    Who's the best Bruce Banner?

    Just watched Hulk with Eric Bana and that brought me and my daughter to discuss this.
    Of course she is going for Ruffalo and I have to agree. Though no one has done a bad job as the Dr. B.

    I didnt like Bana and I think Rufalo did a good job, but Norton IMO was the best.

    I know this is not a popular opinion but I like the Bana movie better than the Norton version.

    Ruffalo was great in The Avengers.

    I just liked it better. I thought Norton, whom I like a lot as an actor, was too whiny. also thought the whole Polar watch/heart monitor thing was ridiculous and gimmicky.

    the Bana version, while too slow and even existential at times, I thought did a great job portraying the origins of Banner's uncontrollable rage, which is what ultimately gives him his superpowers.

    uh, no thanks.




















    (I'm afraid if I say 'yes' I'll show up in a wizard hat and I'll be greeted by dudes in Red Robes and a gimp mask )

    I agree completely. I always liked the Ang Lee "Hulk" film. The film also scores some Jennifer Connelly bonus points.

    No love for Bill Bixby - Lou Ferrigno?




    I was always partial to the tight bell-bottoms he wore.

    Oh wait . . . you guys wouldn't be looking at that.

    The Bana Hulk was the worst film, but the scene in the desert while he was flying (jumping) and then fought the tanks was the best scene of Hulk in any film.

    That may be because Bixby didn't play Bruce Banner.

    In that series, he was named David Banner.

    IMO, Ruffalo killed the part. Norton, one of my favorite actors, was really disappointing.

    Bana was terrible.

    Ruffalo barely did anything.

    Norton was great.

    Bill Bixby was the man.
