Hulk 2 plot revealed

From moviesonline, The plot for HULK 2 has finally been revealed by Cinematical ( via Filmstalker ). Hulk 2 find's scientist Bruce Banner living in shadows, scouring the planet for an antidote. But the warmongers who dream of abusing his powers won't leave him alone, nor will his need to be with the only woman he has ever loved, Betty Ross (Liv Tyler).

Upon returning to civilization, our brilliant doctor is ruthlessly pursued by The Abomination (Tim Roth) -- a nightmarish beast of pure adrenaline and aggression whose powers match The Hulk's own. A fight of comic-book proportions ensues as Banner must call upon the hero within to rescue New York City from total destruction. And on June 13, 2008, one scientist must make an agonizing final choice -- accept a peaceful life as Bruce Banner or the creature he could permanently become: The Incredible Hulk.

The fact that Edward Norton and Tim Roth star in the sequel has me very excited! Here is hoping for a HULK movie worth watching after the drivel that was the first one.

“The plot for HULK 2 has finally been revealed…”

I totally resent that “finally.”

When I was a kid I saw a generic closed/open sign that said “Sorry, we’re closed” and “Yes, we’re open!” on the opposite sides. Even as a kid I disliked the assumption that the store’s hourly status was of grave concern to anyone whose eyes caught the sign. I like hype, but to this day I can’t stand hype that’s obviously self-propelled.

It’s pretty much the same problem I have with the assumed necessity of prequels, as I griped here earlier today.

To a far lesser extent, I feel that way about opera. It seems to spend a lot of energy pointing out to you how grand and epic it all is.

But I’m actually thinking the Hulk movie might be good.
