David enters a small deserted town that has been affected by bacteria. Now he must find an antidote for those who have been exposed to the plague--including himself.

But, there were three TV movies that followed where the story continued. All three were released on DVD in the last several weeks.

Was the helicopter death part of the series or just a tv movie?

According to the website included in this post, the last episode in season 5 was just a regular one. Looks like they didn't know they were going to be cancelled.

Spoiler:
From: http://www.tvtome.com/tvtome/servlet...50/epid-30290/
Contrary to popular belief, this was not intended to be the finale to the Hulk's live-action TV saga. A follow-up entitled "The Rebirth of the Incredible Hulk" (aka "Revenge of the Incredible Hulk") was planned, but Bill Bixby's death in 1993 prevented it from being filmed.

Benedict, the idea that the Hulk tv movies would continue past The Death of the Hulk was confirmed by Marvel's Encyclopedia on the Hulk.

Do you know what the plot of the new movie would have been?

There were 2 ideas kicked around for the fourth HULK TV movie. One was a story where Banner's intelligence would remain after he Hulked out; the other was a She-Hulk movie in which Banner would appear.

He never did find that one-armed man.

Actually, he fell from a small jet just as it exploded in mid-air, not from a helicopter.


Also, while it is true a fourth TV movie was originally planned, the plans were scraped due to the untimely death of Bill Bixby.

Would have been interesting to see the Hulk with Banner's intelligence.

Where did you learn about that? Website? Curious to read more about it.

Did they explain how they would have brought him back?

I found this in the FAQ's on http://www.incrediblehulktvseries.com/


"What Hulk Stories Never Materialized?

According to John Kujawski, there was a two hour episode of The Incredible Hulk which was never aired. The episode was apparently discussed in an issue of Starlog magazine which involved David Banner crashing on an island with a bunch of young girls, in a "Lord of the Flies" type adventure. This, apparently was a miscommunication however. According to Ken Johnson himself, no such story was ever filmed.

As mentioned earlier, Johnson wanted to do a two hour finale in which David was tried for the murder of Elaina Marks. and the destruction he caused as the creature. This would have resolved everything with Jack McGee, but unfortunately a finale was never filmed.

Lou Ferrigno had also hoped to do a show in which the creature could learn to speak, by being taught by another character. "

I never read Hulk comics, but he appears this way in my Marvel vs DC book, so I assume he was like this in the comics for a time.

As a Hulk comic reader: I can say Hulk has been all over the map when it comes to the intelligence question.

And, yes, there was a point where he had Banner's intelligence. (I believe he was a bouncer, of sorts, in Vegas----wacky, but true)

Ken Johnson's idea for a trial of the Hulk is a good idea. Too bad they did a less interesting story and already used that title on a previous tv movie - The Trial of the Incredble Hulk.

They could easily have brought him back. If you watch "Death", you'll find some dialog that set it up quite nicely. No little fall is going to do in the Hulk...

Steve - do you know of the dialogue or do you just assume it's there?

Kube, you obviously haven't seen the flick.

If you watch the "Death" movie, there is a whole conversation between Banner and another doctor about the Hulk's ability to heal bullet wounds and broken bones; and how he's not sure the creature could ever die. He says something like "Maybe, just MAYBE, if the damage was bad enough..."

A most obvious set up for what was to come.

Steve, I have seen the movie not just in years. I asked for the dialogue because I was curious about how they would bring him back. However, I don't think that dialogue really explains anything about how he would come back.

In Star Trek 2 - Spock tells McKoy to "remember". That's a set up. Saying he might be able to be killed isn't really one.

What do you want them to say......"if you ever fall out of a helicopter, don't worry because it is likely your bones would heal and you won't die?"

I really don't see how it could have been more obvious of a set up....

I think Death of Incredible Hulk was a good ending fitting of the tragic character of Banner. His final line of the movie: "I am free," right before he dies, really is powerful.

Yeah, it did bring a tear to my eye. Especially when the Hulk is falling in slow motion as the soft, sad Hulk music is playing.

Honk!

I thought the death was very well done and sincere. It didn't seem like a device to set up another film. I thought it was a poignant and well earned moment.

Steve - your unwarranted sarcasm asside, I still don't think that line points to setting up his return. I think it sets up his death. But we disagree. Ok. No big deal.
