The statue reproduces the green superhero from Louis Leterrier's 2008 film of the
same name which is inspired by the famous comic book character from Marvel
Comics. It is a remake of the 2003 film signed by Ang Lee. Edward Norton plays the
role of the green giant and also contributed to the script writing. In this version of the
movie, Bruce Banner doesn’t become Hulk, due to the accidental hit of gamma rays,
as per Marvel tradition, but he undergoes an experiment at his own will. However,
Hulk always remains the good giant who just wants to be left alone.
Curiosity: Norton was also supposed to play Bruce Banner in The Avengers (2012)
and various sequels but was replaced by Mark Ruffalo. In an interview for the New
York Times, Norton explained that the reason for this change is due to different point
of views on the character. Norton wanted to give life to a cursed and introspective
Hulk, like Christopher Nolan's Batman, but the top management of Marvel Studios
wanted a lighter and entertaining character, and he gave up.
