* FanNickname: "Absorbing Dad" for the first film, due to the character having the powers of Absorbing Man from the comics (who as a side note is not a relative of Bruce Banner, and gained his powers from magic).
* StillbornFranchise: As the quote atop that trope's page shows, they had to follow this with a reboot.
* The CGI Hulk was modeled on bodybuilders Gunter Schlierkamp (body) and Lee Priest (arms).
* Creator/EdwardNorton, who would go on to play the title character in the ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'', was actually in the running for the role here but turned down the role because he didn't like the script.
