Continuity mistake: During the street chase in Brazil, the time of day changes from night, to perhaps late afternoon/evening, to night again.
The Incredible Hulk (2008)
Starring: Tim Roth, William Hurt, Edward Norton, Liv Tyler
Continuity mistake: When Dr. Ross and Bruce are in the hotel room, Banner empties the purse on the bed and there is some cash inside the wallet. As they are about to leave he picks up the cash, which isn't in the wallet anymore. (01:08:10)
Continuity mistake: In the motel room, Betty gives Bruce a new heart monitor watch, still in its box. In a subsequent shot, the box has disappeared and Bruce is putting the watch on. The cut to Betty and back is too fast for him to have taken the watch out and junked the box. (01:04:10)
Trivia: Paul Soles, who portrays the character Stanley, was the voice of Dr. Bruce Banner for the 1966 cartoon of The Incredible Hulk. The name "Stanley" is itself likely a reference to Hulk co-creator Stan Lee.
Trivia: When General Ross is drinking at the bar, his drink is made up of equal parts of Hennessy, Cognac and Hypnotiq liqueur. The name for this drink is an "Incredible Hulk."
Trivia: Originally, the only line the Hulk was going to have was saying Betty's name. However, Letterier noticed that fans wanted the Hulk to have more lines so he added "Leave me alone" and "Hulk Smash."
Abomination: General! Any last words?
Tony Stark: What if I told you we're putting a team together?
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: Who's "we"?
Bruce Banner: [in poor Portuguese.] Don't make me...hungry. You wouldn't like me when I'm...hungry.
Tough Guy Leader: [in Portuguese.] What the hell he is talking about?
Question: In the alternate opening of this movie, there have been many rumors of Captain America's cameo frozen in the ice as the Hulk smashes it and a big wave of ice shatters. If you look at it very carefully it does seem that it is him. So does anyone know if there has been any confirmation that it is him?
Answer: Yes. In the alternate opening, after Bruce turns into the Hulk and causes the ice to collapse, a huge chunk of ice is broken free from the ground. In this ice is a figure dressed in blue holding a round shield with circular red and white stripes. The best way to see this is waiting until the huge ice wall breaks and then slowly advance frame-by-frame and eventually Captain America and his shield will be seen.
Chosen answer: No, none whatsoever. It's something thrown in by the effects department and that fact that it only exists in a deleted scene makes it a mere curiosity and not any sort of canonical representation of the movie version of the character. With a dedicated Captain America film in production, intended to be released in 2011, they would not have thrown in anything definitive regarding the character into an earlier film, to avoid placing constraints on those making the character's own film. While, yes, Steve Rogers will almost certainly end up frozen in ice at some point, that will be dealt with by his film without worrying about an Easter Egg thrown into a previous movie.
Question: Although some of Bruce Banner's blood falls into one of the soda bottles when he's working in the factory, the movie never explains what happens to that specific bottle. Can we assume that it gets exported to the United States and someone eventually drinks it? Will this tie into the plot for the sequel?
Answer: This is explained in the movie, and it's where Stan Lee's cameo comes in. He is the person who drinks the contaminated soda, triggering a "gamma sickness" incident.

Chosen answer: Neither. Martina was simply a woman who happened to live in the same building and work in the same factory as Bruce. She was however attracted to him.
