One Brutal Scene of Edward Norton's Hulk That Makes Him Way … – FandomWire

Published

on







You are here:


The Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps its movies PG-13 for a reason. Kids as well as adults enjoy these superhero movies but the MCU has broken the rule several times. Edward Norton portrayed the character of Hulk in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk quite more brutally than Mark Ruffalo.
Talking about the movie that wasn’t much of a success, fans were reminded of what the early MCU used to look like. In a brutal scene in the movie, people around the world were quit shocked when Edward Norton’s Hulk kicks Tim Roth’s Abomination into a tree with a little blood splattering on-screen!
Admittedly, the MCU hadn’t fully established itself as a cinematic universe when The Incredible Hulk was released back in 2008 the Hulk was still a part of the Marvel comics. Edward Norton, from the Fight Club fame, decided to join in for the ride by portraying the role of Bruce Banner in the movie.

Although the movie did not meet people’s expectations, the film had its fair share of iconic scenes and clips. One of the notable scenes was the Hulk fighting against Tim Roth’s Emil Blonsky. Being a fearless soldier tasked with killing Bruce Banner, Tim Roth had an exceptional fight scene with the Hulk.
After the fight is over, Blonsky walks up to Norton in his Hulk form and asks “Is that it? Is that all you got?”. This results in the Hulk getting angrier and kicking Blonsky so hard that he flies a few feet away. The scene depicts Blonsky hitting the ground and rolling towards a tree stump. With a hard thud, the character lands face-first into the tree stump and his body sinks to the ground.
Although the focus is on General Ross during that scene, the out-of-focus face of Blonsky shows quite a significant amount of bleeding. The scene is intense and terrifying at the same time which showcased the fact that Edward Norton’s Hulk was indeed more devastating and chaotic compared to Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk in the MCU.

It could have been a very likely possibility that the scene mentioned above was written by Edward Norton himself. According to film trivia, Tim Roth (who got kicked in the face) stated that Norton used to re-write his scenes every day while on the sets of The Incredible Hulk.
The Fight Club actor and Liv Tyler also used to sit down every day and talk for hours before filming would start. As per the trivia, the duo would discuss their character’s lives especially before Bruce Banner became the Hulk which helped with the bonding between them. The Incredible Hulk received a rating of 6.6/10 on IMDB and 67% on Rotten Tomatoes and wasn’t much of a success. The 2008 film is available to stream on Disney+.

Neighbors Challenge Lake Club as Pickleball Fight Heats Up; P&Z … – Good Morning Wilton

Good Morning Wilton
On Monday, Nov. 27, the Lake Club returned to the Planning and Zoning Commission nearly seven months after a public hearing brought attention to the increasingly tense relationship between the Club and its residential neighbors — many of whom are themselves active members.
Located at 175 Thayer Pond Rd., the Lake Club operates with a special permit that allows private membership recreation clubs to be located within a residential neighborhood, provided that they do not impact the surrounding area more than a typical residential development would. Earlier this year, the Club applied to convert one of its existing tennis courts into four dedicated pickleball courts, which will include changing the surface material to the hard-court paving typical for the sport.
Pickleball has grown enormously in popularity in recent years and is now the fastest growing sport in America. In June, The New York Times published a story on rising noise concerns about the sport, due to the particularly high-pitched “popping” sound it produces.

Back in May, the Commission asked for further sound analysis and challenged the Club about why it had failed to better communicate with neighbors ahead of submitting the application. Returning to the Commission with a resubmitted application, the Lake Club offered two new concessions in light of neighbor concerns, presented by attorney Casey Healy:

  • 12-ft fencing with acoustical panels will be installed on two of the four sides of the proposed courts.
  • Pickleball play would be restricted to “daylight hours” or no longer than 8:00 am to 8:30 pm, depending on the season. Attorney Kathleen Royle, also representing the Lake Club, confirmed that the courts do not have lights.  

Healy reiterated that the estimated sound impact of pickleball on neighboring properties complies Wilton’s noise regulations. However, this finding and the concessions seemed to do little to convince either neighbors or the Commissioners that the Lake Club was making a serious attempt to respond to sound concerns.
Commissioner Chris Pagliaro called the offer ‘cold,’ and said, “After all this time, we basically got a plan that says we’ll put a fence and acoustical panels on two of the walls. It doesn’t feel like the Club is trying to be particularly neighborly, it feels like you’re just trying to check a box.”
A group of nine neighbors, many of whom testified back in May, returned to speak out against the project once again, this time bringing an attorney and an independent sound analysis to back up their case.  
The informal coalition made several claims objecting to the application and in some cases, asserting that regardless of pickleball, the Lake Club is already out of compliance with its existing permit:

  • Attorney Wilson Carroll, representing resident Ed Rowley, said that “pickleball is fundamentally incompatible with residential neighborhoods,” and argued that the Lake Club’s activity levels are already in excess of permitted residential uses.
  • Ed Rowley himself presented a powerpoint on the unique sound qualities of pickleball and widespread community objection to the sport, which is excerpted below.
  • Greg Maroney explained that he had indeed been bothered by the sound of the two pickleball tournaments held over the summer, in response to claims by Healy that the Club never received noise complaints in the past. “Am I just supposed to complain every time something annoys me?” Maroney asked. “To who — the police? That’s not a neighborhood. That’s not what I want to do.”
  • Several neighbors testified that they had never been contacted by the Lake Club about the pickleball court proposal.
  • In addition to the topic of pickleball, neighbors alleged an ongoing issue of noise creep in recent years, citing early morning leaf-blowing and late-night parties featuring DJs and outdoor movie screenings in particular.

