First Look: The Incredible Hulk

First Look: The Incredible Hulk

The first pictures of
"The Incredible Hulk" have been released, giving us a sneak peek of one of this summer's most eagerly awaited blockbusters.

Edward Norton can be seen undergoing a radical transformation in the new photos as he takes the lead as the angry green superhero in director Louis Leterrier new version.

The $125 million sequel is rumoured to be more action-packed than previous director Ang Lee's 2003 effort, which received a lukewarm response from fans and critics.
Edward Norton plays scientist Bruce Banner who has been poisoned by gamma radiation and is desperately searching for a cure.

Unfortunately for him, the condition also means that whenever he gets angry he turns into his alter-ego - The Hulk.

The film also introduces a villain - The Abomination - a nightmarish beast of pure aggression whose powers match The Hulk's own.

Chased by the military who want to capture him and expolit his power, Banner must also escape from the clutches of his nemesis, General Thunderbolt Ross (William Hurt).

Banner is forced to make a choice between a peaceful life with Betty Ross (Liv Tyler), the woman he loves, or to find the heroism within The Hulk and run the risk of never changing back.

Tim Roth also joins the quality cast as well as Robert Downey Jr. reprising his role as Tony Stark, Iron Man's alter ego, in a scene with Hurt's General Thunderbolt Ross.

The Incredible Hulk is released in the UK on June 13.
