The Incredible Hulk (2008) - Gary Bainbridge joins Tim Worthington for a chat about Bruce Banner's struggle to control the raging beast that lives inside us all by going for some pizza in It's Good, Except It Sucks - a movie by movie - and television series by television series - hurtle through the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It’s Good, Except It Sucks is a movie by movie – and television series by television series – hurtle through the Marvel Cinematic Universe, hosted by Tim Worthington with a series of superpowered guests.

This time it’s The Incredible Hulk from 2008, and joining Tim to talk about Bruce Banner’s struggle to control the raging beast that lives inside us all by going for some pizza is writer Gary Bainbridge. What will they find to say about Edward Norton favouring Jim Wilson over Rick Jones, the reasons behind crediting a cast member as ‘Computer Nerd’, and the ridiculously complicated conceit of making a film in which the title character does not want to appear as the title character, and what does any of this have to do with Omar from The Wire‘s place in Marvel continuity? Get listening and find out!
