked alright if they put slight lizard accents around the eyebrows or point the ears. It wasn't bad. I agree that Blonsky was bad ass but Abom was a little bit lacking. I don't mind that they fought in NY, but they shouldn't have ended the fight in NY. I would love to see Hulk or Abom punch the other guy into another county.

The creators (of the movie) spent too much time playing Code Veronica prior to this, and the final boss image was so vivid in their minds that they forgot how to design The Abomination correctly....   (you asked for a theory, lol).

Because he looks lame in the comics.

Because sometimes what works in comics doesn't work in a live action movie.

I though it was a good film, but Blonsky's look new look kind of bugged me. I guess people who are new to the franchise might be confused as to why he would look like a fish.
