Apparently The Incredible Hulk came out this summer. The reason I say apparently is because I didn’t get the chance to see it, and a few weeks after it was released The Dark Knight came out and dominated the world, erasing the green man from my brain. Even though I cannot comment on how good it was, it has a respectable 7.5/10 on IMDB, which shows quite a few people liked it. However, it made around $10 million less compared to the 2003 version (considering the budgets) so unlike Iron Man, Marvel are less likely to green light a sequel.
Edward Norton recently spoke to MTV about whether he had heard anything from Marvel regarding future movies (whether it be another Hulk movie or the planned Avengers movie)
“The minds of Marvel are sometimes opaque,” Norton told MTV News. “I won’t say [they’re] obtuse, but I don’t have any idea what they want to do.”
Norton said he’s also been kept in the dark regarding any plans for him, in his role as Hulk’s alter-ego Bruce Banner, to appear in Marvel’s big team-up project, “The Avengers.” The film, which is expected to feature The Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America and several other Marvel characters, is currently scheduled for a 2011 release.
“They’ve got this notion of collecting the Marvel characters,” said Norton, who appeared a bit skeptical of Marvel’s ambitious plans for the project. “Who knows where they’ll go?”
So there we have it, Edward Norton hasn’t heard anything and we haven’t learned anything new. However, considering the problems Norton and Marvel had during the making of The Incredible Hulk, Marvel may plan on using The Hulk in The Avengers, but not Bruce Banner, therefore Norton wouldn’t be needed.
