Norton talks Hulk

01.23.2008
Up until William Hurt opened his cake-hole the other day, Marvel had done a pretty impressive job keeping things stealthy on their upcoming revamp THE INCREDIBLE HULK, surely no small feat with a main character who's eight feet tall and almost as broad. Will we get our first taste of green teaser during the Super Bowl?

Ed Norton, the new face of tormented scientist Bruce Banner, recently dropped some non-spoiler knowledge, stating that they took a page from Chris Nolan's playbook and decided: "We’re going to start completely with our own version of this myth or saga." But he had his share of hesitation in potentially being forever branded the thinner half of Marvel's monster. "There’s the wince factor or the defensive part of you that recoils at what the bad version of what that would be. And I did that, basically. I said ‘no’ to it a couple of times." (One of the caveats to his involvement was that he got a few weeks to rewrite Zak Penn's script.)

He must've been fully convinced somewhere along the Hulk's lonely road -- he's already thinking of more things to smash. "To me the whole thing was to envision it in multiple parts. We left a lot out on purpose. It’s definitely intended as chapter one." Of course, Ang Lee and Eric Bana may have thought the same thing...

WTF....um...this is a year old? It has an article number in the 19,000s, but we're up in the 23,000s today, so someone f***ed up.

intothebadlands - I don't see why that's a bad thing, since he pretty much does that in the comics.

Edward Norton is a real control freak, isn't he? Locking himself in the editing room of American History X to change the ending (which didn't turn out to be the worst idea, mind you) and now he wouldn't come on board unless he rewrote the script?

I read an interview with Brett Ratner and they asked him who the biggest pain in the ass to work with was and he said Edward Norton, simply

I read an interview with Brett Ratner and they asked him who the biggest pain in the ass to work with was and he said Edward Norton, simply because "he doesn't let anyone do their own damn job. I just wish he would've stuck to what he was hired to do and leave everybody else alone."

Granted, I haven't seen a Brett Ratner film I liked (Red Dragon was "okay" in my book), but it sounds like Edward Norton would be the last person I'd want to work with if I was a director.

Hulk/Ironman Crossover

I've been hearing a lot of this Hulk/Ironman crossover that might happen.

But based on this picture and a previous [link] picture, the only crossover that I am certain of is that freakin white tank top moving from Norton to Downey's body while they're tampering with their "gadgets".

Damn late night discoveries.

Ugh

I'm not excited about this at all. I thought the Lee/Bana film was great--would have been perfect if it hadn't been for those stupid shots of him jump-flailing through the air, covering miles in a single bound.
