Official Statement from Marvel Entertainment about the future of Edward Norton in The Hulk. Some serious dissing going on here that the company don’t even attempt to disguise. I love Norton so I’m going to bias on his side. Is there sides?
We’ve 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.
