Here’s the newest Incredible Hulk trailer, which looks almost exactly like the second Incredible Hulk trailer, but I’m posting it because it’s been like 24 hours since I’ve run a comic movie trailer, and I needed my sweet, sweet fix. Actually, this one shows the Hulk clap?not the effect, just him clapping?which excited me in an obviously nerdy way. Between that and the cars-as-boxing-gloves, it’s enough to imply there might actually be some action in this movie.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
