Ed Norton
 
I was happy to hear Sam Jackson signed with marvel mostly because i was happy we would not have another recast, one is enough for me. Just wanted to know if anyone knows what the situation is with Edward Norton? Has it been confirmed that he wouldnt return? Or is it still touch and go? I would hate to not have him come back mostly because of the recast but also because I thought he was great as the Hulk.:bh:

I coulda swore there was an interview with the producer on SHH! awhile back that said he signed a multipicture deal and that he was definitely gonna continue playing Banner.

Agreed! So, yeah, i think he will be in The Avengers, which will be awesome, if you ask me. I mean, the Hulk in an Avengers film with Iron Man, Thor, etc? That just rocks so hard.

I definitely feel like it's important to maintain continuity and use the same actors for the Avengers. It wouldn't feel right to see a different actor play Banner as Norton was perfect in my opinion.

So they definitely need to make sure that Robert Downey Jr., Norton, Jackson, and the actors who will play Thor, Captain America, and Ant Man are locked up in order to keep the film on the right track. This is going to be a tough task and they need to have all of the actors, writers, producers, and director on board to make sure this happens.

^^^Agreed. Also I just really think Norton is one of the best actors of our time. He's awesome in everything he does.

I hope Norton returns. I really liked him as Banner, then let him do the sequel to TIH.

"LIKELY" to appear... like always... just like Marvel had to negotiate with Howard, Jackson, Rourke... they will negotiate and re-negotiate with Norton when the time comes... there is no court order that says Norton has to be a part of it. If Marvel doesn't want to meet Norton's demands/expectations and visa versa... he probably won't be back.

Re: Ed Norton
 
Norton does have a multi-picture deal with the studio which means he'll be back. Sure he could void the deal, but he'd be penalized for it just like breaking any other contract. The whole "rift" between him and Marvel was blown way out of proportion. He'll be back.

norton will be back, bank on it.

I imagine Norton doing only Banner scenes, pissed on how the Hulk doesn't get much action :hehe:

i just want to know if the hulk will be a villain in the avengers movie or not?

Re: Ed Norton
 
I really liked Norton as Banner. It would be great to see him back. But I wonder, if the Hulk is supposed to be the "villian" of the first film, would that change his decsion? Norton is notoriously protective of his work. He might see it in the wrong light.

FaT_tONle 03-10-2009 09:07 PM

Re: Ed Norton
 
I think if you center it to where the Hulk is the focus of the film for a large part of the movie... Norton may be up for it. Something where the Avengers/villains are both after the Hulk. Sort of focus on the conflicted Banner... who does not want his powers falling into the hands of even more dangerous villains. Definitely think he should be a focal point in the film if they use Hulk.

I'd like that. Maybe they go ahead further with the Hulk hero thing & have Hulk join the Avengers because of the things he saw the villain(s) did.

Re: Ed Norton
 
Or maybe Banner thinks he can contain The Hulk as is implied at the end of the film and joins the Avengers, only to lose control near the end and have to be stopped after saving the world from the powerful villain.

That's exactly what his contract is.

The only way Norton won't be back is if either Marvel or Norton voids the agreement, and if it's Norton, he'll be penalized for it. I tend to think that Norton would rather play Banner again than pay a fine to get out of it.

Re: Ed Norton
 
I'm sorry but how could Norton turn down one of the biggest scale movies of all time (probably). It doesn't seem likely but if he keeps complaining like he did for TIH then I imagine they'll pull the plug on him.


I'd say keep him. And I also say he'll want to come back. He hasn't had anything big for a while now. Pride and Glory was forgettable and he needs something so he can stay big.

FaT_tONle 03-12-2009 06:55 PM

Re: Ed Norton
 
The problem is they won't be able to pay everybody in all likelyhood. Norton will need a salary close to RDJ's level... I don't think he will get anywhere near that hence he won't return IMO.

Re: Ed Norton
 
The film could be about the Avengers trying to recruit the Hulk as they need him to fight off the threat that's putting the world in danger. Then the movie could sort of be based around the Avengers trailing on Hulk's tail as they keep getting attacked by aliens (if we go with Ultimates) and Hulk is also attacked by aliens.

Re: Ed Norton
 
Hopefully he will return something would seem wrong about having the hulk only appearing while banner does not at all appear granted that did happend in the comic books at times.Well at least they can still get Lou Ferrigno to provide the voice for the hulk beside I would like to see th hulk talk more for the avengers movie especially since the hulk will have to interact with the others.

They need to get Norton, Tyler, and Hurt signed on to the Avengers
