“The Incredible Hulk” director Louis Leterrier talked with Wizard Magazine recently about why Universal decided to start over on the superhero franchise.
He also talked a little about the villains: “Obviously, General Ross is the villain, so he had to be in it,” added Leterrier. “But the Abomination, Emil Blonsky, was who Marvel wanted to put in this chapter — the first chapter of our new saga — because he’s the most famous. He’s an enemy that can actually threaten the Hulk.”
He adds “It’s very important for me that there is a danger. When Bruce Banner is Hulk, I didn’t feel in Ang Lee’s ‘Hulk’ that there was any threat. He was invincible. So with Abomination there’s actually a monster that can, you know, kill him when he’s in the Hulk form.”
