The next amazing behind the scenes video Steve Johnson has released via his youtube page Steve Johnson FX contains footage of the never-used real-life robot Hulk he (and his team) built for the 2003 Ang Lee film Hulk. What were they thinking? This thing is glorious, watch the bicep expand:

We can't see what Johnson will release next (he's worked on tons of movies in his 30-year career, from The Abyss to Ghostbusters). Here's the little YouTube intro, in case you want some more background information about the artist, and why he's decided to start spilling these Hollywood secrets.

In other Incredible Hulk news, What's On the Media claims to have found some concept art floating around on the internet that may show how the Hulk will look in The Avengers.
