'Incredible Hulk' Director Says Movie's Final Battle To Be 26 Minutes Long

The more we hear about this summer's 'The Incredible Hulk', the more it sounds like the movie will blow away Ang Lee's 2003 take on the superhero.

Last week, we had the first full trailer for the movie and speaking with 'Empire' magazine, Director Louis Leterrier says the effects we saw on the trailer aren't even completely finished just yet: “No shots are finished yet. That’s why we took so long to release the teaser, because unlike the other movies coming out this summer, our main character relies on so much calculation and technique. None of the shots in this trailer are finished shots, but I think it’s decent enough and it shows the audience what we’re going for."

"There’s a different version of the teaser that will only be shown in movie theatres where you see a close-up of the Hulk's face as he comes out of the darkness. A full close-up, like full-screen. And until we had that shot right I didn’t want to release it."

But what probably has us most excited is Leterrier comment to the mag that the final battle between Hulk and the Abomination won't just be your quick five minute, one punch knockout: "Our final battle – unlike a normal movie where the final fight scene is six minutes long, ours is 26 minutes long!"

"So you get 26 minutes of two monsters pummelling each other through New York City, jumping up and down, ripping helicopters from the sky and stuff. You know, lots of green blood on the street, splashed all around. So it's pretty cool. Some humans try to get out of the way but no, they can't there’s a little bit of collateral damage. There’s a bit of a bodycount. Not on account of the Hulk, the Hulk's a saviour, but the Abomination is ruthless."
