Marvel Confirms Edward Norton Won't Be Returning As The Hulk
The studio is going in another direction and is actively looking for another name actor.
Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige forwarded the following email to HitFix:
"We have made the decision to not bring Ed Norton back to portray the title role of Bruce Banner in the Avengers. Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members. The Avengers demands players who thrive working as part of an ensemble, as evidenced by Robert, Chris H, Chris E, Sam, Scarlett, and all of our talented casts. We are looking to announce a name actor who fulfills these requirements, and is passionate about the iconic role in the coming weeks."
DogsOfWar-That is about as official as it gets and doesn't leave any wiggle room. An announcement could come as early as Comic-Con where Marvel is holding a big Hall H preview for Captain America and Thor movies on Saturday. Is Eric Bana available?
