18 Incredibly Smashing Hulk T-Shirts
It may have been Kermit the Frog who coined “It’s not easy being green.” But that amphibian has had a fairly consistent Hollywood career. While another green celebrity, The Incredible Hulk, has had a bit more of a rocky road to fame. But you’d never know it from his brief appearance in the Thor: Ragnarok trailer, which took that great teaser into another level.
A decade ago, a glimpse of the Incredible Hulk would elicit laughs over cheers. The not-so-jolly green giant had a tough time smashing his way onto the big screen. Ang Lee’s Hulk was a hot mess, and while the follow-up, The Incredible Hulk was not as bad, it was not the Wrath of Khan the series needed to move forward (and rumor has it, Edward Norton was not the easiest actor to work with).
Most of us expected Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner/Hulk to be the weakest link in the first Avengers movie. The third try at the character was sure to feel out of place with a collection of actors/characters we’d gotten to know and care about in other films. But much to our surprise, the Hulk stole the show! His love/hate relationship with Thor was one of the highlights in the first Avengers movie. And now we get to see them more mono e mono in Thor: Ragnarok.
I for one am happy to see The Hulk finally returning to his green glory. I am old enough to remember sitting in front of the television on Friday nights in the 1970s to watch Bill Bixby transform into Lou Ferrigno’s Incredible Hulk. To this day it’s remembered by the quote: “Don’t make me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.” Today’s Hulk has the simpler: “I’m always angry.”
This angry creature makes for some swell Hulk t-shirts. Here are a few you wouldn’t want to rip apart if ever you’re exposed to a great amount of Gamma Rays.
