You mean two movies. The original Hulk movie doesn't count, as the Norton one was a reboot, of course.

I think the "upset" was more over Norton being a huge insufferable twat necessitating the recasting of the role for the third time in as many movies. I can't recall, however, any real concerns over Ruffalo himself.
Yeah, Norton should blame himself for Marvel not asking him to appear again in Avengers. He made his own bed by being so difficult, so I don't feel sorry for him.

Just like I don't feel sorry for Terrance Howard, who was reportedly the highest paid actor in the first Iron Man, getting recast for not taking a pay-cut when it came time to do IM2.

Three Hulk movies (or two Hulk-specific movies and one movie with Hulk in it) were made. Each movie with a different actor in it. Three actors played the Hulk in as many (3) movies. I meant what I said. That the Ang Lee Hulk movie doesn't count in the MCU is irrelevant it's still a movie that was made with an actor portraying the Hulk/Banner in it. If that movie had been success it never would've necessitated a reboot and, hell, the entire MCU likely would have been very different.

We should be grateful that Ang Lee's Hulk flopped.

If it had been a hit, Universal wouldn't have given the rights back to Marvel Studios, and Hulk wouldn't have even been in the Avengers.

Yeah, the use of Hulk in Avengers was great. Who knows what would have happened if Hulk stayed with Universal.

Still, you meant the role was recast for the second time. Eric Bana was the first, so that doesn't count as recasting the role, just casting it (unless you're including Bixby/Ferrigno).

Bixby/Ferrigno had tv movies, so technically there have been four live action Hulks.

Or would that be one live action Hulk, and three CGI Hulks?

Right, and Trial of the Incredible Hulk featured the world's first Stan Lee Marvel Movie Cameo, so that means it officially counts!

And yes, there's only been one live-action Hulk. There have been four live-action Banners (well, one David Banner and three Bruce Banners).

Plus in animation we have Paul Soles, Michael Bell, Ron Perlman, Neal McDonough, Michael Massee, Andrew Kavadas, Ken Kramer, and Gabriel Mann as Bruce Banner and Max Ferguson, Peter Cullen, Bob Holt, Perlman, Lou Ferrigno, Mark Gibbon, Rick D. Wasserman, Travis Willingham, and Fred Tatasciore (in about six different continuities at this point) as the Hulk. And that's not even counting video games.

Not pedantry, just compulsiveness. Pedantry implies it's directed at others. I just like making lists, and I hate leaving things out.

I wasn't a fan of Norton or that Hulk movie, but I have to admit I was kinda bummed to hear he wouldn't be in Avengers.

I seem to remembering some grumbling about Chris Hemsworth as Thor. The internet's favorite was the guy who plays the viking vampire on TRUE BLOOD, not some guy who played Kirk's dad for ten minutes in the Trek reboot. And he was Australian for pete's sake. Whoever heard of an Australian viking?

Didn't the internet want that wrestler HHH at some point to play Thor?
The internet is so often very wrong about which actor is right for what role.
