McCoy played the seventh incarnation of the Doctor in the long-running TV series Doctor Who – now with Jodie Whittaker at the helm – and was the last Doctor of the original run that ended in 1989.

Gremlin's star Zach Galligan also appeared for the occasion, alongside Ray Parker Jr – who is best known for writing and performing the theme song of the Ghostbusters film from 1984.

When he spoke to Red Carpet News TV last year at an MCM Comic Con event, Lou unveiled his connection with the Hulk and why he had been desperate to tackle the green monster and portray him on the screen.

He explained: "We all have a bit of hope in us, we all want to break windows, we all want to throw people around when we get angry, destroy cars … we all want to express how we really feel and the Hulk does it for us.

You know you're in a taxi and you get stuck in traffic, you're frustrated and just want to scream and chase the cars out or want to destroy things because you're angry – power too.

& # 39; We all have this connection with power. That powerful thing in us, that is how we connect with the Hulk. The Hulk expresses all that fear, that emotion, the demon.

I fantasized when I was little, those were the things I wanted to do. You always want the chance to destroy everything on the set without paying for it – it's great, every time I do a scene, the crew collapses.

Now I understand, they would clap because I would express their anger. They would relate to it, when I hit walls on a set and broke glasses, jumped out of the helicopters – it was a great experience. & # 39;

After for his & # 39; whole life & # 39; Joined the Hulk, Lou insisted that no one could help him bring the character to life.

& # 39; I was the Hulk all my life. I read the Hulk strip all the time, for me it was a chance to escape, "he revealed. I fantasized about the Hulk – all other characters have a costume, the Hulk has muscles.

& # 39; For me, especially to get into bodybuilding, I wanted to be powerful, so powerful that I could defend myself.

& # 39; When I went to the audition, I knew that no one could play the Hulk better than I could because I know how the Hulk thinks and feels. & # 39;
