- Actor Allusion: Betty's long-suffering, "Bruce, I hate them" is likely a reference to Jennifer Connelly's line from Labyrinth.
- Fan Nickname: "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).
- Stillborn Franchise: 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).
- Edward Norton, who would go on to play the title character in the The Incredible Hulk, was actually in the running for the role here but turned down the role because he didn't like the script.
