I'm definitely seeing this movie on IMAX. Will it also be coming to us in 3D? If so, I hope it doesn't suck. I liked Ironman 2 but it wasn't very
strong but it's always fun to watch. The scene in this movie where Tony Stark has flown to his pimp penthouse and his Ironman suit is being
dismantled, freakin awesome. The last Hulk movie I liked, especially since Edward Nortan was the Hulk. I'm kinda annoyed he's not playing the same
role in the Avengers, why is that? The Hulk movie before that we dare not speak of... I enjoyed the Capt. America movie but it didn't blow me away,
still very good. I haven't seen Thor yet, I should, but I heard good things about it.
Either way, this movie looks great and is definitely going to be a blast. I don't go to movies much, too expensive, but I will be going to see this,
edit: here's why Nortan isn't playing the Hulk in the Avengers
Ed Norton Not in 'Avengers', Marvel Says It's Not Money, Rep Claims It's Totally About Money
An official statement released by Marvel President of Production Kevin Feige has revealed Norton, who played Bruce Banner in the most recent Hulk
film and a priest in that romantic comedy with Jenna Elfman, will be replaced by another actor, saying:
"We have made the decision to not bring Ed Norton back to portray the title role of Bruce Banner in the Avengers. Our decision is definitely
not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other
talented cast members. The Avengers demands players who thrive working as part of an ensemble, as evidenced by Robert, Chris H, Chris E, Sam,
Scarlett, and all of our talented casts. We are looking to announce a name actor who fulfills these requirements, and is passionate about the iconic
role in the coming weeks."
But that's not it, guys, because Ed Norton's agent is not the kind of guy who's going to sit idly by while his client is libeled with claims of not
embodying the creative and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members. No one goes around saying Ed Norton doesn't embody the creative
and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members on his watch. So he released this lengthy statement to HitFix:
This offensive statement from Kevin Feige at Marvel is a purposefully misleading, inappropriate attempt to paint our client in a negative
light. Here are the facts: two months ago, Kevin called me and said he wanted Edward to reprise the role of Bruce Banner in The Avengers. He told me
it would be his fantasy to bring Edward on stage with the rest of the cast at ComiCon and make it the event of the convention. When I said that Edward
was definitely open to this idea, Kevin was very excited and we agreed that Edward should meet with Joss Whedon to discuss the project. Edward and
Joss had a very good meeting (confirmed by Feige to me) at which Edward said he was enthusiastic at the prospect of being a part of the ensemble cast.
Marvel subsequently made him a financial offer to be in the film and both sides started negotiating in good faith. This past Wednesday, after several
weeks of civil, uncontentious discussions, but before we had come to terms on a deal, a representative from Marvel called to say they had decided to
go in another direction with the part. This seemed to us to be a financial decision but, whatever the case, it is completely their prerogative, and we
accepted their decision with no hard feelings.
We know a lot of fans have voiced their public disappointment with this result, but this is no excuse for Feige's mean spirited, accusatory comments.
Counter to what Kevin implies here, Edward was looking forward to the opportunity to work with Joss and the other actors in the Avengers cast, many of
whom are personal friends of his. Feige's statement is unprofessional, disingenuous and clearly defamatory. Mr. Norton talent, tireless work ethic and
professional integrity deserve more respect, and so do Marvel's fans.
