Avengers & Ed Norton

A little tid bit for those of us following the Captain America & Thor threads.

AVENGERS related.
Ed Norton's agents have had, it seems, casual feel you out type talks about Norton being interested. Seems he is open to the idea...for now.
Asked if Marvel had been in communication to work things out, Norton says "Yeah, to some degree, through my agents...But there's always been an agenda I think to unspool a lot of the Marvel Universe and then come back... I think they've got a lot of new stuff that they're rolling out and then I think at some point they're going to figure out how they want to get around to 'Avengers.'"
He also added that "The main guy I had a beef with there left anyways, as always happens. As David Mamet said, 'Just wait 'em out cause they'll be gone, and you'll still be there'", which explains one of the big reasons for his newfound optimism
I'd wager it might come down to how much screen time he'd get. Being his jaded alter-ego would be needed for a truer adaption of Avengers #1 Banner might not have much actual face time. A good screenplay might prove otherwise but hey its still 2-3yrs away.

Query, why wasn't participation in The Avengers a condition of his contract for The Incredible Hulk?

Re: Avengers & Ed Norton

From other interviews I've read, he said he enjoyed doing the Hulk and wishes all the behind the scene arguements didn't become public knowledge.

I don't think it's not that he doesn't want to do it, it's just that the longer they wait the bigger scheduling conflicts they might have. Someone like Norton isn't going to turn down other parts waiting to reprise his role as Banner.

They should have done a Hulk sequel to keep him occupied in the mean time.

Re: Avengers & Ed Norton

Actor contracts are so bloody long and complicated, there's always any number of ways for an actor to get out of sequel options. His participation in anything else may have depended on several factors that are no longer relevant. After his dissatisfaction with The Incredible Hulk and the rumours about him not wanting to promote it, perhaps he eventually did on the stipulation that he's released from further commitments. Things like that happen all the time. I'm sure you heard about his grumbling and not wanting to do press, but suddenly he turns up in things promoting it. That doesn't just happen because somebody said; "Edward, please?"

Re: Avengers & Ed Norton

I wonder who he didn't get along with?

Well today at least, this is positive news I think. But it all seems to change from day to day.

I just want him in for continuity's sake (I'm a sucker for that type of stuff).

I bet Bana would have had no problem being second or third fiddle in an Avengers movie.

Or, Bana & Norton could split up screentime and both play Banner. They don't explain it, and one scene there's Norton, and then the next there's Bana. Maybe Stark or Captain America could comment like, "Hey, you look different", but that's all the attention they give it.

That was my first thought. I don't remember if he was part of the 2nd Hulk movie.

I wish they'd done that with Cyclops in X3 rather than kill him off just because the actor was doing Superman Returns. The guy's a mutant and behind a visor, for Pete's sake! Just toss in a casual reference to not figuring out how to undo some gene-scrambling mutant's attack.

I too hope Norton comes back in some capacity. But wouldn't it be a mindf**** if Bana returned... with the continuity and other cast members carried over from TIH?!

Whoever it was, they were clearly in the wrong. Having seen just the cut footage on the 2 disc DVD, I can tell there was a lot of phenomenal character stuff that hit the floor. The movie as it is is decent, definitely a fun little popcorn movie, but it could have been so much better.

McCoy: "She change her hair?"

Kirk: "I hadn't noticed."

Now, I know being a member of this board I should know better, but I'm drawing a blank right now. What movie was that from and in reference to what?

I'm guessing it's referring to Saavik, but I'm probably wrong.
