First Look: The Abomination in The Incredible Hulk

Remarkably we're about 4 months away from seeing The Incredible Hulk yet there isn't a trailer or a single second of footage to be seen yet. For that matter, there isn't even a poster revealed! The only media from the movie is a set of photos. I really don't know what the heck Universal is doing with this move, but maybe they've got some tricks up their sleeve. This first look photo isn't even a real photo, it's a scan from an advertisement for toys from The Incredible Hulk, but I'll be damned, it's our very first look at Hulk's enemy, The Abomination. Given this is just about the only thing we've got from the movie, it's worth checking out.

Thanks to the guys at CHUD, we have a scan of this toy ad with The Abomination on it. The Hulk is on there, too, but he's pretty typical, so there's nothing new to see with him. Have a look below.

The Abomination in The Incredible Hulk

All that's known about the story in the film is that The Abomination eventually appears after Emil Blonsky, played by Tim Roth, is transformed into the creature. In the comic books, The Abomination first appeared in 1967 in an issue of Tales to Astonish.

Emil Blonsky was a KGB agent who becomes the Abomination after deliberately exposing himself to the same gamma radiation (but in a greater quantity) that transforms Bruce Banner into the Hulk. Blonsky survives the radiation as he (like Bruce Banner) belongs to a small minority born with a genetic factor that causes mutation instead of death. The monster he turns into has physical strength exceeding that of the Hulk. For more information on the character, head to Wikipedia. A photo of The Abomination from the comic books is included below for reference.

The Incredible Hulk is directed by French filmmaker Louis Leterrier of The Transporter, Unleashed, and The Transporter 2. The script for the film was originally written by Zak Penn (Behind Enemy Lines, X-Men 2, X-Men 3), but after joining the film as the lead character Bruce Banner, Edward Norton himself took over the reigns and re-wrote the screenplay. The Incredible Hulk arrives in theaters on June 13th this summer.

    Interesting! As long as there are no "Hulk" dogs anywhere, this movie seems to be hype worthy. I sure hope Ed Norton did the "Hulk" justice when he re-wrote the screenplay. I have my fingers crossed that this movie turns out to be impressive and awesome!!

    ok ummm... WTF is that? I actually ha dhope for this movie... but now. Why does Hollywood wanna rape my childhood so much? That is NOT the Abomination...
  • I'm wondering if the (eventual?) preview will deal with the Iron Man cross-over. Perhaps that is why they're waiting on the preview for a while.

    I saw the trailer.WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is he huge or what? So much better graphics than the last movie. Pretty soon as the graphics get better over the years, they won't need actors.
  • Bobzilla
    This Abomination looks to be based on the one from the Ultimates universe, rather than the traditional Marvel one. I wonder which version of Ant Man we will get, and what about the Wasp?
  • hey he looks fine
