Hulk is No Bigger than 15ft and has Purple Shorts

The following was posted by SundownSF on the HulkMovie message boards:
Unless there is a scene no one knows about yet, Eric Bana being naked in this scene is false. I was an extra on the set that took place near the foot of Telegraph hill on the hill corner of Sansome and Vallejo as one of the SF police officers and I can atest that he was wearing a pair of purple stretch material shorts. Believe the shorts looking blue is simply the product of a bad picture.
I can see how the subject should be addressed, him being naked, since he won't be prepared Hulking out the 1st time. About the order this comes in the movie, been told this is or near the ending of the movie. He turns back to Banner once he calms down seeing Betty Ross (J. Connelley).
Being on set was great, got to run up Sansome behind a police car, point my gun at the imaginary Hulk, and look scared doing it for 6 takes. Was so pumped, I never got tired. In another scene, when the Hulk turns back into Banner and is hugged by Betty Ross (Jennifer Connelley, she's so hot), National Guard, SWAT, police (plain clothes and uniformed) get to surround the couple with weapons pointing. Must have done this for 15 takes since different angles were shot. Must have been 3 feet away from them. Also got to see Sam Elliot around the set, nice guy, even took pictures with some extras.

Well again, I mention him not being naked in this scene, which I was told
is the ending, not the entire movie. By then, Banner, as well as the writer
of the script, will have had an excuse for the shorts to stay on him.
Don't know if this would make a difference but I believe he never gets any bigger than 15 feet. That's what the pole with the head silouette stand in said on it. If you figure proportion wise how much smaller he would be, the shorts just might stay on.
He also went on to describe the images that he saw from the Hulk on the set. This was posted on Coming Attractions:
"On Banner being naked, unless there is a scene no one knows about, he never is. I can attest that he was wearing a pair of 'purple' stretch material shorts. Believe the shorts looking blue in the latest picture shown in hulkmovie.com is simply the product of a bad picture. I was no less than 3 feet away from the couple and I'm not color blind.
"I can see how the subject should be addressed though, him being naked, since he won't be prepared Hulking out the 1st time. About the order this scene comes in the movie, been told this is or near the ending of the movie. He turns back to Banner once he calms down seeing Betty Ross (J. Connelly) coming down some steps.
"On the arguments with his variance in size, a pole with a silouette of the Hulk's head had '15 on it. You know for us to know where to point just before actual filming. So if this is at the very least near the ending, he won't get any bigger. Who know's maybe in the next 2...
"On the Hulk's appearance, while waiting for the crew to setup after each series of takes, and we waited around a lot, I noticed a couple of ILM employees. The jackets with ILM in huge blue letters on one guy's back gave them away. Guess people in this business really like showing off what company they work for. One of them was carrying around a print out of what looked to be a rough, computer aided, representation of the Hulk. Think of a print out a regular laser printer would make of someone's artwork on-line. The guy passed by me several times as I kept looking at the print outs he had in his hand. He looked to have a couple of copies probably, for other high ups maybe.
"What I saw basically looked very much like the comic book Hulk that's been surfacing on the Internet lately, with maybe his hair not so messy. Arms were a bit disproportionately large for the body and the shorts looked like speedos on him. I'm pretty sure the shorts in the latest pictures are of stretch material of somekind. Also the face I'm told will incorporate Eric Bana's face. I also heard recently in ET or some other place that Eric Bana's movements will be captured on a computer and translated into the cgi Hulk. I guess for anyone still asking who the Hulk will be, it's Eric Bana. World of computers you know.
