!!For [[Film/{{Hulk}} the film]]:
* ActorAllusion: Betty's long-suffering, "Bruce, I hate them" is likely a reference to Creator/JenniferConnelly's line from ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}''.
* AwesomeDearBoy: Creator/SamElliott accepted the role of General Ross without reading the script, being simply excited to work with Creator/AngLee.
* CreatorKiller: The mixed reception nearly killed Creator/AngLee's career but that did not stop him from making ''Film/BrokebackMountain'' and ''Film/LifeOfPi''.
* DoingItForTheArt: As with all other Creator/AngLee films.
** Creator/NickNolte decided to join in all because it is about a Greek tragedy.
* DyeingForYourArt: Creator/NickNolte had his hair grown wildly for this movie when he was arrested on drunk driving charges and photographed for his now infamous mug shot.
* FanNickname: "Absorbing Dad" for Bruce's father, 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).
* HeyItsThatPlace: The house used by Betty Ross was also used in ''Film/ToKillAMockingbird''.
* IKnewIt: Some fans knew that David Banner would have absorbing powers by the end.
* LifeImitatesArt: Over a decade since the film came out, nanomeds are real with the right technology.
* MissingTrailerScene: The 2002 teaser was composed of completely original footage.
* OldShame: Averted with Ang Lee and Eric Bana who had no regrets doing the film.
* PromotedFanboy: Creator/EricBana decided to join because he is a fan of the Hulk, Sam Elliott and Nick Nolte.
* StillbornFranchise: As the quote atop that trope's page shows, they had to follow this with a reboot.
** However, there was a video game that continued the events of the movie. In fact, [[EvenBetterSequel the video game was better received than the film itself.]]
* ThoseTwoActors:
** Creator/JenniferConnelly and Creator/NickNolte previously collaborated in Film/MulhollandFalls.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** In an early version of the script, Talbot became the Abomination and fought the Hulk at the end of the movie.
** James Schamus had begun work on the script for the sequel before the release of ''Hulk'' and early drafts featured the Gray Hulk. Schamus was also considering the Leader and the Abomination (who's still Talbot) as the main villains.
*** The Leader eventually became the villain of the video game sequel.
** 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. Creator/BillyCrudrup also turned it down. Other candidates were Creator/SteveBuscemi, Creator/TomCruise, Creator/JohnnyDepp, Creator/DavidDuchovny and Creator/JeffGoldblum.

!!For [[VideoGame/{{Hulk}} the game]]:

* CelebrityVoiceActor: Creator/EricBana voiced Bruce Banner in the game.
