Louis Letterier (“The Incredible Hulk”) has been championing himself for the helmer’s position on “The Avengers” for… well, ever since he shook hands with Avi Arad that first time. Did the comics crowd ever take Letterier seriously though? Would they hire him over say, Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”) or Kenneth Branagh (“Thor”)? Doubtful, but Letterier tells Aint it Cool News that he’s now officially on Marvel’s “short list” to direct the Superhero team-up movie.

‘”I am on the shortlist, but I’m at the bottom of the shortlist, I’m sure. (Laughs) I don’t know who the other guys are, but I have a great relationship with [Marvel],and I’ve been very vocal to them and everyone else that I am the one to direct it.I loved my time at Marvel.I loved those guys.They’re fantastic. Kevin [Feige] is such a passionate boss; he gets his hands dirty.It’s a universe I want to keep exploring. I was frustrated with [THE INCREDIBLE HULK]. It was like, “That’s it? Only one superhero? Can I do more???” We’ll see. Time will tell.”

“The Avengers”, out 2012, will star Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Samuel L.Jackson as Nick Fury, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Chris Evans (if it’s true he has got the gig) as Captain America, and likely, Edward Norton as The Incredible Hulk.
