Norton on Hulk 2

It's sad that while everyone is clamoring over sequels to IRON MAN and THE DARK KNIGHT, one of the best superhero films of the summer, THE INCREDIBLE HULK, has been left out of the sequel talk. Sure it didn't break records at the box-office but it was quality and that should be the real benchmark for a sequel. MTV caught up with Edward "Dont Call Me Ed" Norton to talk about what, if anything, Marvel wanted to do with Hulk. Norton, perhaps still feeling a little sting from the creative battles he had with the studio, calls their thinking "opaque" adding "I don’t have any idea what they want to do." MTV describes a skeptical Norton when talk turns to THE AVENGERS as the actor says. "They’ve got this notion of collecting the Marvel characters...Who knows where they’ll go?"

You'll notice that Norton twice refers to those involved with the project as "they" and not "we," which would seem to indicate some kind of disconnect. While I'm sure Marvel would go on record as saying they'd love to have Norton back (just like Warner Bros. would "love" to have Bryan Singer return to SUPERMAN), I think they'd be just as happy to recast the role for whatever AVENGERS need they have. And from the sounds of things, that sounds fine with Norton.

Extra Tidbit: Can you at least bring Tim Blake Nelson back as The Leader in an AVENGERS movie?
