In June 2008, a new version of The Incredible Hulk hits theaters. Oddly enough, it has nothing to do with the disastrous film from a few years ago that starred Eric Bana.
In the upcoming flick, Edward Norton has already signed on to star as Bruce Banner - and we just found out against whom he'll be squaring off: the oversized adversary Abomination; and Tim Roth will play the villain's alter ego, Emil Blonsky.
Variety says Roth is joining Norton and Liv Tyler in the Louis Leterrier-directed film, which is being financed by Marvel Studios and distributed by Universal Pictures on June 13, 2008.
Blonsky is a KGB agent who deliberately exposes himself to the gamma rays that caused Banner to morph into the Hulk. Blonsky has upped the dosage, making him larger and stronger than the Hulk, but unable to change back to human form. He blames Banner for his problem, and makes his best efforts to destroy the Hulk.
