In the tornado battle in Hancock when Hancock is fighting his "wife" there appears to be a huge (maybe mechanical) figure running through the destruction.

It appears to be almost twice the size of the people in the crowd and towers over the cars. Who or what is this figure?

  • Pretty sure it's just a person jumping in the air or walking on something (maybe a part of a car?) – Walt Nov 3 '14 at 10:34
  • @Walt just watched that section again on Netflix, I could be wrong but I don't think so - the closest I can describe it as is Iron Monger from Iron Man 1... – Liath Nov 3 '14 at 10:42
  • @Walt oh good - I'm not going mad! – Liath Nov 3 '14 at 14:10
  • Sorry, you're right. It seems the internet was wondering about it too and the mystery has been solved (read below). – Walt Nov 3 '14 at 14:12

According to IMDb:

When the people are running away from the tornadoes, suddenly a strange character runs from the left to the right of the screen. The character is about twice as tall as everyone else, and looks like a robot. It's a street performer, on stilts and in costume.

The performer has been since tracked down. He's one of the costumed people roaming Hollywood Blvd. who pose for pictures.

According to io9.com this is an extra who was wearing stilts.

Comic Book Movie has tracked down the man everyone is calling "the Hancock monster." It turns out he's a guy on stilts covered with seaweed, who roams Hollywood Blvd. and will pose for pictures for a few bucks.

However I've yet to find a more reliable source...

  • It actually makes sense. I forgot this was filmed on Hollywood Blvd, it's full of these people. – Walt Nov 3 '14 at 14:18
