Hulk (2003) (part 4 of 13)

The whiteness of the previous fade-out dissolves to somebody’s shaving water, and the camera pans around to a blurry shot of Eric Bana in an already foggy mirror. This is supposed to be our star reveal, I guess. The camera zooms in on adult Bruce’s eye, which turns slightly green.

And then he turns into a giant green monster and destroys the building and—oh, sorry. He actually just rides his bike to work. My mistake. As for the shot of his eye turning green, I’m sure that means something. To someone.

Bruce is now at, as a caption informs us, the “Berkeley Nuclear Biotechnology Institute”. He’s still wearing his bike helmet as he walks past two security guards, and oh, look! It’s Lou Ferrigno and Stan Lee as the security guards! I have to admit that seeing them is actually a pretty cool and funny moment. In fact, I’m going to go back and watch it again. Ahhh. I’d call it pointless, but it’s a cameo, and I think pointlessness is the point of most cameos. And it kind of makes me wonder what schizophrenic hired both a bodybuilder and a frail 80 year old man to do security, but it’s still good stuff. This is the last good stuff we’ll be seeing for a while.
