Default Re: The "Keep Hope Alive" (that the rights can revert back to Marvel) thread

Yeah, you guys really burned me.

I wonder why he wouldn't bad mouth a major Hollywood studio... hmm...

- Had a disagreement with Marvel Studios on the final cut of the film (note he is not editor or director, but only a co-writer and actor in the film), refused to promote The Incredible Hulk in a juvenile form of protest and ended up not being asked to return in The Avengers.
Yep, he wanted the better quality film, and Marvel said screw you and heavily edited it. Figure you guys would side with Norton. But, whatever.

- By all acounts was a prima donna on the set of Iron Man 1 and was very difficult to work with. Also, he refused to make less money per picture than Robert Downey Jr., who was playing IRON MAN!! Howard was subsequently dropped for any further films.
Yeah, Marvel promised him 8 million dollars on the contract he signed for the sequel and once the movie was a hit they said "Screw You" and only offered 1 million. What a prima donna b****.

- Much like Norton, was unhappy with the final product of the film and how his role was treated in it. Before being cast, Rourke apparently balked at the amount Marvel offered him but ended up taking the role anyway. Rourke, by all accounts, appears to be yet another actor that is notoriously difficult to work with.
Damn, those actors who want a better quality film for the fans and general audience! Seriously though, if this was Fox you all would go into conniptions. The hypocrisy is astounding.

- Left the Thor sequel project based on creative differences with Marvel. By all accounts, she split on very good terms and even said that she would like to direct another Marvel Studios film someday.
The unknown director didn't bad mouth a major hollywood studio? Huh, you don't say.
