At $263m worldwide, The Incredible Hulk did just f****** fine considering the prior movie probably turned a bunch of people off who would otherwise have given it a shot. Not every first superhero movie needs to be a humongous smash (pardon the pun).
I thought that The Incredible Hulk
movie did not end up doing substantially better financially than Ang Lee's version did in '03. Wasn't that the whole problem?
Looking at Box Office Mojo, it looks like The Incredible Hulk
did barely outperform Hulk
2003: $132 million + $113 foreign = $245 million
2008: $134 million + $128 million = $263 million
