The original Incredible Hulk actor Lou Ferrigno is “not very impressed” with Marvel Studio’s depiction of the Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Lou Ferrigno originally played the green super-powered alter ego of Bill Bixby’s Dr David Banner in the 1978 television show. However, the former professional bodybuilder has taken issue with bringing the Hulk to life using digital technology and admits he doesn’t like “the way it looks.”
“Today you got all this CGI and everything. I don’t know what direction the Hulk is going,” Ferrigno told FabTV. “That’s why a lot of people go back, they refer back to the series because it’s more organic, more authentic.”
When it comes to the MCU Hulk, Ferrigno admitted he doesn’t like “the way it looks. Because it’s CGI, and nothing can replace what Bill Bixby and I did. “And the way Disney is shaping it, I’m not very impressed with it.”
When asked about the approach to use Smart Hulk in Avengers: Endgame, where Banner manages to successfully combine his human side with the ‘Other Guy’, Ferrigno claimed Hulk “needs to be hideous.”
“It needs to be a creature. They’ve taken away the chemistry,” he said. “That’s why a lot of people go back to the series. I have thousands of fans coming up and telling me how much they’re not happy with the way the Hulk looks.”
