Part II of my vision/remake of the Marvel superheroes. Ignoring the story timelines from the Eric Bana, Edward Norton and Mark Ruffalo movies, including the Lou Ferringo TV series while borrowing some elements from all the original actors, comics, video games and current characterization.
Dr. Bruce Banner is a well-respected scientist who is studying the effects of gamma radiation in order to assist the military in creating a magnificently powerful weapon. He works alongside his girlfriend Betty Ross and her father General Thaddeus Ross to study the extraordinarily dangerous side of the weapon with some nuclear characteristics involved within the weapon.
One day, while testing out the weapon in an isolated deserted area, a frantic teenager who is locked into the blast radius is caught and rescued by Banner moments before the bomb goes off. The teenager makes it to the shelter just before witnessing a disturbing vision of Banner engulfed in flames and radiation.
However, while attempting to revive an almost dead Banner, doctors find the man miraculously healed from his wounds and burns. Things take a much horrifying turn when the fellow scientist transforms into an enormously green and brutally powerful hulk and escapes the military.
With the military desperately sweeping the incident under the rug and preventing the teenager from disclosing information about the experiment to the public eye, Banner believes that there may be a conspiracy involved with using the teen as a test subject and another force is bigger at play, someone who inside the military has sinister motives to use Banner’s blood sample after the accident to wreak havoc. General Ross sends one of his men, Emil Blonsky, to capture Banner and take him into custody.
Now declared a major threat to the world, Bruce Banner must go on the run and use his powerful abilities as a superhuman creature to find the man responsible for the conspiracy and avoid the military at all costs.
Loyalties will be tested, enemies will rise, and the stakes of Bruce’s life will be determined by his actions.
MPAA: Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence throughout, disturbing images, brief partial nudity, and mayhem.
Changes / Influences:
From the comics, Bruce Banner rescues teenager Rick Jones after he stumbles across the testing site. In this version, a shady man who works for the military uses him working for the military to lure Banner out into the open and later use his blood drawn by doctors to keep as a sample for testing his super soldier army.
The first half of the film will focus on Bruce Banner and his relationships with the military, Betty, and how he got involved with the super soldier project. The middle act will pay attention to Banner’s “Hulk-Outs” and him being on the run for a few years (fast forwarded a little). The last part will rely on Banner/Hulk attempting to work alongside the teenager he rescued to find the name of the man involved with the project.
This would later setup a sequel for this vision of the Hulk, with the superhero going through a journey to stop The Leader and his other villainous henchmen.
Bruce Banner would be a Tony Stark like character from the Iron Man movies minus the egotistical side.
The Hulk would only display abilities of super strength, super speed, and regenerative healing while he slowly discovers different abilities throughout the first part of this origin, leaving room for the hero to discover new powers in the sequel.
Samuel Sterns (the main antagonist) will be a Lex Luthor like character. I don’t want to overdo the character by making him a super villain right away, but instead build his character up and his reasons for wanting to start his own project originally devised by the military.
Emil Blonsky is the secondary villain of the movie and secretly works alongside with Sterns to prevent Banner from destroying his own blood samples, transforming himself into the Abomination.
A balance between drama and action will be involved, with the drama towards Banner’s internal conflict with his newfound abilities and how it affects the people around him, while the action is involved in the military pursuing the Hulk and the hero attempting to reach the Leader before his untimely escape.
