Everybody loves the Hulk. After all, what’s not to like about a big, green force of pure rage who smashes the hell out of everything in his path?
The character has appeared in four movies since the turn of the millennium – 2003’s Hulk, 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, 2012’s The Avengers and 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron – all of which were part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, apart from the first one with Eric Bana in the lead role.
Both Edward Norton and Mark Ruffalo have portrayed the character in the three MCU movies to date and, collectively, the three actors’ versions of the character have been depicted smashing all kinds of opponents and inanimate objects to pieces.
This article will list the best examples of those scenes. Here are the ten best “Hulk smash” moments in movie history (in chronological order)!
Smashing The Tanks (Hulk)
Although we’re somewhat loath to include anything from this movie (it’s pretty awful), there is a pretty cool scene in 2003’s Hulk in which Eric Bana’s version of the character smashes up a load of tanks.
It comes when he’s on the run and Sam Elliott’s General Ross sends the military after him. The Hulk does things like throw one tank into the distance, tear the top off another and use it to smash what’s left of it, then bends another tank’s gun in such a manner that it is pointing at the driver inside.
The scene was the best depiction of the Hulk’s might in the entire movie – particularly the throwing of the first tank – and really emphasised how invulnerable he was (he took a shell being fired at him like the average human would have taken being hit by a tennis ball).