The Commission agreed to continue the hearing and add it to the agenda for the Dec. 11 meeting. Healy said that the sound consultant representing the Lake Club would be available to answers questions from the Commission and neighbors at that time.

Remaining Master Plan Regulations (and More) Approved

Elsewhere that evening, the new zoning overlays for Danbury Rd. near Wilton Center passed unanimously following a public hearing in which only one member of the public requested to speak. Kelly Morron asked for clarification on whether St. Mathew’s Cemetery falls within the East overlay zone, which it does.
The new overlays will allow development up to three stories on the east side of Danbury Rd. in the area south of Wilton Center, and up to four stories on the west. More detail on the areas affected can be found in GMW’s past coverage. With the addition of these two new overlays, there are now 11 sets of zoning rules operating in the 0.68 square mile area designated as Greater Wilton Center.
Chair Rick Tomasetti, who also chaired the subcommittee that spearheaded the master plan and resulting zoning regulation changes, recused himself from the vote and did not participate in the Nov. 27 meeting. Vice Chair Melissa-Jean Rotini chaired the meeting in his absence.
The Commission also voted to approve three items that appeared in the Communications/Discussion section of the agenda, a move that seemed unusual to Rotini, who asked Town Planner Michael Wrinn for clarification that a vote could be held “from this place in the agenda.” He confirmed that it could, and so the Commission went on to unanimously approve the following:

  • A zoning text amendment and special permit allowing ASML employees working at the 77 Danbury Rd. facility to use overflow parking at the company’s 20 Westport Rd. property; and
  • A special permit approving a three-season patio at Cactus Rose restaurant in Wilton Center.

Looking Ahead

New zoning regulations on childcare facilities and electric vehicle charging stations are also in the works, in light of recent state requirements.
The next meeting of the Planning & Zoning Commission is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 11. This will also be the first meeting of the new Commission, which will now include Commissioner-elect Anthony Cenatiempo. He replaces Commissioner Matthew Murphy, who is stepping down. The Commissioners thanked Murphy for his service to the town before concluding the meeting.

Tiger women ready for ACC Challenge – Rivals.com – Missouri

Published

on





Mizzou women’s basketball is halfway through its non-conference schedule and sits at 5-2 before its matchup with Virginia. The Tigers will take on the Cavaliers in Charlottesville Thursday afternoon at 4:00 in the ACC/SEC Challenge. Virginia enters the matchup with a 4-2 record and has losses to #25 Oklahoma and #7 LSU.
Mizzou is coming off a loss in the Daytona Beach Classic to Kent State and looks to gain its first road win of the season. The Tigers’ first road game resulted in a loss earlier this season to SLU.
“Disappointed in our trip to Florida, it just didn’t feel like our offense,” head coach Robin Pingeton said. “We’ve got four players averaging double figures, but our offense didn’t travel with us. You’ve got to be really strong on the defensive end, especially on the road. I thought our transition defense has definitely made some strides, really pleased where that is, I like where that’s trending”.

Heading into this game Mizzou is averaging 80.6 points per game and is being led by Hayley Frank with 17.9 points per game. To this point in the season Mizzou is shooting 47% as a team from the field and 39% from behind the arc. Defensively the Tigers are allowing just 68.1 points per game.
Pingeton spoke highly of the Cavaliers ahead of the matchup on Thursday: “Virginia is really talented. They’ve got good size, good athleticism, and a good balance in their inside-out game”.
Virginia currently averages 17 offensive rebounds a game and is limiting opponents to scoring 61.5 points per game. Pingeton believes the way the Tigers have to fight this is with more grit on the defensive end and by taking these matchups personally.
“I think we take a lot of pride in our offense, and we’ve got to get to that point where defensively we’re really taking it personal,” she said. “We have to be finding ways to be gritty in our rotations and putting out fires for each other and it comes down to not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight the dog. We’ve got to have a mind shift, our mentality is just got to be a little bit grittier on that defensive end”.
Mizzou must get better every week as the season goes on, Pingeton believes. The Tigers expect this game to be a battle, but they will not do anything different than what they are capable of according to Pingeton.
“It’s just continuing to do what we do and improve in the areas that we need to improve on. It’s these days in practice that lead up to Virginia, that we’ve created better habits and awareness and a sense of urgency. In regards to our rotations, be more disruptive. To our attention to detail, getting a body and making sure we’re getting somebody boxed out. Low man always wins on the boards. It’s some of those kinds of things that we have to continue to be mindful of in practice”.
Thursday’s game will be televised by the ACC Network.
