Iâ€™d heard a while ago that Edward Norton had already let Marvel know that he wasnâ€™t going to be returning for any â€œHulkâ€ sequel â€“ let alone an â€œAvengersâ€ movie.
And itâ€™s not necessarily because he didnâ€™t enjoy the finished product (which he didnâ€™t) because ya see, Norton let the studio know up-front that he wasnâ€™t going to be their man if they wanted a franchise. It was a one-off deal playing the green giant as far as the notoriously-picky actor is concerned. And at the time, Marvel was quite happy to scrub the sequel option from his contract â€“ probably just glad to have him at all. Fair enough.
I strongly doubt Marvel will sequelize â€œThe Incredible Hulkâ€ anyway â€“ it didnâ€™t make enough to warrant one, surprisingly enough; I actually thought it was good â€“ but theyâ€™re definitely thinking of using The Hulk in the â€œAvengersâ€ movie. What will they do if Norton doesnâ€™t agree to come back? Bring back Bana?
A seemingly apathetic Norton told MTV News today that he knows of â€œThe Avengersâ€ plan but heâ€™s heard zip and says Marvel are about as unclear of their own plans as an amnesiac spy would be.
â€œThe minds of Marvel are sometimes opaque,â€ Norton told the site. â€œI wonâ€™t say [they’re] obtuse, but I donâ€™t have any idea what they want to do.
â€œTheyâ€™ve got this notion of collecting the Marvel characters,â€ said Norton, who appeared a bit skeptical of Marvelâ€™s ambitious plans for the project. â€œWho knows where theyâ€™ll go?â€
