    Yep. So it's clear Bana is on board whether he's under contract or not. Marvel needs to work it out since he's officially interested...as he should be.

    I sent this story to Mirko yesterday but he never posted it on the front page of The Hype. To me this is important Hulk sequel news because it shows Bana wants the job. Whether he's under contract or not he seems interested. He knows the check is gonna be large.

    Yes! I really hope Avi phones him. Didn't he say in some interview that Hulk 2 could not happen without Bana? Or was it the other way round...

    Don't call Eric Bana. Call Ed Norton! He would make a way better Bruce Banner AND YOU KNOW IT!

    Sure it is because every quote before from Bana was either negative, distancing from the project, or uninterested. He would also very likely be out of contract before this film is made and all prior articles suggested he wouldn't be in Hulk 2 if his contract ran out. Now suddenly he's interested and is looking forward to the same film that Avi has in mind. That means he'll be back unless Marvel doesn't call him.

    all he's said so far from when the first film came out, just shows that he didnt know what was going on, thats all.

    That's not true. He seemed to distance himself from the project and acted as if he didn't want to do it though said if they called him he'd have to per the contract but he was never "gung ho" about it or interested to the point of talking about the tone of the film. Now there's legitmate interest.

    Actors play the game of "i'm interested, I'm not interested" so they can demand higher pay.

    forget what you heard before the last month, if you were him, would you have comeback to make Hulk 2 with all the crap that was said before?... and remember, you are not a life long hulk fan.

    ^ Huh? I've been enjoying the Hulk since the 70's TV show. I actually watched those when they were new on TV.

    think about it in his point of view. He's not a life long fan (atleast, i dont think he is), we kept hearing random s**t about the sequel, then Universal pulled out, then the thing straight to dvd sequel. Would you really wanna comeback when Hulk 2 was like this?

    ^ Oh I gotcha but I don't think anyone believed that Hulk 2 would be direct to DVD. Marvel would never allow Universal to do that per the contract. Must be theatrical release with a certain amount of marketing, and since Avi is a producer they can't just side step him. Perhaps Bana was playing tough to make it difficult for Universal allowing Marvel to get the rights back and him to get a bigger paycheck. :)

    if he wanted a bigger paycheck, he would have taken the bond gig. He's always said that he's proud of Hulk 1. I've never got the "i want more money" vibe from him. But whats the use of arguing about that now, he's in Hulk 2, if they talk to the guy first... just say "Hi" Avi

    They need to get on the phone to him now to discuss his schedule. We'll know whether he is interested or not within the next year i should imagine, but that interview was definately a positive for me.

    over on IMDB, its got Hulk 2 down as 2007 but i doubt that, after Romulus, My Father, he doesnt have anything.

    Wow so theyre going forward with this huh? Hulk felt like a one shot deal to me, being simply a man and not a hero or such (in fact the ending in the south american jungle wasnt needed imo). I cant envision a sequel to it that would continue the first film. Maybe a reimagining, dunno.

    Hulk has huge potential as a franchise, that is why the comic has ran so long.
