Lou Ferringo, shared why he was let down?
At Canada’s Hamilton Comic Con, Ferrigno explained his disappointment, stating, “What’s happening is that the first two Hulk movies, the CGI was improving, but the last one, Endgame, I was disappointed,” he said. Ferrigno added, “Because the Hulk needs to be hideous, he needs to be a creature.”
The actor went on to place most of the blame on Disney and actor Mark Ruffalo. “You see in Endgame, Mark Ruffalo — I think it has a lot to do with him and Disney — I didn’t like the way it portrayed [Hulk],” Ferrigno continued. “It took away that beauty, that quality of the Hulk. That’s why a lot of people liked the series.”
The Incredible Hulk series premiered on November 4, 1977 and starred Bill Bixby as Dr. David Bruce Banner and Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk. Ferrigno also had a cameo in 2003’s Hulk. Additionally, he provided the voice of the Hulk in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk.
