The Hulk, by Michael France - 2nd Draft
This very well written, with some good characterization and insane action scenes. I'm not overly fond of Betty not being Ross' daughter here, and I could really do without the fast food bit where Bruce Banner turns into Leo Getz for five pages, but other than that this is a good one.
The Michael France script is The Hulk movie I've always wanted to see. Hensleigh's take was just weird.Die Hard With A Vengeance it was not.

France's Fantastic Four script and his first draft of Punisher are excellent as well. And the irony is that Hensleigh ended up rewriting and directing his Punisher script. XD

Weirdly, I finally saw Venom just the other day, and the whole private space travel angle grafted onto a generic superhero movie reminded me a lot of Hensleigh's Hulk script.

His Punisher and Fantastic Four scripts were awesome indeed.Yeah Venom has a habit of reminding me of the weirdest stuff.I was getting more than a few flashbacks to the Spawn movie.

I agree, France's first draft of Punisher was awesome, and while i like 2004 film, i would rather prefer if this version was made instead. His second draft was pretty good, but to me, not as good as first one.

The Incredible Hulk, by David Hayter
This wasn't terrible, exactly, It has some decent moments like the Hulk out in the interrogation room, but most of it reads like a watered down version of France's draft. This is really obvious when the helicopter scene is repeated almost word for word, but getting shoved into the late second/early third act hurts it a lot. Sterns' motivations and powers are vastly less interesting here, and a lot of the potential with that character is squandered. And Creel is a real downgrade, going from a legitimate threat to a whiny little fratboy bitch.
