Admittedly I'm part of the camp that found the film to be awesome. I've been praising it to whoever listens and will keep doing so because I feel this is the one Marvel Animated movie that should not be missed. It was near perfection.
And much like you I'm still scratching my head about the whole Beta Ray Bill and Silver Surfer swap. I was watching it last night with my brother where he decided to question me on Beta Ray Bill and where he came from and how much of a bada$$ mofo he was and yadda yadda yadda and I had to flat out tell him that BRB was not a part of the original arc.
Overall, even with the minor flaws, the movie was awesome and Marvel should definitely follow this same formula in the future.
It wasss sooo bad, I'll give you one thing I liked the animation but the rest of it was just plain awful ( in my opinion ). The ending was the worst, Caiera and Hulk had no chemistry throughout the entire movie, but TRUE to the story they managed to awkwardly just kinda decide that they were in Love two minutes before the credits were about to roll.I mean come on they left out the Story and gave us a movie where hulk is beating people up in a gladiator ring then a town and palace. Don't get me wrong I love hulk smashing as much as the next guy, but this movie barely covers any of the major points of the story and changes everything else they decided was movie worthy enough to include in this failed attempt at animating Planet Hulk
0.5 out of 5
So then my eyes didn't deceive me when I thought I saw Gamora in the crowd then! I knew I wasn't crazy.
". Saw the movie and it is really good and suprised at some of the changes. There are also cameos in the crowd for many of the "cosmic" marvel fans.

The source material is too long to adapt into roughly 1 1/2 hours. They took the most important pieces of the original and put that onto the screen. I saw the relationship between Caiera and Hulk as two things. For Hulk, it was convenience with a little bit of emotional attachment. Caiera was one of the very few people in his life who didn't see him as a monster. If I was called a dork my whole life and one good looking woman said I was cool. I'd ask her to marry me right then. For Caiera, Hulk avenged the death of her people, her family, and saved the world from a corrupt king. Hulk is the most powerful man on the planet. She is obviously a star-f#$ker. J/K. He's done everything right in her eyes. Their chemistry didn't really evolve until the last act of the film, and that's why it may seemed forced.
I just said this on IE's facebook but I'll say it here too
I didn't really care for the film....In all the other Marvel animated movies featuring the Hulk there was always that moment where I was like "whoa, the Hulk is a badass" in Ultimate Avengers it was when he took on the other Avengers, in the Next Avengers it was his fight with Ultron, in Hulk Vs. it was when he made Sabretooth piss himself, but there was no "whoa" moment in this film....at no point was I impressed with Hulk's strength or durability....I felt like all the villains in the movie could have been taken down by Spider-man...there was no suspense
I just watched it again
And did anyone else notice one of the The Elders of the Universe
The Grand Master was standing behind the curtain
When the Red King was applauding the Hulk after killing the first monster
Wonder what was the significance
I just read the series and it is quite honestly... amazing. The movie on the other hand is the biggest pile of crap ever. They took out everything that made the story amazing, including ended it in a happy little moment instead of following the story through to it's heartbreaking ending! They took out Silver Surfer, they staged ALL the fights in the arena instead of all the many locations they take place in the book. My apologies to those who enjoyed this film, but I can't think of one reason to go see this film. You're better off going and re-watching Superman Returns like five times in a row (and yes I'm implying that that film was a pile of crap too).
1st Ed -
Please excuse my hostility I don't mean anything by it, I am just expressing my general anger with the way they pretty much raped Hulks true character.
This was the worst raping of the Hulk franchise that ever took place. Where do I begin, first off this is an ABSOLUTE 100% rip off of Spartacus, down to the fucking tunics, the phrasing & language, the layout, PRIMUS? LMAO. PATHETIC. These writers couldn't come up with something original they had to steal one of the oldest & most known stories of all time. The animation style is like a cheap Saturday morning cartoon, nothing like Hulk VS Thor or Hulk VS Wolverine, which I consider the epitome of all that is HULK.
The Little Mermaid has better animation, this was just one of the biggest let downs of Hulk I have had the misfortune to witness. They drew Hulk like a little pussy, he's extremely weak compared to anything I've seen Hulk do in the past, he never once rages out like he does in Hulk vs 2009. He fucking talks like a man & never turns into Banner once. I can't say enough crap about this, if you want to maintain the image of HULK as truly HULK, DO NOT WATCH OR READ THIS BOOK.
They even dressed him up as Spartacus, I mean come on really? You fuckin writers couldn't come up with an original story? Hulk is wearing the same Subligaria(cloth underwear) that Spartacus wore in Rome, & even more of an insult THE SAME FUCKING ARMOR ON THE SAME SIDE OF HIS SHOULDER. EVEN THE FUCKING SHIELDS ARE EXACT COPIES OF SPARTACUS. This is just an insult to any intelligent person who has any concept of history. I suppose they were relying on people being stupid & not knowing anything about history to think they could get away with this.
Oh & I love when all these douche bags come up with little cop outs like... oh it's an alternative universe, or oh yeah he learned to talk, yes he did, but never that fluently, & another favorite of mine, he keeps banners mind that's why he's such a pussy. By now you know I'm being sarcastic, for one, he ALWAYS keeps banners mind, ALWAYS, Hulk regularly communicates with banner in his head, his rage still causes him to speak like a child.
Anyone who disagrees is just not a hardcore Hulk fan.
I am so angry that these douche bags ruined the image of THE HULK for me. The best thing I can do is pretend I never saw it & hope it slips from my mind.
