The Hulk debuted in television in 1966 as part of The Marvel Super Heroes animated series. Produced by Grantray-Lawrence Animation, headed by Grant Simmons, Ray Patterson and Robert Lawrence, the series is in stop-motion comic book form, with radio personalities Max Ferguson voicing the Hulk and Paul Soles voicing Bruce Banner. The 39 seven-minute segment episodes were shown, along with those featuring Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and Sub-Mariner also from that series. They were all based on the early stories from The Incredible Hulk and Tales to Astonish comic book series from Marvel. The series shows Bruce Banner's origin of becoming the Hulk and struggling to keep his dual identity a secret from everyone, as well as trying to maintain his romance with Betty Ross, friendship with Rick Jones—the only one knowing that Banner and the Hulk are the same, and first battling super-villains such as the Leader, Metal Master, Ringmaster, Chameleon, Boomerang & Tyrannus. While at the same time battling and avoiding the military headed by Betty's father General Thunderbolt Ross with his right hand man Glenn Talbot.
The Hulk appeared in the 1978–1982 live action television series, The Incredible Hulk, and its subsequent television films. Created by Universal Studios, it starred Bill Bixby as Dr. David Banner and Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk. It does not follow the comic book-fantasy format, omits the typical villains or supporting characters, and Hulk does not speak, but only growls and roars. In this series, David Banner becomes the Hulk, is assumed dead, and goes on the run while being pursued by tabloid investigative reporter Jack McGee (Jack Colvin), who is bent on proving that the creature exists. The two-hour pilot movie, which established the Hulk's origins, aired on November 4, 1977. The series was originally broadcast by CBS from March 10, 1978 to June 2, 1982, with eighty-two episodes in five seasons, and later followed by three television films.
- The Hulk returned to television with the animated series, The Incredible Hulk (1982–1983), which aired in a combined hour with Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. The series once again shows Bruce Banner transformed into The Hulk by accident and struggling to keep it secret from Betty Ross and everyone else around him. Rick Jones is the one who shares his secret and helps control it while Bruce uses his new powers to battle supervillains such as the Leader, Spymaster, Doctor Octopus, Hydra, and the Puppet Master; while fighting the military at the same time lead by Betty's father General Thunderbolt Ross with Major Glenn Talbot whose first name had been changed to "Ned". This series featured the first animated appearance of Bruce's cousin Jennifer who becomes the She-Hulk. Bruce Banner was voiced by Michael Bell, while the Hulk was voiced by Bob Holt, the narrator was voiced by Hulk co-creator Stan Lee himself, and Betty Ross was voiced by B.J. Ward.

In the episode "Mind Over Anti-Matter", Banner turns into a monstrous Dark Hulk when possessed by an evil entity, both voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson. The show had all the elements from the comics, from his origin to Bruce's turmoil with being the Hulk and his romance with Betty Ross as well as his friendship with Rick Jones (voiced by Luke Perry) who followed Hulk around to help and look out for him while Hulk/Bruce was being hunted by the military lead by Betty's father General Thunderbolt Ross with Glenn Talbolt. The series also had Doc Samson who helped out the Hulk, while at the same time battling him. The series featured The Hulk facing off against his archenemy The Leader with his Gamma mutated army including Abomination, Gargoyle & Ogress; Hulk also dealt with other villains like Zzzax, Absorbing Man and Dr Doom.

- The Trial of the Incredible Hulk (1989) – Sequel directed by Bill Bixby, with Rex Smith as Matt Murdock/Daredevil and John Rhys-Davies as Wilson Fisk/Kingpin. This film marks the first time Stan Lee appeared in a Marvel movie.
- The Death of the Incredible Hulk (1990) – Again directed by Bixby, this became the final installment of the television live-action franchise.
- Hulk explores the origins of the Hulk, which is partially attributed to Banner's father's experiments on himself, and on his son. The film stars Eric Bana as Dr. Bruce Banner, as well as Jennifer Connelly, Sam Elliott, Josh Lucas, and Nick Nolte with Ang Lee directing the film. The film is produced and distributed by Universal Pictures.
