Trivia: For the 70's TV show, the main character was named David Banner, as Bruce was thought to be too feminine for a leading male's name, but in this movie version, Bruce's father is called David Banner.

Trivia: Originally, the 2008 Marvel Cinematic Universe film "The Incredible Hulk" was written as a direct sequel to this film, but it was ultimately retooled to be a stand-alone reboot. This explains some interesting connections the two films share, not the least of which being that this film ends with Bruce in hiding in South America, while "The Incredible Hulk" opens with Bruce hiding out in Brazil and being discovered. And interestingly enough, if you ignore the prologue sequence and Iron Man cameo at the end of "The Incredible Hulk", they still actually fit together quite well.
