What If The Hulk Was Made in the 90s?

Dive with us into the multiverse as we become a Marvel podcast for a week! In another timeline in the 90s, Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston directed a Hulk film written by Jonathan Hensleigh, starring Billy Crudup as Bruce Banner, with practical effects and prosthetics used for the Hulk!

0:00 Introduction

Big thanks to our fan Axel Martinez, who requested this episode and sent over the script.

00:02:59 Zack, Andrew, and Ben's History With the Hulk

The deleted scene from Avengers: Infinity War of Bruce merging with Hulk that Ben was referring to is here:

00:09:53 What Is the Jonathan Hensleigh Hulk Project?

00:16:27 What Happens in the Jonathan Hensleigh Hulk Script?

Many of the visuals came from Twitter user @HulkArchives in tweet threads like here and here.

The casting of Gregory Sporleder as Novack and Lynn Red Williams as Deacon comes from this old Variety article.

00:31:12 Break: Chat of the Wild promo, Barkbox promo, "Magneto & Pete-O" Finale with Ben as Magneto, Andrew as Pete-O, Zack as the Green Goblin, and KookieNomz voicing as the last character

This is a promo for another podcast in the Greenlit Podcast Network, No More Whoppers, which you can find here.

Check out our link for Barkbox here.

This sketch completes the "Magneto & Pete-O" Saga that debuted in the Patreon episode "Swanwick The Martian Manhunter." It features Magneto and Pete-O on the search for Magneto's daughter, Wanda, since WandaVision was airing at the time. When we left off, Magneto and Pete-O had gotten to Westview too late (which is why Magneto didn't make a big cameo that everyone was expecting in the finale!) and befriended Agent Jimmy Woo.

Zack's Green Goblin getting shat on by Andrew's Pete-O is a multiversal reference to Zack's Vulko (another Willem Dafoe character) getting pissed at Andrew's Aquaman shitting in the ocean.

Superhero Stuff You Should Know fan KookieNomz contributes her voice as Wanda/Scarlet Witch at the end, referencing the post-credits scene of WandaVision where the character is in a cabin. This is the second sketch that Kookie has contributed to, having previously played Faora in our Man of Steel opening sketch.

We thanks SuperVoid Cinema at the end, who had their own video on the many cancelled Hulk scripts and a section that also covered this specific project:

01:09:03 Closing: Fan Comments & Social Media Promotions
