* AdaptationalHeroism: Played with by Samuel Sterns. In the comics, Sterns is one of the more diabolical villains in that universe, but Sterns is introduced in the film as an eccentric and careless but mostly harmless scientist who tries to cure Banner. [[spoiler: After attempting to cure Banner, we then see that Sterns has stockpiled and reproduced Banner's irradiated blood for experimenting. The last we see of him, he's beginning to undergo his transformation into the villainous Leader.]] Although he has yet to return to the films, the comic tie-in continues his story.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: In this version, Banner says it is an elevated heart rate that triggers his transformation (instead of the traditional fear/anger/adrenaline combo), and later he stops just before having sex with Betty when his pulse monitor goes off. However, the heart rate that triggers Hulk-outs is shown to be an even 200 beats per minute. Discounting the unlikelihood of that happening, this leaves everything in the range of 150-200 beats per minute, the ''low'' end of which is a target heart rate for strenuous activity for someone of Bruce's age, perfectly safe. His heart rate should probably kill him long before an event is triggered, but instead, we're told that he gets far too excited during foreplay. [[spoiler: It all becomes a moot point in ''The Avengers'' where Tony theorizes that the Hulk chooses when to come out. This is usually to protect Banner in dangerous (i.e. stressful and heart pounding) situations.]]

** Betty's new boyfriend is pretty obviously Doc Samson, while the doctor working with Bruce is Samuel Sterns, destined to be The Leader. [[spoiler: During the climax, a bit of Bruce Banner's blood falls into a head wound that Sterns has. His head than starts pulsing and expanding as he gives a sinister smile...]]

* MasterOfYourDomain: Banner learns meditative breathing techniques from a martial arts master played by Rickson Gracie in order to suppress his transformations. Several times he's shown lowering his pulse rate, [[spoiler: and the final scene shows him ''inducing'' a transformation through meditation (presumably because he doesn't want to have to [[DieOrFly jump out of a helicopter]] every time).]]

* TheReveal: [[spoiler: The very ending shows Banner consciously inducing a Hulk episode, but cuts off immediately, leaving the circumstances and Banner's new direction ambiguous. In the ''Avengers'' movie, Banner reveals that anger management isn't much of an issue anymore, and he is in a constant state of TranquilFury. He can control the Hulk transformation to some extent, and the Hulk himself is slightly tamer, less mindless, and more amenable to cooperation with others.]]

** The same genetic cocktail that created the Abomination [[spoiler: seeps into a wound on Dr. Samuel Sterns forehead, causing his transformation into the Leader.]] Where exactly this will end up now is unknown, since the sequel seems to have been abandoned, though the fate of Samuel Sterns was given in the lead-in comic for ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', "Fury's Big Week."

* TheStinger: [[spoiler:Tony Stark]] appears shortly before the credits and converses with General Ross (who is [[DrowningMySorrows drowning his sorrows]] at a bar). [[spoiler:Stark]] reprimands him on the consequences of the supersoldier project that resulted in its prior cancellation, and tells him that they are putting together [[Film/TheAvengers2012 a team.]] [[spoiler: ''[[Film/MarvelOneShots The Consultant]]'' (featured on the ''Thor'' Blu-Ray) reveals that SHIELD sent Stark specifically so he'd piss Ross off and cause him to ''refuse'' to let the Abomination be on the team, something the WSC were pushing for.]]

''The Incredible Hulk'' is a 2008 film based on the character of the same name; following the trend of rebooting a franchise rather than creating a sequel to an unpopular first effort, this film takes place in a different continuity from [[Film/{{Hulk}} the 2003 version]] and is part of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse.
