If it wasn’t for the return and subsequent recurring appearances of William Damage’s Thaddeus Ross, then you would take away The Incredible Hulk from the Marvel Cinematic Universe totally and it wouldn’t change a single factor. Although the film hit theaters simply six weeks after Iron Man had kicked off the franchise, so-so evaluations and middling field workplace didn’t ship the hit everybody was anticipating.

Common maintain the rights to any solo outings, which is the explanation why Mark Ruffalo has remained a supporting participant ever since he changed Edward Norton within the position, and the MCU would reasonably faux that it by no means existed given how not one of the occasions seen in Louis Leterrier’s blockbuster have influenced proceedings within the slightest.

It did function a shoehorned Tony Stark cameo in the course of the credit to proceed teasing {that a} a lot greater universe was within the means of being unveiled, however for probably the most half it stays probably the most inconsequential installment that the MCU will seemingly ever see. Nonetheless, The Incredible Hulk did function a really fleeting reference to Wolverine, though the character was firmly within the possession of Fox on the time.

In addition to explaining that the Hulk and Abomination are the outcomes of failed makes an attempt to duplicate the Tremendous Soldier formulation that created Captain America, the identify Dr. Reinstein will be glimpsed on the canister containing the serum. Within the comedian books, Reinstein was an alias of Dr. Abraham Erskine, who was pivotal in Steve Rogers’ transformation from skinny child to star-spangled superhero.

The identical shot additionally reveals that the mission is known as ‘Weapon Plus’, and in Marvel Comics the clandestine program is immediately tied to the origins of  Wolverine, with the tenth iteration designated Weapon X. As ScreenRant explains:

When Thunderbolt Ross’s (William Damage) motivations to seize the Hulk meet Emil Blonsky’s (Tim Roth) starvation for energy, the formidable normal offers the soldier with a modified model of the Tremendous Serum formulation. A temporary take a look at the canister reveals the small print of its fabrication, which embody Stark Industries because the producer and Dr. Reinstein because the developer. “Josef Reinstein” is the alias of Dr. Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci), the scientist who created the unrepeatable Tremendous Soldier Serum in Captain America: The First Avenger. A extra stealthy element, nevertheless, is that the identify of this system is labeled “Weapons Plus”, which hints on the clandestine program that gave Wolverine his iconic Adamantium skeletal coating.

Some very minor Easter Eggs, certain, however nonetheless a neat little connection that tied the X-Males to the MCU over a decade earlier than the studio formally acquired the rights.
