Bruce Who?

Could David Tennant be landing a dream Hollywood role playing Bruce Banner aka The Incredible Hulk? According to cinemablend.com, maybe.

Is former Doctor Who actor David Tennant the new Hulk?As you may or may not know, a movie called The Avengers is scheduled for cinema release in 2012. Directed (hopefully) by Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel creator Joss Whedon and starring Robert Downey Junior as Iron Man, Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury and a host of other actors playing Thor and Captain America. The premise is of a super hero group that protects the world via government funding. If you haven’t read the comics (later re titled The Ultimates) then go and check them out as they’re fantastic.

Part of this super group’s massive problem usually ends up being The Hulk who was last played by Ed Norton in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. Since Marvel Studios have now dropped Norton from the role, they’re looking to replace him and David Tennant has been mentioned as a possible successor.

As always, this is all rumour and conjecture at the moment but Tennant would fit the look of the character brilliantly and also bring a heart to the role that has been slightly lacking from the previous Hulk films.

Now he’s just got to start working at that American Accent…

What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!

    How on god’s green earth does the whippetlike David Tennant physically resemble the Incredible Hulk?

    Not the Hulk himself but the character of Bruce Banner!

    Oh, right. Then I think Tennant would be spot on for the part. Let’s hope he gets it.:)

    ‘re-titled the ultimates’
    The Ultimates was a rebooted Avengers set in a different continuity. The Avengers still exists in the regular continuity. I expect the movie will have elements of both (especially seeing as Nick Fury’s look in the Ultimate universe was based on Samuel L Jackson anyways as opposed to the caucasian Fury of the regular Marvel Universe). I think the comic is now called Ultimate Avengers but I’ve tried to ignore it since Jeph Loeb destroyed the Ultimate universe…

    aaanyways yeah it could be a good part for Tennant if it’s true.
