Ever since the moment “The Avengers” movie became official, there’s been speculation about what the plot will entail—specifically, what force could be so great that it would need the combined efforts of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the stars of the rest of Marvel’s solo movies to share the spotlight. The most obvious answer has always been Hulk, the green-skinned behemoth that first forced the eclectic group of heroes to team up in the comic book world.
When MTV News caught up with Edward Norton, the actor who brought Hulk (or rather, his alter ego Bruce Banner) to the big screen in 2008’s “Incredible Hulk,” we asked whether he could see the character return to the screen for a brawl with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
“In the comics, there was always a tension between the rest of the superhero community and he was always this problem… They treated him as this problem,” said Norton.
In Toronto to promote his well-received film “Leaves of Grass” at the International Film Festival, Norton said he could definitely see the Hulk character becoming something that the rest of Marvel’s superheroes joined forces to battle. After all, Hulk’s never been shy about telling the world he’s “the strongest there is.”
“I think that’s a fun way to go with it,” said Norton.
