The Incredible Hulk Gets Its Abomination: Tim Roth

AbominationCasting news for the new Incredible Hulk has been coming in full force over the last month, with Liv Tyler announced recently as Bruce Banner's love interest. The latest today is a confirmation of the new villain, Abomination, and the incredibly talented actor who will play him.

This time around the new villain will be the equally as monstrous Abomination, a supervillain in the Marvel Universe that first appeared in Tales to Astonish Vol. 1 #90 in 1967. Actor Tim Roth will play Abomination's alter ego Emil Blonsky, a KGB agent who deliberately exposes himself to the gamma rays that caused Bruce Banner to morph into the Hulk. Blonsky upped the dosage, making him larger and stronger than the Hulk, but unable to change back to human form. He blames Banner for his problem, and makes his best efforts to destroy the Hulk.

In an interesting report a couple of days ago on IGN's FilmForce, they mentioned that Abomination won't actually ever be called Abomination in the movie. Zak Penn, who wrote the screenplay for the movie, commented that the character "will not be called the Abomination out loud in the film because it's a silly, silly name." I guess that's good to hear, but what are they going to refer to him as? We'll just have to wait and see.

This is sounding better and better, almost like a dream cast. I really think this will turn out to be the awesome Hulk movie we all wanted in 2003 but didn't get. Roth will be joining Edward Norton as Bruce Banner / Hulk for the Louis Leterrier directed film that's set to open June 13th,2008.

    People need to remember that the movie is entertainment. If you feel that it is too much for your children, don't allow them to view it. It's just that simple. I know movies are impressionalble to children, but you don't have to worry about them throwing a 2000 pound car or jumping from town to town. Get real !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
