The period biopic, starring Kelvin Harrison Jr (The Chicago 7 trial) as the titular character, is lower than aa Hamiltonclone of what you might expect.

The Incredible Hulk

Release date: June 16th

15 years after its theatrical debut (and nearly four years since Disney Plus launched as a platform), the second MCU film has joined its siblings on Disney’s main streamer.

That’s right, from 2008 The Incredible Hulk raided Disney Plus. Until now, Marvel couldn’t add him to the streamer’s video library since Universal held the rights to the character. Now that this deal has ended, they’re free to add the only Hulk solo film in the MCU to the platform.

Fans familiar with Marvel’s cinematic juggernaut, however, won’t find current Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo in this film. In 2008, Marvel instead cast Edward Norton as Bruce Banner/his green-skinned, angry alter ego. However, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has replaced Norton with Ruffalo since 2012 avengers onward (Norton also reportedly didn’t want to return), which is why the character just doesn’t look like what it used to be.

Using archival footage – home-made video, interviews and audio recordings – it’s a must-see documentary that diehard Marvel fans, plus more casual MCU viewers will want to stream as soon as possible. A notable inclusion in our new Disney Plus movie guide, even if some details inside aren’t 100% true.
