Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has released a statement confirming that Edward Norton will not be returning as the Hulk, in The Avengers Movie.
Feige says that “our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead is rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members”. (Ouch) It’s interesting because Norton had met with Joss Whedon and both seemed to be on board with him returning as the Hulk. Norton was said to be excited about reprising his role until Marvel informed him the role will be recast. So now the question is who will be the new Hulk.
