Norton talks Avengers

09.28.2009

Okay, it's really more that Ed Norton talks around THE AVENGERS, but since Marvel's big-screen team-up is still distant and nebulous, a bit of circumlocution will have to suffice.

When asked about his interest or willingness to return to the Marvel movie universe after his much-reported/exaggerated conflicts on THE INCREDIBLE HULK, Norton gives MTV an evasive "It's purely a function of time. It's always about just working things out on the schedule."

Norton admits that he digs the Marvel flicks' ability to "cross-pollinate" (and mentions how he dropped the Super Serum from Captain America into his HULK script), but he's wisely remaining noncommittal until things start to solidify. (And who can blame him -- it took Marvel a couple of months after IRON MAN opened huge to begin talking with Jon Favreau about a sequel.)

Check out MTV's vid interview with Norton RIGHT HERE.

Extra Tidbit: I particularly like his reaction when asked if he'd want to direct AVENGERS -- just an uncomfortable chortle.

Truth is

We NEED an Incredible Hulk sequel. Edward Norton really made me care for the character, and it was such a well-made action film. I think it's sad we already found the most decent Hulk adaptation and then kiss it goodbye

I hope they get Norton back, if only for a cameo in Avengers. And I'd be happy with an Incredible Hulk sequel as well, I mean if Ghost rider can get one...

The Incredible Hulk 2

I was really hoping for a sequel. And then Kevin Feige had this to say in July:

"I think there's always a chance. It's certainly our intention to use the same actors from film-to-film where we can (he's talking about the Avengers movie). However, should you be anticipating a The Incredible Hulk 2 you may be waiting a long time, that is _if it happens at all_. That would be post-Avengers if that happened."

HE MUST RETURN

Hulk is a very important character in The Avengers and he needs to be in this movie. It has to be Norton, he's a great actor and they must keep continuity in check. They've already recast Rhodes in IM2.

Interestingly, Norton doesn't actually have to appear to play Hulk, that can be done with CGI. The story could revolve around the Avengers trying to stop a rampaging Hulk, as he would be a formidable opponent. Perhaps even a cameo like thing at the end, where Hulk has reverted to Banner.

How great would it be if he reverted back to Banner and it was Eric Bana.

and...

Favs should direct "The Avengers" because he did an amazing job directing "Iron Man". Also if Norton were to not return, I would suggest Michael C. Hall or David Duchovny for Banner/The Incredible Hulk.

I've been in favor as casting Michael C. Hall as anything just to get him a solid movie career, but Banner is actually a great fit for him. The Hulk is not all that different than the Dark Passenger. Too bad it will never happen.

Also...

my pick for Captain America is Matt Damon. I don't know what it is but when I see him on screen I think Captain America.

Sounds good...

but I'm not getting a good feeling that he really wants to come back to play Banner/The Incredible Hulk. Norton is one of my favorite actors and I really hope he comes back and plays Banner/The Incredible Hulk again because he did a awesome job with "The Incredible Hulk".

Love Norton

American History X was amazing on so many levels and Hulk was pretty good. This dude deserves more but heard he's a real a hole to work with from MULTIPLE sources.
