Edward Norton Says Marvel Was Interested In a Dark, Two-Film HULK Story
 

 

“I laid out a two-film thing: The origin and then the idea of Hulk as the conscious dreamer, the guy who can handle the trip,” Norton said. “And they were like, ‘That’s what we want!’ As it turned out, that wasn’t what they wanted.”

“We had positive discussions about going on with the films, and we looked at the amount of time that would’ve taken, and I wasn’t going to do that. I honestly would’ve wanted more money than they’d have wanted to pay me. But that’s not why I would’ve wanted to do another Hulk movie anyway.

“I’m saying that Kevin had an idea of a thing that you could do, and it was remarkable,” he said. “Now it didn’t happen to be on a tonal, thematic level what I wanted to spend my time doing.”

Not a huge marvel fan but Norton is notoriously hard to work with and often thinks he is the smartest dude in the room..

I hope Marvel eventually gets the rights back for The Hulk. Universal holds the rights to solo Hulk movies...which is why we only get Hulk in cameo/supporting/team-up roles

I still love the incredible hulk movie and still prefer Norton's hulk over Ruffalos. Ruffalos hulk looked like it had a slight case of down syndrome

Yea I would have much more preferred Edward Norton, but Ruffalo was younger

The Hulk that Edward Norton was in came out in like 2007

It wouldn’t have been easy to connect that story to Iron Man

And, that n*gga was like 6 years older than everyone else, so he would have looked like he was 50 in Avengers

It would have connected.... at the end of that hulk movie with Norton Starks shows up in post credit scene with that military old man. And talks about starting a team aka the avengers... go back and watch....but like I said Ruffallo was meant to play him.. fu*k Norton and his ego...

Yeah, Norton is a good actor, but I don't think his "vision" fit what Marvel was trying to do once it got the ball rolling.

A lot of people bash Marvels depth, but I don't need every comic book movie to be dark or brooding (even through TDK, Watchmen & Logan are some of my favorites).

I'm not saying that a dark Hulk story wouldn't work, I just don't think it would have fit Phase 1 MCU. They're saying that the next Dr.Strange will be dark and New Mutants still hasn't come out (hopefully it goes straight to Netflix).

At the end of the day these companies want to make as much as they can off IP's (toys, video games, fast food tie-ins), which is the real reason most of them want to keep it at PG13. Audience/mass appeal will win out every time.

Agreed. Nothing against him as a person, but I personally still don't care for Mark Ruffalo's Hulk to this day...it's always bothered me. Norton's Incredible Hulk is still a great film to watch.
