Synopsis: Bruce Banner, a brilliant scientist with a cloudy past about his family, is involved in an accident in his laboratory causing him to become exposed to gamma radiation and Nanomeds (A tiny life-form that is supposed to heal wounds but has killed everything with which they have made contact). Confused and curious about his survival, Banner discovers that since the accident, whenever he becomes angry he transforms into a giant green monster destroying everything in sight in an act of fury. Bruce's mysterious past and the answer to why the radiation had this effect becomes revealed to him as his Birth Father David Banner intervenes with hopes to continue experimenting on him.

[Suspenseful instrumental music]

[Music swells]

[Fast-paced, tense instrumental music]

There's simply no way to shield

against every weaponized agent.

But l can make

super-immune systems...

by strengthening

the human cellular response.

Banner, l know where you're going.

But manipulating the immune system

is dangerous and stupid.

The President's science advisors

made it absolutely clear.

No human subjects.

David, l have wonderful news.

l'm gonna have a baby.

[Edith groaning]

[Edith yelling]

[Dramatic instrumental music]

[Tense instrumental music]

[Baby crying]

[Soothing female vocals]

[Baby babbling]

What's it gonna be? Look at that.

Want the dinosaur? Come on,

let's have a little fight. Come on.

You don't scare me.

[Bruce growling]

That's a delicious eyeball.

You're big and green and scary.

I'll run away.

[Tense instrumental music]

[Women chatting]

Bruce, you're hurt.

Jack hit him with the stick,

but Bruce wouldn't hit him back.

He just stood there, shaking.

lt's okay.

[Gentle instrumental music]

Strange he didn't make a peep.

Any other kid

would've wailed his head off.

That's Bruce. He's like that.

He's just so bottled up.

The samples we found in your lab,

they were human blood.

You've ignored protocol.

You had no right

snooping around in my lab.

-That's my business.

-Wrong, Banner.

lt's government business

and you're off the project.

[Fast-paced instrumental music]

Attention, all personnel!

Fail-safe has been initiated.

Gamma decontamination

will occur in 30 minutes.

Evacuate immediately. l repeat...

evacuate immediately!

[Siren wailing]


-David, what's going on?

-l gotta talk to you, Edith.

Bruce, stay here.

What are you doing?

[Soft, tense instrumental music]




[Edith and Banner arguing]

David, please stop it! No!

[Edith and Banner yelling]

Bruce, wake up, son.

Bruce. Bruce.

Another nightmare?

l don't know. l don't remember.

Hi, Mom.

Already off to college.

-l'm gonna miss you terribly.

-l'll miss you, too.

Please, come here.

Look at you.

Soon to be a great scientist.

l guess. l mean, who knows?

l do.

There's something inside you

so special.

Some kind of greatness, I'm sure.

Someday you're gonna...

share it with the whole world.

Berkeley Nuclear

Biotechnology lnstitute

As far as l'm concerned,

security ought to be....

Good morning, Dr. Krenzler.

Security ought to be beefed up

a lot more.

ln a place like this,

you can't be too careful.


Big day. Did you sleep?

l didn't sleep.

-l slept okay. ls Betty here?

-She's around.

l really got to say, seeing you

in that styling headwear....

You implying something

about my helmet?

You look like a massive nerd,

even around other scientists.

Can I just ask?

Were you wearing the helmet

while she dumped you?

See, it protects

my very important brain, Harper.

Go prep the samples.

Hey, l found you.

Betty, hey!

-l hate them.

-l just got here. Who do we hate?

The review board. We have to make

a presentation on Tuesday.

And you're gonna make it with me.

-You think l should?

-Yeah, you're great with that stuff.

You start talking about

microbes and nanomeds...

you sound almost passionate.

Sorry. That was rude.

Look, nobody expects this

to be easy...

us working together

after being so close.

We were close?

lf l could be more...

whatever, you know. l'm just....

Don't. lt's not your fault, really.

You're just a byproduct

of my inexplicable obsession...

with emotionally distant men.

l'll get over us.

Good for you.

Anyway, l'm just really stressed

about this review.

lf we don't get impressive results,

we'll have a hard sell on Tuesday.

Then let's go be impressive.


-Ready when you are.

-Let's hit it.


Are we passing inspection?

Safeties all going green.

Countdown started.

Nanomeds released.

Four seconds.

Okay. Nanomeds fully dispersed.

Okay. Let's hit Freddie

with the gamma radiation.

[Tense instrumental music]

[Machine whirring]

Gamma exposure.

Nanomeds now active.

Nanomeds replicating cells

on border.

lt's working.

Cell copy-to-disassemble ratio

holding within 1%.

lmbalanced nanomed activity.

You want to tell the review board

that we've developed...

a brand-new method

for exploding frogs?

Yeah. l think maybe

there's a market for it.

What if there's a plague?

What have you had, Betty,

like one beer?

l'm just saying, you know,

frogs start falling from the sky...

who do they come to?

We'd be world-renowned.

Make any parent proud.

l bet they would be.

They actually did want me

to be a scientist.

l mean your birth parents.

l guess we'll never know.

l don't understand why you don't

want to find out about them.

They're dead. They died before

l could remember anything, any....

Why do you always come back to this?

l don't know.

l guess l figure there's more to you

than you like to show.

l guess there couldn't be any less.

Right. So now we come full circle

back to that.

Nice work, Betty.

[Soft instrumental music]





-What happened to your uniform?

-l switched over.

l'm still working

with your father...

but the military's subcontracting
