Edward Norton continues to take the high road, says departure from The Avengers was strictly business

09.20.2010

It sort of sucks knowing that Edward Norton will not be reprising his role as The Hulk.

Honestly, Norton just wants us to be cool about it.

The actor spoke with MTV News about the situation, "The thing that was disingenuous about some of the stuff that had gone on is it was a very professional and very respectful business situation. We really couldn't work it out on a business level, aSimnd I know that's disappointing to some people, but it's nobody's fault. I don't have any disrespect for anybody's decisions in the business framework. You do what you feel you need to do on both sides, and that's totally fine," said Norton.

He remained classy about the "war of words" between himself and Marvel production chief Kevin Feige. In his opinion, it was strictly business, "I have no idea why anybody tried to characterize it as anything other than that kind of a decision, which is absolutely what it was."

Simply put, any negativity thrown Norton's way is not worth his time, "My life's way too good on too many levels to be over-intense about things like that. I didn't want to be negative about anything. I had a great time doing that. I was very happy to be part of it all. People's response to that film was great. That's everything you want. If you're going to do one of those, and be in those long traditions of those things we all grew up in, you don't want to be in one of the bad ones. So I'm really happy people had a good thing with that."

I've included the video of the interview below.
