the hulk deleted scene


I went to an “Art of” Book singing for AoU and they had two of the story artists who worked on the film and they shared some of the scenes they worked on!!

I’m gonna do a big post of all the stuff that was cut/changed tomorrow when I get my notes together but.





EDIT: 5/10/2015

Hey everyone! I’m currently writing out the notes I took on those scenes. I’ll probably have to split it into two parts. But i’m almost done with the first.

Betty Ross’s TIH Ending

postcards–from–faraway​ has a really great meta up that mentions Betty Ross and laments that she’s just left hanging at the end of The Incredible Hulk.

But! Fun fact about The Incredible Hulk — the deleted scenes are the best parts. Not only does everything make way more sense and General Ross’s righthand man is a fully developed, kickass lady, Betty gets hers in the end.

(Skip to 27:31 for the scene)

Here, Betty gets a call from her boyfriend, whom she calmly confronts about selling Bruce out earlier in the film. She then forgives him, because she’s too moral and understanding and awesome to hold a grudge. 

Betty: I forgive you. But I’m not coming home yet.

Leonard: Where are you going?

Betty: I have no idea. But I’ll let you know when I do, I promise. Goodbye, Leonard.

Betty, who is a well-balanced individual who does not have issues with self-loathing, is brave enough to say goodbye and considerate enough to keep the people who love her informed of her whereabouts. 

As much as I love Bruce Banner, he does not at this juncture deserve Betty Ross.

And Betty Ross is not going to sit around and wait for him. She’s going to take some time to find herself, and she’s going to move on with her life, probably with Leonard, who will wait for her, something in another deleted scene she asks Bruce why he didn’t do.

So, yeah, The Incredible Hulk is definitely flawed but could have been a much better story and had a much better conclusion for Betty Ross had they left in the really compelling character moments shown in the deleted scenes. 

Now let’s all imagine Betty Ross getting wine drunk with Natasha Romanoff and serenely talking shit about Bruce Banner’s runaway tendencies. 


Bruce’s suicide attempt (The Incredible Hulk)

What happens? As an alternate opening, Bruce Banner is up in some snowy mountains. Having given up hope of curing his condition, he gets a gun out and begins trying to kill himself. The Hulk has different ideas, though. Meanwhile, Captain America is frozen far below.

Why didn’t it make the cut? At a guess, it was deemed too dark for the opening sequence of a family film. The scene remains in the ‘head canon’ of many though, especially after Bruce recalled putting a bullet in his mouth during The Avengers.
