Hulk Not Grey, Joker Not Real

Two of the bigger scoops on film site’s in the last few days have been shot down.

First up all that talk of a grey Hulk in “The Incredible Hulk”? a Joke misconstrued by over-eager journalists. Arad explained the talk to Empire Online yesterday saying “It’s a different shade of green. But the colour is not like the old Hulk. And no, there’s no grey Hulk… He’ll be instinctive, like a primal creature.”

Meanwhile yesterday’s huge tizzy about the Heath Ledger photo? Well its been confirmed as a fake as well – a rather clever amalgam/manipulation of a Heath Ledger photo from a film premiere with an old Orlando Bloom make-up test photo from “The Lord of the Rings”.

In fact you can see how the fake was pulled off in a posting over at the forums of Superhero Hype. Other sources have indicated to me that other stuff linked to the film (script pages, Keaton’s apparent link) are all also fake. So far the only genuine scoops have been the few Chicago eyewitness reports of the post office shooting, and those paparazzi photos on Friday.
