The Death of the Incredible Hulk is a 1990 made-for-television film, the last of three revival TV movies from the 19781982 television show The Incredible Hulk. Bill Bixby reprises his role as Dr. David Bruce Banner and Lou Ferrigno returns to play the Hulk. Prior to Bill Bixby's death in 1993, there was talk of another Incredible Hulk television movie which would resurrect the character.[1][2][3] [4]

David Banner masquerades as David Bellamy, a mentally-challenged janitor, in order to gain access to a scientific research facility. He has determined that the studies of one of the scientists there, Dr. Ronald Pratt (Philip Sterling), may hold the key to curing his gamma-induced condition that, in times of stress, turns him into a superhuman green creature known as the Hulk. Pratt takes a liking to the man he sees only as a building custodian. One night after making a transaction at the back, David is trapped by street thieves and is beaten and robbed. The stress of his injuries induces another transformation. The Hulk makes short work of the criminals but attracts the attention of authorities. The creature escapes by going through the building wall for wall. The next day, bypassing security, Banner enters Pratt's laboratory, examines the formula on his blackboard, making corrections and filling in gaps. At the same time, a beautiful Russian spy named Jasmin (Elizabeth Ward), thinking she has completed her last act of espionage, is approached again by former superior Kasha for one last job: infiltrate Pratt's lab and steal the files on his experiments. Refusing, Kasha blackmails Jasmin with her sister Bella's life. Jasmin then disguises herself as a club hopper and succeeds in getting a fingerprint from one of the security guards. After Pratt catches David in the act, Banner reveals his true identity and goes over the events that led to his self-experimentation that resulted in the Hulk. He also notes that his condition also dives into Pratt's own research on a human's capacity to heal, for in Hulk form David's accelerated metabolism allows any wound to close in seconds, leaving him with hardly a scar. Pratt believes he can cure David, but he needs to first study the creature. Over the course of a week, both scientists, with the help of Pratt's wife, Amy, construct a force field cage and sensors to track Banner's vitals. On the night of the observation, David is rigged with a tranquilizer to sedate him once the readings have been recorded. Banner shocks himself with an electrical rod and Hulks-out. The energy cage holds the creature back until Pratt has his readings and Amy activates the tranquilizer. Banner reverts to normal and Pratt and Amy photograph the closing puncture wound from the tranquilizer. Banner later watches the video of his transformation claiming it is the first time he has seen the Hulk and fails to see any humanity in him despite Amy's beliefs. The next day, the board announces to Pratt that they are pulling his funding for his lack of results, which forces him to move up his proposed cure for David.

This third post-Hulk-series telefilm was initially announced to feature the Marvel Comics character She-Hulk, just as the previous two had featured Thor and Daredevil. As of early July 1989, it was still firmly expected to do so, and to air that autumn, with Iron Man under consideration for a follow-up.[5]

Planned sequel
Despite the Hulk's death in the 1990 film, the movie's makers had intended from the start for him to return in The Revenge of the Incredible Hulk, in which he would be revived in a state in which the Hulk had Banner's mind.[1] As of July 10, 1990, a script was being written.[5] However, the project was canceled when Bill Bixby's health declined. He died of cancer in November 1993.
