We’re now back in the ‘ 90s in our video series on the unknown and forgotten Marvel movies of the past: Death of the Uncanny Hulk is a 1990 TV movie that starred Bill Bixby as David (not David ) for the last time Bruce!) Banner and Lou Ferrigno appeared as the Hulk.
But unlike its predecessors » The Return of the Uncanny Hulk » (1988) and » The Uncanny Hulk Trial » (1989), YouTube host and Marvel expert Sebastian is far less impressed this time. «The Death of the Creepy Hulk» is unfortunately not a successful conclusion to the otherwise very fun TV film trilogy.
The plot of «The Death of the Uncanny Hulk»
As the title suggests, Death of the Uncanny Hulk revolves around David Banner finally wanting to get rid of his Rage Monster alter ego. That’s why he sneaks into a research laboratory disguised as a janitor in order to secretly develop a cure there (» Good Will Hunting » sends his regards). For this he leads the work of the scientist Dr. Pratt ( Philip Sterling ) continued.

At the same time, a Russian spy named Jasmin ( Elizabeth Gracen ) is attached to Dr. Pratt’s research is interesting because her clients want to use it to breed their own super soldiers. When Jasmine and Banner/Hulk finally meet, they fall in love and work together from then on…
That was better in Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron
A romance between Banner/Hulk and Black Widow (who is never named that in The Death of the Uncanny Hulk but is obviously inspired by it)? You know that from the MCU too! In Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron , however, the relationship between the two characters is far more believable and touching than it is here.
The rest of the story of “The Death of the Creepy Hulk” is just as dull, lame and superficial as the love story between Banner and Jasmine, which a few nice Hulk scenes don’t change either – the green rage monster runs through walls here, for example, and stops huge shovel excavators.
