Louis Leterrier Talks ‘Hulk,’ ‘Clash of the Titans’ Failures

Louis LeterrierMaking the press rounds for the release of his latest picture, magician heist thriller Now You See Me, director Louis Leterrier has opened up about his past Hollywood blockbusters The Incredible Hulk and Clash of the Titans - including what he feels went wrong with them.

Though Leterrier was quick to dispel rumors that he didn't get along with The Incredible Hulk star Edward Norton (who is said to have offered substantial revisions to the screenplay), but he did reveal that the largest problem he faced was beginning to direct a film without a script! "[Marvel/producers] were like, 'Oh, welcome, welcome. Great news, Louis. We just got a release date. It's a year from now.' I'm like, 'Fantastic, we have to go. Where's the script?' They said, 'Actually, that's the problem, we don't have a script.' ...I've started movies without screenplays both on Clash and on Hulk and that is tremendously stressful, because you have a tendency to overcompensate with effects," Leterrier explained.

Leterrier also admitted that Joss Whedon was not alone in picturing Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk: "I actually wanted to cast Mark Ruffalo as Hulk and Marvel was like "No, you should get Edward Norton because he's more famous."

It's been a long time coming for patiently waiting Marvel fans, but the 10-disc Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One - Avengers Assembled Blu-ray collection set is finally slated for release on April 2nd. The collection had previously been delayed by lawsuit, leaving Amazon to pacify pre-orderers with free copies of The Avengers.

Originally, the collection was to come with a S.H.I.E.L.D. briefcase, but that has since been scrapped due to the aforementioned licensing issue. It will, however, come with a suitcase featuring a glowing Tesseract on the inside. Also, thanks to the delay, the collection will have a few new extras, such as an early Iron Man 3 preview and the second phase of films. But with extra content comes extra financial responsibility, as the price is now $219 at retail--but you can preorder it for $197.10 on Amazon, saving yourself 10%.
