I don't know the reasons. All I've read is a very unprofessional statement quoted to Kevin Feige. Since it's so blatantly unprofessional, I can't take it seriously. It's also pretty vague. Could mean anything.

Fair enough, but it still bugs me that Norton put all that effort into the character of Banner only to be recast.

If Norton had just realized his services as actor didn't give him final cut on the film he probably would have been brought back. Frankly I find it refreshing that Marvel didn't give into the little prima donna's ego trip. If they didn't take it from Terrence Howard no reason they should have to take it off of Edward Norton.

Norton also co-wrote the movie.

I was really looking forward to seeing him play Banner/Hulk again.

The difference, however, is that Marvel did offer Norton a certain amount of creative control to get him on board TIH (which up to then, was widely assumed to be destined as a cheap direct-to-DVD sequel to the Ang Lee movie, with little-known stars on board). Norton is known for being demanding in terms of his influence on movies (American History X for one) but he also has a certain amount of experience as a director and for having creative input. We'll never know the full story, but it was a little rich of Marvel to lure him on board with promises of creative input, then to drop him for wanting to have, you know, creative input.

The difference also is that Norton was the star of TIH, while Howard was playing a supporting role. And finally, the difference also is that Howard was dropped over money, pure and simple. Norton certainly has never been a 'take the money and run' actor.

Samuel L. Jackson's script has been stolen and is up for sale.

The Avengers will introduce a new costume for Captain America!

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=76962

I guess it was pretty obvious they would give him a modernized version of his suit.

Don't know if anyone saw this, but Ed Norton discussed the Avengers thing recently

Yes, makes sense. Though I'm really loving that retro one from the CA solo movie.

What exactly makes it retro? Looks very modern to me.

^ I think it looks very period. It has the look and shape of a WWII US army outfit. The chunky material, the shape of the helmet, the straps and chunky boots. I really like it, like I say, but I imagine that the Avengers one will be much more streamlined and lighter-looking.

This looks modern to you? The Hydra Soldiers kind of look a little modern though. Actually on second thought they look like they would have a few years ahead of us.
