Edward Norton recently spoke about The Avengers and if he would be willing to play Bruce Banner/Hulk in the superhero super film.
“Yeah, oh yeah,” he said. “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.”
Norton also seems to like the idea of Hulk as the film’s villain.
“He kind of was, 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.”
Of course, Norton still wouldn’t go on record as committing to the movie, citing his schedule as the reason.
“I just get very busy,” he said. “You have to deal with the demands of the moment. I tend to keep my head in the thing I’m doing, and I don’t speculate or worry too much about what two or three blocks down the thing is gonna be. I know all these things will reveal themselves and work out or not.”
