    Came across this Video Store Magazine article by way of Movie City News :



    There's more to the article than what I quoted, but there are some minor spoilers as well.

    Nice that they're working on the DVD already - but gimme June 20th already!

    If I recall correctly, doesn't the director have to sign off on the video transfer? The pan and scan would be a completely different transfer, he could refuse to sign off so perhaps there won't even be one! [​IMG]

    Hmm, I wished they'd us a directors cut. Universal reportedly pushed him to redo some scenes to make it more accessible for the summer blockbuster audience.

    The film (I saw 4 short clips) uses what would best be described as a comic book paneling technique. This effect would probably be destroyed on a Pan & Scan transfer.

    It is a very cool effect that I think the Hulk geeks (me) will love.

    Yes! No pan-and-scan version! Actually I'll believe it when I see it since Universal is known for putting out way too many versions of one film on release day. I've always wondered why the directors themselves don't put a stop to this.

    Since im 1 of the biggest hulk fans, i think they should include this on the dvd, remember on the spiderman dvd , they had the spiderman comic book archives ? I would really appreciate it and enjoy it if universal did something similar on the hulk dvd. [​IMG]

    Glad to hear Ang's not a big fan of the ol' pan & scan.

    It'll be interesting to see the final specs of the disc.

    Whoops, looks like I made a duplicate thread. Maybe they'll make a super-special edition in widescreen and a barebones pan and scan version...

    This movie looks like it would be pan and scan hell anyway...so Ang gets a thumb up on this decision. That is the way he shot the film, it would be the same if it was unrated, that was the way it was meant to be, it is the way it should be presented.

    There is going to be a pan and scan version for the VHS release even if Ang doesn't help with it, so you can probably expect a dual release, I can't imagine a big movie like this coming out only in widescreen.

    We need more directors putting their foot down.
    Before, the DVD release!
    Not just complaining about how the studio butchered their film, after the video release.

    Oh, and I finally figured out why Ang(er) got to direct The Hulk! [​IMG]
