  • Trivia

    • Alias: David Banion

    • Just before Banner leaves the lab to go down to the lobby in the second transformation sequence, he gets a coffee, walks to the window, and peeks through the shutters.

      Any explanation as to why he does this?

    • In Banner's final transformation sequence at the abandoned factory, you can see the movie crew reflected in the car door as Josh Lambert pulls the car into gear.

    • The combined strength of the Hulk and Thor couldn't prevent a helicopter from taking off. But in the 1980 episode "The Lottery," the Hulk successfully grounded a helicopter without any assistance.

  • Quotes

    • David: (to Donald Blake) For two years now, two years, this change of mine hasn't occured, and you know why? Because I've stayed away from people like you.

  • Notes

    • This is the only Hulk reunion TV-movie to feature Jack McGee (Jack Colvin).

    • Besides being the first come-back TV Movie from the original series, this film also served as a possible pilot for a potential new series revolving around Thor. (The series was never made.)
