Fans hoping for an even bigger 'Incredible Hulk' need only wait for the upcoming Blu-ray release, which according to the film's director will come with over an hour of cut footage.

In a recent interview with Collider, 'Incredible Hulk' helmer Louis Leterrier revealed that the planned Blu-ray release of the film (which is due to open this Friday) will include no less than 70 minutes of material excised from the theatrical cut.

"I want to put [on the Blu-ray] everything we shot," said Leterrier. "I'm not the kind of guy that likes to keep the stuff for myself. In the 70 minutes, there's some great stuff and there's some really horrible stuff, but you'll see it all."

As has been widely publicized, those close to the production have speculated that Leterrier and 'Hulk' star Edward Norton had a famous falling out over the edits made to the movie, which now runs 114 minutes. We'll certainly be looking forward to having all our questions answered by the eventual Blu-ray release.

Though any potential street date for 'The Incredible Hulk' is still far from being announced by Universal, as always, we'll keep you posted on the release as soon as more news comes to us. Stay tuned!
