Edward Norton Hopes For Hulk Role

Edward Norton as Bruce BannerWill the third time be the charm for Marvel superhero the Incredible Hulk? Edward Norton thinks so.

The actor—who was believed to be unhappy with the final version of 2008’s movie about the green superhero, in which he played the title character and his alter ego Bruce Banner—says that he will happily appear in The Avengers, which unites Marvel Comic heroes Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and The Incredible Hulk, and is being planned for 2012.

Asked if he can see himself appearing in The Avengers, Edward said, “Yeah, oh yeah. The thing about Marvel‘s universe that’s fun is that it all cross-pollinates. Even when I was working on the script for The Incredible Hulk, I tried to plug in the whole Super-Soldier Serum from Captain America.”

Edward even hopes that the movie will see his character portrayed as the villain, fighting against the other characters: “He kind of was the villain, not in the books, but in the comics there was always a tension between the rest of the superhero community and he was always this problem. They treat him as this problem. I don’t know, I think that’s a fun way to go with it.”
