Will we ever get a decent Hulk movie?

Of all the characters I most wanted to see a movie of it was Hulk, but the 2002 and 2008 films disappointed in many ways. The 2002 one I preferred until the long drawn out over theatrical end and the 2008 movie I thought showed a very weakened Hulk indeed. Anyway, it made me wonder if the Hulk is the sort of character who can actually stand up in his own film, or perhaps he needs to be with other characters like the Avengers. By far the best portrayal of Hulk so far was in the Avengers movie where he was able to lock horns with Thor and Loki and scare the living daylights out of Black Widow! What do you think? will we ever get a really good Hulk movie? I mean if Wolverine can have his own movie surely Hulkster can.

The last one was decent, not spectacular but it was pretty good, and Wolverine didn't have an even semi decent movie thus far and the new one isn't looking a whole lot better from the trailers

I agree with the previous posts The Incredible Hulk was pretty cool.

@bezza: This thread begs the question of what you think makes a "decent" movie. Since many comments already acknowledge what I believe as well, that the most recent Hulk film was really quite good, what are you using as criteria for acceptance into your "decent" movie category?

Well, I think I was disappointed with Hulk's strength showings. Way too weak IMHO. Also didn't think Ed Norton was a decent Banner. Hence for me, it disappointed. The Ruffalo Hulk in avengers seemed about right.

What was wrong with the Incredible Hulk movie? Its one of my top five favorite Comic Book movies.

The sequel will have the leader. Intelligent/Plotter villains usually make more entertaining and better films imo so we'll see.

Personally i rank the 2008 movie better than Thor, Captain America and Iron Man 2 with the only movies in phase one better than it Avengers and Iron Man.

I don't know why people think Incredible Hulk was a bad movie.

I really liked the newest Hulk movie. I didn't really find anything wrong with it.

We're supposed to get a Ruffalo Hulk movie, I think. Here's to hoping that's good.

It's called, "Planet Hulk" and it is a animated movie. Planet Hulk is on Netflix so go watch it.

Hulk Vs. Abomination was pretty damn sweet.

The last Hulk film was decent. Not great, but it was at least decent.
