The Incredible Hulk is the MCU's black sheep. You could have skipped it, and you wouldn't feel like you missed anything while watching the other films.

So...do you think that there will ever be a point where the MCU will make the movie feel important?

It was better than Thor 2 and IM 2.

Not sure why Hulk is the black sheep. Hulk was at least interesting there and wasn't used as a mid-boss for Avengers and comic relief.

Doubtful. Whedon seemed to put the kibosh on Betty and Banner in favor of that out-of-nowhere Black Widow thing, and I don't think we're going to see Leader or Abomination again, particularly given how Hulk movie rights are tied up. And given that it's a different actor at the helm now, I don't think it will ever be required viewing. At best, it will be little nods here and there such as mentions of the battle on the Netflix shows or Ross in Civil War.
I used to be superstitious, but now I know that's unlucky.

I think he means black sheep in the sense of its overall relevance to the MCU, not the quality of the film. It has no sequel, none of its villains were ever followed up on, Hulk is now played by someone else, the romance angle was dropped without in-story explanation, and it was made at a time before everything was as continuity-heavy. You could skip the entire film and, in terms of the goings-on of the MCU, not miss anything.

No. But Ross is in Civil War, for whatever that's worth? Funny he's in the "Avengers" movie that Hulk ISN'T in.

Hulk was more interesting in Avengers than TIH. Or, at least Banner was.

Abomination was mention on AoS.

A lot of MCU films can be ignored. None of the Thor films, Iron Man 3, or GotG matter by the same logic.

Im also quite sure Luke Cage will have to bring it up since the last fight took place in his neighborhood.

I personally think it would be annoying if each films or show constantly pulled out every film as reference. It would force people to watch everything instead of just letting them watch what they like in the shared universe.

Everything matters until its contradicted. So far i havent seen anything from IH contradicted so they clearly havent ignored it. I wouldt be surprised if Ross has both Abomination and Leader currently and just needs the SHRA to pass so he can use them publicly like Talbot is using Absorbing Man.

IH has always been in-continuity. It remains pretty irrelevant. Ross showing up in SW is good, but unless his actions are motivated BY the events of that film, it remains kind of meaningless.

I do hope they bring back Abomination at some point though.
