Wonder if this means that Hulk'll die in Avengers
? Could that have factored into Norton's leaving? Because if Ruffalo's Hulk goes over well, why bet against even exploring a solo movie with him? And dueling continuities would be rather confusing, so maybe Hulk'll die on the big screen, leaving the series to do a whole other continuity?
Whedon certainly proved his willingness to off major characters in Serenity
, after all... and what with Trek XI
, everyone's talking up TWOK
, but surely no one thinks Quinto's Spock is in any danger...
