David Duchovny Almost Played the MCU’s Incredible Hulk

November 21, 2021

Considering his popularity and importance to the MCU, it is still hard to believe that Mark Ruffalo was not the first actor to portray the Hulk in the Infinity Saga, with Ed Norton having played the not-so-jolly green giant first in 2008’s second MCU film, The Incredible Hulk. Of course while Norton dipped out after just the one movie, making way for arguably the best iteration of Bruce Banner ever put on screen, it seems that there was another name in the early running to play the good doctor even before Norton and that was The X-Files star David Duchovny.
