MTV spoke with The Incredible Hulk producer Gale Anne Hurd, who said she has every intention on making a follow-up and that Edward Norton is signed on:
“It’s all going to depend on the screenplay and where his character goes in any sequel, because he does have a multiple-picture deal,” she said of Norton, who told us recently that he’s waiting to hear from Marvel regarding Hulk’s future. “[Norton’s situation] is the same with every franchise like this, when you have one of the top actors of his generation.”
But first, we are most likely going to see him in The Avengers:
“Next, he’s likely to appear in an ‘Avengers’ movie, but that’s completely up to Marvel,” she explained. “It’s wonderful that Marvel now controls so many of their own characters, and they can create a Marvel universe in film and populate it with so many of their characters who naturally exist together. I think an ‘Avengers’ film is a very exciting prospect.”
There has been talk recently that if the Hulk does appear in The Avengers, he will most likely be the villain.
