How could you judge so harshly on a few trailers he's barely even been in? We've seen more of the Hulk than Banner.

I really don't think they are Skrulls.

They might be. Could be a pretty sweet redesign.

The lower chins on them looks like the Skrulls. I remember Marvel said that they are not in the movie, I don't know what to think now? I guess Marvel likes to troll with the fans again ;).

Chitauri and Skrull are nearly synonymous in the ultimate universe. They don't even exist in the main one, at least not to my knowledge.

^I know. Eh, they're probably not, but the Chitauri story would fit in well with what they've done already. Plus, this is all obviously taking many cues from the original Ultimates series. Loki and the Chitauri? You've already kind of mashed up the first and second series there...

I'm willing to give Ruffalo a chance, and he seems fine, it's just that the trailer isn't playing up the aspects of Banner I like to see.


I did not care for Ed Norton or The Incredible Hulk at all. I adored Hulk, and Eric Bana. (Also, Liv Tyler and William Hurt were pathetically miscast compared to Jennifer Connelly and Sam Elliott)

The movie seems to be pulling more from the Ultimates version of Banner (and Thor), so I'll accept it, even though it's not my favorite characterization of Banner either.

And I feel the exact opposite. I admired Hulk for its ambition in trying to be cerebral, but having abition and being successful are two opposite things. And while I normally love Eric Bana, but he was awful in that movie. Connelly proves time after time she doesn't have a hint of talent above her chest, and don't get me started on Nolte ("I'll go! YOU WATCH ME GO!"). The Incredible Hulk was far more successful in what it set out to do than Hulk was, and for that alone I consider it the better film. The fact that I found it an effective action thriller on its own meant that it was a film I genuinely enjoyed. If Ang Lee's movie wasn't an entire clusterskreeonk, maybe I'd admire it for different reasons. But it is, and I don't.

Fingers are crossed on it being Beta Ray Bill's species. This seems like a prime opportunity to set up for some cosmic stuff.

I'm thinking they might be the Badoon.

And I hear the giant snake-thing will just be called the 'Leviathan.' :?

^What if they're just frost giants with futuristic/space tech Loki has acquired? The new shots of the toys really had me thinking they looked like the frost giants wearing fancy armor...

Unless they became freaky zombie goat-men I don't think they're Frost Giants.

I have seen alot of speculation online that they could be Skrull. But I just don't see it.

Online reports after the advance screenings say they're the Chitari.
