DC Comics First Looks -- and much more!

THE INCREDIBLE HULK IMAGES

As part of its 2008 preview, Universal Pictures on Thursday released the first two images from The Incredible Hulk movie.

Both images show Edward Norton as Bruce Banner, described as "a scientist desperately hunting for a cure to the gamma radiation that poisoned his cells and unleashes the unbridled force of rage."

The first image evokes imagery from CBS' The Incredible Hulk television series, a definite source of inspiration for the film, according to director Louis Leterrier.

"My first exposure to the Hulk was the Bill Bixby/Lou Ferrigno TV show," he said. "I loved it. And that's what really attracted me to this project. When I first met them, I told them, 'If you want me to do the Hulk, I'd love to go back to the TV show origin, to have the TV show feel.'"

Norton, one of the writers on the movie, was also a fan of the TV series.

"People say, 'Oh, Ferrigno and the green paint and the 70's kitsch,'" Norton said. "But when you watch that show, it really doesn't talk down to the idea of the story. It takes it very seriously. And Bill Bixby, when you watch him acting in it, he's really amazing in it. He brings this incredible, lonely pathos to the character.

"That was what drew me to it, this idea of a mortal person at war with this thing inside of me, sort of the lonely fugitive aspect to it."

The Incredible Hulk is scheduled for a June 13 release. Click on the thumbnails for larger images.
