So your the star of a new comic book movie coming onto the big screen, its a well known character and everything looks good. You could get a franchise out of this and could buy 5 houses with the wage. However, it turns out the movie wasn’t as good as it could have been, and a couple of years later the studio decide to forget your movie ever happened and redo the character with a different actor and direction. Know who I’m talking about? Well if the image doesn’t give it away, its Eric Bana. The Munich and Hulk actor recently spoke to MTV Movies Blog about the upcoming, The Incredible Hulk.
“I can’t wait to see it,” Bana said of the new “Incredible Hulk” film, a total reboot that wipes away the Bana/ Ang Lee version and starts over. “I think it will be amazing.”
In particular (and somewhat weirdly perhaps), Bana’s especially excited about Norton, the actor they got to replace him, he enthused.
“I’m a big fan of Ed’s. I was really thrilled that someone of Ed’s caliber stepped up to play [Hulk] in the sequel,” he said. “It’s great. I’m sure his version will be incredible.”
I don’t know what Bana’s seen but all we’ve seen is a couple of stills. Has he seen the upcoming teaser expected soon? Anyway, its good that he’s alright with it. I’m sure he was contacted regarding the role when they were talking about the future of the Hulk movies, and he decided it wasn’t for him. I’m sure he had more fun playing Natalie Portman and Scarlet Johansen against each other.
