Monster's Brawl

Earlier this week, I posted a few screencaps and the link to the new trailer for the upcoming The Incredible Hulk movie (which stars Ed Norton as Bruce Banner and Liv Tyler as Betty Ross) but I failed to pay much attention to the supervillain/arch nemesis Abomination played by Tim Roth. Here are a couple of higher res pics of Roth as Emil Blonsky/Abomination (who, unlike Bruce Banner, cannot switch back to human form and must remain as Abomination for all time):

It has been many years since I read any of the Hulk comics and honestly, my main source of knowledge of the Hulk mythos comes from the 1970's TV show The Incredible Hulk which starred Bill Bixby as Dr. David Bruce Banner and Lou Ferrigno as The Hulk (and which never dealt with the relationship between Bruce and Betty and never, to my knowledge, featured Abomination). That being the case, I am very thrilled that the producers of this new movie have decided to delve back into the mythology of the comic books to bring The Hulk back to the big screen. I don't have the time nor the inclination to go into another tirade on how badly the first Hulk movie sucked ... I merely wanted to gush that this new film looks like it's gonna turn out really kickass. Click HERE to check out the trailer (again, if need be) to see what I'm talking about. [Source]
