Edward Norton Explains What Will Bring Him Back For ‘The Avengers’

By Kara Warner

Aside from online message boards and chat rooms, no one seems to want to talk about “The Avengers” these days (on the record, that is). While part of this is likely due to legality issues and punishment-of-death mandates from Marvel Studios, the other aspect is that it’s probably too soon for anyone to know anything — save rumored director Joss Whedon himself.

Nevertheless, MTV News continued our search for new information when we recently spoke to “Incredible Hulk” star Edward Norton about his new charitable fundraising portal, Crowdrise.com.

Norton said he hadn’t seen “Iron Man 2” yet, but planned to “check it out” as soon as he found time and could get a ticket. He also added that he hasn’t yet met or conversed with Whedon, but was kind enough to inquire about our thoughts on a Whedon-penned “Avengers.” (We deferred to the fan community’s undying love for Whedon properties).

Now, to the important question: whether he might be involved — or would even want to be involved — in any upcoming “Avengers” projects.

“Well, if people want it all to come together, they’ve got to email Marvel and say, ’This is what I want,'” Norton hesitantly responded.

So, you heard it here first, folks: In order to get Edward Norton into “The Avengers” as Bruce Banner, Marvel must be inundated with email requests… starting now.
