Bruce Banner, a scientist on the run from the U.S. Government, must find a cure for the monster he turns into, whenever he loses his temper.
Louis Leterrier wanted Mark Ruffalo for the role of Bruce Banner, but Marvel insisted on Edward Norton. Ironically, Ruffalo would go on to replace Norton as Banner in future Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross:

When Banner is supposedly in Chiapas, Mexico, it is clearly Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At 00:30:44, an orange garbage can with the logo "Prefeitura do Rio" (Rio's City Hall) is seen behind two seated women.

Stark himself appears in the film's closing scene.
