Hulk Poster Rips Off Spider-Man Comic Cover

Marvel and Universal have released the first official poster for Ed Norton's auteur version of The Incredible Hulk, and the most obvious thing for comic fans is how obvious it all seems. Sure, the picture of Norton as Bruce Banner, walking away solemnly in his denims evokes the old TV show, but there's a much more obvious swipe going on, as well... See the poster, and its source material, under the jump.

The poster is - presumably intentionally - a recreation of one of the most famous Marvel covers ever: Amazing Spider-Man #50 (If it looks familiar to those of you who've never seen the cover before, it was also recreated in the movie Spider-Man 2). Why try and recreate a Spider-Man cover for a Hulk movie poster? Who knows - Maybe Ed Norton wanted the world to know that he really is a geek, after all...