Marvel Cinematic Universe (2008-present)
- Edward Norton portrays Bruce Banner in The Incredible Hulk (2008), with Lou Ferrigno providing the voice of the Hulk.
- Norton did not return to the role in The Avengers (2012), being replaced by Mark Ruffalo. This time, the voice of the Hulk was a mix of Ruffalo, Ferrigno and a few others, though the Hulk's single line of dialog, "Puny god", was provided solely by Ruffalo. Mike Seymour of FX Guide called Ruffalo's Hulk "the most successful Hulk" in comparison to "the less than fully successful earlier attempts at digital Hulks." Seymour explained, "Ang Lee's 2003 Hulk and Louis Leterrier's The Incredible Hulk both failed in producing a Hulk that could walk the digital tightrope of impressive near undefeatable strength, huge body mass, fast agile movement, raw anger and likable performance." He stated that on contrary Ruffalo's Hulk had "both dynamic action sequences and crowd pleasing moments of humor and dialogue". In order to achieve this, Industrial Light & Magic created a new motion capture and facial animation system. Hulk's face was generated from a life cast / scan of Ruffalo's face, which was then manipulated in the program ZBrush to become the Hulk, while making sure to retain Ruffalo's essence.
- Ruffalo reprises the role of Banner in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Thor: Ragnarok (2017). Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame (2019). Additionally, Ruffalo makes various cameos appearances as Banner in post-credits scenes for two films Iron Man 3 (2013) and Captain Marvel (2019), with the latter featuring him in the mid-credits scene.
A sequel to 2008's The Incredible Hulk has been discussed, with Marvel Studios having suggested a possible release after 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron due to the positive audience reception towards Ruffalo's portrayal of Bruce Banner in The Avengers. In June 2014, Ruffalo said he believed the studio might be considering doing a new standalone Hulk film, saying, "I think they are, for the first time, entertaining the idea of it. When we did The Avengers it was basically 'No!', and now there is some consideration for it. But there's still nothing definitive, not even a skeletal version of what it would be." In December 2014, Joss Whedon stated that, for the time being, a new solo Hulk film has not been announced or confirmed, due to Marvel wishing to have a character that only appears in Avengers films, despite the positive reception to Ruffalo.
In April 2015, Ruffalo told Collider that Universal Pictures holding the distribution rights to Hulk films may be an obstacle to releasing a future Hulk standalone film. Two nights after the release of Infinity War, fans started a petition for Marvel to extend Ruffalo's contract for him to appear in an Incredible Hulk 2 and for Universal to let Disney have the distribution rights to any potential post-Endgame Hulk films and Disney, in return, give Universal, for each, a marquee credit (including placement of the studio's opening logo) and 8-9% of the profits as they have for Paramount Pictures with The Avengers and Iron Man 3. This likely will not happen since unlike Paramount, Universal holds the theme park rights to several Marvel characters (including the Hulk) in its theme parks that Disney (Marvel's parent company) wants, but is restricted by the 1994 Marvel theme park agreement with Universal, for its own theme parks.
- The Hulk has been featured in Ultimate Avengers, an animated direct-to-video adaptation of the Ultimates produced by Marvel Entertainment and Lions Gate Films, voiced by Fred Tatasciore. Based on the Ultimate Hulk, Bruce Banner (voiced by Michael Massee) is working on recreating the super soldier serum. Banner thinking that the serum could help him control the Hulk, and creates a cure with his own blood. After the fight with the Chitauri, the Hulk becomes out of control and is taken down by the Avengers. In the sequel, Ultimate Avengers 2, Banner is voiced again by Massee and is in a prison cell due to what occurred in the first film. At the end the Hulk voiced again by Tatasciore breaks out of the cell and escapes.
- An elderly Hulk appears in the alternate universe Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow, with Bruce Banner voiced by Ken Kramer and Hulk voiced again by Tatasciore.
