Not this time.  The final scene of the film is kind of like what was after the credits on the Iron Man film.  I did actually stay all the way till the end and so did quite a few others.  Guess IM had them in that frame of mind.

Saw the Hulk today and was not disappointed.  Although I wish I had seen the "don't have to stay through the credits" posts beforehand.

I saw Hulk as well and loved it, I'll say it was just as good as Iron Man. I'm really glad Marvel is finally getting their **** together to make some good movies not involving Spider-Man.

I actually enjoyed it more than Iron Man.
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Hulk was awesome. I am very glad Marvel is getting back on track after the pitiful Spider-Man 3 and X-men 3 movies.

Maybe i'm just a simple man that is easily amused by explosions,guns and loud noises.
Hulk had a few more loud noises than iron man :)

I saw Hulk and enjoyed it very much.  But I thought Iron Man was much, much better.  For one thing, Liv Tyler's performance was uneven.  There were times where she was spot-on perfect, but others when she was so bad it pulled me out of the movie.  But what I thought was lacking most was the Jekyl/Hyde aspect of Hulk.  The way the movie portrayed it, Hulk was just some involuntary reaction that sends Banner into a blind rage.  But in the books Hulk is a sentient alternate personality, always fighting Banner for control.  In the movie, Hulk seemed indifferent to Banner... Hulk just happened sometimes.  In the comics, Hulk HATES Banner... wants to destroy him and become the dominant personality... and it's only Banner's willpower that keeps him at bay.  Whenever Banner loses focus, Hulk escapes.  The Hulk is Banner's repressed rage, so repressed it became a unique entity.  In the movie it was 100% biological... Banner gets his heart rate up and his blood turns green.  That may have been true to the old TV show (which I don't remember well enough to say), but it doesn't hold true to the comics.  And I think that's what makes the comics interesting.

But I still enjoyed it very much on a popcorn level.  And Ed Norton was fantastic.

I finally saw the Hulk & I was very impressed with it, kinda neat seeing a tribute clip of Bill Bixby from The Courtship of Eddie's Father & of course the The Lonely Man theme that brought a smile.  :)

Antman, Captain America & Thor... Yeah, bring on the Avengers!  8)
