While The Incredible Hulk didn't bomb at the box office, it didn't quite manage to outperform the outrageously sucky previous Hulk flick, directed by Ang Lee. This might not be such a big deal, as we pointed out earlier, since movies like Batman Returns have recovered from so-so openings based on word of mouth. My guess is that Incredible Hulk isn't going to get that word of mouth, largely because critics and movie-goers alike have been lukewarm about the flick. But if there's one thing that could have made this movie a smash, it would have been splicing a chunk of the Jekyll and Hyde mythos into its narrative structure. It's not as if Hulk and Hyde haven't met before (see image above), and we've got five good reasons why a Hyde-ier Hulk would have kept us watching. Spoilers ahead.
