I've noticed that in the recent Hulk movies his size varies from movie to movie. I've heard, but don't know for a fact that the size of the Hulk seemed to change during the 2003 Eric Bana Hulk movie.

In the Ed Norton version he seems to be 2-3 stories tall. But in the more recent Avengers movie I'd say he was more like 2-3 meters. I can see why he is made smaller in this movie, since he was going to go toe-to-toe with Thor.

So, is there a size that is ever mentioned in the comics? Or do the comics leave room for his size to change to fit the situation?

  • He wasn't 2-3 stories tall. In the scene where he jumps out of the covered bridge at the school, they're using a low angle looking up from the ground right at his feet. If he was 2-3 stories tall, his head would have been scraping the ceiling of the soda plant in Brazil. He was probably around 7'6" - 8' tall in The Incredible Hulk.

  • I remember there being a good shot of him staring down Blonsky right before he front snap kicks him into a tree and he looks to be about a foot taller than Tim Roth so I'd guess he was probably 7'

  • @krillgar,I have not seen the movie for a couple of years. But you are correct it was a camera angle thing.

1 Answer 1


According to marvel.com here are the various heights:

5' 9½" (Banner);
6'6" (gray Hulk);
7' – 8' (green/savageHulk);
7'6" (green/Professor Hulk)

Also, it is known that the madder Bruce gets, the stronger the Hulk gets. If I'm not mistaken, that affects the size as well. So, the madder Bruce is, the bigger the Hulk is.

    Barely tall enough to stare into Yao Ming's eyes... Hate to admit it, but I'm kind of disappointed.

  • This is really what I was hoping for, thanks @Shev. He may not be as tall as I hoped, but I glad my theory of him changing size for the situation is not totally wrong.
