Edward Norton is the Incredible Hulk.


Two-time Academy AwardŽ nominee Edward Norton has signed on to play Bruce Banner, who transforms into Marvel's renowned, larger-than-life Super Hero, The Hulk in Marvel Studios' action-packed, new big screen adaptation of The Incredible Hulk. The film, which is being directed by Louis Leterrier and distributed by Universal Pictures, is scheduled to smash into theaters on June 13, 2008.

"Edward Norton is a rare talent and one of the most versatile actors in the business. His ability to transform into a particular role makes him the ideal choice to take on the character of Bruce Banner/The Hulk. Edward is perfectly suited to bring one of the most popular and important Marvel icons to the big screen in a new and exciting way," said Kevin Feige, President of Production, Marvel Studios.

Under the visionary direction of Louis Leterrier (Transporter 2, Unleashed), The Incredible Hulk will return to the roots of the long-running comic series and television show.

The story unfolds when the pursuit for The Hulk - the world's most misunderstood, primal force of fury - heats up, finding Bruce Banner on the run attempting to cure his condition before his pursuers capture him.

He will next been seen in Pride and Glory (co-starring Colin Farrell). Other film credits include: Fight Club, The Painted Veil, The Illusionist, The Score, 25th Hour, Frida, Death to Smoochy, and The People vs. Larry Flynt.

Filming is slated to begin in Toronto this summer.

I wondering if Norton chose to do this role for the part, or because he had to do a film as part of his contract and his agent advised him that this would do well for his profile.

It was exactly what happened with The Italian Job.

That'd be hilarious, he comes onto the set wearing foam hulk hands that say "HULK SMASH" everytime he knocks them into semething, which he does frequently while the director is trying to talk.

I liked the cinematography, referencing a comic page, that's besides it. Horrid move, you have to at least be somewhat believeable for people to gain better understanding with the character.

The split screen shots in the movie fucking blew. Heh, I almost wrote blue. Also, it really sounded like the background music was really lacking or horrible. No sir, I didn't like it.

I hated Hulk. But then again, The Hulk is a pretty retarded character in the first place.

Give us that goddamn The Spirit movie already!
