And you'd be absolutely right. That's why I just laugh at the people who ***** and moan about recasts being the end of the world, when it's clear that the vast majority of audiences move right along with the switches.
But in reference to Norton, it wasn't that he refused to play Hulk again; it's that he and Marvel butted heads over the direction they wanted to take Hulk and the sequels, so Marvel fired him, point blank.
