Slow day in JG’ville but I did stumble upon a fun interview with Stan (THE man) Lee and The Tomorrow Show on cinemablend.com. The interview is on the long side but worth it as Stan shares some knowledge about our favorite Jade Giant. At the 9:00 mark they talk about Hulk taking on the Thing and Stan gives a definitive (we already knew this) answer when asked who would win this classic battle.
“Oh, The Hulk would win. The Thing is faster and smarter, so he would probably find a way to turn it into a draw or save himself. He’d trap or trick the Hulk. But, in a fair fight, there’s no way the Hulk [would lose]. He’d win.”
I’m not sure that I agree with the Thing being faster but I’ll take Stan’s definitive answer. I know this is not shocking news, but hearing it from Stan is really fun. The interview also includes Stan talking about DC, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and a host of other topics that Stan weighs in on. Enjoy!
