Hurt talks Hulk
Posted 02.08.08 by reelz
While promoting his latest flick, Sony's upcoming action thriller Vantage Point, star William Hurt (Mr. Brooks, A History of Violence) took time out to talk about his role in The Incredible Hulk, Louis Leterrier's upcoming re-boot of the Marvel franchise left dormant after 2003's disappointing Hulk:
"I'm General Ross, father of the paramour of Bruce (Banner) and the nemesis -- so-called conflicted nemesis -- of The Hulk," said Hurt. "He wants Hulk's power but is humiliated by Hulk's conscience, which he actually sees -- and occasionally recognizes -- is actually more developed than his own, even though he's a patriot and a warrior for his country. He's sacrificed immensely for that purpose, but at the expense of, at times, all of his humanity, which he occasionally recovers glimpses of."
As you might guess, General Ross is the flick's main villain. The Incredible Hulk opens nationwide June 13, 2008.
