Hulk No More Smash? Hulk Sad…

I really hope that Marvel looks at the critical success, and the word-of-mouth spread by moviegoers when deciding if to free up the funds for a sequel. While this new movie may not outperform, or even keep up, with Iron Man’s box office take, I think it’s assumed that DVD sales of The Incredible Hulk will be through the roof, and fans will be clamoring for another go with the Jolly Green Giant.

Five years ago, “Hulk,” the first movie based on Marvel’s
hulking green comic book character, rang up $245 million in
worldwide box office but was widely dismissed as a commercial
failure.

The second attempt, “The Incredible Hulk,” amped up the fun
factor and dialed down the brooding of director Ang Lee‘s
original but is unlikely to gross significantly higher than its
predecessor and might not spawn a sequel. And it’s been dubbed
a success.
After four weekends, the Louis Leterrier-directed “The
Incredible Hulk” has earned $125 million, the same as what
Hulk” had pulled in at the same time in its run. “Hulk”
finished with $132 million, and its successor is unlikely to do
much better.
But Marvel has yet to greenlight a Hulk sequel.
“Then with the new Hulk film, Marvel was able to underplay
the importance of the success after the great success of ‘Iron
Man’ this summer,” Davis said. “So the new one overdelivered,
relative to its underpromise.”
