Ed Norton out of The Avengers

Norton as hulk

Ed Norton will not be hulking out in The Avengers. Marvel announced over the weekend that this was “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.” OUCH! Norton’s own agent fired back soon after with this about marvel’s statement “[it's] unprofessional, disingenuous and clearly defamatory.” I was looking forward to seeing Norton as Bruce Banner again, despite any possible off-camera antics, he is always tremendous when the red-light is on. Speaking of The Avengers, check out Captain America’s dud’s here. Norton has responded on facebook. He said all the right things and now everyone can move on peacefully. It also looks like Joaquin Phoenix has been offered the role.

    Is Phoenix even fit to act right now?! Ed Norton is a class act and is first rate on screen. I love everything he does.

    I’m glad he took the high road. i think Joaquin should be good to go, his “documentary” is finished and looking for distributors now.
